My Creative Challenge: Picture/Color Challenge

 
Hi, today over on the My Creative Time blog is a photo/color challenge based on the picture below. You can create a project using inspiration from the photo, the colors, or both!
 
 
 
Here is what I came up with-

 

 
When I saw the picture I automatically thought of creating a little orange using the MCT: Bunch of Fun Circles and MCT: Pretty Stitched Flowers and Leaves. I added a cute Peachy Keen face to it and chalked her cheeks. Then I finished her look by adding a little twine bow.
 
For the tag base, I used MCT: Just Tags. I added white gel pen stitching to the bottom layer of the tag.
 
 
 
I framed the little orange with MCT: Stitched Mini Frame I then added the part of the sentiment "You're sweet as honey" from MCT: Bee Happy Stamp Set.
 
I then adhered the little tag to a bag the candied orange slices.
 
I finished the project by adding a cute little MCT: Fun Sized Scallop Stitched Bow to the bag and added a faux pearl.
 
For more amazing inspiration please head on over to Miss Emma's blog!!
 
Have a wonderful day!! Happy Creating!!

Peachy Keen Stamp Challenge


We have a brand new Peachy Keen Stamp Challenge for you!! We hope you will come join in on the fun!!

Here’s how the new challenge is going to work.  We’re taking our two of our  popular challenges, the sketch challenge and photo inspiration challenge and combining them.  (PLEASE NOTE that just for fun, in future challenges we may change this up.)  We’ll give you the choice to follow the sketch provided,  you can use the photo,  color palette, or any combination for endless opportunities in your creative process.   Just decide what part of the challenge inspires you and create whatever you’d like.  Card, home decor, scrapbook layout, WHATEVER.  It’s totally up to you.   Please remember that you DON’T HAVE to use Peachy Keen Stamps to play along with our challenge, but we love it when you do!
Here are the challenge photos for you to draw inspiration from, with challenge details to follow.
First up is the sketch.  Feel free to rotate it, flip it, or change it up however you’d like just as long s the basic elements of the sketch are still part of your creation.


Here is what I came up with based on the sketch and using most of the colors.




I just love these super cute zombies that Kathy has created and thought that I wanted to create a zombie card with this super cute sentiment.

I first stamped and paper pieced the super cute little zombies from PKS-Faceless Zombie Kids 2 by Jessica Weible. For the little zombie girl I used the new PKS-Zombie Face Assortment. I also used Copic markers are a few parts of each one.

 
I then stamped on the sentiment from PKS-Halloween Sentiments and Label onto the grave stone from PKS-Ye Old Boneyard. I added white gel pen stitching and white dots to it as well.
 
I stamped on just the drippy goo from the PKS-Happy Halloween Background stamp onto the green card stock with Memento Black Ink.
 
I added black grass that I cut out using my Cuttlebug and the MCT: Stitched Grass Die.
 
I embellished the corners with Recollection's Halloween Enamel Dots.



Guidelines:
  • Designs must be new and created for this challenge, AND only 1 entry per person is allowed for challenges.
  • Create the project of your choice using the sketch above, the photo above, or the color palette included with the photo as your inspiration. The colors are only suggested, so feel free to use them or not. Just choose what inspires YOU and create away, but please DO  let us in on your creative process!

My Creative Time: Color/Photo Challenge

Hi, today over on the My Creative Time blog we have a Color/Photo Challenge. We have to create a photograph based on the following photograph.

 
 
Here is what I came up with using these beautiful colors!
 
 
 
For the base I first started with a 4 3/4" by 4 3/4" Kraft card stock square card. I then added my blue and yellow card stock squares to the base.
 
I then cut out the striped pattern paper using MCT: 4x4 Journal Die and More.
 
I added the sentiment from MCT: Loyal Friends Stamp Set to the MCT: Large Cloud Bubble Edge Die. I also added the little cut out paw prints from Loyal Friends too.
 
I then added the grass from MCT: Stitched Grass Die.
 
 
 
I cut the dog house and cute little dog also from MCT: Loyal Friends Stamp Set. I added the cute little face to the dog using Peachy Keen Stamps: Happy-Go-Lucky Dog face assortment.
 
Once I added the dog house and dog to the card, I added the ribbon to the bottom and put the little heart from MCT: Sweethearts and XOXO's dies.
 
Thank you so much for stopping by!! I hope you have a wonderful day!! For more amazing design team inspiration please head on over to Miss Emma's Blog!

Peachy Keen Stamps: Halloween Release Blog Hop




Welcome Friends to the Peachy Keen Stamps Halloween Release for 2014.
The time has FINALLY arrived!  We’re here and we’re ready to get hopping!  We’ve shared four fabulous days of sneak peeks with you and we’ve been as exited as we could be for the time when we could show you EVERYTHING!  If you’re a Stamp of the Month Club member then you’ve already had a look at the SOTM set. All of these perfectly coordinated stamps are NOW available in the Peachy Keen Shop, and even better, you can grab all your favorites from the August Release at 20% off.  SWEET!!

You should have arrived here from Gigi's Blog, if you’re hopping along in the set order, but if you just happened upon this post then you can go back to the beginning at The Peachy Keen Stamps Blog and start from there so you don’t miss any wonderful project.

This whole release is so spectacular! If any one can make zombies look cute, it's Kathy! I think they are the cutest little zombies I've ever seen! I just knew I had to create a project using them.

NOW share my project for the hop!


I just knew I wanted to create a graveyard and I found the perfect cut file from SVG cutting files to go along with Kathy's amazing creations.

I first cut out each piece of the cut file with various card stock I had. I added white chalk ink to the trees, the base, and fence.

I then added the amazingly creepy sentiments and images from PK-Ye Old Boneyard, PK-Halloween Sentiments and Labels, and PK-August 2014 Stamp of the Month Set to the tombstones and then inked the sides with black memento ink.



I then colored and cut out each zombie kid from PK-Faceless Zombie Kids 1 and 2 by Jessica Weible. Their faces are from the new amazing PK-Zombie Face Assortment. I took a bit of black ink and dirtied them up a bit with it. I then added them to the trees.

I finished by adding the label and sentiment from PK-Halloween Sentiments and Labels anto the front of the fence.

It is meant for cupcakes to go in it but I thought Halloween candy was more appropriate for this project.

PRIZE ALERT :: PRIZE ALERT :: PRIZE ALERT
We want to say thank you to all our loyal peachy friends by offering a little something to say thanks for hopping along with us. For every comment you leave here and on the designer blogs, you'll receive one entry for a chance to win a $50 Gift Certificate from PKS. We'll choose one winner randomly from all the comments.

These new halloween characters that Kathy has created are so spooktacular!! I just love them! I just knew that I wanted to work with these cute little ghosts, the mad scientist, and the scary pumpkin from the new August stamp of the month set.
 
I first started off with a 5x7 card base. For the background paper I used the haunted house from The Paper Loft's Haunted Trick or Treat Set. It helped create the perfect scene for these characters.
 
 
I then colored and cut out each little Peachy Keen character and pop dotted them onto the card base.
 
I then cut out the sentiments using My Creative Time's Stitched Oval Die and adhered it to the ribbon.
 
I finished by added a couple of buttons to the corner to match the scientist.
