Peachy Keen Stamps: Tutorial

If you are looking for My Creative Time's Day #3 of sneak peeks please click here.


Hello everyone! Today I am sharing a tutorial on how to make a homemade snow globe with your Peachy Keen Stamps.



Here is a picture of supplies needed to make the snow globe.


I first stamped and paper pieced the adorable snowman from PK-330 Snowman Doll Set. His pipe was stamped and paper pieced from PK-329 Chill Baby Chill Snowman Set. I colored the pipe, his nose, and his shoes in with Copic markers. I chalked his cheeks with Inkadinkado chalk ink. I also added a few white gel pen accents. Then I took it to my local Staples to be laminated. 


Cut around your laminated image. However, you do not want to cut too close to your image. If you do, water can seep in and ruin your image.


Using super glue, make sure you have a nice and tight seal on your lid. Any tiny space will allow water to come through. You may want to give the glue a bit of time to fully dry.


Once your lid is dry, use your glue gun to add your laminated image along with any accessories to the inside of the lid. I found this tree at Hobby Lobby in the miniature section and the lamp post at the Dollar Tree. Though I ended up having to switch to a different tree since this one turned my water blue.


Fill your jar with water and leave just a bit of room at the top. Then add a bit of Glycerin to your water. This helps your glitter fall slower. You can find Glycerin in the baking section of your local craft store usually. Pour in the glitter and use a spoon to mix it up.

Now glue your lid onto the jar and you've got a homemade snow globe. You can leave the lid plain our decorate it as I did. I decorated the lid with Recollection's polka dot ribbon, My Creative Time: Snowflake die, and a silver sequin from my stash.




This is what it looked like with the blue water caused by the tree. I didn't care for it, so as I mentioned earlier, my son helped me use the same concept and switch out the tree that wouldn't die the water a different color. I found it at the Dollar Tree


Here is what is looks like all shook up!! So pretty!! 


Here is another example of one I made using PK-1346 Picture Snow Day.

All the stamps used in the snow globes are Peachy Keen Stamps: October Specials!! So they are running a great sale on them along with many other fantastic Peachy Keen Stamps.  

I hope you all enjoyed my tutorial today and I have inspired you to try one of these yourself with your Peachy Keen Stamps!! 

Thanks for stopping by!! Happy stamping!!

My Creative Time: Sneak Peeks Day #2

Good morning! It's that time again!! It's day #2 of My Creative Time's 37th Edition Release!!! Today we will be showcasing a beautiful new set called "Boughs of Holly"!



For the base of my card, I used MCT: Stitched Rectanular Frame Dies. I used the largest one to cut out the gold paper and the middle sized one for the white paper.

I then embossed the white paper with a Cuttlebug: Grace's Frame embossing folder. I love the elegance that it creates!

Next, I used MCT: Pretty Spring Wreaths along with Recollection's Tinsel Gold Embossing Powder to create the foundation of the wreath.



I then layered two tones of green holly leaves using the smallest holly leave die from this new "Boughs of Holly" set onto the embossed wreath. Love how part of the gold peeks out from under the leaves.

I then cut out several gold little circles from the same set and a little bow from MCT: Hello Chickie Stamp Set to add to the wreath.

I finished the card by adding the sentiment from "Boughs of Holly" and MCT: Sit Back & Relax Stamp Set. Oh, and gold sequins from my stash.

Here are the challenge photos for you to draw inspiration from, with challenge details to follow.
I was inspired to create a home decor' piece using the ever so cute PK-141 Lil' Tweets Thanksgiving stamp set.

I purchased this rustic 5x7 frame on clearance from Michael's and knew I wanted to create a great Thanksgiving project with it. 

I stamped and paper pieced both of the turkeys with scraps I had lying around. I colored each one with Copic Markers and added white gel pen accents. I also chalked their cheeks with Inkadinkado chalk ink.

I stamped the sweet little prayer on to a label die cut from My Creative Time. I added brown ribbon to the base and gold sequins to the label. Both were from my stash.

I then used an EK Success corner punch and more gold sequins to embellish the corners of the pattern paper.

The daisy is from a Spellbinder's die. I cut out each petal and inked it with Memento: Dandelion ink. Then I added a small sequin to the center to match the picture.

The leaves were cut from a My Creative Time die and inked with coordinating Memento inks.



Well that's my project!! A super cute home decor' project that will brighten someone's home on the upcoming turkey day next month.

My Creative Time: Made In Minutes

Hi, today is Made In Minutes over on the My Creative Time blog

I have created a cute little treat for Halloween using MCT products that can be made in a matter of minutes.



For the base, I used MCT: Stitched Lollipop Holder Die.

I created the embellishment by first creating a small MCT: Scalloped Stitched Rosette. I then layered an orange spider web on top from MCT: Wicket Fun Dies. I then added a cute ghost from MCT: Stitched Spooky Ghost dies.

On the ghost, I first used Memento: Gray Flannel to ink the edges. I then stamped on an adorable face using Peachy Keen Stamps: The Uglies face assortment. I colored his eyes in with a Copic marker and chalked his cheeks.



I used MCT: Trio Stitched Banner dies for the sentiment banner. 

The "Happy Halloween" sentiment is from MCT: Trick or Treat stamp set.

I added Recollection's Witches Dust enamel dots to the banner and adhered it to my lollipop holder base.

I tied my lollipop holder together with black and white American Crafts Twine and added a orange Toosie Pop to the center. 

This is a fun and simple project to make thanks to Miss Emma's products!!

MCT: Designer's Challenge

Hi, today we have a Designer's Challenge over on the My Creative Time blog based on the picture below. You can create a project using inspiration from the photo, the colors, or whatever inspires you from it.

Photo Credit


So here is what I came up with.


I found this little bucket in the dollar section at Target. I wish I could have made a luminary but this will have to do. I first cut the pumpkin face from an svg in black card stock. I used Modge Podge to adhere it to the bucket. To create the eye balls, I used a larger circle from MCT: Picture Perfect and a smaller circle from MCT: Stitched Pretty Flowers and Leaves

I added a trim to the top of the bucket using MCT: Fun Stitched Edges and orange card stock. I added Recollection's Faux Jewels to the trim.


I cut out the super cute little ghost from MCT: Stitched Spooky Ghost Dies. I added a Peachy Keen Stamps: Cutie Pie face and chalked the cheeks. I added the ghost as well as a spider web from MCT: Wicked Fun Dies to a paper stray that also came from the Target dollar section.

Next, I stamped the "Happy Halloween" sentiment onto the tag from MCT: Teeny Tag Greeting Stamp Set. I then tied it to the straw using American Crafts Black and White twine.



I filled the bucket with black present paper and some yummy treats. I then stuck my decorated straw in the middle and now it is ready to be a spooktacular gift for Halloween!
