Snow/Sky Background Tutorial

Hello everyone! It's my day to post at Peachy Keen Stamps and I am sharing a tutorial for a snow/sky background. 

Here is a pic of the card we will be making today.


SUPPLIES
Peachy Keen- PK-1443 Faceless Penguins
Chalk Ink in light blue 
Stamping blender brush
Scrap paper
Scissors
Copic Markers



To start with the background, I stamped the tree from the Faceless Flake and Christmas Tree stamp set onto my card mat to the left side. I also hand cut a piece of white scrap paper for the stencil line for the snow. 
Place the scrap piece of white over your card in the center and ink up the blender brush with the chalk ink. Using circular motions, ink in the sky with the blending brush. It's ok to go onto the tree a little as long as you're using a light color.
When the sky is all inked in, remove the white scrap paper and there you have it! A snow/sky background!

Now you will color the tree on the background, and stamp and color the extra tree and penguin. Cut them out with scissors along with another piece of scrap white for the snow. This doesn't have to be perfect, snow comes in all shapes and sizes LOL! Do make sure it is the width of your card mat though. 
Ink the edges of your small snow piece with the blue and then you're ready to assemble.

I mounted the second tree, penguin, and snow on pop dots to give this card lots of depth. After it's all put together, the last thing to do is stamp on the sentiment from the Holiday Sentiments stamp  set. 

Here is the card all finished. 



I hope you all enjoyed my tutorial and will try this technique for yourself! 
Thanks for visiting and Happy Stamping!

Happy Birthday Kathy!

Hello everyone! Today is Kathy Jakopovich's (AKA Owner of Peachy Keen Stamps) BIRTHDAY! We are having a birthday party over at the Peachy Place on Facebook if you'd like to come check out all the wonderful cards created for her and to wish her a Happy Birthday. 
HAPPY BIRTHDAY KATHY!!!!

Here is the card that I made for Kathy using the Faceless Chicks....one of my FAV stamp sets! And I just HAD to give that cute chick a clown face LOL!




This turned out so cute! I really love these cute chickens!
I stamped and paper pieced the Faceless Chicken and stamped the face using the Clownin Around 1 1/8 inch face stamp.
I mounted the chick to a frame I had in my stash and rounded the corners of the card.
The sentiments are stamped from the Clucks Sentiments and Sunny Side Up Sentiments. I added them on banners cut with Jaded Blossom's Mini Tag Dies 2

I hope you all will pop on over to the Peachy Place and wish Kathy a Happy Birthday.
Thanks for visiting and have a great day!

Here's To Spiked Eggnog and Mistletoe Kisses

Hello everyone! It's time for a new challenge at SVG Cutting Files. This time the challenge is "Anything Christmas"


I made this tag to go with a bottle of liquor for my girlfriend for Christmas. 



This turned out so super cute! That sentiment and face on the snowman together just cracks me up! 
I cut the Wine Bottle Tag from the set that happens to have 7 different designs! I also cut out the snowman from the Chibi Snowman set and stamped his face with a Peachy Keen Happy New Year face. (These faces happen to be on SPECIAL this month! See all the specials at PK HERE)
I cut out the sentiment banners from the Jaded Blossom Mini Tag Dies 2 set and stamped that awesome sentiment from the Bah Humbug stamp set. 
To finish, I added some brads to the sentiment banner and tied a bow at the top of the bottle.  


I hope you all liked my project and will play along in the challenge.
Have a great day!

Cookies For You

Hello everyone! It's my day to post at SVG Cutting Files and I am sharing a cookie treat box I made.




This turned out so cute and will make a fun treat to give at the holidays!
I started by cutting the Simple Treat Box and added decorative paper panels to the sides.
I cut the ginger from the Chibi Holiday Set 1 and stamped the face with a Peachy Keen Snowmany Face 1 1/8 inch stamp. I colored the lines and white highlights with a gel pen and added chalk to the cheeks. I also added an eyelet to the head and strung it on twine connecting it to the bow.
To close the box, I used a store bought bow that had a twist tie back. This fit through the holes perfectly. 
To finish, I stamped the sentiment from Jaded Blossom's Milk N Cookies and added the heart cut from the Valentine Dies.

I hope you all liked my project and thanks for visiting!
Have a great day!
