Hillbilly Holler Get Well Card


Today, I thought I’d share a get well card that I made for my Uncle who isn’t feeling very well right now.

It’s from the Peachy Keen Hillbilly Holler Set One – SY900.

To the left is the front of the card. On the bottom is the inside of the card.

For both cards, I stamped the images using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto special cardstock used for Copics, Spectrum Noir and Prismacolor Pencils.

Next I coloured both images in with Prismacolor Premier coloured pencils and then used some Gamsol and blending stumps to blend the colours.

Lastly, I stamped both of the sentiments from the same stamp collection.

Hope you like it!

Deer and Xmas Tree


Deer and Tree

To make this card I used Peachy Keen PKSC-11 November 2012 for the reindeer and coloured them in with Copics, Spectrum Noir Markers and Prismacolor Premier coloured pencils.

The Christmas tree was stamped from Peachy Keen collection Fun ‘n’ Flair Stamps (FNF-01 Miss Shayla at Christmas Time) and then coloured in with Copic markers. Next, I added in the snow on the branches with Aleene’s Glitter Snow and added some pearls for the Christmas tree balls.

The snow is made with paper from Glitter Paper from “The Paper Studio Christmas Cardstock Pack”.  I cut it and then offset the curves and highlighted the top lower layer with some blue ink.

The sentiment is made from Peel Offs and the background is from the Recollections Frost card and envelope collection.

Free Snow Hugs


Free Snow Hugs

I was inspired to do this card after seeing the snowman and the sentiment from Peachy Keen Stamps.

SnowHugs

I created this card by first embossing the background using PK-1349 Woodland Birch Background stamp and Winter White embossing powder.

The 2 reindeer were from PKSC-11 November 2012 and the snowman and sentiment are from PK-1412 Snow Hugs Snowman.

The snow was made using glitter paper and the snow at the base of the reindeer hoofs is Snow-Tex. I used some glitter sprinkles for the hat and buttons.

To colour the reindeer and the snowman, I used Copic Markers and Prismacolor Premier Coloured Pencils.

Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year!

 

Reindeer Elf Card


Hi There,

Here is a Step card that I made using the Step Die from Local King Rubber Stamps.

Then I used Peachy Keen Stamps monthly stamp set from:

PKSC-11 November 2012 to create the design.

I put in several shots here so that you could see it at different angles.

Close up ReindeerClose up Elf

I used Black Tuxedo Memento ink to stamp the images. Then coloured them in using Copic markers and Prismacolor Premier Coloured Pencils.

I used scraps of design papers that I had and used glitter paper for the snow.

Then I added a little bit of Snow-Tex at the hoofs of the reindeer.

Happy Hallowe’en 2014


Halloween 2014 Front Halloween 2014 Inside

Hi There,

Here is my latest addition for a Hallowe’en card to the vet this year from “Boo” our black cat.

To make the card I used orange cardstock. I then layered the front with some paper from Doodlebug Design Inc. Hallowe’en Parade.

Used my Cuttlebug and Nesting circle cutting die to cut a hole through the front of the card. I used a smaller circle die and some yellow cardstock to make the moon on the inside of the card.

I used Mememto ink to stamp the pumpkin using a stamp from PKSC-09_September 2012. Then I used copic markers to colour and outline the stamp. For the face I used PKSC-22_October 2013.

Next I used just the face portion of the cat from PK-1333 Faceless Puppy and Faceless Kitten and the kitten face that also came with the stamp. Coloured in the stamp using Spectrum Noir markers.

The ghosts were made using PK-131 Happy Haunting Ghosts.

PK and PKSC are all stamps from Peach Keen Stamps.

Lastly, I added a few embellishments to finish off the card.

Happy Hallowe’en everyone!

Peachy Keen XMas Card for my “Dear”


Todd_Xmas

Hi Everyone,

Thought I’d share the card I made for my husband using the Peachy Keen Stamp set from PKSC-11 November 2012 set for both the deer and the sentiment.

Spectrum Markers that I used to colour the fur are:

Gold Brown (GB) 1,2,3  chest \ antlers, fur 8,9,10,11. Mouth Bright Pink (BP) 1, 3. Nose Ice Grey (IG) 6,7 and for the cheeks and inner ears, I mixed in Coral (CR) 4.

For the snow, I used Glittered Christmas Cardstock from “the Paper Studio” and then ripped the paper to simulate snow drifts and then layered them onto the cardstock from “Recollections” card pack. I then added in some little sparkle trees.

Hope you like it!!!

Happy Birthday Clown Card


Image

Hi There,

I’m entering this into the Peachy Keen contest for using their new June Stamp Release. I decided to make a clown Happy Birthday card. I stamped the Happy Birthday several times to create the impression that the clowns were singing “Happy Birthday”.

For this card, I used the stamps from PKSC-30 June 2014.

I used my Spectrum Markers to colour the clowns.

For Faces I used Gold Brown (GB) 4,5,6; Flesh (FS) 1,2,3,4; Tan(TN) 2,3,4. The cheeks were coloured with Coral (CR)4.

The clowns outfits were coloured using various other Spectrum marker colours. For the pompoms at the top of the clown hats, I used “FlowerSoft”.

I used my Cricut to cut out the world from the “Going Places” cartridge and surrounded the clowns around it.

I cut out various circles with my “Lifestyle Crafts L” Nested Circle cutting dies and used some coloured cardstock that I had on hand and then layered them. I then used an “Action Wobble Spring” behind the world so that you can spin the clowns.

The birthday paper background is from “Birthday Wishes Specialty Collection”.

Hope you like it!

Happy Father’s Day


Happy Father's Day

Hi Everyone,

Here is the Father’s Day card I made for my dad this year using Peachy Keen Stamps.

I used the following stamp sets:
PK-1388 Gone Fishin’
PK-1387 Up a Creek and Camper
Waves were cut with blue cardstock using my Fiskar’s punch.
I then used Stampin Up! Pacific Point ink pad to give it some texture.
The raccoon, boat and fish were coloured in using my Spectrum markers and Prisma Coloured pencils.
I raised the waves with pop dots and used some coloured twine to hook the fish.

Hope you like it!

Get Well Card

I created this card for my sister-in-law who had a hip operation and my friend who broke her ankle. Peachy Keen came out with these stamps in May and I just fell in love with them.

The outhouse stamp is called R-32 Lg. Outhouse. Little raccoon faces on the front of the card are from the set PK-1393 Raccoon Face and Head Assortment.

I also used the following Peachy Keen sets. PK-1391 Burnt Out Camping Raccoon for the sentimental saying, PKSC-29 May2014 – Raccoon and S’more.

I used a combination of my Spectrum Markers and Prisma Coloured Pencils to colour in the images.
