PEACHY KEEN CHALLENGE

Hope you are all having an excellent day.  I finally got my first set of Peachy Keen Stamps.  They are so cute.  I have been anxiously waiting for them.  I purchased the PK490 Everyday Character Face Assortment.  I thought it would be very versatile.  This is my first card using them and the PKS  challenge for this week is anything goes.  Here's my entry.


I used the large 1 3/8" face for my apple which I cut from red card stock using my Doodlecharms cartridge.  The apple is on page 118 and I cut it at 3".  To bling up the apple I used Stickles for accents on the leaf (Eucalyptus green) and highlights (Crystal).  I used a white Gel Pen to color the whites of his eyes.  I used a black Gel pen to faux stitch around the apple and around the card.  For dimension I adhered the apple with pop dots.

The card is cut 4x4 out of Martha Stewart 8x8 stack using a light green paper.  The second layer was a shade lighter from the same stack.  I used my Storybook cartridge to cut the scalloped edges from page 30 cut at 3 1/3".  I  ran it through my Cuttlebug to emboss the dots.  It's hard to really see the effect in the picture.

My embellishment is green DMC #730 embroidery floss threaded through a red button from my stash and tied in a bow.  I used a small glue dot to secure it.

My sentiment is hand written using a green gel pen.  I also faux stitched the sentiment so it would stand out. As you can see my next purchases should be some of the cool stamps that are available.  I do have some of Emma's at My Creative Time but the sentiments didn't seem right for this card.

Hope you enjoyed this card.  I think it turned out cute and it was quick, too.  Keep blogging with me and thanks for your comments.  
Bye Bye Until later, 
Kim
