MCT Thrifty Thursday

Hello! Today is Thrifty Thursday at MyCreativeTime. Thrifty Thursday means to "use your scraps". I used the scraps I had from THIS card. I cut the XL Label Die and then used the heart from the set called  100% Sweetness to make a window in the die cut. I backed that with patterned paper. 
I die cut and stamped the sentiment from Teeny Tag Greetings

I hope you have a fabulous day!!!

Hiya! It's PeachyKeen challenge time again! Our challenge this time is to create a card using hearts. Easy peasy! I kept my card super simple and stamped and paper pieced the absolutely adorable Thinking Of You Bear. I just love him/her! SO CUTE! :)
I stamped the love greeting from the January 2013 set on the heart. I then added glossy accents over top for shine. :)

MCT Designer Challenge

Hello! It's Designer Challenge time over at MyCreativeTime. This time our challenge is 123. Use 1 ribbon, 2 patterned papers, and 3 buttons. For my card I cut the XL Label Die out of  kraft cardstock. I then stamped and white heat embossed the numbers and month from the Whimsical Calendar Days set. The patterned papers are from the Love Story collection by Echo Park. I cut out the rose and little matching tag from some of the patterned paper in the collection.
I was going for SUPER girly on this card. And I don't care about bulk because I'm going to mail it in a padded mailer. This is for my Nana, so I really wanted to make it special! SOOOO I jazzed up the inside as well! :)
The greeting is from the 100% Sweetness set. I cut out another rose and added some bling. :) I hope my Nana loves it...I loved making it!

Please pop over to MyCreativeTime and play along! 

♥ Nikki ♥

p.s. I use THIS pen for all my white stitching. :)

My heart bubbles over for you

Hello! I had fun making this simple card with PinkByDesign stamps. I stamped the beaker from the Radioactive set. The hearts and sentiment are from the Mad Scientist set from PinkByDesign. I colored them in and used a spica glitter marker for sparkle. 
I covered the beaker with glossy accents so it looks like glass. The cardstock and ribbon are from PaperTreyInk

I hope you've had a lovely weekend!

a Peachy post! :)

Hiya Peachies! :) Nikki here with 2 cards today. For this first one I stamped the cutie peach from the Faceless Fruit set. I stamped it a few times on different patterned papers so I could paper piece it. The face is from the August 2012 set. I used my sakura stardust glitter pen to add sparkle the the glasses. You can see the sparkle here...
The greeting is from the fabulous new Fruits Sentiments One set. I stamped it and white heat embossed it. And here is the other card I made...
I cut out the adorable Tear Bear die. Then I gave teddy the cutest sad face ever from the new set called Teddy Bear Assortment. I stamped and paper pieced the kleenex box from the Bawlin Bunnies set. 
The greeting is from the new Get Well Bear set.  I also white heat embossed it. 

I hope your weekend is just PEACHY! :)

I'd be lost without you!

Hiya! I have a super simple card today, but I totally love it! :) I stamped the compass from the set aptly named Compass from MarketStreetStamps. I stamped it twice so I could paper piece the little heart. Like the stamp set I used yesterday, this one too is just 5 bucks! YEAH! 
I used my sakura stardust glitter pen to add sparkle to the compass. I also added glossy accents to the heart. The fabulous sentiment is from the new Lots Of Love set from MyCreativeTime.

Just me, thinking of you...

Hello. For my card today I stamped and paper pieced the light bulb from the Bright Side set by MarketStreetStamps. Isn't that the cutest image?! It's just 5 bucks! SCORE! :) I used papers from the Sunshine collection from My Mind's Eye. 
The sentiment is from the new Lots Of Love set from MyCreativeTime. I thought it went perfectly with the light bulb...which makes me think of thinking. LOL. Ding! Light bulb moment! {ahh Oprah}... I used my silver sakura pen for the metal bottom part. And to finish, I added a punched heart with some glossy accents on it.

Thank You

Hello! Here's another card made with the fabulous new Hexagons Background from Hero Arts. I stamped it on script patterned paper and heat embossed it with clear powder. I used my ink blending tools and tattered rose and bundled sage distress inks to add color. I wanted to get a vastly different look than the really bright and vibrant card I made with this background the other day. I die cut the tag from the Tag Dies by MyCreativeTime. I embossed it with the So Trendy embossing folder. 
I inked up the Studio Calico Mistable Butterflies with the same distress inks. I stamped the tattered rose ones with the Zig Zag background from Hero Arts. And the bundled sage one with the Hexagon Background. The greeting is from the Year Round Greetings set from Hero Arts.

Thinking of You

Hello! I hope you're having a great Saturday. :)........When I saw this new Hexagon Background from Hero Arts I just had to have it! I LOVE it! I stamped it and white heat embossed it. Then I used tumbled glass, shabby shutters, and chipped sapphire distress markers to color it. I misted it with perfect pearls and water in a mini mister for some sparkle. The greeting is from the Year Round Sentiments set by Hero Arts.

PeachyKeen Release Party!!! :)

Hello! It's release time again at PeachyKeenStamps!!! We are celebrating with a release party over at the PeachyKeen Connection. We have a challenge for you to participate in for a chance to win some prizes! The challenge is to make a project with something NEW. You can use new stamps, a new technique, new paper....anything new to you. I first made this birthday card with the new Happy Birthday BIG set. I stamped and white heat embossed the greeting and inked it up with peacock feathers and salty ocean distress inks. 
I also stamped and white heat embossed the fabulous Celebration Background. I also used peacock feathers and salty ocean distress ink to ink it up. And I made another super simple card...

This photo makes this card look weird. I swear it's pretty in real life! I stamped the cute love lollipop from the new January 2013 set a few times using toffee crunch memento ink and soft pool shadow ink from Hero Arts. I wanted the "chocolate" one to look like it was in cellophane, so I coated it with glossy accents. It really looks neat in real life. promise!
I just adore glossy accents! Anyhoo...I hope you will pop over to the PeachyKeen Connection and play along with us!!!
