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!!!
