PeachyKeen Sneaks!!!

Hello Peachy friends!!! It's sneak peek time again. You guys are going to LOVE this release! EEK! For this first card I used the new June 2013 set. I stamped and paper pieced the sweet little bucket and shovel. I made them look like a baby pool I had when I was little.
The greeting on this card is also from the new June 2013 set. And here's my next card with the new release....
I had a BLAST making this card! I started by inking the background a.k.a. my water with the following distress inks...tumbled glass, broken china, shabby shutters, salty ocean, peacock feathers, faded jeans, and chipped sapphire. Yep, all those inks! Too bad the photos don't show the real colors. Bummer. Anyhoo, I flicked water onto my background to make it look more watery. :) And then I stamped and colored the CUTE little marine creatures from the new June 2013 set. AREN'T THEY THE CUTEST EVER??!!!! I used my little ink daubers and Hero Arts shadow inks in butter bar, orange soda, and pale tomato to color them. 
Those faces??? Well, they're in the new June 2013 set as well. DYING OF CUTE OVERLOAD!!! :) I put the octopus on a wobble to he can swim and wiggle. The greeting on this one is from a new set called Fish Bowl.  
And here's one last little sneak for today. I stamped the Cloudy Day background with Hero Arts shadow ink in Tide Pool. Then I stamped and paper pieced the palm tree from the new June 2013 set. Just a quick little card. :) 

Pop over to the PeachyKeen Blog to see more sneaks!

Have a PEACHY day!

p.s. I just love when all white cardstock becomes something completely different like my 2nd card today. YAY for stamping!!! :)


  1. WOW! They are all fantastic! Great "inky" ideas too-

  2. Always amazing! Not one but 3 projects. #1 great paper piecing and like your baby pool :D #3 I like the Cloudy Day stamp and the paper pieced palm tree. Nice simple card. #2 I like how you turned white paper into under the sea. The drops did make it look bubbly and great idea to add a wobble!
