Peachy Keen Stamps and Miss Kate Cuttables Holiday Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to my stop on the Peachy Keen Stamps and Miss Kate Cuttables Holiday Blog Hop. 

Today I am sharing a project that I created with the fabulous die cuts from Miss Kate Cuttables, combined with the awesome face stamps from Peachy Keen Stamps.  If you would like to join us on this super fun hop, click on over to the Peachy Keen Stamps blog for the details and to get started.
I decorated this tin with the Jolly Holiday SVG, that I cut on my Sillhouette, from Miss Kate Cuttables and combined it with the Everyday Character Face Parts from Peachy Keen Stamps.   

I covered my tin with some embossed cardstock that I embossed with the Winter Flurry embossing folder from Taylored Expressions and what I have left of some Christmas papers from Imagenisce.  Here is a closer look at my cutie patootie reindeer.....


I inked him up with some Colorbox fluid chalk and then stamped his face and added some pink chalk to the cheeks and white pen details for his eyes and cheeks.  Isn't he the cutest??  I don't know whether to fill him with cookies and give him away, or keep him for myself.  To finish off my tin I added some light green twill ribbon and added a button and Solid Natural bakers twine from The Twinery.

Now, what fun is a blog hop without a FABULOUS prize??

The Peachy Keen Stamps prize for one lucky blog hopper is a $25.00 Gift Certificate for each day of comments and then at the end of our event, ONE lucky blog hopper will win a $75.00 Gift Certificate from all the comments for the week.

How does that sound??  Well, you better leave a comment here and then hop on over to the Peachy Keen Stamps blog to leave a comment and also to find out where you can go to leave more comments for more chances to win.

Have a great day!!

Hugs,
Amy

Thankful Pumpkin Card

Hi friends!!  Thanksgiving here in the US is getting close.....just 5 more days.  It is my favorite holiday because of the opportunity we have to spend time with family and friends without the pressure of gifts and lets not forget all of the awesome food

Here is a pretty little thankful card that I created with some of the new November release products from Taylored Expressions.  

I used the new Tag-a-long Autumn stamps and dies along with the new Burlap embossing folder from Taylored Expressions.  I colored in the pumpkin image with my Copic markers and added some white pen details.  Here is a closer look at my card.....

To finish off the card, I added a sentiment tag with the Banner Stacklets 3 and adhered it with a brad.  I added some machine stitching and tied it all up with some hemp twine and a button.

I am so glad to be back online.....our internet went out for several days and I felt mostly unconnected from the world....with the exception of my super old smart phone.  ;) 

I hope that you have a great weekend!!

Hugs,
Amy

Fall Mail

Hello friends!!  I think Fall is my favorite time of the year....the cool crisp air and changing of the leaves.  There is nothing else like it......I just wish it would last a little longer.  

Today, I am sharing a card that really reminds me of Fall using the new You've Got Mail - Fall stamp from Taylored Expressions.  Hopefully it can help me cling to Fall a little bit longer.

I used my Copic markers to color in the image.  I added some white pen details with the Sakura Gelly Roll pen.  The green background is embossed with the new Burlap embossing folder from Taylored Expressions.  Take a closer look at the image.......

The patterned paper is Harvest Lane from Simple Stories.  To finish off my card, I added some machine stitching, pen stitching with my Zig pen, and then I used some ribbon from Stampin' Up! along with a little hemp twine and a button.

I hope this card reminds you of Fall a little bit longer....even if there is snow on the ground outside.  :)

Hugs,
Amy
