Wishing You Sunshiny Days

Hello everyone! It's my day to post at Digi My World and I have a cheerful card to share. I used the Kawaii Flowers Digital stamp set for this card.



This card is so bright and cheerful it just makes me smile.
I printed and cut out the Kawaii Flower using my Cameo. I colored it with Copic markers and added it to a mat that was cut using the Jaded Blossom Card Mat Dies. I added some ribbon and bow to the center of the card before adding my stamp and mat. 
I cut the sentiment mat from the Card Mat Dies and stamped the sentiment from the Happy Summer stamp set. 
I hope you enjoyed seeing my card and thanks for visiting!
Have a great day!

Summer Time Treats

Hello everyone! I am sharing a fun project I made with another super cute Squaredy Cat. This one's name is Zanie! She is a multi-colored cutie pie! And I just LOVE her sunglasses!



This was a super fast and fun project to make. I cut Zanie out and added some highlights with a white gel pen. I also added some Glossy Accents to her glasses.
The topper was created with the Layered Frame and Journal Die. I folded a piece of paper in half and then lined up the fold just inside the the edge of the die so when I cut it out, it left the top folded together. 
I added the topper to a 3X4 Clear Bag filled with Laffy Taffy. 
I cut the flag using the Treat Flag Die and added a straw to it. I stamped the sentiment onto the tag using the Happy Summer stamp set and colored it with Copic markers. 
I hope you enjoyed seeing my project and thanks for visiting!
Have a great day!

2nd Grade Is Going To Rock!

PEACHY KEEN CHALLENGE POST JUST BELOW!

Hello everyone! It's time for a new challenge at SVG Cutting Files. This month the challenge is to create a Back To School Treat. 



Here is what I created for this challenge. 



I created the bag topper by using the new Jaded Blossom Candy Caddy Die. I cut the die in half and glued them together to the 1st score line. Then I added 2 packages of Pop Rocks to an A2 Card Sleeve and glued the bottom of the die over the top of the bag. 
I cut the apple from the Kawaii Nerdy School file and stamped the face with a Peachy Keen Clowning Around face stamp. I added a ribbon and bow and stamped the sentiment from the Jaded Blossom School Rocks stamp set. 

I hope you all liked my project and will play along in the challenge!
Thanks for visiting and have a great day!

Happy Summer

Hello everyone! We are getting back to our new schedule for the challenges at Peachy Keen. We are now going to have 1 challenge a month, so you have more time to play! There will be a sketch AND Inspiration Picture to choose from. You can use any or all if you wish. 

Here is the sketch and inspiration picture for this month's challenge

 

I chose to work with the inspiration picture. I LOVE summer and am trying to hold onto it as long as possible! LOL!
Here is what I created 



I stamped the umbrella, sand pail, and shovel using the PKSC-18 June 2013 SOTM set. This is one of my fav stamp sets, it's so fun!
I paper pieced all of the images and then stamped the faces with the NEW Christmas In July Face Assortment stamps! YUP! They're NOT just for Christmas! They sure are cute on these!
I created a background using the inspiration picture and added glittery sand to the sand bucket, the bottom, and top edge of the brown. I stamped the sentiment onto a banner that I cut by hand and added some twine to the bottom. 

I hope you all will play along in the challenge and thanks for visiting!
Have a great day!

Snowman Gift Bag

Hello everyone! Today I am sharing a project I did with the NEW Peachy Pieces. What are Peachy Pieces? They are SVG's that are designed from Kathy J's (Creator of Peachy Keen Stamps) stamps. You can see what they have in the store right now HERE.

I made this adorable gift bag for my project today



I LOVE this snowman! She is so cute with her stringy hat, mitten, and scarf.
I cut out the Smile Snowman Pieceable at 4 1/2 inches and stamped her face with the new Christmas In July face assortment. I added some highlights with Copic markers and gave her jingle bell brads on her belly. 
I stamped the background of the bag using the stamps out of the Smile Snowman stamp set and added red dots with a Copic Marker. 
To finish, I added a decorative strip to the bottom of the bag and a bow to the handle. 
I hope you all enjoyed seeing my project and thanks for visiting.
Have a great day!

Squaredy Cat GiGi

Hello everyone! I have a fun project to share with you today!
Have you seen all the super cute new Squaredy Cats at SVG Cutting Files? There are so many to choose from that there's something for everyone! 
This particular one I HAD to do! Why you ask? Because her name is GIGI!!! I couldn't believe it! My name is not very common so when I come across something with my name, I am super excited!

So here she is.....a gift for you from GiGi!


































I started this project with the Smart Cookie Treat Box. I cut it out and added panels of designer paper.
I cut out GiGi and inked her up. I also added some white whiskers and definition on her paws with a Versa Mark pen.
I cut the sentiment tag using the Jaded Blossom Mini Tag Dies and stamped the sentiment from the Gift Cards Galore stamp set. I added the tag to a bow and flower that I pop dotted to the box. 

I hope you all liked seeing my GiGi project today and thanks for visiting!
Have a great day!
