Peachy Keen July Release Party Challenges

Hello everyone! Did you get to attend the Release Party at The Peachy Keen Connection? Well, if you didn't, no worries! You can still come play along in the challenges for a chance at a Peachy Keen Gift Certificate! And if you haven't seen the new stamps yet, you can see them all HERE and they're all on sale!

This is the card that I made for Lorie's challenge. This challenge is to create a Christmas card but you CAN'T use RED or GREEN.
I stamped and paper pieced that adorable snowman using the new July SOTM set. I added some stickles to his hat and did a dotted pen line around the mat. The snowflake was cut from Winter Lace and I added glitter to it. I stamped the sentiment onto a circle mat using My Craft Spot's Tiny Doilies Dies and added it with a pop dot to the snowflake.
I also added some ribbon and a paper clip to the card.

For the second challenge hosted by Cindy, you are to create a Summer Vacation themed project. 
I made this fun surf board card. 
I used a SVG Cutting Files file called Surfer Boy Corey for all the cuts. I created the card by welding 2 surf boards together and stamped the background with the Peachy Keen Tropical Floral stamp set. I stamped the face using Peachy Keen's Wide Eyed Kids 1 1/8 inch stamp set and the sentiment and star fish are from the June SOTM set. To finish I added some twine around the surf board and a wooded arrow the I inked to color it.

I am going to enter this card into the SVG Cutting Files June Heat Wave Challenge.

I hope you all liked my cards and will play along in the challenges! Have a great weekend!
