PKS February Release Day 4






Welcome back!  It’s day #4 of sneak peeks at PKS, and we hope you’ve enjoyed them as much as we have enjoyed bringing them to you.  We are ALL anxious for tomorrow to get here so that we can share this release to you in its entirety!  These new stamps go live at 8 a.m. CST on the Peachy Keen Stamps website.
For our  final day of sneak peeks,  we bring you projects that were created with the Window with Shutters and the House with Spare Windows stamp sets..



I stamped the window onto wood grain paper using the Window and Shutters stamp set using VersaMark Ink. I used brown chalk to go over the inking and it gave it that fun shaded look. I used an X-Acto knife to cut out the window centers and hand cut the outside. I stamped another window onto white paper and used a dauber to ink in the window centers and then glued the 2 together. 
I hand cut the flower box out of wood grain paper and stamped the sentiments using the House With Spare Windows add on set. The flowers were stamped from the NEW PKSC-26 February 2014 SOTM set. I hand cut strips of green for the flower stems and grass. To finish, I mounted it all on pop dots to the background that I embossed and inked using the Tim Holtz Brick embossing folder. 


For my second card I used the House With Spare Windows stamp set. This was a really quick card to make and I love all the colors. 
I stamped the windows in different colored ink and used a pin to pierce the dotted line around the mat. 
I stamped the sentiment using the Wright Avenue stamp set onto a My Craft Spot Ribbon Banner Die-Straight and added a ribbon. 

Well, that about does it for sneak peeks

WOW both of your cards are amazing. I love them each for their own reasons. The 1st one because of the fantastic look your achieved with these amazing new stamps to give that shabby chic look. The 2nd one because to me has the look of Vintage and I love the ribbon etc.
