Let's Face it Friday - Flower Power {Challenge 12}

Here is what I used to make it.
I used the front page of a old paper pack to make the flower and made one similar to the one found here .
The middle of the flower (circle) was cut from the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge on my Cricut.
I just cut a regular piece of white cardstock and inked the edges red to make the tag.
I used the Wide Eyed Kids face stamp for the center of the flower.

I also inked all of the flower parts with red ink.

Here are the rules:

Thought it would be neat to compare.

I cut these for a friend of mine who doesn't have the Smiley Cards cartridge that is exclusive to the Gypsy right now. I thought I would surprise her and cut some and stamp them with my Peachy keen stamps. So here they are. While the original faces are very cute. I do like the Peachy Keen ones better. They are much easier to use with smaller cuts.

Let's Face it Friday - Think Spring {Handmade Gifts} Challenge

A puppy playing in the flowers says spring to me. Or it could mean the puppy is being naughty! That is why I picked a winking stamp.
The stamp set is PK-494 Everyday Character Face Parts from
Peachy Keen Stamps.
The box was cut from the Seasonal Easter Cartridge.
I hid the rabbit with hide contour with my Gypsy.
The puppy is cut at 4 inches from Four Legged Friends.
I hid the puppy's eyes with hid contour.
The paper is some old current paper I have had for years.
The paper has some real faint light blue flowers on it.
The (For You) stamp is from The Paper Studio / Stampabilities - Everyday Expressions.
It's a really nice set where the words are all separate and an can be put in any order you want.

Peachy Keen Stamps :: Sketch Challenge 46

This is for the Peachy Keen Challenge. It's a birthday card for my mom.

To make this card:
I used the Smiley Cards cartridge on my Gypsy. I cut the birthday cake at 3 inches.
For the face on the cake, I used the Peachy Keens PK-490 Everyday Character Face Assortment stamp set. I used 1 3/8" size.
The printed paper was from We R Memory keepers.
I used pink glitter paper for the icing.
The inside sentiment stamp is from Inkadikado, -friends and family are your whole life set.
I used a gold Martha Stewart glitter pen for the flames and edges of the card
Yellow skittles are used on the four corners of the card.
I used the Spots and Dots Embossing folder from Provo Craft.

Thank You Card

This is a card I made for a friend of mine. I used color pencils to color the butterfly. I plan to get Copics markers. It's just not in my budget right now, so the pencils will have to do. I also used Stickles to make it shine. I hope she likes it!
