Owl Birthday Card Using Spiced Sunshine Stamps

Hello Sunshine! Here's a fun birthday card for all of you OWL lovers out there! Using the current Peachy Keen Challenge, I came up with this fun birthday card. I turned the sketch upside down on this one and moved the sentiment a bit to make room for my dew drops. 

Here's a look at the inside of the card:

And here's a picture of the finished card:

I sanded the card down for a different look. Notice how the sentiment follows the edge of the circle? I love that you can bend the stamp a bit to get a different look. 

Materials Used:
Neenah Cardstock
My Minds Eye
Spiced Sunshine Stamps
The Robins Nest Dew Drops

Joy Love Peace Christmas Tree

Happy Thursday crafty pals! Today I'd like to share a sneak peek for Spiced Sunshine Stamps next release. I decided to get a jump start on my Christmas cards this year, with this adorable sentiment tree!
I cut my card base then cut the dotted patterned paper a bit smaller than the face of the card. I inked my tree image using 3 different color greens. I stamped my tree image, stamped the trunk bottom center, and cut it to size. I stamped the star twice. Once on the top of the tree then again on patterned paper. I cut the star out on the inside of the line so it could fit inside the stamped image on the tree (use double sided foam adhesive for depth...I forgot to). I add my dew drops and a twine bow to finish off the card. 
Supplies Used:
Spiced Sunshine Stamps
DCWV Spring and Summer Stack
The Robins Nest Dew Drops
The Twinery Twine
Neenah Cardstock
Memento Ink

I'm entering this card into these challenges:

Happy Birthday Lorie!

Hi crafty friends! As most of you may or may not know, I'm a hard core Peachy Keen fan...very much addicted! I really am in need of an intervention program!  And right now a PKS gal is doing some celebrating! With some secretive work from the Peachy Queen herself (Kathy), this Birthday Blog Hop became possible! 

Having said that...This week a PKS member, I won't name names, (ahem....Lorie...shhh!) celebrated her 50th BIRTHDAY! Being the PKS fan that I am, you are probably wondering why I didn't use my PKS for Lorie's card. Well, I can explain...the answer is...I just couldn't decide what stamps to use! I sat for days trying to decide. I would take out sets, and lay em out then stare blankly at my craft table. I'd put em away and then repeat that process. For days...Then it hit me...keep it simple, use one of my own images and sentiment designs, and include all my favorite crafting embellishments on it!

Here's the front of the card:

As you may or may not be able to see...My favorite crafting items are Copics, embossing (on white cardstock), glitter (bees wings), twine, banners, and Dew Drops. I was able to get all of them onto this card! Lol!

Here's a look at the inside sentiment:
Don't know if this card made it's way to Lorie in time for her birthday, since it was really me racing against the clock trying to decide! But there ya have it! Happy 50th Birthday my PKS pal!

Images and Sentiment are from Digi Digi Doodle by Thia Gielow.

Stitched Stamp Fun

Hi crafty friends! The new Peachy Keen sets are here and I've paired it with some Spiced Sunshine Stamps to spice up my card with stitching. Since I love how stitching looks on cards, I created some stitched stamps to save time and get those perfect lines. If you'd like to check them out, visit my website at

Since I have a friend who loves Halloween whose birthday is coming up next month, I decided to create this card for her using PKSC-32 August 2014 set by Peachy Keen. I am in love with Kathy's stamps...they are cute, fun, and the polymer is the best out there hands down!

Here's my card:
