Peachy Keen "Let's Face it Friday" Challenge

I purchased my Peachy Keen stamps last November and had never taken them out of the package. I thought these are such cool stamps, I have to do something with them. So, for the first time, I'm going to participate in the Peachy Keen "Let's Face it Friday" Challenge.

The rules:
  1. Create a Thank You card
  2. Project must include Peachy Keen Faces
  3. Design must be new and made for this challenge
  4. Must be uploaded before January 20th
Here's my submission:

All paper, cardstock and ink are from Stampin' Up. The patterned paper is from Raspberry Lemonade, which is retired, but I just ordered it last week at a great discount through the online clearance rack. I love the colors.

I started with an A2 size card base in Crushed Curry cardstock. I used the Rock Princess Cricut cartridge and cut the heart at 3 1/4". I inked the edges of the heart with Melon Mambo ink. I glued the layers together, added gem stones from Hobby Lobby to the crown, and used the PK-490 Everyday Faces Assortment and stamped the face. I used my Gellie Roll pen and filled in the whites of the eye and added the stitching to the bow and crown. I put the heart aside.

I cut the back ground paper at 4 x 5 1/4 and inked the edges with Melon Mambo ink. Then on a 3/4" piece of patterned paper I stamped and embossed the Hugs & Kisses border stamp (I can not find the name or manufacturer of this stamp set, so if anyone knows who it is, please let me know) using Versamark and Ranger detail white embossing powder . I rounded the corners using the 1/4" setting on my We R Memory Keepers Corner Chompers. I added the stitching with my Gellie Roll pen and I attached this piece to the top of the card.

I cut a piece of Melon Mambo card stock at 3 1/2 x 4 1/2 and a piece of patterned paper at 3 1/4 x 4 1/4. I rounded the corners of both pieces using the 1/4" setting on my Corner Chompers. I glued both of these pieces together, added decorations with my Gellie Roll pen, and attached the whole piece to the front of my card.

I punched the tag in Whisper white using the Large Decorative Label punch from Stampin' Up. I inked the edges with Melon Mambo and added the sentiment using Card Sayings by TPC in Rich Razzleberry ink by Stampin' Up. I added this to the bottom of the card. I popped up the heart using Stampin' Up Dimensionals.

I tied a bow using ribbon from my stash and added a flower using Prima flowers and a brad from Recollections. To finish off the card, I added stiched lines around the entire card and added Stickles to the tag.

This card is a little out of my comfort zone, but that's my goal. Stepping out of my comfort zone is the only way my cards will get better. Wish me luck.

Thanks for stopping by,

Dana ;-)
