::BIG NEWS::

Hello and WELCOME to The ThINKin' Spot!!

It's not been that long at all this time and boy, do I have some exciting news for YOU!

For all my Peachy Keen Stamp loving friends, you can no be very, VERY excited
because Kathy and Dave are back, and with them, they are bringing
an all new Stamp of the Month Club stamp set!!

That's right!  You heard correctly!  
Beginning very soon, you can sign up for an all new Stamp of the month
stamp set and rumor has it there may be add on sets for later in the month too!

For those of you who remember, these sets are HUGE full sheet stamp sets of the highest quality
photopolymer and they are filled with some of the most adorable images you will find anywhere!!

Here's a little sneak peek of the new set that'll be coming out.

I hope you love it!  Oh, who am I kidding?  How can you NOT love this little cutie?


Squeeee!!  Was I right, or was I right?

Adorbsies.  That's just all you can say.  My favorite is her "teef" as my grandson used to call them.
LOL!  Teeth and eyelashes.  Incredible detail on each and every stamp!

I colored this little cell phone cutie with my Copic markers and the paper is called Birthday Bouquet
from Stampin' Up!  There are some incredible patterns and floral patterns in that particular paper pack and they really don't look all that Birthday-ish to me.  A few are definitely birthday themed but not all.  I've found I go to this particular stack for a variety of cards and projects.  I'm not sure if it's still available from Stampin' Up!, but if not, and you're lucky enough to still have some of it to play with like I do, then... YAY YOU!!

For all the details about Peachy Keen Stamps Stamp of the Month Club comeback and for details about how to get yourself signed up and on that happy mail list, head on over to www.peachykeenstamps.com.  Get yourself signed up for email notifications, and be expecting an email from Kathy TODAY!!


Thanks so much for stopping by!  
Have a blessed day and Happy Stampin'!

It's Been A While

HELLO and welcome back to The ThINKin' Spot!

Well it's been more than just a little while since this little blog has seen a new post.
There's no particular reason for that, other than I guess I just needed a break.  My paper crafting supplies have lived a very quiet and secluded life in my basement and if I'm completely honest, I'll have to admit that I have missed paper crafting.  I never give up crafting all together, though.  I've been working on sewing projects, crocheting, and of course, I've spent some time painting.  I don't think there will ever be a time I'm not doing some sort of crafty thing.  I just enjoy it way too much to ever give it up completely.

Now what you might ask did it take to get me in to my basement digging for my Copic markers and all the supplies I needed to make just 1 little ol' card?  That answer would have to be seeing some of my favorite stamps being manufactured again.  Yes, those would be Peachy Keen Stamps of course!!

Kathy in all her creative brilliance has created this adorable On The Pond release and it is now available in very limited quantities in STAMP form.  Yes, you read that right!  These adorable images can be purchased for a limited time, and in limited quantities at a special price, so you'd better get 'em while you can.  Follow the link to the Peachy Keen Stamps Store and get yours on their way to you today!!  Here is what I chose to make with just a few of these adorable images.

 Now I did receive these images in digital form, but I far prefer actual stamps.  That's why I was SO excited when Kathy announced that she and Dave were going to be making these sweet images into actual...physical...STAMPS!  Woohoo!!  There's just nothing like holding that stamp in your hand and creating something wonderful.  Sorry, but digis just don't do it for me.  Never have and never will!


I colored these cuties with my neglected Copic markers.  Would you believe that after almost 3 years, I picked them up and with the exception of needing a few refills here and there, they worked like I'd never left 'em.  Now that's a product you have to admit stands the true test of time.  I LOVE Copic markers, and this is just one more reason why.  I could give you a list of the colors I used, but honestly, it would take another blog post.  I use a LOT of colors before an image is completed.  I start with my favorite combo of yellows and build from there.  The yellow ducklings included an assortment of yellow, gray, and brown shades.   




I can't thank you enough for stopping by today, and hopefully, I'll have another cute little somethin'-somethin' to share with you again really soon!  

Happy Stamping!!

PKS September Release and Reveal Blog Hop!



This is your last stop on the hop and we sure hope you have enjoyed it!
Our team outdid themselves this month!

You should have arrived here from Emily Kluender's Blog, but if you just happened upon this post, then by all means, go back to the beginning of this hop and start there, so you don't miss ANYTHING!!!!  Here's my card for the hop.  I hope you like it!

For this card I used the Smile Eagle stamp set along with the Birch Background frame.  They go so well together and even the birch background was fun to color.  I colored the birch bark with Copic markers numbers W1, W3, W5, and W7.  This little eagle was colored with the same for the body and for the head I used C1, C3, Y21, and YR61, with assorted brown colors for the eyes.  The patterned paper is all scraps from a Simple Stories 6x6 paper pad, and the card stock base is Stampin' Up! Not Quite Navy.  For embellishments, I used some enamel dots and natural fiber ribbon.  I had lots of fun with this one and I sure hope you like it!  Now it's time to see ALL of these new stamps!  ENJOY!!



The excitement has been building for the past two days and now the time has FINALLY arrived!
WELCOME to the September Release and Reveal Blog Hop at Peachy Keen Stamps!
This All Occasion release brings wonderful images for projects centered around a birthday theme, as well as some great stamps that pair up perfectly with stamps that have been released previously this year. I can see the Birch Background stamp used with our camping themed release, a rustic Christmas project, Halloween, masculine "guy" cards and so, so much more! Smile Eagle goes amazingly well with the Birch Background, too, and can't us just see that little fella used for some AWESOME patriotic projects? There's the Haunted A2 Background, which comes just in time to make some quick and easy Halloween projects, OR pair it up with last month's release or ANY of our Halloween themed stamps for more versatility. The PKSC-33 Stamp of the Month, Ballerina Bear, and the Sentiments for the September 2014 Release are fabulous "go to" sets for any age! And last but certainly not least are the Variety Face Assortments. It wouldn't be a PKS release without faces, and these are some of the cutest and most versatile yet! Turn a simple project into something SUPER SPECTACULAR just by adding an adorable Peachy Keen Face! These are must haves, for sure!!

Peachy Keen Stamps August Release :: Sneak Peeks




 Hello and welcome to the second night of sneak peeks of the Peachy Keen Stamps August Release!  

We're having a SPOOKTACULAR time creating and sharing with these new stamps that are due to be released tomorrow evening!

Join us at 6 p.m. tomorrow on The Peachy Keen Stamps Blog for our celebratory blog hop, where you'll find the entire new release and some out of this world samples from our Design Team.

Here's my card for you tonight.

ENJOY!


I used the PK-1422 Poseable Skeleton to create this card.  I colored with Copic markers E41, E42, E43, and E44.  Then covered my finished colored piece with glue pen and glitter.  It's a little hard to see the glitter, but trust me... it's there!  ;-)



 The paper is from my scrap tub, and a little strategically placed ribbon finished off this card.  Pretty easy peasy and a whole lot of fun!!

Be sure to stop by the PKS Blog to see what the rest of my DT sisters have created, and don't forget to leave your comments here, AND on the rest of the blogs for a chance to win all the stamp sets we're showcasing tonight!!!


Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPIN'!!!!!

Peachy Keen Stamps & KaDoodle Bug Designs Celebrate Christmas Hop


Welcome to Day #5 of the KaDoodle Bug Designs and Peachy Keen Stamps Christmas in July Facebook Hop! It's been looking a lot like Christmas around here despite the warm summer weather. We have some amazing projects to share with you all week long from both of our very talented design teams, as well as some great prizes to be won!  You should have arrived here from the very talented Tamara's Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/Tammscreas if you're hopping along in the right order.  If you just happened upon this post then you'll want to go back to the KaDoodle Bug Designs and pick this up from the beginning so you don't miss one single amazing creation or a chance to win a fabulous prize!

For my project today I'm using the Baking Gingers SVG File from KaDoodle Bug Designs http://kadoodlebugdesigns.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=19&products_id=203

I enlarged the Ginger Head file for a 5x5 card (a little bigger with the bow) and cut it with creamy caramel card stock.  I cut this file with my Silhouette Cameo and used the weld feature to make the head shape into an actual folded card.  I wanted to give the paper a look of actually being painted, so I did a lot of sponging with creamy caramel, soft suede, close to cocoa and very vanilla ink from Stampin' Up!  Cheeks were added using chalk and white highlights were added using a white Gelly Roll Pen from Peachy Keen Stamps.  http://www.peachykeenstamps.com/shop/pens/markers/white-gelly-roll-pen-medium-point/  The adorable face was stamped with the PK-04 4"  http://www.peachykeenstamps.com/shop/4-faces/pkk-04-4-8243-open-eyes-with-simple-smile/  Shading details were added in using Copic markers.  I used the PKSC-31 July 2014 Stamp of the month for the banner and sentiment.  http://www.peachykeenstamps.com/shop/july-2014-release/pksc-31-july-2014/

My sweet little shaped ginger card was finished off with crystal glitter from Martha Stewart and a bow with button for embellishment.

Peachy Keen Stamps July Release Blog Hop

Welcome Friends to the Peachy Keen Stamps Christmas in July
Release and Reveal Blog Hop!
The past two days have brought some positively adorable creations for Christmas using these new stamps, and tonight, we are thrilled to be able to share this new release with you in its entirety! The past two days have been filled with adorable snow people, elves, Christmas ornaments and greens, as well as sweet new peachy faces!
The time we've been waiting for has finally arrived! It's time for us to share our July 2014 Release with you! These stamps are now available at Peachy Keen Stamps and we know these adorable designs are going to have you excited to start creating all of your holiday projects.


We've got a little blog hop going on in celebration of these new stamps, and you've arrived at your last stop on this hop.  If you're hopping along in the right order, you should have arrived here from the super talented Saundra Rega's Blog.  If not, you can see the list below, and go back to the beginning so you don't miss any of the cuteness or excitement!   We're going to give one lucky person who hops along and leaves a comment a $50 Peachy Keen Gift Certificate to do some shopping in the PKS Store!  Here's my project for tonight's festivities.

For this card I used the sweet little PK-1405 Singing Elves stamp set and the banner and Merry Christmas sentiment from PKSC-31 July 2014 Stamp of the Month set.  The images were colored with Copic markers, and I added a little bit of glitter to their collars and hats for some sparkle,because I just can't seem to create anything without some kind of bling.  That's just how I roll.  

The paper was gifted to me so I'm not exactly sure of what company it is, and the ribbon/seam binding is from Stampin' Up!.  


Here's a look at ALL of the stamps in this Christmas in July Release and prize details can be found below.

Peachy Keen Stamps Christmas In July

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
No, no, no... NOT outside, but at Peachy Keen Stamps it's looking a whole lot like Christmas!!
Welcome to our annual Christmas in July Release!
Here we are celebrating Christmas in the midst of Summer and 4th of July celebrations! This is a much anticipated event for us, and tonight we kick off our sneak peeks by showcasing five adorable stamps sets that will have you excited and ready to get started on your 2014 holiday projects. You DO know there are only 174 days left until Christmas don't you? Take a break from the Summer heat and grab something cool to drink and join us as we share projects made with PKSC-31 July 2014, PK-1410 Christmas In July Faces (Assortment and 1 1/8" sizes), PK-1412 Snow Hugs Snowman, and PK-1413 SMILE Snowman.

Here's my card for tonight's round of sneak peeks.
I colored this cutie with Copic markers using X-Press It Blending Card.  I cut the snow drifts out of white card stock and coated the surface with Versamark, then Heat and Stick powder from Stampin' Up.  After melting the Heat and Stick powder with my heat gun, I added the chunky glitter from Marth Stewart and heat set again.  This works so well and the glitter will not come off at all!  I LOVE that technique!  The finishing touch was the knit ribbon and icy looking beads that were in my stash and both are from Stampin' Up!. 


Be sure to stop by the Peachy Keen Stamps Blog where you'll find even more Christmas creations from our talented team members, and be sure to leave your comments for a chance to win ALL 5 stamps sets you see showcased tonight. One lucky winner will be chosen from all the comments on all of the blogs and that winner will be announced in the following day's post. The more you comment the better your chances of winning! Good luck!!
Tomorrow night we have five more stamp sets to give you a peek at, and then on Saturday, July 5th we'll be back with our Release and Reveal Blog Hop along with a chance to win a $50 PKS Gift Certificate!

Thanks for stopping by!  Well see you tomorrow night for more fun Christmas in July projects!
