Good morning! It's Tuesday, and time for another fun and fantastic Peachy Keen Challenge. This week, our challenge is a recipe. For our cards/projects we are to use the colors orange and white, have stitching somewhere on the card, use one upcycled item, and of course any Peachy Keen Stamp. I chose to use this sweet, sweet Raggedy Angel stamp (PK-251). Isn't she adorable? This little angel was colored with Copic markers. I cut the oval, leaving out a portion of one wing, her halo, and the teddy's ear. I distressed the edges of both the image, and the layer, and added some sponging around both. I used Sweet Always (retired) designer paper from Stampin' Up! for the background paper. The stitching for my card was done with gold cord around the wings and halo. For my upcycled item, I used these fun little paper beads that I've been making. They are made from scraps of paper, rolled tightly around a toothpick. I use a drop of glue on to secure them and then seal them with a coat of matte sealer to help make them a bit more durable. It's a wonderful way to use up little scraps of designer paper, and they really make some cool jewelery pieces, as well as being fun additions to cards. Each upcycled paper bead is flanked by two pearl beads. Speaking of "upcycled", or green items, did you know that Peachy Keen Stamps are made with photopolymer, a substance that emits practically zero V.O.C.’s during production and since the excess polymer goes through a recycling process to make new Peachy Keen Stamps, it is much more environmentally friendly than traditional rubber? Cool, huh!? I think that's VERY cool, so you can stamp happy, knowing that you are using an enviornmentally friendly product! AWESOME!!!
Oh my gosh! When I saw this stamp set, I was pickin' my jaw up off the floor! Isn't it the cutest? What a sweet, and adorable face on this happy little blue bird!! You just gotta get your name in the hat for this one, so bring it on, and lets see those challenge cards!!!
Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit today. As always, it's a joy to have you, and I wish you a blessed day filled with happy stamping!
