Peachy Keen Stamps April Release Blog Hop

The time has finally arrived!  Yep!  It's time for the newest released stamps from Peachy Keen Stamps to be revealed!  Welcome to our blog hop!!   You should have arrived here from  the wonderfully creative Kim Score's Paper Punch Addiction Blog, but if you just happened along, you're definitely going to want to go back to the beginning and start at the Peachy Keen Stamps Blog so that you don't miss one amazing creation!

I am so excited for you to see ALL of the new stamps, and especially the set I'm showcasing.   This is the first in the series of Hillbilly Holler Stamps. These stamps were illustrated by Steve Yarbrough, a local Missouri artist and  relative.  These images are fun, funny, and oh, my!  Don't get me started on how much fun they are to color!!  For my first project, I took the Hillbilly Get Well image and made a cover for a Kleenex box. 
As good as a card is when you're sick, I couldn't help but think why not go one better and make the get well wish something that can actually be used and enjoyed.  So, I found the pattern for this Kleenex box cover on Splitcoaststampers.  This sleeve fits right over a Kleenex box, and can be reused.  What a way to bring a smile to someone's face, who might not be feeling well.

  I ran the individual panels through the Big Shot using the Tim Holtz weathered wood embossing folder.  I used the direct to paper technique and inked the raised embossing to give the panels depth and dimension.  Is this image hilarious, or what?  No self respecting hillbilly would be seen in the hospital without his pink bunny slippers, and an infusion from that little brown jug sure ought to cure whatever ails ya!!  ;-)
My second project is a little sign for the bathroom door.  This little outhouse image is so darned cute!!  If you're familiar with hillbilly lingo, you know that the outhouse is often referred to as "The Privy", so that's what I decided to put on my sign. 
Here's a closer picture so that you can see the hardware a little better.  The keyhole comes from Tim Holtz, and the rest of the hardware is from Stampin' Up!
And now on to my third project.  When I saw this cute little guy in his nightshirt with candle in hand, I immediately thought it would be cute to make a tag using this image and secure it around a candle.  No worries, though, because this candle is battery operated.  You Light Up My Life is the perfect sentiment for this image.  There's more weathered wood embossing on this tag, and more of that Stampin' Up! hardware, as well as the ribbon. 
Here's what I actually did with my candle.  It sits in the kitchen on the butcher block, and looks so sweet at night when it's all lit up.  I put it in a wooden box, and added a spray of berries and stars for filler.  It's so stinkin' cute!!!
And finally, I have a card to share with you that I made with this cute bass playing hillbilly.  This guy actually reminds me of Hank Williams Jr.  Ole Bocephus himself dropping by to wish you a Happy Birfday!   I've even seen a wash tub bass being played at one of the shows in Branson years ago.  Now THAT'S some hillbilly country fun!!!!
All images were colored with Copic markers, and I've hit the Tim Holtz distress inks pretty hard for all of these projects.  My two favorite colors for these creations were tea dye and walnut stain.   I hope you like what you've seen, and have been inspired to create something wonderful with these new stamps.  Cards are just the beginning of what you can do with these wonderful stamps and images!!
