Peachy Keen September Release Blog Hop

 Hello, happy Friday, and welcome to the Peachy Keen Stamps September Release Blog Hop!!  Have you seen some amazing things on this hop, or what?  I just LOVE this release, and have had so much crafty fun working with these new stamps, and by now, I'm sure you're loving them, too!!!  If you have hopped here from my dear and talented friend Janice's blog, then you are on the right track, but if you just happened along, then PLEASE go back to the beginning at the Peachy Keen Stamps Blog and start from there, so you don't miss a thing. 

When I saw the PK-647 Fall Fun Faceless stamp set I was assigned with the pumpkins and fence, The Five Little Pumpkins rhyme, which my kids loved when they were little immediately popped into my head, and I knew I wanted to make a little book for my grandson.  At nine months old, he loves to be read to, and I get a kick out of him studying and looking at all the pictures in his books.  This was so totally a labor of love, and labor it was!!  I was elbow deep in little pumpkin cut outs and fence, and I began to wonder it I'd ever get them all cut and colored!!  Persistence does pay off, though, and when I got down to the point of putting everything together, I was in hog heaven!!!  I've got a lot of pictures here to show you, so I guess I'd better get to it!!
 This is the front cover complete with title.  The book itself is an acrylic album that I covered with this wonderful K&Co. paper.  Did you know that you can find an assortment of acrylic and chip board albums in the Peachy Keen Stamps store?

 For page 1, I added a ribbon embellishment on the center pumpkin and at the top of the page, and I used some dimensional stars throughout.  All images are stamped on Express It Blending Card, and colored with Copic markers.  The grass throughout was done with a Martha Stewart grass punch.

The leaf ribbon was gifted to me by a friend, and worked just perfect for this.  It's times like these that I'm happy I'm a hoarder of such pretty things!  ;-)  Each page throughout the book is sponged with Tim Holtz Antique Walnut Distress Ink. 
The little witch on this page is the PK-604 Bewitched stamp.


The fence here, and on each page was stamped with the fence stamp from this set, then hand cut... yes, each little piece!!  Took me forever, but was so worth the effort!!

 On this page, and some to follow, I added some orange velvet rick-rack.
All of the faces througout the book are stamped with the newly released PK-485 In Stitches assortment face stamps.   I LOVE this polka dotted paper!!
 Everything on this page was done in black card stock, and the eyes were heat embossed with Versamark, and white embossing powder.  Once it was dry and cool, I colored the pupils of the eyes in with a black Copic marker.  The edges of the page, and the pumpkin silhouettes were sponged with a sponge dauber and white craft ink from Stampin' Up!.  I also sponged the fence and edges of the grass to make them pop.
 And finally, they're all rolling away.  I did use my Copics to darken up the fence just a little bit.
 This is the finished book, once inside the page protectors and with the ribbon and fiber trim.  I decided that it might be a good idea to protect the pages from tiny little fingers, and since this album was 6x6, the pages fit perfectly in 6x6 page protectors.  I just trimmed off the edges of the pages, where they would normally have fit into a post bound album.    As I mentioned earlier, this one was a labor of love, and I hope you like it!!  I think baby Max will.  Here's a look at that little rascal enjoying one of his favorite farm books.

I had to have just a wee bit more fun with this wonderful new stamp set, so I colored up this image and decided to put it onto a Fall card.  Let me tell ya, that this one was finished in a flash compared to the last project!
For this card, I used some Papery Trey patterned paper that I had stashed away.  I cut the image with my rectangle Nestabilities, and colored with Copics of course.  I finished this card with some vintage brads, grosgrain ribbon, and the sentiment, which was stamped then punched with Stampin' Up! punches.  

So ya wanna know how to win free stamps along this hop?  It's very simple.  Just follow along with the hop, and leave a comment on each blog along the way.  Angelica will draw a random winner for each new stamp set from ALL the comments on each blog along the way!  Would you like some more great news?  ALL of the stamps being showcased today are available for sale now at the Peachy Keen Stamps Store, AND there's great savings offered for your orders.  Beginning today, in celebration of the anniversary of PKS, you will receive the following discounts when placing your order.

Whew!!  What a long post, but we've made it to the end, and now it's time to hop along to my dear, sweet, and talented friend Viv's Blog.  Please tell her I said HI when you get there, and I know you're going to REALLY enjoy what she's got to share with you.  Have a wonderful day, a blessed weekend, and I wish you lots of happy stamping!!!  Here's a look at the entire stamp set that I've worked with today.
