Peachy Keen "Chalk It Up" Challenge #25

Well, hello again!  Yep!  I'm back with not one, BUT two posts in one day!  Can you believe it?  It's sure been a busy week with a holiday and a new stamp release at Peachy Keen Stamps, AND a new challenge at the Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge Blog as of today!  Today's challenge is a "Chalk It Up Challenge".  Creating a card using chalk is something that I haven't done for a long, long, time, but I have to admit that I really enjoyed changing things up a bit.

 PK-124 Thank you Dolls
I actually colored this image with chalk using a Dove Blender Pen.  I love the soft muted look that this technique gives the image.  And speaking of image, this sweet little doll is from the PK-124 Thank You Dolls stamp set that was just released last night.  If you like the paper, then you will LOVE the new Peachy Picks Kit that was just released as well.  The weathered and worn comfort of Americana style comes through in a fresh, updated way in the Super Fresh paper collection by Simple Stories.  Included in this month's kit is the following:
Peachy Picks Subscription
  • 9 - 8.5" x 11" sheets of heavyweight Bazzill cardstock
  • Simple Stories "Summer Fresh" 6x6 paper pad
  • 25 Mini clothespins 
  • Prima pink flower pack (6 total flowers)  
  • Studio Calico paper trims
  • Matching burlap ribbon, green/cream twill tape, and red and white checked wide ribbon (1 yd of each)
That's enough crafty goodness to create at LEAST 18 A2 size cards, and from my experience, there's usually some left over.  All of this for only $24.95!!!  WOW!!!  What at deal!!!  This IS a recurring subscription, so every month you can look forward to a new Peachy Picks Kit, and it always coordinates so beautifully with the newly released stamps.   I ♥♥♥ my Peachy Picks Kits, and I know you will love them, too!

Our Peachy Keen Designers have created some wonderful cards to inspire you for this challenge, so please head over to the challenge blog to check out their work and leave them some love.   It's always so exciting to see what you're creating with your Peachy Keen Stamps, and when you play our challenge, you'll have the chance to be considered for the "Top Three, and The Top Peach"!  Bring it on and let's see what ya got up your crafty sleeves!!  ;-)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Have a glorious day... Stay cool, and Happy Stamping!

Lorie I love your rag doll and that paper is some of my favorites right now. I bought several 6x6 pads because I love it. I have not tried that technique. I am not sure what a Dove blender pen is, but your card sure is adorable! Looking forward to getting these stamps in the mail. Love and hugs,
