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 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

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.  The adorable face was stamped with the PK-04 4"  Shading details were added in using Copic markers.  I used the PKSC-31 July 2014 Stamp of the month for the banner and sentiment.

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

Below, please find  the details about prizes and how you can win.  Your next stop on this fabulous hop will be at my dear friend Lisa Buttafuoco's Facebook Page.  I KNOW she's got something absolutely amazing to share with you!

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!
