Batty Over You! ~ Peachy Keen LFIF Creepy Cute

Happy Halloween!

I wanted to play in Peachy Keen's Let's Face It Friday challenge. The theme for this challenge is Creepy Cute. Since today is Halloween I thought I should get to it before Halloween passes.

I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do and then I remembered this patterned paper that I had from K&Company. It is from thier SpookTacular line.

I cut the moon from Plantin Schoolbook and the bats from Simply Charmed.

I used the hide contour feature on my Gypsy and hid the faces on my bats. I then stamped them using PK-692 Monster Mash Face Assortment. I decided to heat emboss the faces in blask embossing powder and then used my white gel pen to color in the eyes. I also added a few doodles  and some faux stitching to my card.

The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps "Bewitched" set. I heat embossed it in black, also.

I used Martha Stewart's Drippy Goo punch and added so ribbon, a button, and some baker's twine from Trendy Twine and my card was finished!

I hope you all have a wonderful day and Be safe!

PK Connection Halloween Card Swap

Hi there! Today I wanted to share the wonderful cards I received in a Halloween Card Swap I participated in over at the Peachy Keen Connection. Lorie Souther, from The Thinkin' Spot, was our hostess and she did a fabulous job!

I was so excited when I opened my package and saw whose cards I had recieved. These ladies are so talented!

This first card is from the Peachy Queen, Kathy!!!

Kathy's card is an easel card. Her coloring is awesome and I love all the glitter.

You can see more of Kathy's creations on the Peachy Stamps Blog, A Note From Kathy. You will not be disappointed, after all, she is the Peachy Queen!! I Love your card, Kathy!


This card is from my friend Glora, at Glora's Crafts.

I've been visiting Glora's blog for quite some time. She is very talented and such a sweetheart! I love the scene she created with this card. The added bling is the perfect touch!


This card was created by Cheryl Korsmeyer.

Isn't this card the cutest thing! I had to take a picture from the side so that you could see Dracula is actually a broach. Such a fantastic idea. I couldn't find a blog for Cheryl but I believe she is a Stampin' Up! representative. You may be able to search for her there.


The next card was created by Dawn Gallard aka DawnGail.

I love this shaped card and all the added accents. The rosette is gorgeous!

This last card is made by Janice Wilson from Stamping With Janice.

Janice added the perfect touches to this card. I love the rafia! She is one of the Peachy Keen designers.


I hope you will visit these blogs. The ladies have so much talent to share.

Thank you, Ladies for sharing your talent. It was a pleasure playing with you all!

Happy Happy Days ~ Peachy Keen LFIF Challenge

Hello Again! Welcome to Luv Scrapping Together!

I haven't been able to play along in many challenges lately and was so excited to have a little time to put a super quick card together.

The Let's Face It Friday Challenge over at Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge Blog is to make something that whips up your imagination. For this challenge you must use Peachy Keen face stamps.

I saw this whimsical frame on the Live Simply Cricut Lite cartridge and just had to use it to create a shaped card.

As I said I used Live Simply Cricut Lite to create the base of my card. I welded 2 shadows of the frame together in my Gypsy then cut all the layers.

The sun is from Doodlecharms and the clouds are from Create A Critter.

I stamped the sun with my Peachy Keen Stamps. This face is from PK-450 Wide Eyed Kids Face Assortment. I used my white gel pen to add a few accents. Ranger Glossy Accents were added to the eyes for a nice shine and added dimension.

I ran the clouds through my Cuttlebug using the D'Vine Swirls embossing folder. The edges were inked with Martha Stewart pigment ink.

My patterned paper is from Echo Park's Happy Days line. Foam tape was used to pop up the sun and clouds.

My sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps "Sweet Somethings" set.

That's it! Thank you for visiting today!

Thankful For You! ~ SMS Terrific Tuesday Challenge

Hello and Welcome to Luv Scrapping Together!

It's time for another Terrific Tuesday Challenge at Scrappy Moms Stamps. The featured cartridge for this challenge is an oldie but a goodie, Doodlecharms! Now remember if you do not own this cartridge you can still play along. Just use a similar cut from another cartridge or svg. We want everyone to play along!

I used the basket and the apple cuts from Doodlecharms. I used Ranger Distress Ink in Tea Dye to distress my edges and used my white gel pen for some accents.

The card shape comes from Cricut Lite Lacy Labels. I welded 2 of the tag shape together using my Gypsy. The patterned paper is from Joann's open stock.

I hand cut the tag and stamped it from Scrappy Moms Stamps "A Holiday To Remember." then added a button with some jute.

Thank you for stopping by! Don't forget to head on over to Scrappy Moms Stamps to see what my fellow design team sisters have created. I know it's fabulous!!

Boo To You! ~ FCCB Challenge Me Monday

Hi Everyone! Sorry this is up late. I just flew in from San Antonio, Texas in the wee hours of the morning and just getting this posted. I had a wonderful time and will share a few pictures of my trip at a later time.

Today's Challenge Me Monday challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog is to have a ghost on your project. I love the little ghost from Paper Doll Dress Up so that is the one I used.

The background paper is from K&Company's SpookTacular line. I thought it worked perfectly. The frame shape came from Elegant Edges. I have been wanting the cartridge for quite some time and was finally able to find it.

My sentiment comes from Scrappy Moms Stamps "Bewitched" set. The cute little face I used is from Peachy Keen Stamps ~ PK-550 Pumpkin Faces.

I thought It would be really fun to put my ghost on an action wobble.

I hope you will check out all the other wonderful creations my design team sisters have for you over at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog.

With that said I just want to say thank you to Robin and Amy Jo. You see, this is my last post for FCCB. Robin gave me my first ever design team spot and it has been wonderful. FCCB was the first challenge I had ever participated in and it has led to many others. I LOVE the ladies on this design team and will miss being a part of this wonderful group. I wish every one of them the best!

Thank you Robin and Amy Jo AND thank you to all the many followers that have participated in the challenges. You are what makes FCCB one of the best challenge blogs!
