Thankful for You ~ PKS Thankful Blog Hop

If you are looking for my Shop Pumpkin Spice project click --> HERE
 
Hi Peachy Fans! Welcome to my blog!
 
The Peachy Keen Stamps designers, past and present, are together for the Peachy Keen Stamps "Thankful Blog Hop." We are all excited to share our "Thankful" projects using our Peachy Keen Stamps.
 
If you came here from Michelle's blog: Scrappin' with My Bug, then you are in the right place. If you just happened to be visiting my blog today then you are going to want to start from the beginning at the Peachy Keen Stamps Blog.
 
This is a long hop but you will have until Sunday, November 11th to visit each stop. That's 4 days of hopping! Believe me you are not going to want to miss a thing. You are also going to want to comment at each stop along the way because we have some Peachy prizes for some lucky commentors. You are not going to know on which blog the prizes will be hidden so make sure to leave a comment on each one.
 
Now onto my project...
 
 
For my project I created a wreath shaped card. I first welded 2 circles together using my Gypsy for the card base. I also cut a circle layer for the top. The paper for that is from the October Peachy Picks Kit.
 
I stamped the leaves from PKSC-09 September 2012 with distress inks and cut them out. From there I inked them some more, crinkled them, and inked them again. I used several Ranger Distress Inks to include: Aged Mahogany, Spiced Marmalade, Peeled Paint, Crushed Olive, Brushed Corduroy, and Vintage Photo.
 
Once everything was inked just the way I liked it I sprayed all my leaves with Glimmer Mist in Iridescent Gold. 
 
After everything was dry I just layered all my leaves, found I needed to stamp some more, then continued layering.  I added a pretty bow made from crinkle ribbon and topped it with a button that came from the February Peachy Picks Kit. I inked the button with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
 
The sentiment from PKSC-10 October 2012. I hand cut the banner and inked it.
 
This next photo is a shot from the side.

 
In this photo you can see all the beautiful shine from the Glimmer Mist.

 
All of the stamps used were from the Peachy Keen Stamp Club.
 
Here is how the club works:
 
This is a monthly recurring subscription.
 
Each month, you will receive one 8.5" x 11" stamp kit containing tons of mix and match elements for many occasions! No repeat images, each month is unique and original.
 
Several Kit options (International subscriptions and ala cart) are available. Shipping is included.
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
Before you go I want to remind you that there is a Peachy Sale happening right now. Check this out!
 
 
This sale ends Monday evening. You must order $30 in Peachy products to receive the free stamps.
 
Now don't forget to leave a comment and then head on over to Kim's blog: Paper Punch Addiction
 
Thank you for all your wonderful comments.
 
Happy Hopping!

Awesome wreath card! The shiny ink adds that little bit of glamour that says, "you are special". I can see this as a larger wreath perhaps as a centerpiece. Tons of things can be done with your idea. Thanks.
