Peachy Keen Peek!

I have a peek to share from the Peachy Keen Stamps December Kit of the Month! I hope you’re as excited as I am for November 5th, when these new stamps will “officially” be available! Join us on Facebook for the release party!

Here’s my peek using the Peachy Keen Stamps Club Stamps. I painted the background with white acrylic paint and added a little  Polar White Flower Soft. I have a video with a tutorial on my painted clouds HERE.

House Ornament

Looking for a little gift ornament or tag that’s quick to make? I have something for you! This Sizzix die cut project is easy enough to make multiples in a jiffy.

I used up a bunch of paper scraps (Basic Grey Lemonade) for my project today. Get your scraps together and place all the dies from 658785 Sizzix House Thinlits onto the 656499 Sizzix Magnetic Platform (my favorite new tool! No more zillion Post-its to hold the dies in place.) and cut with Sizzix Big Shot.

Sponge all the edges of pieces with brown ink.


Cover a chipboard coaster with paper. Sponge edges with brown ink.

Add house to chipboard base. Add some Polar White Flower Soft for snow.
