Peachy Keen August Release Party Challenges

Peachy Keen Stamps just had their big August Release! Oh my Miss Kathy has really out done herself this time ! They are just AMAZING!!! I love them all and the design team has showcased them beautifully! If you haven't seen them ~ you must stop on over! So they had a release party on Sunday but I wasn't able to attend! But that is okay because they have 2 challenges going on!!! Head on over to the Peachy Connection for all the details. I will be listing all my materials under each picture since I am combining both challenges!.

CHALLENGE #1  is from Saundra, one of the design team members. She would like us to create a "special fold" card and we must use at least 3 pattern papers on it! Well I have to admit ~ I admired so many of you out there who can do this! I seem to struggle with using pattern paper. let alone 3! But I really want to Thank her for challenging me to give this a try! I actually really enjoyed doing this challenge! Thank You Saundra! I actually like how my card turned out! I need to do this more often!

So for my first card I thought I would get a jump on my Christmas cards. I do admit most of the time we send out photo cards of our son but there are a few I like to send something extra too! I decided to leave my sentiment on the inside! Unfortunately I can't show this because it something new from My Creative Time that will be happening next week! Come back to see!


Materials Used:
Peachy Keen Stamps ~ "Snow Much Love" ~ cute snowman
Paper ~ Paper Trey Ink & Fancy Pants "Winterland"
Spellbinders
Copic Markers



CHALLENGE #2 is coming from no other that the Peachy Queen herself ~ Miss Kathy! Her card had this ADORABLE little girl jumping rope ~ oh that image is just darling!!! So for this challenge Kathy has provided a sketch to follow! Easy right! I wanted to keep this card simple and a little bright! So I decided to use some colors and patterns I normally would not use together! Trying to step out of my comfort zone ~ again still thinking of Saundra's challenge!


Materials Used:
Peachy Keen Stamps ~ "Happy Lil' Frog" ~ my favorite frog EVER
Peachy Keen Stamps ~ "Cloudy Day" ~ cloud background
