Peachy Keen October Release Challenges

Hello everyone! On Friday Peachy Keen Stamps had their release party unfortunately I missed most of the party! Oh my the CUTENESS that I saw last week was just incredible!!!! So I thought I would play along on both of the challenges!

Peachy Party October Challenge #1

For the first challenge Miss Amy is the host! She called it a 3-2-1 challenge! You must use 3 buttons, 2 pattern papers and 1 bow! So I pulled out "Fall Blessings Acorns" stamp set and my "PKS Pumpkin House" die. I just wanted to use the pumpkin! So I stamped the leaves and the placed my pumpkin on top of them! I think this is the first time I am using either one of these even though I have had them since last year! Well I must say I LOVE them both! I just stamped my sentiment ~ from the "Fall Blessings Acorns" ~ which is perfect for the theme of my card! Colored my leaves with some Copics and added my ribbon!

Sorry for the pictures but we didn't have any sun for the past 2 days here! So my attempt to take pictures indoors really doesn't show off the paper or inks!

Peachy Party October Challenge #2
For my second card the challenge is by Miss Raven! She asked us to use any PKS background! Love this challenge too because I got to use my "PKS Cloudy Day" stamp! I decided to use my SU Basic Gray ink  to attempt to make it look a little spooky! Not sure that you can see it since I used my Nesties to make my card! Or the fact my lighting wasn't the best! Anyway since I am a die girl ~ the "PKS Fuzzy Spider" die ~ which I LOVE this little guy ~ had to be used! I just added a little detail with the Sakura pen and colored the little boots with some Copics! My sentiment is from My Creative Time "Treats For My Sweet".

Okay that is it for today I also would like to remind every that it is "Scrapping The Little Things" over at Emma's blog at My Creative Time! The ladies did an AMAZING job like always!!!


  1. These are both wonderful...I agree with you...uber hard to take indoor pics that turn out well...I always take mine outside too. Lee-Ann :)

  2. Oh Kim, so so cute, I love them both, BUT that PSK Fuzzy Spider is toooo CUTE.. but your pumpkin is pretty adorable too. It is always so fun to use things we have but have never used... .. Hope you had a wonderful week end.. Hugs
