Hello everyone and welcome to the huge combined PKS Halloween/Fall Blog hop. If you have come here from the talented Sandra's blog then you are right on track. If not, you can start from the beginning HERE. Trust me, this is a Huge hop and you don't want to miss a thing. Another reason you don't want to miss anybody on the hop is the prizes!! There will be a total of $150 in prizes given out along the way. There will be one $50 Gift Certificate and four (4) $25 Gift Certificates to the Peachy Keen store. But you have to leave a comment on every stop along the hop in order to be eligible. 5 of the current and past designers will be chosen to give the prizes away. We don't even know who it is yet, so that is why it is important to visit everybody! If you get lost along the way, scroll to the bottom and I will include the blog hop list.
Now onto my projects! This one started out as a cute reversible door hanging for Halloween and Fall using the September Stamp of the Month kit. I have been a member since the beginning, (actually I think I missed the first one or two) and I LOVE it! I love being surprised on what Peachy cuteness Kathy has come up with now!! For complete details on how this works you can click HERE if you are interested in the SOTM kit. But in summary you get automatically billed once a month and an adorable stamp set shows up at your door. They can also be purchased separately but at a higher price then kit members get them. And the stamp sets are HHHUUGGGEEE with endless possibilities.
Like I said, mine started off as a door hanging but then I ran to my favorite store Target and as always went thru the Dollar Spot and saw these foam wreathes. A light bulb went off in my head and since my mind is always working and never concentrating I switched projects halfway thru. Each SOTM kit comes with a free set of SVG files that match the stamp set so you don't have to cut around the stamp. OMG what a blessing for sure!!! A little heads up, if you are using Make the Cut the DPI needs to be set at 72! I basically broke the images apart and made sheets of each leaf that I wanted by duplicating and filling the page. Easy Peesy! Then I picked a few colors I wanted to use and stamped away while I was on the phone. It went a lot quicker than I thought. I inked up each leaf with a coordinating TH Distress Ink and simply glued them on with a hot glue gun pretty randomly and then filled in the blanks. And WAALLAA a nice little door wreath for a $1 thanks to Peachy Keen stamps! Perfect for gifts to let friends and family members know how much you appreciate them this Fall season!!!
Next I used PK-637 Lisa Jean Halloween to whip up this cute card. I stamped the image directly onto the DP then layered it with paper piecing and coloring of my Prisma Color pencils. I added some fibers under her hat for her hair and some liquid applique to the "pot" for some bubble affects. As I was coloring I found this tag on my ever so neat and clean craft table (NOT!!) and decided to stamp on that and add it to the card.
I don't want to keep you hoppers any longer! You have lots to see. Now hop on over to Leanne's blog to see what amazing and adorable creation she has cooked up! Winners will be announce Saturday at 6a.m. CST on the PKS blog. Good luck ladies and happy hopping!!
