Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Sketch Challenge

Hello everyone!  Can you believe this week is Christmas?!?!  Where has the time gone?  Well, I'm here today with another challenge entry.  Today it's the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Sketch Challenge #67 : Designer's Choice.  The guidelines for this challenge:  It's "Designer's Choice".  Create a card or layout with your Peachy Keen Stamps.  Yes, once in awhile we ask that you use your Peachy Keen Stamps to play and today is one of those days!  Create ANYTHING you'd like, but you MUST use your Peachy Keen Stamps!  Project must be new, created for this challenge.

Here is my entry:

The card base and the black cardstock are from Recollections.  The red and green pieces are from the Coredinations ~ Vintage Collection.  The super cute power couple (lol) are from the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Faceless Christmas Heads stamp set.  And their faces are from the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Winter Wonderland Face Assortment.  Instead of using  my colored pencils like usual, I tried out my Copic Markers to color in the cute couple.  I didn't do any fancy shading or anything, still have to practice that a bit.  I used a Black (100) ~ Copic Marker for the hats; a Cadmium Orange (YR07) ~ Copic Marker for their noses; and a Rose Red (R85) ~ Copic Marker for their tongues.  I added a little chalk for some cheeks.  And on the snowlady's hat I used Green ~ Stickles.  And on the snowman's hat I used Xmas Red ~ Stickles.  On top of the black piece of cardstock, I added a pretty piece of Paper Pizazz ~ Hearts & Dots Vellum.  The sentiment at the top of the card is from the My Creative Time ~ Mixed Holiday Sentiments.  And the sentiment on the bottom of the card is from the My Creative Time ~ Gift Card Sentiments.  The red and green pieces were cut with the My Creative Time ~ XL Label Die.

Now...wanna hear a funny story? My mother is a professional photographer. So growing up we always had fun family photo Christmas cards. Then when I got into crafting, I started making my own fun family photo Christmas cards. Basically, what I'm getting at is that Christmas cards are a HUGE tradition in my family. Well, this year...I was so excited about all of my projects for the My Creative Time ~ 12 Days of Christmas...that I totally forgot about my Christmas cards!!!!! I never even came up with a design or a photo or anything!!! In fact, I didn't even remember until we got our first Christmas card in the mail last week. Holy about panic LOL. Well, thank goodness for great products right?  This card was so easy to make using my favorite PKS & MCT products, that I decided to whip out 59 more of them!!!  Phew, got them in the mail just in time!  Hopefully everyone will get them before Christmas. 

Here is another card that is exactly the same, just using a different pattern vellum called Paper Pizazz ~ Swirls Vellum:

For some extra fun little laughs...I thought I would show you our picture inside.  Most of the time we try to do a nice pretty/serious picture, but this time we went for a bit of fun humor:

If you knew my husband...this would totally make you laugh!   ;)

Well my crafty friends, I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!  I will see you all back here again soon!

OMG I am laughing at that pic because that would be my hubby! Don't feel bad I never even sent mine out. I always end out doing happy new year cards because I am never on time. I am still trying to grasp that you made so many of them.
Thank you for playing along with our last challenge as designers for Peachy keen Stamps. Wishing you a very happy and healthy 2012.
