Peachy Keen August Release- Day 1

Hey everyone, I hope you are excited for the August stamp release from Peachy Keen Stamps! Today I am showcasing the August release stamp set in addition to a couple add- on stamp sets. The raccoons needed a costume for Halloween, and to my luck the hair from the "Faceless Frank and Bride" stamp set fit perfectly!

Puppies, gourds, sloths, butterflies, raccoons, and even a little guy in a waffle costume! The sets all mix and match to create adorable projects.

Hey everyone, I hope you had a great weekend! Today I sharing a card for the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge! The challenge is to create a card for kids, so I decided to create a welcome back to school card. For my card I combined two things I love, elephants and art. The sweet elephant is painting the sentiment, and the smaller elephant admires while sitting on jumbo crayons. Cards for kids lend themselves to be more whimsical, and that is what makes them so much fun to create!

Peachy Keen Stamps- July Release

Hey everyone, today I am sharing two projects using the current Peachy Keen Stamps July Release. This release is filled with tons of adorable nautical stamps. There are so many sentiments that pair perfectly with the nautical imagery. 


For my first card, I created a simple beach scene using a few different stamps. I thought it would be fun to create a fish out of the mermaid tail, so I masked the eye and then stamped the fish body. I hand cut all the stamped elements and layered them on sand and glittery paper.

For my second card, I created a treasure hunting scene. The pirate turtle has successfully found the hidden treasure. I paired pattern paper with sand paper to create depth and texture. The "You're a Treasure" sentiment is a perfect pairing with this scene.

Peachy Keen is currently offering two deals, 15% off on products on the website and .99 cent shipping within the USA. You can also subscribe to the Stamp Club of The Month, and receive stamps monthly.
