Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge 23

Everyone did such a fabulous job on the last challenge, there were so many different interpretations of the challenge, which is what makes it so much fun!! Our lucky winner for the last challenge is 23. Julie T! She made a sweet-as-pie recipe card with Peachy Keen's Sugar and Spice Ginger set! Congratulations, Julie; please email me your with your details as well as which of the veggie sets you'd like, and we'll get that shipped off to you!

Our next challenge will be one that's judged. Entries will be judged based on:
  • Original creativity
  • Interpretation
  • Quality of work
Now here it is! It's going to be another recipe, and wait until you scroll down and see what our designers have come up with this week!
  • Must contain green and yellow anywhere on the project
  • Must have a 3-dimensional element on the project (could be an image popped out, embellishment, ribbon, etc.)
  • Must contain a stamped image
Please link your entry to Mr. Linky before March 8, 2010 to be entered. Only one project per person, please. If there are multiple entries, we will use your first one as your entry. :) Thanks for understanding! The prize for Challenge #23 is listed below the designers' images.

Here our design team has outdone themselves again with their own spin on our new Faceless Veggie Sets! Amazing job, ladies!!!

Viv has designed a simply adorable "Just Pea-cause" card perfect for any occasion using PK-270!

Lorie makes us smile with these little peas in a pod from PK-270!

Who could resist Janice's "Pick of the Crop" card with a home-baked loaf of zucchini bread? Janice used PK-272 and PK-270.

Jacqui has created a gorgeous way to keep track of all your planting this spring and summer! She has shown us how versatile these stamps can be! Jacqui used PK-270 and PK-271.

What a fun little trio these chili peppers are! Nikki made this too-cute card using PK-270.

Emma has whipped up this cheery apron card using PK-270! Who's getting hungry?

Last but certainly not least, Sonia is keeping things "Hot, Hot, Hot" with her take on the chili peppers using PK-270!


The prize for this challenge will be $25 gift code to Peachy Keen Stamps! Don't forget, the entries will be judged for this challenge - no random winner will be drawn. Good luck everyone, and have fun!

Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge 22 and an announcement!

Hi everyone! We were just blown away by all the amazing entries from our last challenge! It really made the judging very difficult and we had a lot of favorites, but our winner is........(Drumroll Please)......#14 - Heidi Anne! The journaling was so simple, yet heartwarming, along with her photo, which you can't help smiling at. What a doll, for sure! Heidi, we will be emailing your gift certificate today! Thank you to all who played along. We would like to continue to judge the entries for every other challenge. That means this challenge will be a random winner, but Challenge #23 will be judged, and so on. This makes it more fun for those who like to show off what they've got, but also allows people just starting out to play too without feeling intimidated!

Now, onto our next challenge! We decided to take it easy on everyone this week and create a sketch. These are so much fun for me to create, especially when I get to see everyone's interpretations on DT cards and of course, entries from all of you!

Here is the sketch for Challenge #22:

To participate in this challenge, please complete your entry and link the entry to Mr. Linky by February 21st. Please see the column to the right of the posts for complete set of rules. :)

We also have a VERY exciting announcement to make! Sonia Kertznus will be joining us again as a DT member, and we are so thrilled to have her back. Please check out her blog for tons of amazing cards and inspiration!

And now, some eye candy from our fantastic design team (including Sonia's!):

Viv did a wonderful job pairing this gorgeous color palette with PK-402.

Lorie got out her acrylic paints and really made those flowers pop from PK-229!

Just look at the coloring and embellishments! Janice made this too-cute card using PK-210.

Jacqui totally got me in the mood for Easter with her sweet take on this bunny from PK-257.

Nikki created this perfect combination of kraft and color with this fun loving elephant found in PK-222.

Emma created such a fun card that just makes you smile using PK-08!

Sonia is back - right along with her eye for great color combos and used PK-952.


The prize for this challenge will be one of the new faceless veggie and fruit stamp sets that were just released this week! Take a look here, and start thinking about which one you'll choose if you're the lucky winner! The possibilities are endless with these!

Thanks for playing along this week! We love looking at every single entry and can't tell you how excited we are to see the entries each challenge. Have fun!!

Hugs, Angelica
