Peachy Goodness......{New Release Challenge Entries}

Hi everyone!!!
Well Peachy Keen Stamps had done it again and released more super adorable sets for June! I am SO excited because I just signed up for their stamp club and can not wait to get these in the mail!!! Of course these are only a few of my HUGE list of wants from the store...LOL so I am entering their challenges in the hopes of being one of the lucky winners of a GC...fingers crossed!

Over on the Peachy Keen Connection, there are 2 challenges going on right now. You can enter one or both and of course I had to enter them both...they are GREAT challenges and again...I want to win!!! ~maybe will play in my favor :)
Anyways here are the challenges and my entries....Hope you like them!!!!

 Challenge #1 Hosted by Amy...
Is a 1-2-3 Challenge. Make any project of your choice using 1 stamped image, 2 patterned papers, and 3 embellishments. Fun, fun, FUN!!!

And here is my card.... 

I started out with a Kraft Card stock base and used the freebie set that PK sent out during the Memorial Day weekend sale. I stamped and paper pieced it using Designer Paper from Authentique~Glory and for the stars, I ended up using my clear star gel pen and coloring them in..... it really makes them look awesome all shimmery and shiny. I finished off by coloring the stripes using my copic markers. I of course used my sewing machine as one of my embellishments and added some hemp twine from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique and a button that I found in my stash. Finally for the sentiment I used MCT~ Vintage StitchedLabel Die. 
So again here are the items I used for the challenge.....
1~ Stamped image and sentiment
2~pattern papers from Authentique
3~ embellishments include button, hemp twine and sewing machine stitching

 Challenge #2 Hosted by Gigi......
Create any project you choose, and include the sun on it.

And here is my card......

I again started out with a Kraft Card stock base and used a file from the Lori Whitlock that I picked up in the Silhouette Store~ Beach Palm Tree and Sun. She also has the perfect paper for this cut as well~ A Perfect Summer (see what I mean...perfect) so all the designer papers are from that pad. I cut my pieces, inked all the edged using Distress inks and stamped my sentiment on my island using the PK~115 Let's Ketchup stamp set and the cutie face on the sun from the PK~173 Great Vibes Robots stamp set. Once I had my idea for the layout, I ran my mat through my sewing machine in a random pattern and attached it to my card front.  All the pieces were then glued down for the exception of the face which I popped up. I thought something was missing from my "scene" so I used the cute cooler, also from the Let's Ketchup set and the matching SVG file for this set. I inked the pieces, paper pieces a bit and then popped that up on the island.

So there you have it....both of my entries for their challenges....I hope you have enjoyed my cards and thanks so much for stopping by!!
Have a GREAT Friday everyone!!!
