Peachy Keen Goodness.......{Challenge Cards}

Happy Tuesday Everyone!!!
I have 2 cards to share that I made for the Peachy Keen Stamps new release challenge going on over at 

Up first is  Challenge #1~ Lorie's Challenge: 
Color Challenge: 
Make the Christmas creation of your choice, but DON'T use red or green. Think outside the box and use non-traditional colors for this challenge.

For my card I started out with  a 4x4 square card. That adorable penguin came from the Silhouette store and of course had to add my cute PK face to him. I further embellished him using my copic markers, some white gel pen doodles and chalk for his cheeks.
To add some more details to my card, I used the snowflake border punch, my sewing machine, 3GJ crinkle ribbon and some yummy Trendy Twine. Then for my sentiment I used My Creative Time~From Our Family to Yours stamp set. I couldn't help but add some bling in the form of a pretty pink button I had in my stash :)

Supplies used:
Paper~ white, black, orange {stash}, Echo Park~Winter Park
Stamps~ Peachy Keen Stamps~Winter Wonderland Faces, My Creative Time~From Our Family to Yours
Dies/Cuts~  Penguin~Silhouette Store, Snowflake punch
Extras~  Trendy Twine~Strawberry Cupcake, 3GJ~White Crinkle Ribbon, Bling button, Sewing Machine
Copic, white gel pen, chalk, pop dots

Next up is Challenge #2~ Cindy's Challenge: 
Create the project of your choice with a vacation theme.  Have fun with this and let your imagination soar! 

When I think of vacation, I think of the kids home from school and the NEVER ending Popsicles I keep the freezer stocked with :) So for my card I made an easel card with non other than a Popsicle.
I LOVE the adorable faces that came with the June SOTM set and had to use one of cuties from that set. I inked up her eyes using my copic markers and my white gel pen as well as adding some pink chalk to her cheeks and more white gel pen doodles.
The easel card is a file from the Silhouette store that I altered slightly to cut the way I wanted. I did end up pulling the Designer Paper to the inside mat and using My Creative Time~Vintage Stitched Label Die added my sentiment also from the June SOTM. Finally I wanted to add something else to the Popsicle so I tied a bow using some Lemon Tart Trendy Twine.

Supplies used:
Paper~ Kraft, Navy {Stash}, Echo Park~A Perfect Summer
Stamps~ Peachy Keen Stamps~ June SOTM
Dies/Cuts~  Popsicle~Silhouette Store, MCT~Vintage Stitched Label Dies
Extra's~  Trendy Twine~Lemon Tart, Copic, white gel pen, chalk, pop dots
