PKS: Sketch Challenge #45

Peachy Keen is having another great challenge over at:
Go over and check it out!
I decided to stick with my Alice and Wonderland theme while still following the sketch the Peachy Keen provided! I used the Once Upon a Princess cartridge again and had a blast creating Alice this time. I created the Queen of Hearts with this cartridge for my last challenge! I hope you enjoy!

Queen of Hearts!

I love anything Alice and Wonderland and ever since I received the Once Upon a Princess cartridge for Christmas, I have been dying to make the Queen of Hearts. I have also been dying to use my Cuttlebug Queen of Heart folder too. So I fed my craving today and made a Valentine card for my husband using both. What do you think? Isn't she pretty?

Throwback Thursday w/ Emma!

This week's Throwback Thursday, presented by Emma at My Creative Time, is to create a card using either the "Just Because Cards" or the "Wild Card" cartridge. One extra challenge is to include a stamped sentiment. I used the wagon from the "Just Because Cards" cartridge and the sentiment "Unfrog-getable" from MPS "More-Punny-licious" stamps. I also used the froggie from my favorite cartridge "Create a Critter". I hope you enjoy!

PKS: Let's Face it Friday: Altered Card Storage

This week's Peachy Keen Stamp Let's Face it Friday Challenge is to create an altered container using PKS faces to store cards in. So much fun, RIGHT??
I chose to make another one of my altered Tampon Boxes for this challenge. I have made these in the past, but I created this one just for this challenge. I never thought to use PKS faces on them before. I am pretty happy with the way it turned out.
Yes, this box was made out of an actual Tampax tampon box. I used an small blade to under the glued part of the box very carefully, so I could lay it flat. I then traced the flat box onto a pattern piece of cardstock and a solid piece. The patterned piece was for the outside of the box and the solid id the liner. I then used my ATG gun to adhere the cardstock to the flat box and then I put the box back together using hot glue. Finally I decorated it using embellishments and of course PKS faces. I hope you enjoy!
