Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge 21

What a whirlwind couple of weeks it has been! Kathy and I arrived in California on Sunday for CHA's annual Winter Show. It has been a lot of fun browsing the different displays and seeing all the amazing new products being demoed! Among our favorites yesterday was Staz On's new metallic ink (coming out in March), altered acrylic, and the Craftwell eCraft (no mat, and custom shapes!). Our legs are achy as we prepare to walk the second half of this massive show today.

Now, for the winner of Challenge 20 - pickrandom.com chose 9. Lisa Buttafuoco! Congratulations, Lisa! Please email me your details, and we'll ship your book to you. :)

The next challenge is a little bit different than anything we've done so far, but our designers were up for the challenge! And boy, did they create some beauties! Here's the recipe with a twist for Challenge 21:

  • Project can be in any format (with the exception of digital art, hybrid projects are totally ok!)
  • Must contain a vintage item or be inspired by something vintage. The vintage item(s) can be a postcard, old love letter (I love those), an old button, an aged photo – whatever peaks your interest!
  • Must contain at least one stamped image

The "twist" is that this challenge will be judged! The designers, Kathy, and I will judge the entries based on the following criteria:

  • Interpretation
  • Quality of Work
  • Original creativity in the project

Your project needs be linked into Mr. Linky before February 8, 2010 to be entered to win the prize for this challenge (listed beneath designer's projects). Only one entry per person, please. :)Onto the adorable projects created by our DT!

Viv has created a gorgeous, gorgeous card in a pink and green color scheme using PK-240.

Lorie's frame-worthy recipe card was made using PK-402.

Nikki combined a darling vintage postcard with PK-490 faces on PK-239 Faceless Fruit!

Emma captured the fun look of the 50's with this super cute retro scrapbook page using PK-490!

Janice has made this romantic vintage wall hanging using PK-237 and PK-034.


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!

Hugs, Angelica

    Super super super jealous that you guys are like in Crafters Heaven...CHA what I could do there! HHMMM maybe it is a good thing that I am not there!

  6. Hi Carol!
    A hybrid project is a project that uses digital (printed) images or embellishments and traditional scrap elements (cardstock, ribbon, etc). If you do not digi-scrap, then you have nothing to worry about! I just wanted to make it clear for digi-crafters that there does have to be some physical element to it. :)

    And we'll still only have one entry per person on this challenge as well.

    Hugs, Angelica
