September PKS Release Reveal and Challenges

Happy Peachy Keen Stamp Release Day!! I hope you were able to join us for the release party tonight! If not, you can still go back to PKS ning site and see all the amazingly talented DT projects. My design team sisters are amazing and they have created some wowzers.

Here is my card for Gigi's ChallengeCreate any project that includes a Peachy Keen Face and at least 1 Die Cut.  

I cut this adorable little girl out from the brand new Cricut Cartridge called Create a Friend. It has so many great little kid characters on it and your Peachy Keen Stamp faces will look amazing on them. Just like the Moodies face I used on her. She looks so adorable with that face! She was cut at 3.5 inches.

The mixing bowl is actually the small coffee cup from the new PKSC-21 September 2013. I just cut the handle of and it looks like a bowl.

The the mixer or egg beater comes from the new PK-1337 In the Kitchen. I stamped and paper pieced it and then colored the handle in with a copic marker to match the bowl.

The cake also comes from the new stamp of the month kit. I stamped it with Versamark ink and then put pearl embossing powder on it. I then colored the cake body with a Lemon Copic Marker. The cake stand was cut from an SVG from KaDoodle Bug Designs called Birthday Party Kids. 

I combined three sentiments to come up with my birthday sayings. "Whippin' Up" comes from In the Kitchen. I used the a from "Hot Flash!!". It as well as "Happy Cake Day!" come from the Stamp of the Month.

I hope you like my card! Here is the details for entering in Gigi's Release Challenge:

We're sponsoring TWO challenges this month and will be awarding one $25 Gift Certificate to one random winner from each challenge.  If you enter both challenges, you double your chances of winning a prize, but you do need to create one project for each challenge, as combining challenges is not allowed.
Using Peachy Keen Stamps on your project IS a requirement if you want to be considered to win the Gift Certificate! 
You will have until Wednesday, September 11th at Midnight to play along.
We will randomly choose a winner from each group of challenge entries.  Those winners will be announced and their photo featured here on the PK Connection on Thursday, September 12th.
