Peachy Keen LFIF Challenge #11

Thanks for visiting me today and checking out the Let's Face it Friday Challenge.  Be sure to check out the other great ideas at the Challenge Site HERE.


The Challenge:
Create a project (can be a card, scrapbook layout, altered item, etc.) with either real or faux stitching. 



Play along at the challenge site for a change to win an assortment of Peachy Keen Stamps (winner's choice)!!!!  What an awesome prize!  All you need to do is go to the challenge site and link a new project by March 17th.  Please be sure to link DIRECTLY to your project and not just to the homepage/album.


I decided to make a Sunshine card.  Mr. Sunshine was created using the Peachy Keen Everyday Character Faces Assortment (PK-490).  


Stamp the largest face with black Staz On ink on Summer Sun cardstock,  Punch out the face using a 1 3/4" Circle punch.  Add white to the eyes with a white unibal gel pen.  Add blush to the cheeks with a stipple brush and regal rose ink.  Cut a strip of summer sun cardstock 3" wide.  Using your paper cutter (or scissors), cut strips of cardstock for the sun rays.  Make sure to angle the cuts so they are narrower on one end.  Follow the same process with a contrasting yellow.  I used a glitter coated Coordinations cardstock.  Glue the smaller strips onto the larger strips.  Glue the rays onto the sun and then use a circle cutter or die to cut a circle around the sun.  I offset the cut so the sun was in the upper right corner.


The layout of my card is a scallop circle easel.  Basic instructions are located HERE.  After cutting my sun, I cut another circle the same size in soft sky (which was embossed with the stampin up lattice folder).  Mount the sun on the blue circle with dimensionals.  Cut a larger circle in melon mambo and die cut a scallop circle for the base.  For this card, I used the sizzix scallop circle as detailed in the basic instructions linked above.  After gluing the melon circle onto my glitter strip scallop circle, I zig zag stitched all the way around the circle then mounted the sun circle piece.
