Peachy Keen LFIF Challenge #23 Back to School

This project was so fun!  I love owls and instantly thought of a smarty owl when I got the new Peachy Keen face set called Winter Wonderland Faces 1-1/8" (PK-483).  Check it out HERE.  Once again, I got to use an Action Wobble Spring to attach the head.  These are so fun!  PKS has the springs in stock HERE.

Let's Face it Friday Challenge #23 was to create a teacher gift featuring a PKS face set.  Check out the other great project ideas at the challenge site HERE.  Instructions for my project are below the picture.

BLOG CANDY ALERT!!
I have the Snowmany Faces 1-1/8" Face set to give away!  For a chance to win, all you have to do is take a moment to check out the newest release of PKS stamps HERE (towards the top of page).  Then, leave a comment mentioning one other stamp set besides the Winter Wonderland or Snowmany Faces (this way I know you visited).  On Monday morning, I will randomly select a winner.  If you do not have an email on your profile, please make sure to check back to see if you won!

Instructions:
Punch out the following pieces using Stampin' Up! paper punches:
1-3/4" Circle in Crumb Cake - HEAD
2-1/2" Circle in Crumb Cake - BODY
(2) large petals from Blossom Petals Builder in Soft Suede - WINGS
(2) large petals from Blossom Petals Builder in Crumb Cake - LEGS
(9) large petals from Blossom Petals Builder in Very Vanilla - CHEST
(5) Small Hearts in Peach Parfait - FEET & BEAK
(2) medium petals from Blossom Petals Builder in Crumb Cake - HEAD

For the glasses, first punch a hole in black cardstock using the 1/2" circle.  Line up the 3/4" circle over the punched hole to create a ring shape.  Punch 2 of these.  Punch or cut a small piece of black for the bridge on the glasses (I used the retired slot punch).

Sponge the edges of all crumb cake and very vanilla pieces with crumb cake ink.  Sponge edges of soft suede pieces with early espresso ink.  Sponge edges of peach parfait pieces with cajun craze ink.

Stamp the bird face from Winter Wonderland Faces 1-1/8" (PK-483) with black ink on the 1-3/4" circle. Color the whites and highlights of the eyes with a uniball white gel pen.  Stipple or sponge regal rose ink onto the cheeks (I love the cheek chalk brushes from PKS. details HERE). Glue the glasses onto face.  Attach one of the small hearts with a dimensional over the stamped beak (or color the beak instead). Glue the medium petals onto top of head to create "tufted horns"

For the body, first glue the crumb cake petals onto bottom of 2-1/2" circle for legs.  Glue soft suede wings onto each side.  Glue 2 hearts together to form each foot.  Glue feet onto bottom of legs.  Layer the vanilla petals onto the chest.  Starting at the bottom, layer one on each side and then place one in the middle.  Place another 3 above those and then the last 3 above those.  The tops of the petals in the top row will go above the body circle.  

Attach head to body with an Action Wobble Spring.  You can buy them from PKS.  Details are HERE.  An alternate is to attach with a dimensional.

For the treat box, I filled a small gusset bag with Werthers caramel candies and tied the top closed with a striped grosgrain ribbon.  Create a small box bottom by measuring the width and depth of the filled bag and add 2 inches to both dimensions.  Cut the designer paper or card stock and then score at 1" on each side.  Clip on the 2 score lines on 2 ends and then fold the tabs up and glue in place to form a box bottom.  Use sticky strip to attach gusset bag into bottom of box.  Make a tag to tie onto the top of bag.

This owl is the cutest. Where do you come up with these ideas? My favorite new release is the PK 335 Christmas Heads. These would be with so many of the PK faces.

CharityHand said...

Awesome owl and I just love to see someone using Peachy Keen stamps. That was the first online order I ever placed and I still use those faces. And the cute snowman that I have. He's hugging the ground in sheer joy because of the snow.

Well, I may be too late for blog candy, but I did want to tell you that the scrapbook pages are lovely! Also, I know you said not to mention "snowmany kids" as a fave, but it is! I would say wide-eyed kids is adorable as well, but I have such a weakness for snowmen! Love the adorable gingerbread kids kit too!

ljurecek said...

Your owl is super cute! Love the set you used for it but Cute and Cuddly is sweet, too.
