Peachy Keen Mini Release Blog Hop with Prizes

If you came here from Lisa's site, then you are following along fine. Today we celebrate more new stamps from Peachy Keen!  They recently unveiled their new line of stamps called Country Bumpkin.  They also have some great new face stamps you'll want to check out HERE.  Sorry I was late getting my project posted today!  I totally dropped the ball.

BLOG CANDY ALERT!

Every design team member on the hop has a $15 gift certificate to Peachy Keen to give away!  To enter the drawing, first jump on over to the Peachy Keen blog HERE and check out the Country Bumpkin sets.  Then, leave a comment on this blog post with the name of your favorite set! I will draw a random winner on Thursday.

And now through Wednesday (11:59 PM CDT) Peachy Keen Stamps is offering an additional 10% off their tiered discounts when you use PROMO CODE: MINIHOP at checkout! Total savings of up to 20% OFF on everything in the shop!  Go HERE to start shopping!

I got to use this cute little guy called Tanner Turkey from the Country Bumpkin collection.  Would you believe there is NO COLORING on this little guy?  I used a technique called paper piecing and if you want to learn how to make rich looking pieces like this without having a shred of coloring skills, than check out my tutorial below.

Head on over to Heidi's site for more great ideas!

Paper Piecing Tutorial
all card stocks, designer papers and inks from Stampin' Up!

1) Stamp CB-03 Tanner Turkey onto Crumb Cake cardstock with Black Staz On ink.  Cut out and sponge chest, face, neck and thighs with Chocolate Chip ink.  This is optional, but you can use a blender pen and some ink from your Chocolate Chip pad to add shadows around the outer edges of the sponged body parts.  Stamp wings on Crumb Cake cardstock, cut out and sponge edges with Chocolate Chip ink.

2) Stamp feet and beak on Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  Cut out and sponge edges with Cajun Craze ink.  Stamp hat onto Bravo Burgundy cardstock, cut out and sponge edges with Chocolate Chip ink.  Stamp feathers around neck onto Very Vanilla cardstock, cut out and lightly sponge edges with More Mustard ink.

3) Stamp hat buckle onto More Mustard cardstock and cut out.  Stamp hat band onto Early Espresso card stock and cut out.  Stamp waddle onto Cherry Cobbler card stock and cut out.

4) Stamp turkey onto 2 different print papers.  Cut out the outer feather pieces on one and the main feather pieces on the other.  Lightly sponge the edges with a coordinating ink.  I used a retired SU paper for my turkey.

5) Glue main feathers onto body.  Glue feet and beak onto body.  Glue hat onto head.  Glue neck feathers onto body.

6) Glue outer feather edges on.  Glue hand band and then buckle on hat.  Glue waddle onto face.  Attach wings to body with dimensionals.

Oh Kim! I REALLY love seeing how you went about paper piecing this! You are so brilliant, and make it look so easy. This stamp is perfect for piecing, and you've done it just beautifully. I love the layering, too. The dimension is fabulous! I sure enjoyed the card class with you, and took my card to stamp club last night to show it off. Everyone was very impressed!!!! It was great to meet you!!!!

Love and hugs,
Lorie
