Peachy Keen LFIF Challenge #30 Critter Valentine

The Peachy Keen Let's Face it Friday challenge this week is a color combo challenge.  I really like these colors together.  The equivalent Stampin' Up! colors for this challenge are Blushing Bride, Pool Party, Pink Pirouette & Poppy Parade.  These are great colors for a Valentines card, so I made a little Bucky Beaver punch art character and stamped his face with the PK-754 Critter Faces Medium face set.   Check out the other great projects at the Challenge blog HERE.



This is a Criss-Cross card style. You can get the step by step tutorial at Splitcoast Stampers HERE.  The papers are a combination of Stampin' Up!, DCWV and My Minds Eye. See the step by step instructions for Bucky Beaver below.

Supplies Needed:
Close to Cocoa card stock
Pink Pirouette card stock
Chocolate Chip ink
Cherry Cobbler ink
Basic Black ink
Regal Rose ink
Island Indigo ink (greeting)
uni-ball white gel pen
stipple brush
scoring board or cutter with score blade
1-3/8" Circle punch
Small Oval punch
Extra Wide Oval punch
1/2" Circle punch
3/4" Circle punch
Full Heart punch
sponge daubers or stamping sponges
assorted designer papers

Step by Step:
Punch the following pieces with Stampin' Up! punches:
1-3/8" Circle in Close to Cocoa (HEAD)
Extra Wide Oval in  Close to Cocoa  (BODY)
(2) Small Ovals in  Close to Cocoa  (LEGS)
(4) 3/4" Circles in  Close to Cocoa (FEET & PAWS)
(2) 1/2" Circles in  Close to Cocoa  (EARS)
Full Heart in Pink Pirouette

Score a small piece of Early Espresso every 1/8", turn and score every 1/8" to create a cross hatch design.  Punch a Large Oval out for the tail.  Stamp the face onto 1-3/8" Circle with PK-754 Critter Faces Medium face set.  Add highlights to face with uni-ball white gel pen.  Stipple regal rose ink onto cheeks (I love the PKS brushes HERE).  Stamp greeting on heart (PK-281 Valentine Cupids) with Cherry Cobbler ink. Sponge edges of heart with cherry cobbler ink.

Sponge the edges of close to cocoa pieces with chocolate chip ink. Clip the bottom off two 3/4" circles for feet.  Glue ears onto head.  Attach head to body with dimensionals.  Glue legs onto back of body. Attach feet with dimensionals.  Glue tail onto back of body.  Attach heart to front with dimensional and attach paws with dimensionals.
