PKS LFIF Challenge 10 Think Spring

Today is another Peachy Keen Let's Face it Friday challenge.  Challenge #10 was for us to create a spring inspired handmade gift featuring a PKS face stamp.  I finally got to use 2 of my Peachy Keen sets that I know I'll be using frequently over the next 2 months!  My little quacker was created with the Peachy Keen Bird Faces and More stamp set (PK-134).  The greeting is from the Peachy Keen Duck Dolls set (PK-266).  Please be sure to check out the other great projects at the challenge site HERE.  If you play along, you could win 3 bottles of limited edition Tattered Angels glimmer mist.  Instructions for my little quacker are below.
Little Quacker Instructions:
1) Punch the following pieces:

1 1/4" Circle in So Saffron for head
1 large petal from Blossom Petals in So Saffron for body
2 medium petals from Blossom Petals in So Saffron for wings
2 Word Windows in Peach Parfait for legs
2 small wide petals from Blossom Petals in Peach Parfait for feet
1 small Boho Blossom in So Saffron for head
2 - 1/2" Circles and 2 small Boho Blossoms in So Saffron for wing tips (optional to use with sign)

2) Sponge the edges of all saffron pieces with more mustard ink.  Trim off the pointed ends on the feet pieces.  Sponge the edges of all peach pieces with pumpkin pie ink. 

3) Stamp duck bill and eyes onto face with black staz on ink.  Add whites to eyes with uni-ball white gel pen. Color bill with peach parfait and pumpkin pie markers.  Add blush to cheeks with stipple brush and regal rose ink.

4) Glue word windows onto small petals.  Glue legs onto body.  Glue wings onto body.  Attach head with dimensional.  Glue boho blossom onto top of head.  If you create a sign for the duck to hold, fold each small boho blossom in half and glue onto 1/2" Circle (wing tips).  Sponge edges of wing tips with mustard ink and attach on sign as shown in the picture above.

Box was created using the Stampin' Up! Sizzix Mini Milk Carton die.  I cut 2 and put them end to end to make a larger box.

Thanks to Kathy who sent me some fun valentine mailboxes from the Target Hot Spot.  I decorated mine with a little cupid.  The sweet face is from the new Peachy Keen Wide Eyed Kids stamp set (PK-451).   Instructions are below the picture.

Cupid Assembly Instructions:

1) Punch the following pieces using Stampin' Up! punches:

3 Scallop Circles (1 3/4") in So Saffron - HAIR
Ornament in Blushing Bride - HEAD
2 Small Hearts in Blushing Bride - EARS
1 3/4" Circle in Blushing Bride - BELLY
3 Modern Labels in Blushing Bride - ARMS & NECK
4 Medium Ovals in Blushing Bride - SHOULDERS & HANDS
2 Birds from 2 Step Bird in white glitter coated cardstock - WINGS
8 small petals from Blossom Petals (occassions mini) in white glitter cardstock - WINGS



2)  Cut one of the scallop circles in half and then one of the halves in half.  Trim the top off the ornament and round out the bottom.  Round out the bottoms of the small hearts.  Stamp the face onto ornament using the Peachy Keen Wide Eyed Kids (PK-451) stamp set and black Staz On pad.  Add white to eyes with uni-ball white gel pen.  Color in mouth with black zig and color tongue with red marker.  Add blush to cheeks with stipple brush and regal rose ink.

3) Sponge the edges of all blushing bride pieces with blushing bride ink.  Sponge edges of all saffron pieces with more mustard ink.  Glue ears onto head.  Glue 1/4 scallop circle pieces onto head as shown.  Trim away excess along the top of the head.

4) Glue other half of scallop circle onto back top of head. Glue neck onto head.  Glue 2 full scallop circles onto back of head & neck.  Glue medium ovals onto top of modern label arm pieces.  Glue head/neck onto body.  Attach arms to back of body with dimensionals.  Glue petals onto birds to form wings.  Attach wings to back of body with dimensionals. 

5) Fold 2 medium ovals in half and attach to ends of arms.  You can place objects in the hands and glue the ovals closed.  I cut 2 narrow strips of glitter cardstock and attached small hearts onto the ends to create arrows.  I also added a small heart to the chest.  Attach cupid to back of mailbox or back of other box or packaging.
