Hello Peeps!

Happy Good Friday! I hope you have the day off as well!

Today's card was inspired by the pkg of Peeps I saw at target this week. i think they are so cute but I hate to eat them! LOL! I guess that's a good thing right? So, when I saw the challenge at Off the Wall Craftiness, I zeroed in on those funny little peeps!

These little guys are sugary just like the real thing. On the pink one, I mixed a new Melon mambo Embossing Powder (that will be available May 1 in the Stampin' Up Summer Mini!)
with Iridescent Ice Embossing powder. I ran my Versa mark Ink pad all over the melon mambo card stock and then sprinkled it with the mixture. After a shot of the heat gun, it was so very sugary! The yellow one is done just with Iridescent Ice.

I punched these little sugary sweets using the following punches: 1 3/4" Circle. 1 3/8" Circle, Medium Oval, Two Step owl Punch (eyes.) The sentiment is from Something to Celebrate and the punch ed image is a sneak peek from the upcoming IBC! It is called Four frames.

My current addiction is to rip my ribbon apart. I love the frayed edges it creates! This is Daffodil Delight Striped Grosgrain Ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by today!
