Peachy Keen Stamps- Challenge #29

Over at Peachy Keen Stamp's Challenge Blog, their next challenge is to show off your favorite summertime recipe, and highlight the use of some Peachy Keen Stamps!

I wandered across Peachy Keen for my first time over on Emma's My Creative Time - and have been in love ever since! Being as frugal as I must to continue my hobby/passion I saved my pennies for their Everyday Character Face Assortment PK-490.

I just got them, my first set of face stamps about a week ago, and feel like I'm making up for lost time now, I use them so often! Everything needs a face, and now I can give them their faces back!

My printer is out of ink, and has been for the last month or so because I just keep spacing whenever I leave the house to take it with me and get a new one, or at least this one refilled. Anywhoo, my handwriting isn't gorgeous or anything, but you can read the recipe okay, so it'll do!

I used:

Peachy Keen Stamps, Everyday Character Face Assortment, PK-490
Cricut Expressions
Indie Art Cartridge, the strawberry cut, in various sizes
Once Upon A Princess, for the whipped blob- actually the top of 'cupcake 2' just cut off.
Red Dye based ink (for inking the pink paper I cut the strawberries on)
Black Pigment ink (for the faces)
Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Folder (for the strawberry bodies)
D'vine Swirls Cuttlebug Folder (for the Whip Blob body)

For the stitching around the edges and whites of the eyes I used my White Jelly Roll Pen, also ordered from Peachy Keen Stamps.
