The Queen's Royal Court Design Team: PSA Essentials

***** If you are looking for Alex's Gotta have Friends Blog Hop, please click here *****


*** Today's Blog Hop is sponsored by PSA Essentials ***

Hi Everyone, I am super excited to have you join us on another blog hop by The Queen's Royal Court Design Team. This blog hop is sponsored by PSA Essentials who is also joining us on our hop today. Once again, here are the Queen's Royal Court Design Team members:

If you have arrived at this blog from Jenny's Crazy About Cricut Blog, you are on the right track. If not, just click here to start the hop from Theresa's The Scrapbooking Queen blog and keep hopping until you're back here. If you should lose your way on the hop, just come back and refer back to the list above to get back on track.

Have you heard about PSA Essentials' Personalized Stamps and their Peel and Stick Packs? I've heard good things about them but I wasn't really sure what it was all about until I received this from our generous sponsor:

I opened up the plastic baggies and realized that basically the PSA Essentials' stamp is a self-inking personalized stamp with an interchangeable center! Because the ring and the center can be separated, it can interchange with the Peel and Stick Packs

So for example, I can stamp it so that my name is in the center or...

....I can switch the center out with a stamp from their Peel and Stick Pack to make a brand new stamp! 

How cool is that?

The best part about the Peel and Stick stamps is that I can use them with the personalized stamps or I can use them on their own. Just slap one onto an acrylic block and use them like any other clear stamps. And that is exactly what I did with my Peel and Stick stamps.

The Peel and Stick stamps come in several designs but my absolute favorite line has go to be the SMIRK Collection. I couldn't have been more excited when I received the Smirk-Coffee Confidants pack. Smirk girls + Coffee, seriously? This pack was made for me! These stamps are so super cute. My 5 year old thinks that the girls should have eyes but I love the images just the way they are. 

I think that the stamped image is the perfect size too. Look, the girls fit perfectly in their Cadillac, so they must be the perfect size right? LOL!

For this card, I used the Lettering Delights' California Love graphic set (Cadillac), the Big Apple graphic set (storefront), and the New York SVGs set (storefront). I used Make-the-Cut to cut all the layers out by using the print-and-cut technique. 

All the layers were adhered to the card with foam tape for added dimensions. 


The decorative edge on the black cardstock was made by using a border punch and the yellow label was also from a punch. The "Fabulous Friends" stamp comes from the same Smirk-Coffee Confidant stamp set.
