Peachy Keen or Beast?

Peachy Keen, Beast, Oh Snap…  The lingo!  I’m an 80’s girl so this is all new lingo to me and makes me think about the day I was sitting across the dinner table with my parents saying, “Gag me with a spoon” and my Dad looked at me like I had 4 eyes.  

Can any of you relate to the 80’s lingo? 


I’m sure you can.  I can say my 80’s lingo to my kids and they laugh hysterically.  Then it’s gets SO NOT funny when I turn around and use their lingo to them. “Brandon, you are so Beast!”  I get a look from him as though I’m from another planet.  He does love his mama though…. this face shows it:

B and Me


The  funny thing is I am one of the rare birds that likes these fun new lingo words that plague the youngsters.  For realsie. <grin> I guess it doesn’t come out the same way when I say versus my pre-teen.  Like Russ says, “Oh well!”


Seeing some of Stampin Up! stamp images with these words makes it even better. It makes me smile and they make FUN cards.  Who doesn’t love a FUN card? 


I created this fun card below and I fell in love with all of the stamps- ESPECIALLY the Hardwood Background stamp.  I used the Hardwood with Crumb Cake cardstock and Soft Suede ink and dang if it doesn’t look like REAL  hardwood.  *Love*

Something else I did was used my Word Bubbles Framelits on an old vintage map I bought at an antique store and I placed it under the burlap ribbon.  I had planned to use it a different way but this is where it landed.  The word bubble framelits are awesome and so trendy. There are great ways to use them besides just die cutting your stamped images.  Try using them as a stencil to create a word bubble on cardstock using ink and a sponge.  Ca-UTE!

When we get unclose and personal with this card you can see lots of little gold specs which is my Smooch ink again.  Gotta say I love that stuff.  I also used the On Film Framelits for the little camera and my Gold Foil paper.  I’m going to stock up on that Gold Foil paper.  It’s really a must have product right now.  Last set I used was the Hip Notes on the Essential Wooden Elements and this really completed my card as far as big elements.  The little added touches are the fun Candy Dots and rhinestones.  


What is YOUR verbiage of choice? Are you boss? Peachy? Beast? Whatev’s? We could go on, but really these all make me laugh like a little girl.  That’s not so bad, right?

  1. Your card is fabulous…I love to watch restoration projects on DIY and other channels and this background remind me of reclaimed wood that they take from floors, walls and barns….love it! And yes all of your embellishments really help make your design pop….wonderful job! I am a product of the mid-40s and 50s and more so the 60s…but I like to play to with the kids today as well…they do give us strange looks!

  2. It’s fun getting the strange looks from the kids. LOL. I love them. This background is my new favorite. It looks real when stamped on Crumb Cake. I love it!!
