Sweet as a Peach
When I saw the You’re a Peach Suite in the new Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog, I knew I had to have it. For many years, my dad grew peaches (as well as apples), and peaches have always been my favorite fruit. There’s just nothing like a sweet, juicy peach on a hot summer day!
I ordered the Sweet as a Peach Bundle, which includes the Sweet as a Peach Stamp Set and coordinating Peach Dies, as well as the You’re a Peach Designer Series Paper (DSP). I haven’t ordered the Mini Jam Jars yet, but I may for gifts.
I thought it was fitting to showcase this card today, because Amelia, Mom, and I are making peach jam this morning. I think she’ll enjoy helping, and I know she’ll love tasting!
Isn’t this DSP gorgeous? I’m loving both sides of every sheet. I used both sides of one sheet for this card. I a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of the DSP, then cut about 1-1/2″ off one side and flipped it to the opposite side. I layered both pieces to a Calypso Coral card base.
I inked the peaches with Pale Papaya Classic Ink, then used a Sponge Dauber to add some Calypso Coral ink along the edges. Next, I stamped on Pale Papaya Cardstock. I repeated this for the second peach, then die-cut them with the Peach Dies. The leaves and stem are Granny Apple Green Classic Ink on Soft Seafoam Cardstock. After I die-cut the leaves, I added the peaches and leaves to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The three blossoms are stamped in So Saffron Classic Ink on Basic White Cardstock. After I die-cut them, I added a flower center with Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends. Two of the blossoms are added with Stampin’ Dimensionals; the third is simply adhered to the DSP with SEAL.
The sentiment is also from the Sweet as a Peach Stamp Set. I stamped in Calypso Coral ink on Pale Papaya Cardstock and punched it and the Calypso Coral layer using the Double Oval Punch.

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely, “peachy” day!
This is so pretty Buffy. It’s like a happy summer day! I bet the jam party will be wonderful! My peaches have a ways to go before I will be processing them. I’m thinking about making peach juice this year!
Peach juice sounds yummy! We don’t have any peach trees any more. My dad got tired of the late spring freezes that killed them (or hail that ruined them). The last time the blossoms froze, he pushed them all out and planted something else. But our local grocery store has lots of frozen peaches, and they taste just as good after they’re processed into jam!
I am so jealous of you and Jackie and your peaches! Have fun making jam with Amelia and Mom.
We had fun – but don’t be too jealous. I used frozen peaches. Much easier than peeling and cutting! Most of the peaches available now are “cling,” and there’s so much waste (imo) cutting around the pit.
Lovely card – the colours just say ‘happy summer day’! I’m sure that you’ll all have fun making your peach jam 🙂
Thanks, Deborah! I had fun making the jam; Amelia spent the time checking on the fairies in her fairy garden – so we both had fun! (Making jam isn’t that much fun for a 6 year-old. Blend, mix, boil, pour. Kind of boring, but the results are amazing!)
