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.
