Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Today’s card is made with the Stampin’ Up! Sweet As A Peach stamp bundle and the pretty You’re A Peach designer series paper. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
We have a color challenge this week and here is the sweet color palette we are using:
I adhered a thin strip of Calypso Coral dotted You’re A Peach designer series paper to a Balmy Blue dotted DSP and then adhered them both to the floral DSP. I adhered the layered DSP panel to the front of Mango Melody card base.
I cut another panel of Balmy Blue dotted You’re A Peach DSP with the third largest Layering Circles die and cut a Calypso Coral panel with the scalloped circle die and adhered them together. I adhered them to the card base with liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Pear Pizzazz on Basic White and cut it out with the little label from the Peach dies.
I inked the large peach from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Pale Papaya ink and used a sponge dauber to apply Calypso Coral ink around the edge. I stamped it on Basic White and cut it out with the coordinating die. I repeated this so that I had two peaches. I inked up the large leaves with Pear Pizzazz ink and used a sponge dauber to add Soft Suede ink to the stem. I stamped this on Basic White and cut the leaves out with the coordinating die. I repeated it so I had a leaf for each peach. I adhered the leaves to the peaches with glue dots and adhered the first peach to the circle with glue dots and the second with dimensionals. I adhered the label to the circle with glue dots to finish the card front.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the leaf branch from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Pear Pizzazz in the corner of a Basic White panel. I inked the small peaches in Mango Melody and Calypso Coral using the same technique as the front peaches and stamped the little peaches on the branches. I stamped the sentiments in Calypso Coral and Pear Pizzazz and adhered a strip of the floral You’re A Peach DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
The Stampin’ Up! Sweet As A Peach bundle is wonderful with gorgeous images, great sentiments and so many versatile dies. And the You’re a Peach designer series paper is so pretty – it’s a great combination for summertime cards for any occasion!
