Hello again… it’s been a few days… unexpected family arrived and oh, my goodness. SO SO SO wonderful to see them, to hug them, to cherish them – IN PERSON!
The stamp bundle I am working with today is called Sweet As A Peach; the papers coordinate and are You’re A Peach DSP. They are so pretty! The b right cheerful colors and patterns of the papers are just amazing. Here’s the card.
I began by stamping the peach from Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Calypso Coral ink on a Basic White panel. On that same panel I stamped the leaves for the peach (Pear Pizzazz ink) and the background circle comes from Watercolor Shapes stamp set stamped in Pale Papaya ink. I also stamped a set of the leaves on a branch in stamped off Pear Pizzazz ink (and that comes from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set).On that same Basic White panel I stamped the sentiment (from Sweet As A Peach) in Balmy Blue ink. I also stamped the same set of leaves on a piece of Vellum in Pear Pizzazz ink and heat set that ink on the back side using the warm setting on the heat tool. With all the stamping done, I die cut everything using the Peach Dies and for the circle I used Layering Circles Dies. While I was die cutting I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut my background papers from You’re a Peach DSP. The DSP was cut from the same panel meaning… I used the largest Stitched Rectangle Die and then the third largest Stitched Rectangle die and centered it inside the larger die, creating a frame – then die cut. I also die cut two stems and two sets of small double leaves from Pear Pizzazz card stock.
Layering: the larger DSP frame is on a panel of Pale Papaya card stock and adhered with liquid glue; the smaller rectangle on another panel of Pale Papaya card stock- also adhered with liquid glue. The layers were put together with dimensionals. The circle was off-set and attached with dimensioanals to the card front. On the circle is the peach, also on dimensionals. (I did adhere the leaves to the peach with a dab of liquid glue before attaching to the circle.) I adhered the stem to the Vellum piece and added one of the small double leaves with liquid glue. This was slipped behind the circle and attached with a bit of liquid glue. I added another stem to the stamped leaves on Basic White and attached double leaves again – and slipped that under the circle, attaching with liquid glue. The sentiment panel got mini dimensionals and was placed on the card front. For an added touch three Loose Flower Flourishes were attached with dabs of liquid glue.
For the inside… I adhered a panel of Basic White card stock to the inside of the card with liquid glue; then used the leftover die cut of the Stitched Rectangles, trimmed it a bit and adhered it to the edges of the just adhered panel.
I did no other stamping on this inside panel – could have but chose not to. The sentiment on the front allows this card to be used for so MANY occasions.
For the envelope, I adhered a piece of one of the You’re A Peach DSP to the flap and trimmed to fit. I then stamped the sweet flowers on the front in Pale Papaya ink, then added the center of the flower with Soft Suede ink.
Voila! Love the colors/ papers/ small Loose Flower Flourishes – and the dies are exceptional in this bundle.
