I am sure there is others but so far this is what I have found. The card I am creating today is the Popular slim line card. For this month I chose to feature one of the suites from the annual catalog, “You’re a Peach” on page 61 and is on sale during the Designer Series Paper Sale that started July 1. You will get 15% off off your purchase.
This dsp reminds me of the peach truck that comes to our local farmers market. The truck is loaded with fresh peaches, peach jams, pies and so much more!
The colors in this set fits together perfectly, as I looked through the dsp I see a little of the pioneer woman flair in one of the papers. I love pioneers woman style and colors, spring year round and so cheerful, but that card will come at a later date, so keep a look out for it to come in your email.
For this card I am using the What’s Cookin and Sweet as a Peach stamp sets. It reminds me of my family getting together to make all kinds of jams and jellys. My mom and all 6 of her sisters and grandma preparing everything in huge pots over a fire outdoors. Mixing, adding sugar, boiling the jars and lids. Oh how I miss those days.
Cardstock base Mango Melody-8 1/2 x 7 scored at 3 1/2 on 7 inch side
Cardstock Layer Pale Pappya- 3 x 8
DSP Layer from You’re a Peach – 2 3/4 x 7 3/4
I stamped the spoon and bowl from the What’s Cookin stamp set with early espresso and fussy cutted them out. I then used the masking technique to stamp the peaches to look like they were ready to be put in the bowl to mix. I used the retired apple builder punch to punch out three peaches and layered them for demension. I sponged the edges with calypso coral and stamped the sentiment from the Sweet as a Peach stamp set. I then added some sequins and a bow to finish the card. I used the fork method to create the bow. Below is the directions for the bow. I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I did and you will create one yourself.
