Good Thursday morning my stamping friends! Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Color Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here is my card using this weeks Colors.
I used the Stampin’ Up! Sweet As A Peach Bundle along with the You’re A Peach Designer Series Paper for my card today.
These are our colors for this week.
My design is from Sunday Stamps Getting Sketchy #262.
I started by adhering a panel of You’re A Peach DSP to a Balmy Blue card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut 2 panels of You’re A Peach DSP using the Ornate Layers Dies. I cut the 2 panels in half and adhered them to a Calypso Coral mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. This was how I was able to make the strips long enough for my card front. I adhered the 2 layered panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the stem/leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet As A Peach Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink. I stamped the trio of peach image from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set on the stem image in Pale Papaya Ink, sponged with my Dauber in Calypso Coral Ink. I cut the image out using my Hippo & Friends Dies. I stamped the trio peach image from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink, sponged with Calypso Coral Ink, on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the peach trio out using my Peach Dies. I cut 2 of the leaf dies from the Peach Dies out of a panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock. I adhered the leaves to the back of 2 of the die cut peaches using a Glue Dot then adhered them to the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink. I adhered the sentiment to a Calypso Coral mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Mango Melody Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the card front.
On the inside I stamped the stem/leaf image from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the top of a Basic White panel. I stamped the peach trio image from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink, sponged with Calypso Coral Ink, on the stems. I stamped the sentiments from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the Basic White panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Balmy Blue card base using Stampin’ Seal. I added a couple Mango Melody Artistry Blooms Adhesive- Backed Sequins to the Basic White panel.
To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large peach image from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink, sponged with Calypso Coral Ink, on the envelope front. I stamped the stem/leaves in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the peach. I adhered a panel of You’re A Peach DSP to the envelope flap.
