I’m a Georgia boy – and we are known for our peaches and peanuts. I love both. For this week’s food-themed challenge at the Global Design Project, I reached for a new set – Glamper Camper – to create a sweet card around a teeny-tiny peach pie. Peach pie and a proper thank you – it doesn’t get more Southern than that, does it? Here’s my 3-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ card:
- Peach Pie. Where did I get this itty bitty pie? It’s found in a new photopolymer stamp set in Stampin’ Up!’s 2016 Holiday Catalog. It’s certainly not a focal image in the set – the set has 32 stamps. All of the images center around an adorable camper – with all the “fixins” for lots of holidays and seasons. You can click on this image to see this set in my online store:
The little pie certainly adorable and looks great cradled between the “h” and the “k” in this sentiment of thanks. Just as cute as can be. The font of the sentiment reminds me of an old fashioned ice cream parlor, so the pie is a perfect fit. Don’t you agree?
- Peach stripes. I get it – a peach pie is peachy on the inside, not the outside. Still, the colors look so wonderful together – and did you question my choice before I let you in on my intentional mistake? That little pie top just needed to be colored with Peekaboo Peach ink and a Blender Pen. The striped paper on the background of this card is from Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper (also Peekaboo Peach). Without ever showing a peach on this card, it certainly has a peachy feel.
- Peachy Combinations. Peach pie has a very peaches-and-cream look to it. Creams and soft peach colors inspired this color combination. Let’s be honest – everything looks great with Crumb Cake – but Peekaboo Peach looks best with Crumb Cake. It really softens the tones in this 2016-2018 In Color. If you like this combination of colors, too, feel free to save this:
Stamp Sets: Me=Grateful, Glamper Camper Papers: Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper, Crumb Cake, Peekaboo Peach, Whisper White Inks: Archival Basic Black, Peekaboo Peach, Crumb Cake Accessories: 2″ Circle punch, Layering Circles Framelits, Perfect White Accents, Stampin’ Dimensionals
I hope you’ll pop over to the Global Design Project site to see the cards by the design team members and to play along with this week’s challenge.
