Sweet as a Peach for Baby

I knew I’d find many reasons to play with the You’re a Peach Suite when it was released – maybe that’s why I selected this Georgia-friendly suite as My Favorite Suite in Stampin’ Up!’s 2021 Annual Catalog. Here’s a sweet baby card that’s (obviously) made to welcome an adorable Georgia baby:

Here’s the banner for the challenge that inspired my card:

Tips, Tricks and Reminders

  • New Bundles. My card showcases elements from two new bundles in Stampin’ Up!’s 2021 Annual Catalog – All for Baby and Sweet as a Peach. The onesies are all cropped with the Baby Clothes Dies (the name, alone, tells you how adorable the images in the dies are), which is part of the All for Baby Bundle. Onsies, jumpers, bibs, tiny hangers and clothes pins – how can you not love this variety of sweet baby clothes. Here’s a look at the All for Baby Bundle: All for Baby Bundle, Stampin Up! 158360The sentiment on my card is pulled from the Sweet as a Peach stamp set, which is part of the Sweet as a Peach Bundle.

  • Peachy. The tiny peaches that adorn the baby onesies are cropped from the You’re a Peach Designer Series Paper. The second page in the photo below is filled with tiny, little peaches that yearn to be added to a baby’s onesie.

While these dies are designed for a fun peekaboo panel on a card, the popped out circles are perfect to use (and pair nicely with the Layering Circles Dies).

  • Simple CASE. The simple layout on my baby card is a CASE of another baby card I shared in May of 2019. Instead of peachy onesies, that card featured precious baby feet along the right side of the card. By changing the elements and colors, I recreated this card to make it new again.

    Good morning, Brian!
    What a precious baby card! Our son was born in Decatur, GA back in 1973! We still remember a car dealer’s tag line “And hey, we’re in Decatur!” I had to order the Sweet as a Peach Suite right away! You really “hit it out of the park” using these stamp sets and dies! I love the idea of the Picture This dies as well. Thank you so much, Brian!

    • Oh, yay! I’m so happy you like it, Suzie! I was bemoaning the fact that all the peaches were too big for a onesie until I saw these tiny peaches in the paper. So fun! I’m a stone’s throw from Decatur. ♥

  2. Oh My Goodness…Brian this is the sweetest card ever! How could you not save this card forever after receiving it! Pure fun!
