Sweet as a Peach with You’re a Peach

We are a week away from the customer launch of Stampin’ Up!’s July-December 2021 Mini Catalog – along with a two-month Sale-a-Bration, the “Holiday Mini” launches next Tuesday. As such, you’ve seen a lot of exciting, new products from Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas over the past few weeks.

I’m stepping away from the holidays for just a bit to share a sweet-and-simple card I created with three separate patterns from the You’re a Peach Designer Series Paper. Here’s a look at my thank you card:

Today’s card features three patterns on two pages of the You’re a Peach Designer Series Paper. Here’s a look at the patterns and colors in this gorgeous pack of papers:

The sentiment on my card is a combination of two sentiments in the Sweet as a Peach stamp set, part of the Sweet as a Peach Bundle. Here’s a look at this incredible bundle that coordinates so perfectly with these You’re a Peach papers:

Sweet as a Peach Bundle, Stampin Up! 155823I had fun layering the You’re a Peach Designer Series Papers on my card – the Balmy Blue panel with polka dots provides a solid foundation for the Calypso Coral stripes and beautiful panel of peaches. To build the sentiment, I reached for an old standby that works for me every time – I layered the Everyday Label punch with a square of cardstock to give it a defining foundation for my patterned card front. I simple glued my sentiment cutout to a 1-1/2″ x 1-3/4″ piece of Calypso Coral before popping them both up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Here’s a closer look:

Sweet as a Peach, Stampin Up!, Brian King, thank you cardI don’t naturally reach for Balmy Blue when I can reach for Pool Party (some habits are hard to break), but I REALLY love how Balmy Blue is used in the You’re a Peach Designer Series Paper – it’s so vibrant! If you love this mix of Pear Pizzazz, Balmy Blue and Calypso Coral as much as I do, I hope you’ll save this for future reference:
