Just Peachy!

It seems my weekend was all about food…a crab fest, cupcakes, and peaches! Yesterday my daughter and I went to the annual Peach Festival in town. There’s nothing like fresh fruit when it’s in season…sweet and delicious!

Today’s card is just peachy! I made it for a friend who could use a little pick me up.  I thought I’d drop it off with some fresh peaches to brighten her day.

The DSP is from a Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper and it’s just as sweet as those peaches!

DSP Whole Lot of Lovely

This is another one of those “formula” cards that’s quick & easy to put together. I cut my card base 4 1/4 x 11 and scored it at 5 1/2. The DSP layer measures 3 1/2 x 5 with a mat that’s just 1/8 larger at 3 5/8 x 5 1/8. I like the way the ribbon looks like it is “hugging” the card. (At least that’s what I imagined and wanted to convey!) The sentiment is cut from the Lovely Words Thinlits Dies.  I have used the dies in this set a lot and find they are very versatile. I love that I can snip them out (like I did on this card) or just die cut the shape and layer it with paper behind it.

My card wouldn’t be complete without an envelope to coordinate.

I goes great with the basket of peaches.  You can really see how realistic the Designer Series Paper looks!

I also needed a thank you card so while I had my paper out I just cut for two! (I do that a lot!)  I changed it up a bit and used Peekaboo Peach cardstock and ribbon instead of Tranquil Tide.  I also used the Stitched Shapes Framelits and Layering Squares Framelits to layer the sentiment.

I’m glad I came home with a lot of peaches yesterday because I seem to be giving them away faster than I can make peach cobbler! Here’s both cards side by side. Do you have a preference?

Stamp Set: So Many Shells (sentiment) Papers: Pool Party, Tranquil Tide, Peekaboo Peach, Whisper White  Ink: Peekaboo Peach  Tools & Accessories: Lovely Words Thinlits Dies, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Layering Squares Framelits,  1/2″ Tranquil Tide Finely Woven Ribbon, 3/8″ Peekaboo Peach Ruched Ribbon (retired)

One Big Meaning for Tic Tac Toe Challenge #9

Stampin Up Thank You card using One Big Meaning Stamp Set, Layering CIrcles Framelits, and Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper. For inspiration and supplies visit www.juststampin.com

tic tac toe

I knew once I got back home there would be so much to catch up on.  Needless to say I am late posting for this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge. Here’s this week’s challenge board.

 No automatic alt text available.

I decided to go down the far right row: all things round, stacked sentiment, and plants. My card is a simple thank you card but could be used for any occasion. There’s a sneak peek for you too…the new Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper which will be available in the holiday catalog next month!

This simple card is one of those layouts you could use again and again and it would look different each time by just changing the DSP, coordinating colors, and sentiment. I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits and Layering Circles Framelits but you could use squares, ovals, etc. I’m loving the Lemon Lime Twist with Garden Green.  I didn’t think I was going to like this color at all and I keep finding color combinations that look great with it! I guess the lesson here is never prejudge! Check back tomorrow for a color chart to use with the new In Colors!

How beautiful is this Painted Autumn DSP?! The other patterns are just as wonderful! My holiday preorder came yesterday and I couldn’t wait to see all the new paper!  I love DSP!  I will have more sneak peeks for you throughout the month. If you’ve ordered from me in the last 6 months your catalog will be arriving later this month.  I had them shipped directly from Stampin’ Up! so you will get to see all the new goodies soon!

My ABC Fun Folds from P-T

This past week has been a series of unfortunate events from my computer crashing to a trip to the ER with a head injury. On the upside, I am happy to report my new computer should be up and running later today and I am lucky to have a “thick skull”! I apologize for not posting the last of the fun folds yet; however, I hope to be back later today with a new fun fold card to share. Until then here’s some more of the fun fold designs I did in my ABC series. I have already received some cards in the mail for the fun fold card swap and let me say my first thought has been, “I wish I could keep these!” There is still time to participate so I hope you will create a fun fold card and get it in the mail this week. Click HERE for all the details. If you have never made a fun fold card before you need to give it a try! They are a lot easier than they look! I include simple step by step directions for each one.  If you have any questions feel free to email me.  I am really looking forward to seeing what you create and showcasing your fun fold cards.

You can click on any image below to go to the original post for directions, etc. You can easily substitute current DSP or other stamp sets to recreate. Enjoy!

Next week will be my 1 year anniversary for this blog! I can not tell you how much I have enjoyed sharing and interacting with you.  Your comments have made my day on many occasions! This is not something I ever imagined I would be doing and I thank my daughter for her intuition in knowing me better than I know myself!

Have a wonderful day!
