You’re A Peach is one of my favorite suites in the Stampin’ Up!® 2021/2022 Annual Catalog. It was definitely on my first order. The suite includes the stamp set called Sweet As A Peach, the coordinating dies called Peach Dies (and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a bundle), You’re A Peach Designer Series Paper and these adorable Mini Jam Jars.
I love peaches although I don’t get them very often. The grocery store peaches just aren’t that good. They are hard as rock and lack flavor. When we moved to Tennessee my daughter in law told me about the Peach Truck. It comes to Tennessee when the peaches are ripe in Georgia. A couple of days before we left for the cottage, Rob saw an ad for the Peach Truck and it was going to be near our house the next day. I had to go get some of the peaches and I have to say, they did not disappoint. They were the best peaches I ever had. Of course, Jackie and Buffy make me so jealous because they both grow peaches (well Buffy’s mom grows them) but the Peach Truck makes up for it. They were delicious! One thing the peach lady told me is to store the peaches in a brown paper bag until they are soft enough to eat. Perhaps I need to try that with a grocer store peach, although I know it still will not be as good and the fresh ones on the Peach Truck.
To make this card I first stamped the peaches from Sweet As A Peach using Pale Papaya ink while rolling the edges in Calypso Coral. That technique is called Rock “n Roll. Then I stamped them on Pale Papaya cardstock and cut them out using the coordinating Peach Dies. Then I stamped the leaves in Shade Spruce ink and cut them out using the dies too. I layered them on a piece of the Beauty Of The Earth Designer Series Paper that looks like a sky. I added the tiny little Calypso Coral flowers and then stamped the sentiments in Shade Spruce and Calypso Coral in. I cut them out using a Tasteful Labels die.

Wonderful card Susan. I love the cascade of pretty peaches. Yes, people get excited by the peach truck here, too. I am blessed to have my own.
These are gorgeous, Susan (and look really yummy. Sad that they’re paper and ink.). I love the branch full of peaches against the “sky.” Glad you got some fresh peaches!!
