I know it is now Fall (it was 30 degrees when I got up this morning!!) and Christmas is coming but I decided to make a fun summery card. Sometimes I get so caught up in the new catalog that I forget there is still the Annual Catalog out there with wonderful products. I decided I hadn’t used the You’re A Peach Suite lately so I took it out. This suite includes the stamp set called Sweet As A Peach, the coordinating Peach Dies, You’re a Peach Designer Series Paper (I didn’t use this on the card today) and the Mini Jam Jars. It was the first suite I bought out of the Annual Catalog because I loved it the minute I saw it.
The fun thing about this card is it is a fun fold card. I don’t know the name of it but it doesn’t really matter. Here is what it looks like when you lift up the front of the card.
This is what it looks like when you open the left triangle section.
To make this card I first cut an A2 (8.5″ x 5.5″) card base in Basic White card stock and folded it in half. Then I placed it in my Paper Trimmer and cut from the score line to one corner. I cut a piece of 4″ x 5.25 piece of the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper and then cut that in half from corner to corner. I adhered one of the pieces to the front of the card base. I also cut another 4″ x 5.25″ piece of DSP and adhered that to the inside of the card base.
The folding part in the middle of the card is 8.5″ x 3.25″ and then folded in half. I decorated the front of that also using the Pansy Petals DSP. I stamped the peach using Pale Papaya ink and the stem using Granny Apple Green Ink. Then I cut those two images out using the coordinating dies from the set called Peach Dies. I stamped the sentiment in Fresh Freesia Ink onto a 2″ x 3″ piece of Basic White card stock and then onto a 2.25″ x 3.25″ piece of Fresh Freesia card stock. Then I adhered the entire piece onto the card base.
It was a pretty easy fun fold card to do and did not take a long time.
This is another card we made at our last stamp camp meeting. We used the You’re A Peach Suite that is in the Stampin’ Up!® 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. This suite includes the stamp set called Sweet As A Peach, the coordinating dies called Peach Dies (and you can save 10% if you purchase them in a bundle), You’re A Peach Designer Series Paper and Mini Jam Jars (which are adorable!).
To make this card I first stamped the leaves in Granny Apple Green ink and cut them out using the coordinating die. I stamped the peach in Pale Papaya and then used a Stampin Write Marker to add a little bit of Calypso Coral on the edges. Then I cut them out using the die set too. I added a strip of the You’re A Peach Designer Series Paper along the edge of the card and then a small strip of Balmy Blue over that. I used my Blending Brushes to add a bit of Balmy Blue to a 3.25″ x 5.5″ piece of Basic White cardstock and then layered the leaves over it. I attached the peaches using some Dimensionals. Lastly I stamped the sentiment in Balmy Blue ink.
Last week was another whirlwind of grandchildren at the cottage. This time my son, Zachary and his wife, Mary came with their two children. Emory (or Emy) is four years old and her brother Jackson is 10 months. Once again we had a great time swimming, boating and making lots of crafts. Emy and I made a couple of cards to send to her cousins too. She is a natural at it! Here is a picture of a very happy Jackson playing with a swim noodle and Movie Star Emy.

I was going to start this post as saying the You’re A Peach Suite is one of my favorites in the 2021/2022 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog but then I remembered that I probably say that about every suite in the catalog. I definitely have a lot of favorites and the peach suite is one of them.
One of the reasons I like doing the BS& J Productions Stamp Off Challenges is because Buffy, Jackie and I all have different tastes. Jackie loves funny stamps and critters. Buffy is mostly a vintage stamper and I love flowers. I can never have enough flower stamps and according to Stampin’ Up!® flowers are best sellers so I can’t be alone. The great thing about SU is they offer enough products to make us all happy.
So, after all that is said, Sweet As A Peach IS one of my favorite bundles in the new catalog! It has a set of coordinating dies called Peach Dies and has beautiful Designer Series Paper.
To make this card I first stamped the peaches using Calypso Coral ink onto Pale Papaya cardstock. I stamped the flowers and leaves on Basic White cardstock using Calypso Coral and Pear Pizzazz ink. I cut them all out using the coordinating dies. Then I cut out the centers of the flowers. I layered everything onto a piece of the new 6″ x 6″ In Color Designer Series Paper and on a Basic White card base.
So what do you think? Are flowers your favorites? Critters? Let me know in the comments!
