Fresh Fruit

F4A337WOW…can you believe it is Friday already?  I’m still working on it’s August already!  I will be back at school (okay I never really left) before I know it!

The Free For All challenge on SCS today is to stamp something that will ‘cool you off’ on a hot summer day.  Nothing like eating a nice cold, juicy peach on a hot summer day!

Today I have a super quick and easy card for you.  I wanted to show my stamping group how easy it was to add depth to the peach image by using a sponge dauber and adding a little extra color.  So the peach is inked with Peek-a-boo Peach then Tangerine Tango was added for depth.  The leaves are Cucumber Crush with some Emerald Envy.

This is another of those ‘don’t blink’ or you’ll miss how to do it cards.  Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded, round the bottom right corner
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, round the bottom right corner
  • Stamp peach using Peek-a-boo Peach and use a sponge dauber to add Tangerine Tango to bottom, top and along the ‘line’.  Stamp leaves using Cucumber Crush with Emerald Envy in the center of the image.
  • Stamper greeting using Momento Black
  • Tie Peek-a-boo Peach Runched Ribbon around top and add panel to card front using dimensionals.
