Yesterday Wayne said to me….”Is tomorrow Friday again? Already?” And, of course, the answer was yes!! Which means…I’ll have a sparkly clean house by the end of the day. Whooo-hoooo!! Do y’all have something fun planned for your weekend? We….don’t, really. Might hit the Farmer’s Market. Maybe Lowe’s to pick up a couple three half-whiskey barrels to make a water feature for the garden. Places we can take Finn, so….he’ll like that if we end up doing those things.
We’re not mentioning it to him – JIC we don’t get it done. Expectation management is huge with Aussies. 😉
So…if you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live – I appreciate you spending part of your day with me. If not, but you’d like to watch the replay – here’s the link!
This card is all about the peaches! Sweet as a Peach – the entire bundle – and the You’re a Peach DSP! And – one of my favorite new products – the Macrame 3D Embossing Folder. Take a look-see:
The layout for this one is from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
And I picked the peaches thanks to The Paper Players theme challenge.
I started with a beautifully flowered piece of You’re A Peach DSP that I matted on Early Espresso for the card front.
Next, I embossed four strips of Basic White in the Macrame 3D Embossing Folder. These are popped onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals – spaced equally across the panel.
I cut a Paper Lattice embellishment in half – roughly – and trimmed the edge. Then I adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.
I stamped the leaves image from Sweet as a Peach in Pear Pizzazz – using my Blending Brush to add a little Garden Green to the edges to give them a little more texture and depth. I stamped three peaches and three flowers – inking the stamp first in Pale Papaya. Then, using a Blending Brush, I added some Calypso Coral to the edges. I cut all the stamped images with their matching dies in the bundled Peach Die Set
I adhered the leaves with Liquid Glue and then added the flowers and peaches – most of those are popped on with Stampin’ Dimensionals – but a couple are adhered with Liquid Glue.
For the sentiment, I inked the large peach from the Sweet as a Peach set in Pale Papaya, adding Calypso Coral with the Blending Brush. I inked the leaf image in Pear Pizzazz and Garden Green – and cut them with their matching dies.
I adhered the leaf to the top of the peach with a dab of Liquid Glue. Then I stamped the sentiment onto the peach in Early Espresso.
Finally – I stamped the second sentiment from Sweet as a Peach in Calypso Coral and cut with the label die in the Peach Die set.
I tied a little bow from Linen Thread and added it to the top of the sentiment peach with Liquid Glue. Then I added the little die cut sentiment with a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I added some Pale Papaya gems from the 2021-2023 In Color Jewels and the card front was done!
On the inside, I added a third Sweet as a Peach sentiment in Early Espresso to a Basic White panel. Then I stamped the large peach image over the top – coloring it the same as I’d done on the front.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Early Espresso mat and into my Pale Papaya card base – popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Basic White Medium Envelope got the large Sweet as a Peach peach on the front…
…and more of the pretty You’re A Peach DSP on the envelope flap!
Et Voila! Summer peaches are just part of the landscape here in GA – and in many parts of the country! And the Sweet as a Peach stamp set – with the matching Peach Dies – lets you create a whole bushel of gorgeous, juicy gems lickety-split! The coordinating You’re a Peach DSP is….simply stunning! Have I mentioned how much I love the Macrame 3D Embossing Folder!? Uhm..a LOT!
I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix
The other night I finished cleaning up the kitchen (it might have been a little later than “usual”), picked up Finn’s two little night-bones and….looked for the Man.
So…I headed to the back of the house.
Lookee what I found.
I had to push the door open with my nose, Mom! Sheesh. Would somebody PLEASE put the dog to bed?!?
