Sweet as a Peach Trio

Greeting Cards & Treat Holder created with Stampin' Up's Sweet as a Peach Bundle. #Stampin' Gala, #Julie Gilson, #Birthday, #Handmade Cards, #3d

It was so fun creating projects with all new products tonight for my Facebook Live presentation.  If you missed it, you can watch the replay here.  

I used the Sweet as a Peach Bundle for all three projects.  This bundle can be found on page 61 of the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.

As always, I create two cards and one 3D item.  

First, I created a birthday card.  I used Calypso Coral and Pear Pizzazz for the color combination.

You’re a Peach, Designer Series Paper has beautiful patterns and coordinates with the bundle.

The second card uses a new die from the Basic Border collection.   I am sure that is set will get plenty of use!!

Simply Succulents – Makeover Monday

Welcome to Makeover Monday (a couple of days late!)

 

Thank you card created with Stampin' Up's Simple Succulents stamp set for Makeover Monday.  #Stampin' Gala, #Julie Gilson, Stampin' Blends Markers, #Handmade  cards

Today’s card is a “stepped up” version of Sunday’s Simple Sunday card.  

Thank you card created with Stampin' Up's Simple Succulents stamp set for Makeover Monday.  #Stampin' Gala, #Julie Gilson, Stampin' Blends Markers, #Handmade  cards

To step it up, I added several elements.  Immediately, you will notice the sentiment that I placed on a die cut in the center of the card.  I also added a few extra succulents as well as some stamping in the background.  The stamp I used for the background is the “speckled” stamp from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set.  I used Sahara Sand ink and stamped off first.  

One other addition to this card is a piece of Sahara Sand DSP in the background.  It can be found in the Neutrals 6 X 6 DSP pack.  It will be retiring in just a few days.
