You’re So Sweet for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop



You’re So Sweet from Stampin’ Up! is my stamp selection for this week’s Happy Stampers Blog Hop sketch challenge.  


July 7 - 2016


I love fresh peaches!  This year’s crop in Georgia has not disappointed and they certainly have been so sweet!  So, when I decided to use this Fruit Stand DSP, I knew I needed to add something about sweetness.  
You're So Sweet


For the sentiment, I chose a stamp from the You’re So Sweet stamp set, but I only used part of the stamp.  Because I only wanted only the part of the sentiment that says You’re So Sweet, I placed tape over the parts I did not want, inked the stamp, took off the tape, then stamped the image onto a panel of Whisper White.  Then, I used my Decorative Label Punch to punch it out.  I also punched out a label in Pear Pizzaz to use as a frame for my stamped one.  



You're So Sweet



The panel of Fruit Stand DSP is adhered to a panel of Peekaboo Peach with multipurpose glue, then I added a Delicate White Doily to the right side of the panel with more glue, before popping the panel onto the Pear Pizzaz card base with dimensionals.  I used my Scalloped Tag Topper punch to create a longer label in the Peekaboo Peach striped In Color DSP and created a bow with a length of Peekaboo Peach 3/8″ Ruched Ribbon



You're So Sweet


For the inside, I chose the sentiment from One Big Meaning and stamped it in Pekaboo Peach ink onto the Whisper White panel.  I fussy cut a peach from the Fruit Stand DSP, and adhered it to the bottom right corner with multipurpose glue.
