SOTM Bloghop for July 2013

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Bloghop!  This month we are featuring, "Sweet Life", a set of 9 stamps.

If you've come here from Kim Schnoor's Blog, you are on the trail.  The bloghop is one big circle, so once you get started you can make your way around by clicking on the link at the bottom of each blog.  If you get lost at any point, find a complete list of the 50+ participating consultants at Kathleen Androlewicz' Blog.

I have made a versatile card using "Sweet Life".

It was easy to make. I stamped the peach image and the phrase, "You're A Peach" with Chocolate ink on White Daisy Cardstock.  Then I colored it in with markers:  The peaches with Creme Brulee, the leaves with New England Ivy, branches with Chocolate, and the center of the flower with Honey. I placed three sparkles from the Brown and Tan Assortment in the bottom, left-hand corner.  I matted the stamped image on Surf's Up Teal which is available only in the Surf's Up Paper Pack.
The paper sections in this card are all from Surf's Up.  The card is a standard 5.5 x 4.25.  So the Teal piece measures 5.25 x 1.5, the flowery Sorbet B&T piece is 5.25 x .5, and the Crystal Blue B&T piece is 5.25 x 2.25.  These are all adhered with Tombow adhesive.
On top of this layer, I adhered three Chocolate Cardstock pieces matted on Sorbet Cardstock.  The dimensions of the Chocolate Cardstock are 3 x .25. The Sorbet pieces are 3.25 x 1.
Finally, I popped the matted peach image, centered over all the layers, with 3D Foam Tape.
