Peachy Keen Fruit

Well, I think it is supposed to be summer, but all we are seeing these days in Connecticut is rain! and cool temperatures. When I think of summer I think of fresh fruit, so when I saw this set from Peachy Keen Stamps I knew I needed to add it to my collection! Besides, their stamps are so fun to color! I also saw this great video tutorial on Stamp TV on using your nesties for embossing circles, and realized I do not make the most use of all the nesties I have so I thought I would try that technique out on a simple set of note cards with a fruit theme.


I created a note card set holder using a tutorial and template I found on Alma's site. I decided to use some soon to be retired paper from Stampin Up as well. It has a perfect Cherry Theme!

Here is sample of one the cards. I colored each of the fruit with Copics, then used nesties to emboss around the image. I left the card very very simple!

Here is a mosaic I made with close ups of all the fruit in the set. I have not used copics much, and these fruit are great images to practice coloring with!

This is how I spent my Saturday! That and grocery shopping, off to clean and organize my out of control craft space!!

Wow, Lauri! This is a gorgeous set of cards!! I just found Peachy Keen's website, and I can't wait to get some of their stamps. I was instantly drawn to the adorable little faces on their stamps, and was pleasantly surprised when I discovered that I've been tole painting from Kathy's books for years!! What a small world!!
