Paper Craft Crew

Card Sketch #196 – Peekaboo Peach Sunburst

Peekaboo Peach Sunburst card created by Pam Staples for the Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge #196. #sunburst #stampinup #pamstaplesI’m really having fun with my NEW Stampin’ Up! products purchased during the Preorder for Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators which really is an awesome PERK of being a demonstrator besides the discount.  Starting on June 1, 2016, Stampin’ Up! is offering an AWESOME special when you join Stampin’ Up! and I would LOVE to have you on my team – Sunny Craftin’ Crew!  The Sunny Craftin’ Crew is a diverse, fun group located around the world.  Why not contact me today and find out about joining.  Join during June and receive 2 FREE stamp sets of YOUR CHOICE (excludes bundles & kits) in addition to $125.00 worth of PRODUCT for ONLY $99.00 – there is NO RISK – if you don’t like it, drop whenever and KEEP the KIT.  This weeks sketch just called out to me to use the Sunburst Die along with Peekaboo Peach to create a flower.  I love the Sunburst Die and when you combine a circle with the Sunburst Die you have some fun flowers that are easy to create.  The card also uses a little bit of Designer Series Paper from the Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper.  

I love finding creative ways to use the different products offered by Stampin’ Up!  The Sunburst Die is proving to be very versatile and fun to use.  Why not give it a try!  Another great bundle is the Swirly Bird Stamp Set with coordinating Thinlet as it offers so many options for creativity.  Don’t be afraid to play and experiment with your new products!

Peekaboo Peach Sunburst Card Recipe

Peekaboo Peach Sunburst card created by Pam Staples for the Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge #196. #sunburst #stampinup #pamstaplesHere are the basics for recreating the Peekaboo Peach Sunburst Card:

  • Stamp the background card layer with the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set using the So Saffron and Watermelon Wonder Classic Inks.  Randomly stamp away!
  • Layer a 2 3/4″ x 2 3/4″ Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper centered over the stamped gorgeous grunge background card layer.  The Black design really creates POP against the pastel colors used on the remainder of the card.
  • Create the “flower” using the Sunburst Thinlet.  To create the flower, I used the Circles Collection Framelits to cut out three different sized circles.  Center each circle under the “circle” on the Sunburst Thinlit die and cut out the sunburst flowers.  I used Peekaboo Peach for my sunburst flower.
  • Punch or cut out a circle to fit in the center of the Peekaboo Peach Sunburst Flower.  I used So Saffron card stock.
  • Using the Thoughtful Banners Stamp Set, I stamped the outlined banner with So Saffron then added the Happy Birthday sentiment using the Watermelon Wonder classic ink.  The banner is punched out with the corresponding and bundled Duet Banner Punch.
  • For the added little flower, I used the small flower from the Botanical Builder Framelits.  I again used Watermelon Wonder card stock for the small flower and finished it off with a White Perfect Accent.
