I LOVE the new Stampin’ Up! Peach Suite! Peaches smell so good and they are delicious to eat. The DSP in this suite is indeed sweet. It looks “delicious” so I wanted to make the stamped peaches look delicious too. I used the new In-Color – Pale Papaya along with Flirty Flamingo to achieve the “real” peach look.
It involves a technique called “Rock-n-Roll”. Please don’t Google it though, as it is MUCH more than a stamping technique. I was shocked and embarrassed to see what came up instead of stamping techniques. If you really want to look it up, then I highly recommend adding “stamping technique” to your search.
Because my name is Robin, I decided for the purpose of my video, to call it the Rockin’ Robin technique. You won’t be able to Google it, but at least you won’t end up seeing things that will embarrass you. 😉
Well, aside from the technique name, you will love learning how easy it is to make these watercolor-type stamps look even more realistic using 2 ink colors. I even used the technique on the leaves as well. For the leaves, I used Soft Seafoam and Pear Pizzazz.
I used 2 papers from the Peach DSP as well as Balmy Blue and Old Olive. Here are the dimensions: polka dot DSP – 5 1/2 x 4 1/4. Balmy Blue – 5 1/8 x 3 7/8. Old Olive – 4 3/4 x 3 1/2. Peach print DSP – 4 5/8 x 3 3/8 . I stamped the peaches and the stems separately then used a combination of liquid glue and dimensionals to adhere them to the card.
The sentiment if from the Sweet as a Peach stamp set and the white from is from the new Scallop Contour Dies. The sentiment is stamped in Pear Pizzazz.
To watch the “Rockin’ Robin” technique (without having to Google the other one), you can watch my quick demo on my You Tube channel. Here.
