Perfect Peachy Notes Sneak Peek

Posted on

Ahh yes, the weekend! Everyones favorite time of the week, well, at least my favorite! Work again was pretty calm yesterday and I’m sure that will change come next week. It was really cold here again, I’m over that! In less than two weeks I’ll be in Houston for Leadership! It really has come quickly but I’m really excited to go, it’s going to be a good time! 🙂

My card for today has a bit of a funny story behind it. A friend of mine, Emily, had said that she liked the Mr. & Mrs. card that I had done for last week’s Pals Paper Arts but wasn’t sold on the Stamp Set because of the “bathroom” couple. I had to think for a minute and then I realized that she meant the stamp I have used on my card today. She said that if I could show her a card that makes them not look like “bathroom” people she would like the Stamp Set better. So here is what I have come up with…

The base of my card is Pool Party Card Stock and I used a piece of So Saffron for the background. A strip of paper from the I Am Me Designer Series Paper Pack goes down the left side. My main image is from the Perfect Couple Stamp Set* and is stamped in Basic Gray on Pool Party and the mini heart is punched out with the Owl Builder Punch. The frame around it is created using the Squares Collection Framelits Dies and the Oh Snap! is form the Hip Notes Stamp Set* and is stamped in Real Red. I adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The hearts are punched out from Real Red with the Small Heart Punch. I used the Peachy Keen Stamp Set* to stamp the arrows along the bottom and they are cut out with the On Film Framelits Dies*. I also cut out a piece of Silver Foil Sheet with them for the camera. All of the elements are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals and some silver sequins complete the card. So, what do you think? Do they still look like “bathroom” people? I don’t think they do at all! I hope you enjoyed today’s card and thank you, as always, for stopping by! Enjoy your Saturday! 🙂

  1. Oh Snap! Oh Yeah! I didn’t see ‘bathroom people’ when I first saw this set. But I can see it now. It is a funny story. You did a nice job with the card. Hope your friend can see a different version of the couple now. All the elements work so well together. The camera is great in the silver foil and the sequins…….bling bling. Have a great one Justin.

    • Thank you Lisa! I didn’t see them either, they are quite trendy now. I hope she sees them differently too! Love the camera in the foil, it embosses them nicely and you need some sequins! LOL! Have a wonderful day! 🙂

  2. You have to tell Emily that several of us didn’t see the “bathroom people” in that stamp set until we came to your blog! LOL I have to agree with Emily though, they are dang close to the bathroom people I see in almost all public buildings. However, thanks to you Justin, I can see where they can make a pretty cute couple. Great job and we can’t wait to see photos from Houston when you get back!

    • Thank you Grace! I will! Well, now that it’s out there, yes, they look a little like them! I’m glad you see them as the cute couple now! Have a super day! 🙂

  3. Hi there Justin! Such a cute card and you how I feel about the sequins! So cute! In fact, I sent in another order this morning and ordered the bathroom couple! I didn’t see that before you mentioned it, but they do resemble the signs on the doors. I absolutely love that camera too! So jealous of your trip to Leadership…I hope you’ll share your presentation with those us who can’t make it. Enjoy your weekend!!!

    • Hello Karen!
      Yes, you and I both feel the same way about sequins! Yeah for the bathroom couple! LOL! The camera is great, it’s an embellishment all on it’s own! My presentation will be a webinar sometime in February! Enjoy your weekend too! 🙂

  4. How funny ! Yes, I see those bathroom signs now ! I think it`s kinda cute ….you have to admit it`s a new look in cards …wonder what`s next ? Really cute card even if they do look a little “Flushed” Giggle !!

  5. OMG, Emily! Is that a unisex bathroom? I never saw it until now, but I still want that set. Good job once again, Justin. I hope you are enjoying the weekend! I’ll be in Columbus, Ohio, for a convention on plant goods in a couple of weeks. I can’t wait to see what you report back to us from Houston — Leadership — wow! You deserve it! Nancy B

    • LOL! They have unisex bathrooms in Manhattan actually! Thanks! I am having a quiet weekend. Lot’s to do before Leadership! I appreciate it! Enjoy your trip! 🙂

  6. I immediately thought the same as Emily, they resemble the public washroom symbols, but they are cute, nice card today!

  7. Could you please help me subscribe to your blog…apparently I am already signed up with Bloglovin and since I don’t know my password, I am unable to proceed using my e-mail address.  Thanks for any help you can give me!
