Hi all! Thanks for stopping by. I saw a challenge on Lucy's blog this week. I immediately wanted to use my new fruity stamps. As I was making them I was chewing some fruity gum and decided that these cards were just as sweet and tasty as my treat. ;-)
Here is a peek at the set I made. I used a variety of products. The background polka dot is the Hero Arts cling stamp called Cling Dots. (CG139) The fruity stamps are a set by Stampendous called Little Fruit. (SSC096)
The cards are actually a little smaller than I normally make. I had some small envelopes I wanted to use, so each card is made from a 5" X 7" piece of card stock. The first step was to choose my colors and cut the pieces to size. I was able to use several pieces of card stock that were scraps. ( I love that!)
Then I stamped the background stamp with Versa Mark ink and used clear Zing embossing powder.
Next I cut 1 and 1/2" circles from white card stock with my Silhouette. I like having shapes and pieces on hand that I can stamp, or color on hand. I stamped the fruit with black Momento ink and then colored it with my Copic markers.
I used a new patterned paper by American Crafts from their Margarita line. It's called Mariachi. It's the fun colorful stripe you see in a 1" strip. Then I added a piece of decorative tape from Pink Paisley. It is the white with black dots. I love all the fun dots and stripes. They add so much fun.
I stamped the greeting in leftover white card stock and cut the small strips. Then I adhered it all together. I pop dotted the white circles on for some dimension.
I think this green one is my favorite. :-)
Although this little bug is cute too.
Here is the whole set again. All lined up they are so fun and colorful. I hope someone special I have planned to give this to will enjoy them. I am thinking of making a matching notepad just like the last set I made. I found some cheap notepads on clearance today. Target was clearing out the back to school items. :-)
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my latest creation.
