So, I finally was able to have some fun with the new Fruit Basket stamp set and coordinating Fruit Punches. I was eager to make some pink pineapple cards for sure!
I started with watercolor paper, my aqua painter and a melon mambo ink pad. I wanted a splash of water color wash in pink for my background. So, I used the ink in the "lid" of the melon mambo ink pad and painted it onto my watercolor paper with an aqua painter. ( close your ink pad and squeeze the lid of the inkpad so that the ink deposits onto the lid inside)
I randomly painted some ink onto the paper.
I then flicked the barrel of my aqua painter to splatter water/ink onto the watercolor paper.
I let it dry, and then it was time to decorate!
The 3/4" circle punch was used to make the basic black circles which I adhered the melon mambo and lemon lime twist pineapples onto with mini dimensionals.
I decorated the card with the new Tutti Fruitti sequins, which by the way, are self adhering! I also added a rhinestone to the middle of each sequin.
The black and white dotted paper is from the Tutti Frutti designer paper pack and the ribbon is lemon time twist. I thought it would be cool to stamp the greeting directly on the ribbon in black archival ink.
Of course I had to stamp some cute pineapples on the inside of the card as well.
Making this "Pink Pineapple" card made me so happy. I didn't stop there, though, I have more Fruit Baskets to share this week as well. So be sure to check in later.
Until the next time...
Keep on Stampin' and Come back again soon!
