Welcome everyone! Today I’m having a little fun over on the Pink & Main blog today with some royal fruit! I have always loved the sentiment to be a like a pineapple and always wear a crown. It’s fun and reminds us to have confidence and be proud of who we are. Well, the new Pink & Main set called Sweet Friend is a fabulous new set with a couple of gorgeous pineapples and the coordinating stamps to color them in. This isn’t my typical style but it was so fun!
I decided to go with a circular card shape today because sometimes it’s just fun to be different! I chose the 4.25 inch circle and cut one from a melon cardstock and another to create a white card base. I used the EZ Squeeze liquid adhesive to adhere them together. Then I cut another circle from teal cardstock that is 2 sizes down from that and inked it up with the pyramids stencil and a darker teal ink. Such a fun texture behind the pineapples!
I popped this circle up with foam tape and moved on to stamping my pineapples. For those, I stamped 3 outlines and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I took the negative that was left over from die cutting and put it in my MISTI. I lined up the first fill-in stamp and picked it up with the lid, then I just inserted the die cut into the hole and stamped my colored ink, one at a time. It’s like an assembly line. It worked perfectly and I just breezed through stamping all of my pineapples.
I used liquid adhesive to adhere the two back pineapples and foam tape to adhere the middle one. Then I stamped my favorite sentiment from the set in a melon ink to coordinate with my base circle and die cut it with a large sentiment strip. I popped this up with foam tape and my card is all finished.
