The card I have to show you today might just make you hungry 🙂 It features the retiring stamp set- Apple of My Eye from the 2016 Occasions catalogue!
How To Make It:
Let’s start by making our fruit. Stamp your lemon using Daffodil Delight then punch out with 1 ¾” circle punch. Stamp thank you inside the lemon using Crumb Cake ink.
Next, using the peach, stamp into Calypso Coral and stamp off on scrap paper then rock the stamp in the ink again just inking the outer edges and stamp off again on scrap paper then onto your white cardstock. You want a light blotchy and peachy feel. Peaches aren’t perfect and you are stamping a sentiment on top so you don’t want it too dark! Then fussy cut it out.
Ink up the sentiment in Crumb Cake and stamp it on top of your peach. You’re going to do the same “rock and roll technique” with the pear but with two colors. Stamp the pear in Pear Pizzazz ink first and stamp off on scrap paper, then rock the stamp in Wild Wasabi ink just inking the edges and stamp off on scrap paper and then stamp onto Whisper White cardstock. Fussy cut the pear.
Use Cherry Cobbler for the cherries but stamp off once one scrap paper first. Punch out with ½” circle punch. Stamp cherry, peach and pear stems using Soft Suede ink and fussy cut. Stamp all leaves using Pear Pizzazz ink and fussy cut.
Adhere all stems and leaves as shown using your favorite adhesive. I used the 2 Way Glue Pen (also retiring!!)
To make the background put the Stripes Decorative Mask on the white cardstock at an angle and use the Sponge Dauber and Calypso Coral ink pad. Dab the dauber in the ink and dab off on scrap paper first before putting it to the white cardstock for a softer look. Don’t fully cover the white cardstock with sponging.
Next, take that piece and attach it to the front of your card base with SNAIL Adhesive.
Then you want to add your fruit to the front of your card. The pear and pear are attached with snail and the cherries and lemon are attached with dimensionals.
Lastly, add a few Rhinestones for the finishing touch!
