Pop of Pineapple

It is mid-July and it is definitely time for bright sunshiney fruit cards! So here we go with one of the cards I made for a recent swap. I had not played with the Pineapple background stamp much yet and really felt the need to ink it up! So much so that I made a video for this card. Hopefully you enjoy yhe video :)

I am still fine-tuning my video making abilities, and I hope that they are getting better! At least they are getting shorter :) Please leave me some feedback, click like, and subscribe to see more papercrafting videos from me!

 I am in love with pineapples right now. I am not kidding when I say that, between my hubby and I, we go through three fresh pineapples a week right now! I have gotten really good at waiting until they are so ripe, they actually have a coconut flavored undertone. YUM!!! I am going to go have a few bites of pineapple right now while I type this up :)

You will see in the video that I have cut my image into two parts so I can ink them separately.
  1. There is a watercolor wash as the background of this card front, done in Peekaboo Peach. 
  2. Then the pineapple is inked up with Crushed Curry and thumped with a Soft Suede marker, stamped off once, spritzed with water, then stamped onto the watercolor panel. Then the same process is repeated for the top of the pineapple in Wild Wasabi and accented with Emerald Envy. Do the same on the right side of a 4"x5¼" panel of Whisper White as the card liner.
  3. Apply Clear Wink of Stella all over the pineapple.
  4. Stamp the thank you banner from Pop of Paradise in Archival Black ink on a scrap of Whisper White, then die cut with the Paradise Pop die from Dies by Dave
  5. Apply dimensionals to the back of the banner, create a nest of gold thread, and stick to the back of the banner. Adhere to the cardfront over the middle of the pineapple.  
  6. Stitch around the edge of the watercolor panel.
  7. Trim 4" square coasters to fit the back of the panel, adhere to card front. Adhere card liner to the inside. All done!
 You can see the little bit of dimension the coasters give to the card front, and the lovely little banner!
I used a fun die set from Dies by Dave to cut out this banner, and there are so many great dies in this set, you are really going to want them yourself :)

Even on Whisper White the stamping off looks great! This technique gives the image more dimension.
