Good Monday morning! I hope you had a great weekend. I had a fun time Saturday stamping all day with my monthly card classes. In face, this is one of the designs my stampers made in class. They all loved it and thought it was super sweet (pun intended) Lol!
When I first saw the Pop of Paradise stamp set in the new 2016-17 Annual Catalog I just fell in love with it. This pineapple is one of the adorable images included with this set. I’ve been on a trio image kick recently as well as this trio of yummy new 2016-18 In Colors makes for a perfect combination. They are Sweet Sugarplum, Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo which so remind me of sherbet. They make me to yummmmm. Lol!
BASE: This layout lent itself to another of my current favorites….the “Long and Narrow” card size (my go to is 3-1/4″ x 5-1/2″). Old Olive perfectly sets off these three yummy colors. To make the pineapple trio pop even more I added a slightly smaller double layer of Old Old and Textured Old Olive (vintage), which I popped with Dimensionals to add that all important height. Lol!
FOCAL IMAGES: Yes, it’s the pineapples of course. I used markers to color the images, which gives a slight variegated look that I love. [TIP: After coloring an image with markers make sure to huff on the image to remoisten before stamping.] Each pineapple was layered with it’s coordinating cardstock color which helps to make them pop even more. Yes, these were popped with Dimensionals as well. Hello…..it needed “more height”. Lol!
SENTIMENT: I wanted to keep this sentiment simple so I went with just “hello” from the new Thoughtful Banners stamp set. This stamp set is to full of words and several small images along with a coordinating punch. Woohoo! I stamped onto Whisper White with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and hand cut. Okay, I did pop this as well. But it’s looks perfect, do you think?
