Pineapple Hello Note Card

I splurged recently and bought the die that coordinated with the pineapple stamp set (gifted to me by Offspring3 last fall).

I stamped the greenery on green cardstock, and cut it out using the pineapple die. Then, I put yellow cardstock into the Provo Craft Textile embossing folder and embossed it. I rubbed tan ink over the raised areas, and cut it using the pineapple die. I guesstimated where the fruit/foliage line would be, and cut with scissors.

Supplies: Stamps – Hero Arts, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party, inks – Stampin’ Up! Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, VersaFine Vintage Sepia, dies – Hero Arts (pineapple), My Favorite Things (pierced rectangle), embossing folder – Provo Craft, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.

Floral Photo Note Card

I have to admit, I am running behind this week.

The kitchen renovation is almost done (waiting for countertop to be installed, then on to backsplash), we have no workers in the house this week. (Note to self: scrub floor while they are out!)

I have a bunch of medical appointments over the next 10 days (kidney stone made me schedule every “annual exam” that I had been avoiding!).

So, I am flying by the seat of my pants, card wise. I pulled out my floral scrap folder, and found 3 flowers and a piece of foliage. The sentiment and frame were in other scrap folders. I mounted the 3 flowers at different levels (back coral is flat, yellow is on glue dots, front coral is attached to back of frame, frame is mounted with foam adhesive), so it has a very nice shadowbox effect in person.

Have a good Wednesday!

Supplies: Stamps – Stampin’ Up!, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – My Favorite Things (pierced rectangle), Stampin’ Up!
