Hungry for some fruit?

Doesn't this card make you hungry?  I typically do not do the fruit stamp sets, but this one called out to me for some reason.  Giving you fair warning...the fruit are small and a little putzy.  But oh so adorable.  

One thing I like about the stamp set, is that the stamp is slightly larger than the punch.  This makes it easier to line up and not having to worry about the white space around the image. I would totally recommend just taking the time and stamping a bunch of all the fruit. Stamp more than you will need.   It's so much easier to have extras then to have restamp the fruit.  My extra fruit pieces are stored in a tiny ziploc bag and with the stamps.  Keeps everything simple.

There are a ton of colors going on in this card.  Here is what I used for the fruit:

  • Strawberry - Real Red and Garden Green
  • Watermelon - Watermelon Wonder and Pear Pizzazz
  • Pineapple - Crushed Curry and Wild Wasabi
  • Pear - Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede

Very typical I know.   For the basket, the outline is Soft Suede and used Crumb Cake Stampn' Blends for the inside.  They don't leave the lines like normal markers do.

The patterned paper is from the Tutti Frutti DSP.  The pack of paper is 6x6 and has very vibrant colors.  I wanted paper that had color and some design but nothing overwhelming.  When looking at the pack, these were exactly what I wanted.  Based off the base cardstock, this is the color scheme for the card.


I'll share my other cards that I used this stamp set on at a later date.  It's been addictive playing with these.
