Hello everyone, Eloise here again today and I’m going to be making another fun card featuring the new Fresh and Fruity stamp set. Today I have a fun sort of layered fruit card.
To begin my card today I started off with creating a ton of masks. I stamped out all the fruit from the Fresh and Fruity stamp set aside from the half watermelon on some full sticky post it notes and then trimmed them all out on the line. I made sure I had two of each, as I figured I would then have enough to mask it all.
Now that I had all my masks ready I began stamping my background. I started off with a piece of watercolour cardstock and started at the bottom of it and started stamping all the way to around the ¾” mark of the piece, using my masks in between so there would be no gaps and they’d all be butted up against each other. I’m also stamping in Versafine Onyx Black ink so I can clear emboss when I’m done. I also decided it would be fun to stamp the little smiley face on top of the lemons. Once I finished all my stamping, I poured over some clear embossing powder and heat set it all.
To colour in my images today I wanted to use some watercolours, so I used my Peerless watercolours – they’re so much fun and I love watercolouring fruit images. Once the colouring was finished I decided I would fussy cut the top portion of the card, so I could have just all the coloured fruit popped up. So I cut along the lines at the top of the fruits and then outlined them with a black marker.
I grabbed a white card base and then adhered my watercoloured fruits piece on top with some fun foam sheets. I then stamped out the sentiment ‘thanks a bunch!’ also from the Fresh and Fruity set and stamped that with the same black ink onto the top of the card base above the fruits panel. That finished up my card for today.
I hope you enjoyed and make sure you stop by the blog tomorrow and the rest of the week for more inspiration!
