Hello there and happy Saturday to you! Well, the first week of 2018 is in the books. That sure flew by, didn’t it? Today I wanted to share with you a card that I created for a swap with a few (ok, 35) of my fellow Stampin’ Up demonstrators. These went out the last week of December and today I received my swaps back in the mail and was blown away by the amazing cards I received.
I am absolutely loving the Tutti-Frutti Suite of products in the new Stampin’ Up Occasions Catalog! I have been using them non-stop and actually am finishing up an all new Class To-Go which I will be posting here on my blog really soon.
This stamp set has the most adorable little images and then there are 4 matching punches to make cutting them out a breeze. I did fussy-cut the bowls which became pretty easy once I cut about a dozen of them. I decided to use the new Myths and Magic Glimmer Paper to make that single pear stand out and play off the “You are the Sweetest” sentiment. If you know me, you know I LOVE some sparkle and in this case, a little bit is all you need. Then I colored in the “stem” very gently with a Stampin’ Blends marker. I added a lot of dimensionals to the fruit and the little basket to make them stand out. They tied in perfectly with the Tutti-Frutti Designer Series Paper, as well.
I added the little doily layer to being a little more texture to the card. One little tip I learned, cats LOVE to destroy those paper doilies. Because of a particularly naughty feline, I didn’t have enough doilies for my swaps. She shredded about 5 of them before I caught her! Thank goodness my awesome upline met up with me to loan me some to finish my cards. Crisis averted!
Here is a look at all of the little bowls of pears while I was in the process of getting my cards ready for the swap. It was a lot of work but when you are doing what you love, it is so enjoyable at the same time. Although I will say that fussy cutting almost 40 of those little fruit bowls made me question my decision a few times. Haha!
