Fruity Birthday

I have another card that I created with fruit for the Mod Squad Challenge. It has been posted from Split Coast Stampers. I am also entering this in the Simon Says Stamp challenge.

The oranges came from You’re the Sweetest and the leaves from Anemone Wishes, both from Gina K Designs. The sentiment came from a Hero Arts set.

I saw this idea on Pinterest and it looked fun to create. I used SU Tangerine Twist ink, marker, and cardstock on this card. The green leaves are Fresh Asparagus ink and cardstock from Gina K Designs. The ribbon is Old Olive. I made the stripes using a ruler and marker. I cut the orange slices with a 1 3/4 inch circle punch, then sliced a few in half. This was fun to create. Thanks for stopping by to take a look.

Fruity Thanks

This card was created for the Mod Squad Challenge using fruit and the Paper Smooches challenge of Anything Goes.

For the fruit I used You’re the Sweetest by Gina K Designs. I remember this set coming from a kit released in 2014. It was a favorite and I still pull it out and enjoy stamping with it. The leaf stamp is from Cute Fruit by Paper Smooches. I needed a leaf and this set has a couple of choices which worked perfectly. The sentiment is from Positive Vibes by MayMay Made It.

New dies arrived in today’s mail and I used them on this card. Gina Marie Designs, Stitched Scalloped Rectangles were a joy to use. I die cut the center, then cut a white piece to stamp the sentiment on and popped it up in the center. I die cut the background with the largest die from the set and didn’t like it on the white card base, so I die cut the entire base to match. I really like the completed scalloped card as it is different that what I normally do and will be a joy to send.

I used Key Lime in both cardstock and ink and Sweet Mango all from Gina K Designs. The yellow is Lawn Fawn Lemonade ink and the solid green leaves are stamped with Stampin Up Granny Apple Green. The card base is Hobby Lobby 110 pound white.
