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.

Thank You Beary Much

I am mixing the Paper Smooches challenge with Day 4 of the Online Card Classes, Spring Card Camp 2 lesson.

I used the sets Courteous Cuties and Courteous Cuties 2, along with the Thanks Word Die to complete the card. The paper is from Gina K Designs in the gradient of turquoise colors: Sea Glass, Ocean Mist, Turquoise Sea, and Tranquil Teal for the cardbase. The white is Hobby Lobby 110 pound heavy cardstock.

I love the set with the bear and the sentiment set that matches. The class lesson was to use a repeating die or stamp set in creating a rainbow of words. I thought the gradient colors worked for this idea.
