Hi Everyone, thank you for dropping in for this weeks Social Stamping blog host, hosted by the lovely Kelly Kent. For a full list of everyone participating today, click here.
The theme this week is Thinking of You, which I have loosely interpreted as making a card just to say Hi – no big occasion, just Hi, I’m thinking of you. This was a fabulous excuse to play with some new goodies that arrived during the week! The stamp set I am featuring is the aptly named ‘Cute Fruit’ – and if you are thinking to yourself that you don’t remember seeing this set in the Annual Catalogue…..you would be right! Did you know that Stampin’ Up! has a beginners brochure (Check the link to it under the menu item ‘Ordering Info’), aimed at the beginner stamper? It has some unique products, and some coordinating products, and some products that are also in the annual catalogue but are presented in a starter kit to make starting out that much easier. I couldn’t resist buying this set when I first saw it – it is absolutely cute!
I started off by stamping all the images in an array of bright colours on a piece of A4 Whisper White card stock. Ive used a combination of Magenta Madness, Just Jade, Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody and Granny Apple Green,
I cut this piece up into 4 card front sized pieces to create a set of 4 bright and cheerful cards. The sentiment was cut from the brand new Playful Alphabet Dies. This die set is an absolute winner in my book, sized perfectly for card makers and it comes with both numbers and letters. In order to make them stand out more, I have stuck the black cardstock to a sheet of the new foam adhesive sheets and then cut out the letters. These sheets are like a solid piece of dimensionals – so they really do give some awesome dimension.
I hope you like these bright and happy cards, I certainly enjoyed making them! What colour is your favourite? I think mine is Magenta Madness 🙂
