Here we are for day 3 of the Papertrey Ink countdown for this month....welcome back! I have another somewhat lengthy post for today so grab a cup of coffee or tea, sit back and enjoy!
Both Flower Fusion #4 and Fruit Fusion will be available starting on the 15th.
Up first for today is another project using this months Flower Fusion set but before we being I have a little correction to make. In yesterdays post I said there were two flowers included in the Flower Fusion #4 set. There are actually three....2 larger ones and a smaller, center flower.
Today I'm using the coordinating die and the larger, outline flower image. After running my pieces of 2008 Bitty Dot Basics patterned paper through my die machine with the die I stamped each one in Dark Chocolate using the outlined flower.
Next, I stamped the stem/leave image onto a piece of white cardstock in Ripe Avacado ink and trimmed the leaves out.
I attached all my flowers and leaves to the front of my card. 'Merci' is from Think Big Favorites #3. The frame around my Vintage Cream cardstock is from Button Boutique and was stamped in Dark Chocolate.
Next up is more of Fruit Fusion...how about some grapes next!
And look at this....another coordinating DIE!!!
'Miss you a bunch!' I used Aqua Mist & Lavender Moon for my color combo and also 2009 Bitty Dot Basics paper. The grapes are two separate images....one solid and one outlined to give you a bit more versatility when creating with them. Other supplies I used....Rickrack border die & an oval Nestability for my sentiment.
Here is another card using the same color combo. I incorporated a couple of stamps from 'All About You' with this card. After creating my grapes with the die and some Spring Moss cardstock I ran it back through my die machine with the Polka Dot Basics ll impression plate.
Those dots from the impression really make them look like grapes. More versatility...LOVE that!
And lastly for today...more of my patterned paper! I layered that over a piece of Hibiscus cardstock and then stitched around the border. The Simply Chartreuse oval was created with my Nestabilities.
I've had this spool of puffy white poof balls for ages and just now decided to pull them out and give 'em try. I used my hot glue gun to attach it just underneath the edge of my oval. The grapes were stamped in Hibiscus and Summer Sunrise and then sprinkled with glitter. I love how bright and summery they look! 'Hi Sweetie!' is also part of Fruit Fusion!
That's a wrap for day 3! I'll have more to share again tomorrow with more fruit...hmmm, what do you think they could be? Any ideas? Before you sign off today check out what the other ladies have to share....
