Have you noticed the fun Pineapple background stamp in the new Annual Catalog? It’s so fun! It caught my eye immediately.
I was scanning through Pinterest the other day and saw a great idea for a card using the Pineapple stamp. It looked SO COOL … that I just had to try it for myself and share:)
To create my pineapple, I stamped it multiple times using different colors of ink. For the background on the bottom, I used Delightful Dijon ink and the layers included Crushed Curry and Daffodil Delight. For the leaves, I used Old Olive as the background, and then the layers included Always Artichoke and Pear Pizzazz ink.
While time consuming, I cut the layers out of the coordinating colors with scissors,and adhered them with glue dots so they had a little dimension.
Afterwards, I used a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to highlight random sections. The Glitter Brush made the sections I painted slightly darker, thereby adding even more variation in color.
Before adhering the pineapple, I splattered a Gold Wink of Stella Glitter Brush over the entire card base. To do this, simply hold the brush over the card base and tap it with a Bone Folder.
I made my label with the new Layering Squares Framelits. These framelits are AWESOME!!! I love the way the scallops barely show beyond the borders of the top layer. Now you may notice that my label is not a square!?! Well, I used a little trick to change the shape into a rectangle. I plan on sharing this technique during my upcoming Stamp Club.
I’m not sure if I would take the time to make this card again, but it was fun to try it once. I love the way it turned out!
