Pineapple Pineapple Pineapple

I love Pineapple, especially grilled! These pineapple stamps are so great! These stamps came in the Simon Says Stamp July Card Kit. There are so many good things in the kits, it is totally worth receiving one every month. Here is how I made this card.

Here is the stamp set from the July Card Kit, so many cute images. I used Bristol Smooth Watercolor Paper because when using Distress Oxide Inks, they blend so easy on this paper. I cut the watercolor paper using WPlus9 Sunshine Layers Die. I love the scalloped edge. It adds great detail to your background.

I didn't want ink on the left scalloped edge of the paper, so I used painter's tape, you could use any low tack tape, to tape off the edge I wanted left white. Using a Mini Ink Blending Tool, I blended Distress Oxide inks in Wild Honey and Squeezed Lemonade. I then spritzed the paper with a Distress Sprayer and patted it dry with a paper towel.

Make sure your Distress Inks are dry before the next step. Using an anti-static powder tool, prep the paper with that. I stamped the pineapples with VersaMark Ink, then used Super Fine Black embossing powder and heat set that with my heat tool. I did one at a time because I needed to use masking paper on each one, before I would stamp the next image. It gives the look of things being behind one another. A layered look.

To color the pineapples, I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I used a black glaze pen for the black dots on the background.

On Vellum paper I inked the sentiment and the other pineapple with VersaMark ink and embossed with fine detail white embossing powder and heat set that with a heat tool. I fussy cut both images and ran them through my Xyron Sticker Maker, which is good because you don't see the adhesive through the vellum. I then used the sequins from the card kit and attached those with Multi Medium Matte. I attached that to a side folding A2 (4.25 x 5.5) sized card base.

I hope you liked this card, thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful week and maybe eat some pineapple.
