Are you ready for another Stamp Simply challenge? Sharon's got a good one for us this week--fruit! Fruit, you say? Well, here's what *she* says:
July 24 - ssnotime97 - Fruit of the Vine - Fruit, the perfect summer snack, or even meal! I love it! Today let us whip up some fruity type of creation during this time of year when fruit is so plentiful everywhere. I'm sure most everyone has some fruit stamps, or images, and if you don't, how about trying to create some fruit with punches? Or, if you really need to stretch it, how about some *orange* ribbon, watermelon paper, etc. I think you get the idea -- just get fruity and have a little fun!
So, here's my "fruity" card. I've had this fabulous Flourishes' lemon set for a while and it's never seen ink! So thanks for the challenge, Sharon--it got me to use it. I'm also using this card for Flourishes' Timeless Tuesday challenge for this week--to use Shimmerz. I think you can see the shimmer on the upper leaf--I put it all over the image but the rest isn't showing up in this picture.
The patterned paper I'm using is from the Citronella mat pad by K & C0. (note to self: I love it, get more!). The only card stock I'm using is Whisper White for the base and the Yoyo Yellow layer on the bottom element. The image was stamped on Pure Luxury 80lb paper by Gina K. with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers. Then it was cut/embossed with a Nestabilities Oval die. Next I applied some Angel Wings Shimmerz and matted it with patterned paper, also cut/embossed with oval dies. A rusty orange ribbon was tied around in a bow and I called it done! I think I met the "fruit" challenge, don't you? ;-) You think I might have gone a little overboard, LOL?
So, come along and play with us and take the challenge--we'd love to see what you come up with. If you do, be sure to leave a comment on Sharon's blog telling her where you uploaded. Please use the keyword ssnotime97 if you upload to a public forum. Check out Sharon's fabulous sample and also the fabulous designs from the rest of the Stamp Simply team:
