Stampin’ Up! Cute Fruit Friendship Card II

Happy Tuesday! Today I’m bringing back the Stampin’ Up! Cute Fruit photopolymer stamp set for another friendship card. For this card, I used a random stamp all over technique to create a faux designer series paper that I cut into strips for my card sketch. This time, I used more of the stamps, and you can see how it ceases beautiful solid image fruits. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of this post along with the sizes of card stock used.

My card is also inspired by the sketch in the Sunday Stamps current challenge SSC250 – Split It Up:

I stamped the images randomly on a Basic White panel. I used Bumblebee and Mossy Meadow on the pineapples, Melon Mambo and Shaded Spruce on the watermelons, So Saffron and Crumb Cake on the bananas, Pumpkin Pie on the oranges and Granny Apple Green (stamped off once) for the kiwis.

Then I used the second largest of the long Stitched Rectangles dies to cut the panel into three sections. I matted each panel on Melon Mambo card stock and adhered them to a So Saffron panel. I popped the panel on the front of a Granny Apple Green card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Cute Fruit stamp set in Shaded Spruce ink on a Basic White strip. I trimmed the ends of a Shaded Spruce strip with the Lovely Labels Pick a punch and adhered the stamped strip to the punched strip. I adhered it to the front of the card with dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the fruits along the bottom of a Basic White panel using the same colors as the card front. I adhered the panel to a Melon Mambo mat and then to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Cute Fruit stamp set is a fun little set that is in the Beginner’s Brochure – you can download a PDF by clicking on the image in the sidebar. It’s great for beginner stampers because it’s complete with several two step fruit stamps and sentiments that go with the fruit theme. And fruity cards are great way to bring colorful fun to dreary, cold winter days.
