Fruit Stand... Happy Birthday

This is such a fun card...  It just feels like summer, which is such a nice feeling here in Michigan where we wait a reeeeeaaaallly long time for summer!

  Ok, on to our card........  This was our make-n-take card earlier this month at our Inkspiration Night & Group Meeting.  I think everyone really enjoyed learning this technique!

We start our card with a Cucumber Crush card base, then added a piece of the Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper (DSP).  This DSP is so gorgeous - some of the fruit almost looks real!

Next, we punched the end of a 2" wide strip of Cucumber Crush card stock with our Banner Triple Punch and then stamped the polka dots on it using one of the stamps from the Timeless Textures Stamp Set.

We adhered this piece to our card with Playfull Palette Designer Washi Tape.

Then, we stamped our peach on Watercolor Paper as follows:

-we inked the peach stamp (from the Fresh Fruit Stamp Set) in Peekaboo Peach ink

-we also added some Flirty Flamingo ink to our peach stamp using a Sponge Dauber and the Flirty Flamingo ink, then we stamped our peach on the Watercolor Paper

-we inked the leaves on our peach in Cucumber Crush ink and stamped them

-we sprayed a little water on our peach using our Stampin' Spritzer (to make the colors "bleed" a bit)

-then, we sprinkled some Clear Embossing Powder on our image and heat-set the look with our Heat Tool  (this gives our peach a "juicier" look)

-finally, we die-cut our peach using the Layering Circles Framelits

How cool is that??
