First I whipped up a sweet orange card using the fruit slice die from the kit.
I sponged Twisted Citron and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide inks as a background, spritzed a bit of water, then added the striped paper (from the Fruit Basket paper pad included in the kit). Before die-cutting the orange slices, I sponged Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide ink and spritzed with water. After die-cutting, I added a bit more ink to the bottom of each slice.
Before I get to my next card, I wanted to share how I store those super cute topping containers.
Queen & Company’s new Topping Trunk INCLUDES 62 containers of the most popular toppings! I absolutely love it. It’s so nice to have them contained, all in one pretty sparkly pink place. You can find a list of the toppings included HERE.
Next, I created a fun hippy slice of watermelon. (It’s a bit different…)
I die-cut the green and pink pieces from the Fruit Basket paper pad, adding a bit of darker pink ink to the top of the slice. After gluing strands of pink and green Sparkle String across the rind, I punched a few holes and inserted two more strands. The ends are secured with tape on the back side. To accommodate for the bit of thickness on the back, I raised the main panel on foam tape after stamping the sentiment.
I adhered two of the included black Twinkle Drops as eyes and a die-cut mouth (from Taylored Expressions’ Spare Parts). As a finishing touch, I die-cut some small circles and randomly adhered around the watermelon.
Thanks so much for visiting today! : )
