Hello, friends! Summer Citrus stamp set from WPlus9 has me incredibly inspired these days – I cannot seem to stop using it (I’ve already shared several card designs and have just as many ideas left).

CARD DETAILS

I started working on this card by stamping 4 pineapples using rock & roll technique onto white paper. I used Hayride as my light color and Wild Mango as my dark color. I double and even triple stamped some of these to have deeper shadows.

Next, I cut the pineapple images out using companion dies and stamped the crown using Last Leaf and Appletini. Because this image consists of 2 parts when using a companion die it’s best to stamp one part, cut out and then stamp the 2nd part (or you can cut the shape out first and do stamping later).

I also stamped and cut out 2 little flowers using Little Piggy and Sweet Gelato colors. I love that this set has this flower included with the fruits, it adds quite a nice touch to the stamped projects.

After I foam mounted 2 bottom pineapples onto a white cardstock panel cut to 4 x 5 ¼” I stamped Hello from the Hand Lettered Hello stamp set in black ink. To stamp the same word onto the other two fruits I aligned them on my panel, inked up the “Hello” stamp and carefully stamped onto the fruit. Using a stamp positioner tool like MISTI or similar can really simplify this process, but I didn’t care to use it at that moment and stamped it the good old way by eyeballing the placement.

I foam mounted my 3rd pineapple in place and before I added the 4th one I cut it in half and only added the top part onto my card.

Why did I do that? When I was making my original card (I’m making a duplicate on video) I messed up the bottom part of that 4th pineapple and left a visible ink stain. I didn’t want to re-stamp another pineapple, so I resolved to cut the stained part off. I’m happy I did, because this added a unique twist to this otherwise simple project.

To finish this card I adhered my panel onto an A2 top folding card base made out of Oatmeal cardstock (I love using this cardstock for card bases lately); stamped a number of “ink splatters” onto the card using a dot cluster stamp from the Summer Citrus set and foam mounted a “Sweet Friend” white heat embossed sentiment on top.

Have fun stamping!

    1. Hi Yana, What an adorable card. Pineapples are so “IN” this year, and I love using them they are so cute. I also love that color “little piggy”, great shade and the cutest name, right !!

    1. What a great card to make on this holiday. Love your color choices for the pineapples. The splatters definitely give the card the perfect final stamp for your card. TFS.

    1. Another fabulous card Yana!! Love the creative way you’ve incorporated the sentiment into the pineapple. Have a wonderful week. ~HUGS~
