Such a fun set. You haven’t seen the last of this one from me! I love that they included individual outline flowers as well as the solid flowers so that you can color OR stamp that marvelous and trendy pineapple. I typed in “pineapple” on Pinterest and found some darling pieces of artwork to inspire me for this project. I chose to use Concord and 9th’s Perfectly Penned along with the Pineapple Perfection set to create my own custom sentiment:
To start, I heat embossed the main pineapple image onto some Arches Cold Press watercolor paper, then painted all of the flowers in a tropical color scheme using my Daniel Smith watercolors. I then created the custom sentiment using the Perfectly Penned set and my T-ruler. (That thing is such an invaluable tool on my craft desk.) After I had die cut the pineapple from the coordinating dies, I trimmed off the edge of my sentiment panel and added the pineapple, with one edge of the pineapple slightly hanging over, then trimmed it off with my scissors, and added a strip of shimmery silver paper to the edge. I stamped the Stripe Builder in black and white on my card base, then popped up my pineapple panel with dimensional adhesive. The last step was to add a few black enamel dots to round out the touches of black on the card!
Well, that’s all for me today! We at Where Creativity Meets C9 are SO grateful to Concord and 9th for allowing us to help them celebrate their second birthday. It’s been such a blast, we hope they will be around for many, many more years! Have a marvelous holiday weekend, friends!
