Did you know that the pineapple is a symbol of good cheer, warmth, family and given to others as a welcome gift? I knew about people giving pineapples as a welcome gift when someone moves, but I didn't know the other meanings. This is a new stamp in the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog.
Did you notice the coloring on the pineapple and how it has darker areas? There is a fun way you can get the same look. The first thing you want to do is stamp the pineapple with Delightful Dijon ink. You will then flip the stamp over, so the ink is up, and take the Chocolate Chip marker and trace all the lines. You don't have to be exact on this. I also took the marker all the way around the outside edge of the stamp. Now is the fun part. Stampin' Up! has a Stampin' Spritzer that you will fill with water. While holding your stamp about 8-10 inches away from the spritzer, spray the stamp. You will then stamp your paper, lift and see the awesome effect on your pineapple. I just love it!
To make the rest of the card you will need the following:
Chocolate Chip Card Stock #102128
- cut at 5 1/2" x 7 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
Whisper White Card Stock #100730
- cut at 2 3/4" x 5 1/4" for the inside
- cut at 3" x 5 1/4" for the front
In Color Designer Series Paper Stack 2015-2017 #138432
- cut at 1/14" x 5 1/5"
One of the things I did with this stamp is cut it. I used my paper snips and cut the stamp between the pineapple and the top. It makes it easier to do the two different colors. If I want it as a one piece they will fit perfectly back together.
Don't forget tomorrow is Fall Friday! I have a beautiful card to share with you!
