Pineapple Play on Words…

HA PINE DIE 2 web

 

Ohhhh, yes I did!  *fist pump*

Another pineapple card. Same awesome Hero Arts Paper Layering Pineapple die as used on this card.  And these cards.

Because resistance is futile.  Gloriously sweet, prickly dimension and detail…

Used my Peerless watercolors this time around. And, I was glad to have the forethought of putting paper towel underneath my project as I watercolored because the paint did seep through the cut lines, naturally.  Avoided a hot mess. *more fist pumping*

I like using Distress Paint in Black Soot for spatter; its thicker consistency allows for the color to remain a deep rich black and doesn’t get watered down. It’s also permanent once it’s dry; if I wanted to watercolor over the top of it, the spatter would remain undisturbed. Muy awesome. :)

When I don’t have a stamp with precisely the phrase I need/want, I rely on my Dymo Label Maker

TO MAKE THIS CARD:

  1. Trim watercolor paper to 4 x 5.25″.
  2. Die cut pineapple into paper.
  3. Color as desired. (I watercolored)
  4. Dry/heat set with embossing gun.
  5. Spatter with black acrylic paint. Dry/heat set with embossing gun.
  6. Pop up details, mount to base card (Standard A-2, 4.25 x 5.5″)
  7. Generate custom greeting with label maker & affix to card  as shown.

 

And, Bob’s yer uncle. ;)

Super Sweet Pineapple Card

HA PINE 1 web

Pineapples. Maybe it’s my Filipino background. Maybe it’s because it happens to be trending/has been trending for awhile.

And, maybe, just maybe I simply like pineapples and they make me smile.  The instant I laid eyes on this die, a bunch of ideas piled up in a jumbled mess inside my head.

So, this is one of four ideas I made recently.  I just played.  Non-stop. Because sometimes you just gotta ride that wave… Especially if you’re stuck creatively  with everything else.  And, I have been really, really stuck.  (oh, hey, was that a pun???!!! BAH HA HAAAAA!!!)

So, this was good, because #1. I had a blast.  #2. I ended up with 4 cards I love. #3. They are so purdy!

HA PINE DIE 1a web

To make this card:

  1. Die cut pineapple on a panel of watercolor paper (the die only cuts the details and does not cut the whole shape out).
  2. Color as desired–I watercolored.
  3. Allow to dry or speed dry with a heat tool.
  4. Spatter with black ink. Dry again.  Trim down 1/4″ all around.
  5. Pop details out.
  6. White emboss a greeting on scrap black card stock and staple to the panel.
  7. Mount to patterned paper; mount all to a base card (This one is a standard A-2, 4.25 x 5.5″)
  8. Embellish with glitter glue.

I love how the patterned paper peeks out from behind the die cut details… Such a fun, clever effect! :)
