Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!




screen-shot-2016-08-31-at-9-18-58-pmHello my faithful friends, It’s Saturday and time for our next challenge over at Just Us Girls! Sue is our hostess and she has come up with a Trend that is very popular right now.  Pineapples…they are literally popping up everywhere.  Have you noticed?  I myself don’t own a single pineapple stamp so I had to get creative.  I took my Striped Scallop Thinlit die from Stampin Up turned it upside down and used it as a stencil to make my pineapple skin. (Seen below) Then I took my leaf stamp from Beautiful Day from Altenew and stamped quite a few leaves on white card stock and fussy cut them out to make my stem.  The little flower accent was made with a MS punch. The (very cool) sun background paper behind the sheet of SU vellum was made with the Let It Shine set from Verve, along with the sentiment.  I wish you could see how pretty that vellum paper is.  It’s from Stampin UP and is covered with flowers and leaves.   I guess you will have to trust me!

I think that about wraps it up!  If you have a pineapple stamp or any type of pineapple supply for that matter, that you are just itching to use, or you could totally do what I did and be creative with what you have… please come on over to JUGS and join us!  Take care, Nanc’
