Organic Fruits


I think my favorite product from 2021 is Organic Fruits by Simon Says Stamp (no longer available!!). I have the die, stencil, and stamp, and use them frequently. This time I only used the stamp and die and colored by applying ink pads directly to cardstock and then stamping and die cutting. Fun.  I colored the card base the same way, be sure to leave some white. As much as I love color, too much can strangle a design. 

And since I had the set out, I decided to make a card using the pear design. This one also uses some patterned paper by Honey Bee stamps. Sentiment and heart from The Stamp Market.

MOOD WHEN DONE: Enjoyed making these cards. Hope you are well!

Thrilled to see you posting again. Love the trick using the same stamp pads to make the background layer. Did that many years ago and completely forgot about it. Thanks for the reminder.

Wonderful to see you making cards. Hope you and your family are well. Oh, and peaches sound so good to me seeing your coloring.

I appreciate you giving attention to an older set. Love the simplicity and especially like the pear card. I recently received a similar store bought card and loved it enough to save it for inspiration. Thanks, Joan!
