Slice of Happiness

Here are three cards representing the bounty of fruit Summer brings using the ‘Slice of Happiness’ distinctive stamp set.  All three cards have common elements.  They are tied together with an embossed background using the ‘Tin Tile’ 3D folder,  a spot of ‘Crushed Curry’ cardstock and a ‘Vellum’ piece behind the focal grouping.

Pomegranate card details:

  • Cut a ‘Crumb Cake’ cardstock piece 5 1/4 x 4″
    • Emboss with ‘Tin Tile’ 3 D folder
    • Attach to A2 Card base
  • Randomly stamp image on ‘Whisper White’ cardstock  with ‘Merry Merlot’ ink and cut to 3 1/2 x 4 1/2″ with  ‘Rectangle Die’
    • Stamp another pomegranate and cut out for centerpiece.
    • Attach to right side of crumb cake piece and center top to bottom
  • Cut a banner piece to span across card
    • Attach 1″ from bottom
  • Cut ‘Vellum’ 2 3/8″ circle from ‘Stitched Shapes’ dies
    • Add ‘Dimensionals’ to  center of vellum
    • Take  pomegranate cut out and center on vellum with dimensionals
  • Secure and tuck greeting under pomegranate
  • Add bow with matching crushed curry ribbon or twine

 

Similar steps to first card:

  • Cut ‘Silver Foil’ sheet for background at 5 1/4 x 4′
    • Emboss with ‘Tin Tile’ Embossing folder
      • Swipe silver piece with ‘Fresh Fig’ ink pad
      • Attach to ‘Blackberry Bliss’ A2 base
  • Stamp grapes in random pattern with ‘Blackberry Bliss’ ink on 2 1/2 x 5″ piece of ‘Whisper White’ cardstock
    • Stamp another for centerpiece and fussy cut out
    • With a bit of water on a brush (not too wet) go over grapes in darkest spots which will bring up color and dimension (‘Wink of Stella’ adds a glisten too)
  • Attatch 2 1/2 x 5″ to left side of card as shown in picture
  • Using the ‘Stitched Rectangle’ dies, cut out a ‘Crushed Curry’ 2 1/5 x 1 1/5″ piece
    • Layer and die cut a whisper white piece from the same die set and stamp a sentiment in ‘Blackberry Bliss’ ink
    • Layer together and attatch to left side of grape piece 1 /14″ from bottom
  • Die cut an oval out of vellum
    • Layer with grape cut out and pop up with dimensionals…same as first card

This card is made the same as the first two except the colors used were ‘Granny Apple’ ink, ‘Crushed Curry’ and ‘Mossy Meadow’ cardstock.
