Simon Says Stamp Challenge...Let's Get Fruity Photo Challenge...Lazy Days of Summer!


Hey stampin' friends! Time for another fun challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog! This week we have a photo/theme challenge! We would like to see your make a fruit inspired card or project....so, Let's get Fruity!!!

Here is the inspirational picture....so Let's get Fruity!!!!!

For my card this week I decide to use my new BasicGrey, Sweet Threads, 6x6 papers, painted brads and a Glazed Epoxy brad...such lovely fruity and summery colours in this collection...love it....my new fave BG papers, for now anyways,smile. Then I went in search of a stamp in my stash with fruit in it. I just so happened to have this absolutely adorable Belles N' Whistles stamp called Sunshine and Apples, on my desk and so I inked it up and coloured it with my Copic markers. I cut the image out with one of my older Nesties Label 1 that I haven't used in a while but it is one of my all time favourite label Nestie. I left the image in the die and inked with Spun Sugar Distress ink and I used my glass cutting mat and Fiskars Finger tip control craft knife to cut around the outer edge of the Nestie die to get the slim mat for my image.  

I used a MFT Die-namics Scalloped Ribbon border die and also added some natural twill tape, some Prima flowers and a sprinkling of pink gems here and there. The sentiment is a Melissa Frances rub-on.

Thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card for this week's fruity Simon Says Stamp Challenge! I hope you can join us and if you need a little more inspiration then pop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog and check out all the pretty and delicious fruit inspired creations by the Simon Says DT!!!!

Happy stampin' great day!!!!!
