Hello stampers and happy Friday to you. Today I am going to share with you Cute Fruit which is a stamp set that is NOT in the annual catalog. So where can you find it? In the Beginner Brochure called “Make Beautiful Things”. Let’s take a look at your options.
Cute Fruit Collection
This is what the beginner brochure says: Combine juicy fruit and happy smiley faces for bright and fresh projects. The Cute Fruit Cards & Tags Collection includes enough supplies to create as many cards and tags as you can imagine. No guesswork needed – we’ve done it for you! Mix and match the images and greetings to create projects for any sweet friends. The Two-Step Stampin’ allows you layer images in multiple colors. You’ll have so much fun combining the images to create a variety of fruit!
*Cute Fruit Stamp Set – 17 stamps
*Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock
*Classic Stampin’ Spots Assortment (Basic Gray, Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green, Real Red, Shaded Spruce)
*Clear Block D
I think that this is a fantastic way to start your stamping journey. When I first started the hardest thing was not having enough colours. This collection gives you a fabulous selection and you don’t have to figure it out yourself. The block is big enough to work with all the stamps.
This collection is only $79.75 which is a pretty affordable way to start a new hobby. Already have a block and inks? The stamp set is only $22. Just click on the links below in the product list and you will get all the details.
My Cute Fruit Collage Card
I have long extolled the virtues of notecards and envelopes. Every stamper should have at least one pack of these on hand as they are great for making quick and easy cards. Simple stamping at it’s best!
Don’t you just love the bright colours and bold images? This card was so much fun to make! I also made the tags and one of the other cards from the brochure. I’ll take a picture of that page so you can see them too.
What is collage stamping? It is when you stamp a lot of images repeatedly to create a background. The most effective way to do this is to:
- Stamp your largest images first.
- Stamp some of your images off the edge of your card.
- Rotate your images so that they look more natural and random.
- Fill in the open spots with your smallest images.
- Use complementary colours.
Here is the video I made when making this card. Be forewarned, it is a Facebook live video so there is the regular amount of chit chat. I won’t know if you fast forward to the good parts!
Thanks again for joining me today, I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Just a reminder that the great deal on the starter kit with the bonus free bundle of your choice ends on Tuesday June 30. You could put this collection in your starter kit as well as anything else you like excluding host sets. Ready to take the plunge and have Christmas for yourself in the summer? Just click here.
