We've whizzed around to another Saturday which signifies a new challenge over at Less is More. This week it's the turn of our Recipe challenge and this week our recipe is...
Please remember to keep your creations clean and simple
I must admit, this one did stump me as I knew I had very little fruit related stash but I managed to get my brain in gear and create two cards for you this week.
A fabulous digi by Pink Petticoat helped me with my first card...
I love the images from Pink Petticoat and sadly the online store is due to close in the near future. Some wonderful digis are still available to purchase at the moment if you want to grab some bargains.
I printed this digi, coloured it with my ProMarkers and then die cut with a fishtail flag die. The musical notes were stamped onto the image panel. I used two more of the fishtail flag dies to cut two pieces of co-ordinating patterned paper. I adhered some kraft cardstock to my card base, layered the papers and finally popped the image panel up on 3D foam strips.

And for my second card, some fruity Christmas bling!
All the images on this card came from the same stamp set. I stamped the glasses in silver, using my stamp-a-ma-jig to position them. I then used a stitched rectangle die to create the panel. I stamped the strawberry, lime and holly and fussy cut these out before adhering in position. I masked the central glass to stamp the straw. I added some glue to the contents of each glass and added some fine glitter to add some festive sparkle. This irridescent glitter is a lot more sparkly IRL! For a tiny bit more bling I coloured a smooth clear gem with a red ProMarker and added this as the holly berry.
