I have the honour of being June Guest Designer for the Just Us Girls challenge and today is my last GD post as it’s the last Saturday in June. I can’t believe it, the month has flown by! Thanks to all the lovely design team members who have been so welcoming and supportive!
This week is photo week and there’s a fun beachy/pineapple scene! When I saw it, I thought I would use a beach scene stamp as I don’t have any pineapple dies or stamps. Then I remembered my Taylored Expressions red rubber/cling pineapple layering set… I really struggled with it when I tried it and thought I’d never use it again, but for some reason I held onto it…. So I decided to give it another go….
I watched a how-to video by Taylor who made it look very easy and so, armed with acetate and my MISTI, I was determined to create a host of fun pineapple….
My first couple of attempts were OK, the position of the layers looked fine but I didn’t like the colours I used. Alas, when I found a colour combo that I liked, I messed up the stamping… SO. MANY. TIMES….. and always with THE. LAST. LAYER! Argh!
I had originally envisaged at least three pineapples on my card but I have to admit that I quickly changed my mind and stopped stamping as soon as I had one pineapple that that looked OK!
I used Tumbled Glass distress ink to create an oval in the centre of my card and stamped the sentiment from the set. I fussy cut my pineapple and added it to my card base with some heart gems to complete my CAS card.
And that stamp set? It has gone right into the ‘too difficult for LucieG’ box!!
Head over to the Just Us Girls challenge to see the amazing inspiration from the talented design team – we hope you can play along this week!
Thanks for stopping by!
