March 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop: Birthday Bash!

Hello and happy March 2018!

Welcome to the 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop! This month, it is all about birthdays! I am so excited to be a part of this creative group of Demonstrators. I hope you will be inspired by all the unique creations!

I absolutely enjoyed making these very cute cards using the Fruit Basket Bundle and matching DSP. I love the itty-bitty punches!

For this first card, I used a Soft Suede base, a layer of striped DSP, On a layering piece of Whisper White, I stamped the fruit bowl in Pool Party and Soft Suede Ink. The sentiment is also in Pool Party. I punched strawberries in Real Red, pineapples in Daffodil Delight, and pears in Lemon Line Twist. I used the fine tip of a Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker to add seeds to the strawberries. I added color to the tops of the pineapples using the fine tip of a Tranquil Tide Stampin’ Write marker.

For the second card, everything is basically the same, except I just punched only strawberries to go in my fruit bowl and used a piece of DSP with strawberries all over.

These were so much pun to make. The punched fruit are very tiny though, so you will want to put them in something to keep them from getting lost.
