I love pineapple!!! And when I was pregnant, I would eat a whole one a week! My poor child is just now liking the taste of it! LOL! The Tropical Oasis suite has been a favorite of mine! I have made at least 5 cards using all the goodies! This was one of the first ones I made! I was curious about the dies that cut out the prickly outer layer of the pineapple along with the leaves on top! I decided that Copper Foil was a close match to an actual pineapple outside layer. Once I cut it out, I just kept on going making this card! It was a quick design! I love it when the creative mojo just flows!
I then cut out a small piece of So Saffron cardstock to adhere behind the prickly die shape. Then, I used Mossy Meadow cardstock to cut out the leaves for the top of the pineapple. Next I wanted to create a frame, so I whipped out my Stitched Rectangle dies and measured them against the card base. The Tropical Oasis has a gorgeous rattan looking piece that was perfect for the framed image!
I ran the card base through the die cutting machine with the Subtle 3-D folder to make the Mint Macaron have texture. The sentiment was stamped with Early Espresso, anchored with Champagne Basic Jewels (those need to be a regular item!!!!), and I used the Stitched So Sweetly dies to cut it out. I finished off the card with some frayed Linen Thread topped with the Hibiscus flower from the Tropical Oasis Trinkets.
I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I did making it!

I haven fallen in LOVE with the new Snowfall Accents Puff Paint! I have used it for snowballs, these cute cotton balls, and even popcorn! It is a true treat watching it puff up from the heat gun!
TIP: Use a liberal amount on your image; then gradually get closer to the wet puff paint. If you are too close at first, it will move around. Starting further away lets it set some as you move closer in. But, not too close, I have had mine yellow from getting too hot too! You can go back over it if needed to make it puffier. I didn’t put enough on the first project and I went back and added more. Worked like a charm!
To make this card, I stamped the milk can onto the Mercury Glass Acetate sheet with StazOn and fussy cut it out. I then stamped the foliage and the sentiment onto my Crumb Cake piece of card stock Next, I colored the images with the Stampin’ Blends and Wink of Stella Clear. I distressed the edges of the paper with the edge of my scissors and then followed that with a Early Espresso sponge. The base of the card was stamped with the Birch Background and Crumb Cake ink. I wanted it to be subtle so I stamped off onto my grid paper first, then the Whisper White Thick.
I finished the card off withsome Copper Trim. I am so ready for fall!

Have you ever stepped out of your comfort zone while making a card? I definitely did with this one! I love the Pop of Pink DSP and this heart design that is in that pack. I then used the Sparkle embossing folder. It reminds me of the old signs in Vegas for some reason. I went with the bold colors for the cupcake too! Melon Mambo stamped off and full strength. Then added Rose Red for the little details.I figured I could make the sentiment a geometric shape by just fussy cutting. What do you think?
