Share Joy Challenge #41

Hello friends!

Summer is in full swing here, and to be honest, paper crafting has taken a bit of a back seat. When the weather is nice, I love being outside! Today, I am bringing you this week's Share Joy Challenge! I used the sketch, along with the super cute pineapples from the Simply Stamped: Pineapples set.

I started by die cutting the largest frame from the Frame In Frame 2 set, using white card stock. I then made little marks on my card base, so I knew where my frame would sit, and inked up within those boundary lines. I then adhered the frame with foam tape. 

I stamped the pineapple using a Stamp-a-ma-jig, and various inks. Here is what I used. Sorry it's turned! The TE inks are so vibrant, and fun to stamp with, I highly recommend them!


After I stamped the pineapple, I adhered it to my card front using foam adhesive, along with a twine bow underneath it.

To finish my card, I stamped the sentiment and adhered a few sequins, along with a bit of shimmer to the leaves with Wink of Stella.

Here is a look at the graphic, and I have added the info below! I hope you decide to play along with us this week!
