Share Joy Challenge #48


I have the latest Share Joy Challenge to bring to you, today! I used the fun sketch for this one, along with the Simply Stamped - Pineapples stamp set, and dies. As I write this, it's 90 degrees, and hot, hot, hot! That pineapple looks good enough to eat! 

To begin this card, I took my frame and marked the inside edges. I then masked off the edges, and erased the pencil marks. I brought in a combination of Distress Ink to create a very tropical background. I set that aside, and began stamping my pineapple.

For the pineapple, I used several dye inks to layer up the image. Once it was stamped, I die cut both the top and the bottom out, and placed it onto my card front to see where to draw lines with my black multi-liners. I adhered the frame with foam tape, stamped my sentiment, and adhered the pineapple, along with a few black sequins.

Details on how to play along with us this week are below! I can't wait to see what you make!
