Fresh Fruit — FMS242

It’s time for another new sketch over at the Freshly Made Sketches site, and this week our talented friend, Narelle Farrugia,  from Australia is our hostess.  This is the treat that she has for us:

One of the things that I love about Summertime is fresh fruit!  Cherries, strawberries, peaches, melons, you name it  — I love it!  So this cute Fresh Fruit stamp set was calling my name this week, as it definitely feels like Summer around here.

Happy Birthday PeachI started this card by smooshing some Daffodil Delight ink onto a piece of thick Whisper White cardstock.  After it dried, I spritzed on some Gold Wink of Stella and Basic Black ink.

I stamped the the peach and pear with Pear Pizzazz and Peekaboo Peach inks.  I added some Gold Metallic Thread and a strip of Gold Glimmer Paper.

Happy Birthday Peach Close UpI love how this two-step stamp set makes the images look watercolored.

The black and white striped background was made using the new Diagonal Stripe Background Stamp.    I’m just going to leave this one out on my desk, I think.  I love being able to easily make a piece of striped paper in any color I need.

We hope you’ll join us and play along with the challenge this week!  Jump on over to the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team made for a big dose of creative inspiration.  They will wow you!  Plus, we have a fun announcement today — two new guest designers!  And they are fabulous!

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

    • There are different ways to “smoosh.” 🙂 I usually take an acetate sheet (like the ones that come with clear stamps) and smoosh my inkpad onto the acetate sheet a few times, then spritz on some water before applying the sheet to the card stock. Hope this helps!
