Welcome to the June edition of the Creation Station blog.
This month we are sharing projects that we’ve created with the first products we have purchased from the new Stampin’ Up! annual catalog.
I chose to use the Pineapple background stamp.
The Pineapple is a long standing symbol of welcome and hospitality — from at least the colonial era.
I was certainly thinking hospitality when I created my projects — but with a twist.
First I created this Pineapple treat holder that I thought would be perfect for a tropical themed summer party.
I’ve used Flirty Flamingo cardstock to create the holder.
It uses two 2-1/2″ x 7-1/2″ pieces that were scored and inch from the bottom.
The tops were cut in a banner style. And the sides were punched using the Envelope Punch Board. Place the score line at the bottom of the strip at the 4-3/8″ mark and punch. Flip and repeat on the other side.
Using a 1″ x 2-1/2″ piece of Flirty Flamingo, adhere the two 1″ sections to form the bottom of the treat holder.
I added a little Fast Fuse to the bottom of a 2″ x8″ Cellophane Bag and folded the end over to create a flat bottom.
After filling it with gummy candy and folding the top over, I inserted it into the treat holder and tied the treat holder closed using a piece of Linen Thread wound twice through the punched notches.
The Pineapple was inked in Cucumber Crush and Crushed Curry and stamped on Whisper White.
Then taking a dauber, I added hints of Flirty Flamingo randomly on the Crushed Curry party. of the pineapple.
I painted Versamark refill onto the leaf points. After adding Heat and Stick, they were embossed with Gold Glitter.
Next, I thought it would be fun to have a little something for the party beverages.
I used the small pineapple image from Pop of Paradise.
It was stamped three different times on Whisper White in Cucumber Crush, Crushed Curry and Flirty Flamingo.
The three pineapples were cut out by hand and adhered to a 1-1/4″ Circle of Whisper White.
I gently folded the 1-1/4″ punched circle with out creasing and cut two slits.
You’ll push this small section back to form the slot the straw will slide through.
And since parties often are for occasions,
I created a coordinating thank you.
This card uses a standard card base of Flirty Flamingo measuring 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2 and scored in the middle.
Then, I added a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Whisper White.
Using a little Flirty Flamingo ink refill and an Aqua Painter, I flicked on a few spots of ink to add texture to the background.
The Pineapple was inked exactly like the one used for the treat holder above and cut out by hand.
Next, I added a Linen Thread box with a Glue Dot. The “thank you” banner from Pop of Paradise was inked in Flirty Flamingo on Whisper White. It too was cut by hand and then adhere with Dimensionals.
