Pop of Paradise for TGIFC63

July 11, 2016 6 Comments

It’s been a beautiful day today.  My daughter volunteered to go out and  mow the lawn — it has grown sooo fast with all the rain we’ve had.  She no sooner got started than the mower stopped.  It has had a problem lately just racing terribly and she thought maybe it had finally bitten the dust.  After coming to tell me about the problem, I suggested she check a couple of things that would be easy to fix.  She checked and fiddled and finally applied the housewife’s trusty fix — she gave it a swift kick.  Miraculously, it not only started — the racing engine was no more.

Now on to my creation.

I used Pop of Paradise and combined it with TGIFC63

Pop of Paradise for TGIFC63 for theartfulinker.com

I’m really loving playing with this set and trying all kinds of color combinations.

The card base is a standard 5-1/2″ x 11″ scored down the center.

The Whisper White layer measures 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″.

My center strip of Whisper White measures 1-3/4″ x 5-1/4″

For today’s card, I used:

Tempting Turquoise Rose Red Emerald Envy

The Tempting Turquoise pineapple in the middle was stamped first.

Then I moved on to the pair of Rose Red pineapples followed by the Emerald Envy pineapples.

This bold color combination works and is fun twist.

I added the Pineapple stamp inked in Tempting Turquoise to the background.  It was stamped on Whisper White and then cut out by hand  The longest leaves in the pineapple’s crown needed to be trimmed just slightly to fit the Whisper White background layer.  I eyeballed the general shape of the tips of the leaves and tried to recreate that on the leaves I was trimming.

After adhering the center strip with Dimensionals, I added slender strips of Silver Glimmer Paper at the top and bottom of the center strip.  Next, I added several loops of Silver Metallic Thread, adhering them with Glue Dots.  Finally, there are a few sequins from Silver Sequin Trim.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at this fun twist on Pop of Paradise.

    Love the color combo you used Sara! I’m not into the pineapples, but you certainly made a card I like! Love the touch of silver glimmer paper and thread. Good luck with the mowing problem! 🙁 Hope to see you next week at TGIF!

      Glad you liked it Holly! I’ve enjoyed playing with a variety colors for the pineapples.
