About Me

Hello! My name is Sarah Fleming, and I'm a paper addict living in central Texas. I'm an independent demonstrator for Stampin' Up! and love to teach others how to make lovely paper projects. I always have ink-stained fingers (I'm okay with that). I also knit. If you're in the USA, I'd love to be your demonstrator!

Sweet Pineapple

Stampin' Up! Pineapple background stamp with Cupcake Cutouts framelits and shaving cream background - Splitcoast Stampers Creative Crew - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

My second card for the Creative Crew over at Splitcoaststampers this month is for the color challenge. The May color challenge was pretty challenging for me, as I struggle with putting more than three colors on one card.

These are the colors, and we’re supposed to come up with whatever is closest to Stampin’ Up! colors. My colors may be a little bit of a stretch, but I settled on Berry Burst (available June 1 for customers and May 2 for demonstrators!), Flirty Flamingo, Pink Pirouette, Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, and Sahara Sand. I didn’t use Pear Pizzazz in the background, only as a mat behind the main panel.

I decided to use the Shaving Cream background technique and Whisper White cardstock to get all these colors working together. Once I made my first two backgrounds, I loved them so much that I made six more. I just couldn’t stop! And each one is unique — they all look completely different! So I will be sending out quite a few cards made with this background.

The colorful background reminded me of the gorgeous flowers in Hawaii, so I decided this card needed the sweet gold pineapple. After the background was dry, I stamped the Pineapple background stamp (retiring soon!) in Versamark (I used the MISTI to make sure I got really good ink coverage), then embossed it in gold.

I layered the main panel over a panel of Pear Pizzazz and a card base of Pink Pirouette. Then I cut the word “sweet” out of both Berry Burst and Pink Pirouette cardstock, using the Cupcake Cutouts framelits. I finished off the card with some Whisper White Thick Baker’s Twine (also retiring).

For the inside, I simply stamped part of a sentiment from the Sweet Cupcake stamp set.

Sarah, this is AMAZING!
I love this pineapple stamp and I am so sad that it is going. You have so inspired me to use it one last time with this card.
AMAZING. I think I am going to have to try this shaving cream technique.
