Apple or Pear? 0
The Fruit Basket Shaker Kit packs a whole lotta awesome into one kit. Picking a favorite shaker is tough, but I've gotta say the apple is somewhere near the top for me! Those darling little multi-colored fimo apples are over-the-top cute!
I used an ink blending tool to add just a touch of golden yellow ink to the white card stock behind the shaker, then filled with the little apple toppings and finished off with the apple frame, leaf, and stem die-cuts. Super easy and so eye-catching!
For my sentiment, I stamped in black onto a white card stock rectangle, notched the bottom edge, added a light touch of yellow ink blending, then accented with epoxy dots and green twine from the kit.

Next up are the super charming pears. The die that makes the strawberry doubles as a pear when turned upside down.
I did a lot of ink blending on this card -- the pear backgrounds, pear frames, and the stitched rectangle background panel.
I love the pop of the dark gray card stock and white embossed sentiment.

Fruit Shakers from Summer to Fall! 0
Rebecca here with two new shaker cards made with the fabulous, fruity, Fruit Basket Shaker Kit. The fruit basket kit is perfect for making bright colored, summery cards.
Turn the Strawberry Upside Down! 0
I chose to make this die look like it had been cut in half by die cutting the apple onto white cardstock as well as red paper for the outside edge.
I used the outside foam piece for dimension and then chalked the "core" and added the black seed gems to finish it off.
I made the first pear into a shaker box but used the negative foam piece to create dimension on the second pear.
I tucked the second pear behind the first, and cut the foam piece to match. A little inking brings them both to life. A "perfect pear"!

Create using Dies Only! 0
Hello! Laurie Schmidlin here with you today! I've got a couple of cards to share with you that I created with the brand new Fruit Basket Kit! I have been a fan of Queen & Co's kits for quite a while, but this kit is hands down my favorite! I love everything about it...the dies, the fun sentiment stamps, cute paper, and especially the adorable little fruit fimo toppings!
Both of my cards feature ways to create using the included dies, aside from creating shaker cards! There are so many possibilities!
My first card is all about the citrus shapes! I die cut two of the large citrus dies and two of the smaller ones. I sponged them to look like an orange, grapefruit, lime, and lemon.
For the sentiment, I embossed in white one of the included stamps onto black cardstock. I then wrapped some of the included twine around the edge before adhering to the card using dimensional foam.
My second card shows a fun way to create a three dimensional strawberry! I die cut the strawberry die four times out of the included patterned paper. I scored each die cut down the middle and folded them in half. I adhered each side together using a strong adhesive.
I added a strip of patterned paper (included in the kit) and did a little messy stitching to attach it to the card. For embellishment, I sprinkled on a few Epoxy Dot Stickers.
