Making Rainbows out of Watermelon!

Making Rainbows out of Watermelon! 0

Hi Everyone!

Susan Weinroth here today to share a couple of cards that I whipped up with the adorable new Fruit Basket Shaker Kit.



The first card that I created was a fun take on the Fruit Basket Kit - not focusing at all on the "fruit" theme...



I used the "rind" part of the watermelon die cut to create a rainbow feature for my card.  The negative (inside) part of the rind die-cut makes a perfect rainbow!



I then flipped the strawberry die cut over to create a cute heart shaped cloud for my rainbow.  An upside down apple cut is layered behind the cloud.



For my second card, I used the strawberry die cut in a more traditional sense, and created a cute strawberry shaker!



I filled it with diamonds and mini strawberries and tucked my stamped sentiment under the strawberry stem.

I hope you love the bright colors and fresh vibe of this kit as much as I did!!!

Use Up Those Scraps Layout! 0

Stacy here!  
There’s something very satisfying about being able to use up paper scraps and leftover embellies that I have sitting on/around my scrap table.  That’s what I did with this layout.
 
 
I grabbed a bunch of paper scraps from different Queen & Co. paper packs (yes, I’m one of those people who keeps EVERY little scrap of my favorite papers).  I cut them into thin strips in varying lengths.  I lined the strips up in columns to create the anchor block for my photo.  Then I dug into opened packages of Queen & Co. bling still sitting on my scrap table after the last couple of projects and added a little pizazz to the paper strips.
 
I cut my photo into a circle, then I cut a slightly larger cardstock circle and crocheted around it to create a frame for the photo.  A few Queen & Co. flowers and die-cut leaves provided a nice little accent for the photo.
 
 
Stacy!
 
I hope you’re all enjoying your summer!
