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.

Unboxing & Reveal of Fruit Basket Kit & 2 Fun Cards! 0Hey there Queen and Co fans!
Rebecca here! Summer is in full swing and one of my favorite parts of summer is the fruit! Don’t get me wrong, I love the relaxed schedule and time in the pool, but berries are some of my favorite foods on the planet so I love when they are in season! Just in time for the fresh fruits to hit the table, Queen and Co released the latest Shaker Kit called Fruit Basket. Featuring shaker shapes from mouth watering watermelon to ripe strawberries, this kit has everything you need to create the brightest, happiest and most delicious looking shaker cards!
Adorable Acrylics! 0
These, tiny, miniature fruits make wonderful additions to the shaker cards you can make with the kit, plus they are cute enough to stand on their own as a card focal point.
I created these cards using the apple and watermelon shapes along with matching sentiments, papers, bling, and twine from the main kit.
Then, I used Kraft colored cardstock as a great neutral base for the cards. With Kraft there are still pops of colors from the patterned papers, but I could also stamp sentiments in white ink. This watermelon card also has the sentiment heat embossed with white embossing powder to help it stand out a little stronger.
Tip: Adhering these clear acrylic pieces is easy if you use a thin layer of our Sheer Glue. It holds amazing and clear so you won't see any streaks or lines through your acrylic.
Thanks for stopping by!
Double Duty Dies! 1
Hi everyone, Ginger here today!
One of my favorite things about the new Fruit Basket Shaker Kit is that there are so many options for different fruits! Today I just wanted to highlight how one of the dies (and coordinating foam shape) can be used to create both a juicy looking pear and a lovely little strawberry!
All you need to do to create the pear is to use the strawberry shape upside down and then cut a stem and leaf with the other included dies. (These dies do double duty as well as a stem and leaf for the apple shaker, or as leaves for any of the citrus fruits).
When used in the reverse you will want to pair your large strawberry die with the stem die. By adding a green stem on top of your shaker you will have a very sweet little strawberry shaker!
These tiny sliced strawberries make this one of the cutest shakers I've ever seen!
The sentiment stamps in the kit contain phrases to match both of these fun fruits which makes completing your card simple and easy!
