How To Stamp a Hello Card for a Friend

Pineapple Hello

Pineapple Stamp is Perfect for One Layer Cards

Buongiorno! I’m still enjoying the Italian Riviera in Rapallo.

Just like home, vibrant fruity images abound as we stroll the alleys and shops. I’m reminded of SU!’s new huge pineapple background stamp.

The scrumptious fruit and American symbol of friendship and hospitality is the focus of today’s simple one-layer card. The huge pineapple stamp is a “wow” image that needs little else to make an impact and a statement.

Just Stamp Tips

  • To create the pine cone texture and details of a ripe fruit, I inked the bottom portion of the pineapple first in Daffodil Delight, then added shadows with Crushed Curry and Soft Suede. I applied these colors with a dauber.
  • The leaves were inked likewise. First in Wild Wasabi and then daubered with Garden Green.
  • After inking and before stamping onto Whisper White heavy cardstock, I sprayed with water by holding the spritzer about 8 to 10 inches from the stamp. The impression turned out beautifully.
  • The hello thinlit in Basic Black cardstock was adhered with fine tip glue.
