Sweet Pineapple Thanks

We had a very rainy and humid end to the day here yesterday. The Stamp, Ink, Paper Store was fun as always! I do enjoy spending time with the ladies at the crop. Pat and I had some fun with heat embossing on chipboard, wood veneer and MDF! She made a beautiful layout with some Blue Fern Papers and Embellishments. I did have to run to the Post Office to drop off a few packages and on my way back I stopped at DSW. I needed a new pair of sneakers and I had a $20 off coupon. I always look on the clearance rack first and there was a pair of Frye sneakers. I knew that they made boots, very expensive boots but apparently they also make expensive sneakers! They were $228!! After the markdown and 70% off and my $20 off coupon I got them for $29!! Woo hoo! I do love a bargain and that was a serious one! They are really nice navy blue suede an leather with a hint of brown. When I got home I had Chinese with my Parent’s, it has become a Sunday tradition and I love it. After that I went with Anthony and Bill to get Anthony a new iPhone. They didn’t have the 7Plus and won’t until late November so Ant got the 7. I personally would have waited but he has even less patience than me! Once I got home I chatted with Andrea for a bit and then a little down time before bed. This morning I’m off to Manhattan with Heather to drop her brother off at Comic-Con and then I’m going to stop by and see my friends Jim and Diane. Should be a fun day! Oh, and for a little added bonus I’ll be back later on today at 11:00am with the new challenge post for the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog so be sure and come back for that! 😀

I started working on this card at the store and finished it when I got home. Apparently it’s stamped background weekend! LOL! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. All of the images and greetings are from the Concord & 9th Pop Art Pineapple Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the flower in Hero Arts Soft Purple and the You’re Sweet in Fresh Peach onto some Solar White 80lb. I used my Grid Mat to line up the images as I stamped them.The pineapple base is stamped in Dandelion Hybrid and Soft Brown with the crown stamped in Green Apple Hybrid. My greeting is stamped in Soft Brown with the banner stamped in Green Apple Hybrid and they are all cut out with the Coordinating Dies. I also die cut a panel of 36lb Vellum with the Lawn Fawn Cross Stitched Rectangle Stackables Lawn Cuts. The images and greeting are adhered to the Vellum with 3D Foam Squares and then adhesive is added behind them and the panel is adhered to the card. A scattering of Pretty Pink Posh Wisteria, Lemon Drop and Sand Sequins completes the card! I really am enjoying the stamped backgrounds, can you tell?! I hope that you like this morning’s card! I thank you for visiting today and don’t forget to come back at 11:00am for my Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Design Team Post! Enjoy your morning and I’ll see you in again a little while! 🙂

  1. Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty card Justin! I love that you can hide the adhesive behind the images on the vellum. Does that mean that the edges of the vellum are not secured to the base? Whatever you did it works beautifully and using the Stitched rectangles die was just the right little touch to take this card from ordinary to extraordinary! It’s a card anyone would love to receive. Add to that the pineapple being the worldwide symbol of Welcome and peace brings the card to yet another level.

    Back to Manhattan today eh? I hope the weather there is better then it is here. It’s chilly and a bit misty which makes for a miserable day to be outside. Last night the race in Charlotte was cancelled and since the debate is tonight I wonder if they will wait until Monday to try to have it. Anyway, you enjoy your friends and having the chance to be in Manhattan once again and I’ll enjoy staying in my nice warm and dry cabin and begin preparing for my trip. The hubs returns tomorrow, I really missed him. You have yourself a sensational Sunday my friend. Love and hugs, XXOO 🙂

    1. Thank you very much Grace! Yes, the adhesive is only behind where I can hide it! I like that fact that it’s not adhered on the edges, makes the card a bit more interesting! I have had the pineapple stamp for a long time and finally got to use it!
      Yes, I was very happy to get to go into the city again! The weather was crap but it’s all good! I of course only wore a sweatshirt and that was a poor choice but I always do that! LOL! I hope that you get to see your race! I did have a very nice time in Manhattan as I always do! Aww, I’ll bet that he missed you too! Hope you had a good day! Love and hugs to you! XOXO 🙂

  2. Love this! Gorgeous colors, and the stitched die on velum, perfect! Hope you enjoyed your time in the city. Just came back from scrappin with my daughter. 31 photos done a great spending time with her. I miss her so much, Hubby is back home, no fsh, LOL.

    1. Thank you Linda! I did have a good time stamping the background, I love a stamped background! So happy that you had fun with your daughter! I knew that you would! LOL! Have a great day! 🙂

  3. Justin, this is a very sweet thank you card. I love the bright pineapple on the front of the vellum. Have a great week ahead.

    1. Thank you HJ! It was nice and simple to make and I do love the stamped background! You have an excellent day! 🙂
