Heat Embossed pineapples is what’s on the blog today! I confess, I don’t like the taste of pineapples but I love the look of pineapples. I have pineapple art in my home, a pineapple phone case, cute little pineapple earrings, a pineapple necklace on the way and a fun Pineapple stamp set and coordinating die set! Let’s take a look at my first card. I used White Linen Cardstock by Ellen Hutson and was so pleased with how it took the gold metallic spray. I wanted to use the Linen cardstock because I love the texture it
I started by spraying a panel with Altenew Gold Metallic Spray. While that was drying, I stamped the pineapples (and sentiment) in Midnight ink and then heat embossed it with Raven Embossing powder. Best black embossing powder EVER! Once the gold metallic background was dry, I assembled everything together, added a few strips of washi and voila! Oh the pink pineapple? First of all, who wouldn’t want a pink pineapple! LOL! That was watercolored using the Peony Color Burst. And if you look closely, you will see the texture of that Linen cardstock I was talking about.
My second card features lots of heat embossing. I stamped the pineapples onto some Navy Blue cardstock (Gina K cardstock all the way) in Versamark ink. Then it was time to use some embossing powder. I used the Brutus Monroe Summer embossing powder pack that comes with 4 colors. I used Emerald (green), Sandstone (Orange) and wait for it… Pineapple (yellow). I carefully sprinkled it where I wanted the colors to go and then heat set.
To finish off the card, I stamped “Mahalo” in Watermelon embossing ink (from the Spring Embossing Powder collection) as I thought it would be fun to have a pop of color on the sentiment strip.
I love these embossing powders. I love these pineapples! What do you think????
