Pop of Paradise Pineapple from Stampin’ Up!
“I DON”T LIKE PINEAPPLES” screamed my then 2 1/2″ year old randomly at the top of his lungs as we were driving down a road without a pineapple in sight! It made me laugh at the time as he was so angry and insistent as only toddlers can be and it was so totally random, out of the blue and completely out of any context so far as I could tell! It stuck in my mind for those very reasons I think. Then when I saw the Pop of Paradise Pineapple from Stampin’ Up! it made me laugh as that memory came flooding back!
If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you may have seen these cards in progress. I had a lot of fun the other week creating these. They were inspired by a plastic carrier bag from some retail chain in the UK that had been posted onto our team Facebook page. We’d been discussing how on trend Pop of Paradise is as flamingo and pineapple images are on everything at the moment including plastic shopping bags it seems! 🙂
I stamped the rows of pineapples in white StazOn ink onto a Pool Party card front and then coloured the Pineapples in using the new2016-2018 In-Color Stampin’ Write Markers.
I had so much fun I made another card using Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, Bermuda Bay and Old Olive Stampin’ Write markers too!
What do you think? It’s a cool little technique I think!
