Are you ready for some design inspiration?!? Well, we have you covered! We’re joining designers from Reverse Confetti today to spotlight some of our favorite stamps and dies. We have lots of blogs to visit, plus a fun giveaway from Reverse Confetti, so let’s get started!

Pineapples A Plenty
Pineapples are everywhere these days and I, for one, couldn’t be happier about that! So, it’s no surprise that when given the opportunity to select product for this hop, I chose the Pineapples A Plenty stamp and die sets. This summertime motif is fresh and fun and makes for creating colorful designs!

I wanted some super-simple cards that would be great for sending to friends in the summer. For the first card, I simply stamped and cut the pineapple from white cardstock and adhered it to a card base with foam squares. I drew a quick uneven border around the edge with a metallic marker and embellished with sequins. Note: The sequins were self-adhesive which made the process that much simpler!

For my second card, I stamped and cut three pineapples from cardstock. I used metallic ink for the middle pineapple which added a bit of shimmer. I added a layer of polka-dot vellum to a card base and added the pineapples on top. Baker’s twine and buttons finished off the design.

Enjoy!
