Stamp Focus-Simple Fruits

by Virginia Lu

Hello Altenew friends! It's Virginia here! Are you searching for a colorful and happy stamp set? We are talking about Simple Fruits Stamp Set today. Are you in love with this set like I am? This Stamp set is the answer to all things good and wholesome!

6x8 Simple Fruits 1

The images are SO SWEET and the matching Simple Fruits Die sure make it easy to add pizzazz to your design. Let's get right to the yummy cards!

Altenew File4In this card, I stamped the images and made the die cut. What I did differently was to partially die cut the card stock and then I fit the fruits back to their spaces like a puzzle.

The orange image was highlighted with the white-embossed sentiment that were colored in Seashore Oval, Warm & Cozy Oval and Rose Petal Oval Inks.

My next card is a clean and simple design that is perfect for weddings, anniversaries or…just because occasions.

I created an artsy watercolor background by using the Altenew Metallic Shimmer Ink Spray (Warm Sunshine and Caramel Toffee). 

A little bit of spray mist goes a long way! Once I finished stamping the two pears, I used the pear die to partially cut off one of the pears and then joined the two pears together with a piece of thin double-sided tape on the back. Now that's what we call a “seamless pair/pear”!

Altenew File3My 3rd card is about the celebration of friendship.

The clever pun in this sentiment is too cute! I love the grape image and couldn't resist to create the following card!

I started out with stamping the grapes to create a colorful background. The Lavender Fields card stock complements this design perfectly. The Pink Triangle Washi Tape  makes the color pop even more! I bundled up two bunches of grapes as the focal point with silver strings and and this card is complete!

Altenew File5I hope you find today's post with “Simple Fruits” Stamp Set “fruitful” (pun intended!).
