5 Cards, 1 Kit | Pink & Main August Card Kit 2019 | Fruit Salad

What is cuter than a fruit stamp set? I loved this kit from Pink & Main with all it’s bold pattern papers, sequins, rhinestones, and twine–and especially the 6 x 6 stamp set. The set provides the outline stamps and the solid stamps; so, you can color in the images or stamp them in. I created 5 fun cards using this kit.

Card #1: Strawberry & Plaid Card

I usually always jump into a kit using my favorite of the stamps and my favorite of the pattern paper. They do most of the work for you. This was a 100% stamped card–no coloring involved, which was unusual for me. If you have a stamp positioning tool, it makes a card like this go very fast.

Card #2: Action Wobbler Lemon

Another fast and easy card with a big impact. Action wobblers are fun to use, and how could the recipient not love it! Minimal coloring on this card–I only filled in the lemon with a few colored pencils to add some dimension.

Card #3: Row of Fruit Card

This card is my favorite! I absolutely love the look of colored pencils on kraft card stock. These fruit images were really fun to color in!! I added highlights with a white gel pen, and this added a lot of charm to the card. Some of the highlight I simply used a white colored pencil.

Card #4: Distress Ink Fruit Card

I had a vision for this card when I started out, and the end result turned out nothing like the vision I had in my head. Lol! That’s how it is sometimes; however, I love how it turned out in the end. This card went through a lot of changes. My plan was to ink smoosh and then stamp the flowers onto it using the pink embossing powder in the kit. I learned that I need to practice my ink smooshing skills.

Card #5: Watermelon Card

I realized when creating this kit that the watermelon image was my favorite of the set. Look how cute it stamped out!! All stamping, no coloring for this card too. It should have been very quick and easy, but I couldn’t decide on my positioning of the melons. That took me a while. Lol!
