It's my turn to do Stamp Focus!


I was assigned to share multiple cards with you over Altenew with Simple Fruits. This is actually not a difficult task since this set has so many gorgeous fruit images designed by my dear DT mate/friend May Sukyong Park.

I wanted to show off  some of the yummy fruit in one card. I made inlaid/partial die with 4 in a row and then highlighted the orange on the side!This card is not hard to do at all. All you need is some planning ahead and you can assemble it like a puzzle.

My next card is about GRAPES!


I can't decide the type of grapes I love more--purple or green ones. So I stamped BOTH!! 😀


With the Simple Fruits matching die, bunching up the two together seem like the thing to do!

I love how the matching die can help making the design seamless! There is no overlapping! In this case, I made the pear into one piece as they surely fit the theme! As for the background, I applied two Altenew Metallic Shimmer Sprays: Caramel Toffee and Warm Sunshine.

The Altenew Gold Foil Card Stock completes the polished and perfect look. This can be used for  weddings, anniversaries or just because... type of cards.
I want to create a warm and fuzzy one. So, this is it.

This card is all about colors! The Parchement paper from Altenew make the colors pop even more!
