Going Fruity, huh?

I think I finally got a rather catchy post title, what do you think??  Are you ready to see my other 2 cards from the Bloom Box?  I'm really thrilled with them as I used products that's a bit outside the box for me!

I "kinda" followed the directions for this card but I moved things around and added some colored modeling paste using Bubble Bubble Stencil,  Sweet Berry Splash to color the Modeling Paste and the palette knife.  The cute pennant was made using a punch as was the circle for the sentiment.  Oh, first thing I did was brayer some Bubble Gun ink on the Whip Cream base.  After adding the colored modeling paste I splattered a bit of Bubble Gum Silk.  (I love our Silks!)  I colored the berry with the Blender Solution, Sweet Berry Reinker, and a Blender Brush.

Here you can see the  colored modeling paste a bit better.  I also added some Journey Glaze and  Sparkle Cuts to the berry.  A few Pink World sequins  and I love how it turned out!

I got a bit carried away with this card.  So much did I do it to.  I brayed Pineapple Smoothies, Citrus Cooler, and Sweet Berry inks on the base.  Then I sponged the same 3 inks through the Bubble Bubble stencil in various spots.  Splattered some Silver Silk and I'm ready to start with the stamping.

 I stamped the various fruits, colored with the Blender Solution and different reinkers, covered with Journey Glaze and sprinkled with Sparkle Cuts.

The Summer Pretties flower punches flowers used Pineapple Smoothie and Citrus Cooler papers. I cut the petals and gently made them concave, added the rhinestones, made a double bow from the Whip Cream Thread, and mounted everything on the Citrus Cooler base.  This is so out of the box for me but I think I'll be doing more of this from now on!
