Today Clear & Simple Stamps is releasing some super yummy sets! The collection is called Perfect Harvest and includes lots of fruits, veggies, sentiments, and coordinating dies. As you can see from my project above, I really had fun with all those fruit images. I made a card and tag combo!Distressed Linen. I die cut all the fruit before I stamped the images on them. Most of these stamps are two or three step stamping, which allows you to add more color to your image easily. For example, the pineapple is three stamps. Each color is a different stamp. I love that!
Word Window die. The words "Organic Thanks" comes from two different sets (Trendy Tags 2 (older set) and Well Preserved (more details on that tomorrow). The sentiment is stamped on a die cut circle that I cut in half.
I didn't want the tag to be match-matchy with the card, but I did want them to have similar elements. I used the larger Labels 5 die to create the tag base, just cut two shapes and adhered the two at the top. I used the same Distressed Linen background stamp. I pulled the purple color from the grapes and the red inked sentiment from the apple of the card. I also used a full circle, instead of the half circle on the original card.
Have a great day!
