Tropical Fruit Project Ideas!

Darkroom Door - Thursday, April 07, 2016

Hi there! Today we are sharing lots of yummy projects using the Tropical Fruit Rubber Stamp Set! This stamp set is full of delicious goodness, with 5 different fruits and a sentiment to match each one. 

Let's take a look at some ideas on how you can use these stamps. First we have some fun cards by Belinda Spencer


Instructions:
1. Cut a piece of smooth white cardstock to size. Using Faber-Castell Stamper’s Big Brush Pens, apply a variety of green pens to one of the Watery Washes stamps. Spritz with a little water before stamping on the cardstock. Scribble the green pens onto an acrylic stamping block and use a soft, wet paintbrush to add more colour to the stamped image. Dry with a heat gun and then wash a little more colour over the stamped image allowing it to spread across the bottom of the cardstock. Flick a little colour over the top too. Dry again with the heat gun.
2. Using a Scarlet Red Pen colour in a couple of Paint Splat stamps, spritz with water and apply to the background. Repeat until you have as many awesome splats as you would like.
3. Next colour in the watermelon stamp with the pens. Use the black pen to carefully colour the watermelon seeds. Spritz with a little water and apply to a scrap of smooth white cardstock. Dry with a heat gun. Scribble the green and red pens onto an acrylic block again and paint the colours onto the watermelon image taking care not to smudge the black seeds. Dry with a heat gun before fussy cutting the image. Add to the card front with 3D foam.
4. Stamp the sentiment using Leaf Green Archival Ink. Cut out the words and ink the edges with Abandoned Coral Distress Ink. Stick down on the card front. Also add a few sequins to the card front. Ink the edges of this whole piece with the Abandoned Coral ink.
5. Cut a slightly larger piece of smooth white cardstock. Apply the Criss Cross Texture Stamp to the two corners as per the example using Rose Madder Archival Ink. Cut a piece of green cardstock slightly larger than this one and then layer all three pieces together. Add to a white cardstock card base.


Here's a jar full of lemons, also created by Belinda Spencer: 


Instructions: 
1. Cut a piece of smooth white cardstock to size. Using Faber-Castell Stamper's Big Brush Pens, apply yellow and grey pens to one of the Watery Washes stamps. Spritz with a little water before stamping on the cardstock. Apply the grey pen only to another Watery Washes stamp, spritz with water and apply layered over the previous stamp. Scribble the pens over an acrylic block and using a soft, wet paintbrush, wash a little more colour over the stamped images. Flick the colours over the top too. Dry with a heat gun.
2. Apply the yellow pen to a selection of splats from the Watery Washes as well as the Paint Splats sets. Spritz with water and add as many as you like to your background. Dry with a heat gun.
3. Apply the lemon stamp from the Tropical Fruits set onto a scrap piece of printer paper three times using Chrome Yellow Archival Ink. Cut these three images out. These will be the masks for the next step.
4. On a separate piece of smooth white cardstock, stamp the lemon slice using the Chrome Yellow ink. Place one of the masks over this lemon slice and stamp another one next to it and slightly overlapping it. Continue to mask off the already stamped images while you stamp more lemons. Stamp enough to fill the Mason jar Frame Stamp.
5. Next stamp the Mason Jar Frame Stamp over the top of the lemon slice background you have created using Watering Can Archival Ink. Fussy cut the Mason Jar. How cute does it look all filled up with lemon slices? Scribble the yellow pens onto an acrylic stamping block and apply a little more colour to the lemon slices with a soft, wet paintbrush. Stamp the lid of the Mason jar again, cut out and stick down over the top of the other one. This eliminates any of the lemon slices appearing in the lid. Tie some twine around the neck of the jar and add to the card front using 3D foam.
6. Use the Watering Can ink to stamp the fun sentiment from the Tropical Fruit set. Cut out and ink the edges with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink. Stick down on top of the jar using 3D foam.
7. Stamp some mini stars from the Stars Stamp Set using the Chrome Yellow ink. Cut out and add to the card front along with some yellow sequins.


This next card is berry good too (sorry, couldn't help myself!):


Instructions: 
1. Cut a piece of smooth white cardstock to size. Using Faber-Castell Stamper's Big Brush Pens, apply two shades of red pens on to one of the Watery Washes stamps. Spritz with a little water before stamping on the cardstock. Scribble the pens over an acrylic block and using a soft, wet paintbrush, wash a little more colour over the stamped images. Flick the colours over the top too. Dry with a heat gun.
2. Apply the red pens to a selection of splats from the Paint Splats set. Spritz with water and add as many as you like to your background. Dry with a heat gun.
3. Add a tangle of red embroidery thread across the background and staple in place in the centre where the strawberry will be.
4. On a separate piece of smooth white cardstock, stamp the sweet strawberry using Red Geranium and Leaf Green Archival Inks. Scribble a red and a green Big Brush Pen onto an acrylic stamping block. Paint a little more colour over the strawberry. Dry with a heat gun. Fussy cut and add to the card front with 3D foam.
5. Stamp the sentiment using the Red Geranium ink. Cut out and ink around the edges with Abandoned Coral Distress Ink. Matte with red cardstock and add to the card front with 3D foam.
6. Add a few sequins across the card front and add to a red cardstock base.


Our next card was created by Connie Mercer. I love how she used the Tropical Lady Line Art Stamp for the background! 


Instructions:
Stamp Tropical Lady (treating it like a background stamp) on white cardstock using brown ink. Trim to 5" X 5". Shade edges with brown ink. Mat on brown pattern paper. Punch out corners, shade with brown ink and adhere to the left top corner of card front. Stamp the Pineapple and Lemon from the Tropical Fruit set on white cardstock using yellow ink for the bottom of the Pineapple and the Lemon. Cut them out. Shade the top of the Pineapple and around the Lemon with green ink. Adhere to card front. Stamp out sentiment on white cardstock and mat it to green cardstock. Adhere to middle of Pineapple image.  Add twine. Speckle with brown ink or similar product.

Connie also created these cute tags to hang off water bottles. Great gift or party idea! 


Instructions: 
1. Cut pattern paper to 3 3/4" W X 8" L.
2. Laying the paper in landscape position on a score board, score at 2 1/2" .
3. Using a 1 1/2" circle punch, punch a circle in the middle of the small paper (above the score line)
4. Under the score line is where a pocket goes to hold the drink packet.
5. The size for the pocket is 3 1/2" W X 3 1/4" L.  If you like, in the middle of the pocket (before you adhere it to the hang tag) punch a half circle. Adhere pocket to front of hang tag.
6. Stamp fruit from the Tropical Fruit set in different colors of ink, on white cardstock and cut them out. 
7. Decorate the front of the pocket.
8. Speckle with black ink or similar product.
9. Add twine.

Lastly, here's a quick card by Rachel Greig using Distress Inks to watercolour: 


Instructions:
1. Stamp pineapple onto white cardstock using Archival Jet Black ink. 
2. Rub some Squeezed Lemonade and Dried Marigold Distress Ink onto a non-stick craft sheet. Using an Aquash brush, pick up some of the Distress Ink with the brush nib and colour in the bottom of the stamped pineapple. Do the same to the pineapple stem using a combination of Peeled Paint and Twisted Citron Distress Inks. 
3. Adhere stamped panel to light green cardstock, then onto a folded yellow card. 
4. Stamp the sentiment onto white cardstock using Archival Jet Black Ink. Create a banner from light green cardstock. Adhere sentiment on top and adhere to card using 3D foam adhesive.
