Learn How to Create a Delightful Pineapple Card

 

Hello friends, today I have a very fun inky technique to share with you on how to create your backgrounds using plastic and Fireworks Craft Spray. You will love how easy it is and how versatile it can be. Simple and delightful!!!

Directions

Step 1

Cut the pineapple die cut using whisper white card stock, but don’t discard the negative parts. Apply Electric Yellow Radiant Neon Ink directly over the body of the pineapple.

Step 2

Cover the pineapple with Clear Embossing Powder. Remove the excess and melt the powder with the heat tool.

Step 3

Repeat the process with the leaves of the pineapple applying Radiant Neon Electric Green but this time cover with Verdigris Embossing Powder to obtain a mixed color. Set aside. Take a big piece of plastic or wrapping paper, the same one you use in your kitchen and spray it with two colors of Fireworks–Dandelion and New Sprout. Smash the paper and apply the color over a piece of whisper white card stock. You will have a great texture on your paper and the intensity of the color depends directly on your style and colors that you used.

Step 4

Assemble your card using coordinating colors of layers. In my model, I used Basic Gray for the base, Crushed Curry for the second layer and then I pasted the decorated layer with Fireworks. I removed some of the negative parts of the pineapple to have a dramatic effect and pasted it with dimensionals. Finally, I stamped the sentiment using Versafine Onyx.

    • Hi! We asked Martha where she received the pineapple die and she said it was a gift.. so the source is unknown. But the good news is that Hero Arts has a similar one! so does Kaiser Crafts.
