Pineapple Mahalo for SSINK Color Challenge #45

I grew up on Oahu and had acres and acres of pineapples growing right behind my house in Waipio Valley.  I remember chasing around those fields after school with my dog running beside me.  And they’re easy to grow!  Every time I buy a pineapple & just stick the top in the ground & it will produce a pineapple the next year!

Stampin’ Up! is retiring my Pineapples!!  And the Mahalo!!  I’m sure I won’t be getting rid of those…they come in handy here on Maui!

Card Details:

  • Stamps:  Pineapple, Pop of Paradise, A World of Thanks (ALL RETIRING!)
  • Ink:  Delightful Dijon & Pacific Point
  • Paper:  Pacific Point (4 1/4 X 11, score at 5 1/2 & 1 1/4 X 5), Whisper White (5 1/4 X 4 & 1 X 1 3/4 & 1 X 2 7/8)
  • Accessories:  Gold Wink of Stella (RETIRING!), Linen Thread

Look what I did with my stamp!  Took a little courage, but I’m happy with the results!

Now it’s super fast to stamp with 2 colors!

Thanks for stopping by!  And be sure & pick up some Gold Wink of Stella and other retiring items before they’re gone forever!  SHOP RETIRING PRODUCTS!

Poppin’ Pineapples!

Pineapples are a big thing here on Maui!  They’re sweet & delicious & one of my favorite things to snack on.

Anyone ever had that Pineapple Whip at Disneyland?!!  On a hot day after riding on the crazy Jungle Cruise?  Yum!!

Pineapples are also a symbol for hospitality and welcome!

Today the theme is “Friday Favorites” at Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration!

The background paper is Pop of Pink Specialty DSP.  I’ve used most of it up for pink & black cards, but love the gold with the pineapple!

Card Details:

  • Stamps:  Pineapple, A World of Thanks
  • Ink:  Night of Navy, Crushed Curry
  • Paper:  Night of Navy Card Base (4 1/4 X 11, score at 5 1/2), Gold Foil Sheet (5 1/4 X 4), Pop of Pink Specialty DSP (5 X 3 3/4)
  • Accessories:  Wink of Stella- Gold
  • Tips:  Yes, I had to fussy cut the pineapple!  Leave a little tag on the spikey leaf part to glue to the base.  Then I popped it up using dimensionals.
