Fruity Friends - One Set Four Ways with Tatiana

Today on the blog, Tatiana will be sharing one of the newest Craftin Desert Divas Sets, Fruity Friends, four different ways! This new monthly series will show you how to take one of our sets and stretch it for more than one occasion or style.

I'm so thrilled to be on the Craftin Desert Divas blog today with a special post featuring brand new and sooooooo adorable Fruity Friends stamp set from the Craftin Desert Divas new July Release!!!

This is a jam-packed post filled with lots of pictures so let's start with the first card colored with Copic markers.

Card #1

I chose some cute fruity characters from Fruity Friends set and stamped them with a Copic-friendly black ink. Next, I proceeded with coloring and finally fussy cut everything with sharp scissors, leaving a little white edge around.

The complete list of Copic markers used on Card #1: 

Skin E0000-E01-E02-E11-R20; YG00-YG01-YG13-YG25-YG95; R02-R05; 
Hair Y21-YR24-YR29-E39; Y11-Y15-Y17-YR24; E33; BG00.

Working on the layout, I die-cut three stitched frames from Fancy Frame Die Set, added a soft coat of Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide ink and a fun dotted pattern through Sorted Shapes Stencil with a plain white embossing paste.

Card #2

Next, we have a soft watercolor scene.

I switched to a Bristol paper and stamped a few adorable girls from Fruity Friends along with some small images from Garden Bugs stamp sets with a waterproof black ink.

Before coloring, I also prepared some die cuts for the background using the same Bristol paper, Flower Border Dies and Fancy Frame Die Sets.

Finally, I could enjoy watercoloring the whole card with watercolor pencils from Prima. "The Basics" 12 piece set was more than enough for this card since you can stretch any color and create a variety of shades by adding less or more water.

Card #3

My third example is this colorful and bright shaker card.

Again, I started with a Bristol paper and a waterproof black ink. The Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers gave a totally different look to this card since they have incredible, juicy colors.

Here's the complete list of all the colors used:

n.51 Lemon Yellow - n.50 Yellow - n.25 Pale Pink - n.26 Light Pink - Peach Pink - Dark Pink - n.40 Green - n.46 Mid Green - n.71 Flesh Colour - n.61 Light Brown - n.64 Oatmeal

Assembling the shaker part, I prepared a watercolor background and filled the circle window with Jungle Berries Sequins mix.

Card #4

Last but not least, I created a colorful fruity background using small stamps from Fruity Friends set. I love to play with small stamps and give them the main focus on my cards. A patterned background is one of the easiest ways to do that.

I stamped a whole bunch of images on a watercolor paper, took my regular watercolors and tried to make a non-perfect (even a bit splotchy) watercolor look. 

Next, I decided to transform my pattern into a scalloped circle card with Inside Scalloped Circle Dies and added the heat embossed sentiment from the same Fruity Friends set on a fish-tailed banner.

I hope this post inspired you to stretch your craft supplies and get more use of the same stamp set. There are so many ways to use these sweet images!
