A slice of life

I created these cards using an idea I "borrowed" from Stamping Therapy. You can see the card HERE

Now...Jen (at S-T) said she made that card when she was a newbie, but I absolutely adored the colors - and I had that wonderful set, to boot! So I took her idea and went a bit further, and this is what I came up with.



I think the colors are fresh and lovely! The stamp set (fruit slice) is SU's Fresh Fruits (Definitely Decorative). The cardstock and matching ink are SU (Only Orange, Yoyo Yellow, and Green Galore); black cardstock is from hobby lobby; "The Good Life" stamp is Kollette Hall (thanks Suzanne for the wonderful RAK!). I stamped extra "slices" with versamark, and embossed with Uptown Accessories Glacier White embossing powder, and then cut them out, and used foam dimensional tape to "pop" the slice.

I think these cards are great, refreshing summer cards! I made 5 of each color, and played around a bit with coloring in the text on the words, but I think that these plain ones are the best!

If they are this cute in a picture, they must be super cute in real life. Adorable!
