Sweet Kiwi Hop

Welcome to the Sweet N Sassy June Blog Hop for the adorable Sweet Kiwi stamp set. Since I am the guest designer this month, they are letting me hop along with them. Whohoo!!! Details on this new set Sweet Kiwi are below.

My creation today is totally inspired by my wonderful friend Katie's card found HERE. I have seen lots of different watermelon slices and melon slices in general. However Katie's sent me over the edge on total awesomeness (if that is a word) and I asked her permission to case her idea. Sweet Kiwi was a perfect fit with the watermelon slice so I was thrilled she said yes!  I cut my melon slice using Spellbinders Grand Calibur and scored it in half. My ric rak ribbon is from my ever so wonderful friend Pat that I layered underneath the red cardstock and gingham cardstock. A fun idea for the sentiment was to make it look like a bite had been taken out of the melon already. I added more of the ric rak ribbon around the sentiment bite. If you look close you can see that the seeds on the gingham and the melon Kiwi is holding is shiney from some liquid glass to make for the wet look. Added some sponged clouds and voila a super sweet card. I adore how this turned out. Thanks Katie for the inspiration and Pat for the ric rak ribbon!
