Happy Thursday! Can I make a pineapple relate to the Olympics? Why, yes, yes I can! Pineapples remind me of the costume that Carmen Miranda used to wear. She was an actress and singer who was very popular in Brazil and America. See? Brazil = Olympics. Mission accomplished – LOL!
Seriously, I recently bought this fun pineapple stamp and thought I would see what I could do with it. This card actually started out following a recent Freshly Made Sketches challenge but I felt like I veered off the challenge too much to enter it. So you get to see it today!
I started by stamping the pineapple in yellow and then adding some orangey markings. I did a two tone top to it and then die cut around it with a stitching circle. I used some yellow twine to stitch around the circle and then backed the circle with some cork.
I added the sentiment (which I know is Hawaiian and not Brazilian – LOL) and then attached to the card base.
That’s it for today! Thanks for stopping by and be sure to pop in tomorrow!
