Aloha - Another Mini Catalogue Sneak Peak

I'm focusing on making items using the Timeless Tropical stamp set with its coordinating Tropical Oasis DSP and dies, products that will be available on January 3 when the mini catalogue debuts.

 Yesterday I made a card featuring the Hibiscus flower.  Today the focal element of the card is a die cut pineapple.


This card features a die cut pineapple adhered to a background brayered with Pool Party and Pear Pizzazz Ink.  The Pineapple is die cut in 2 layers.  The top layer is Mango Melody with a layer of Soft Suede beneath.  The Mango Melody layer has the edges sponged with Soft Suede ink.  After the two layers were adhered together I used a bone folder to create some roundness to the pineapple and then it was adhered to the background using dimensionals,

The leaves were die cut twice - once in Pear Pizzazz, and once in Garden Green. The edges were sponged with their respective colours and then shaped by using a bone folder
The Garden Green leaves were added behind the pineapple; the Pear Pizzazz leaves on top of and in front of the pineapple.  Dimensionals were used between the layers.

The sentiment, die cut 3 times using Grapefruit Grove card stock, are adhered together and then added to the reverse side of  a tag made from the Timeless Tropical DSP.  The top was punched with the tag punch, and the bottom edges rounded with the corner rounder punch.  A bow made with the linen thread was added to the top of the tag.

The background piece was matted with Poppy Parade and then added to the card front.

The card base is Poppy Parade, layered with Mango Melody card stock embossed with the Coastal Weave embossing folder. Towards the left side, a strip of Tropical Oasis DSP (hibiscus pattern) was added as well as a 1/2" piece of Poppy Parade ribbon on top of the DSP.

The card was finished by fussy cutting three flowers from the DSP and adding them to the top and bottom of the art piece.  Red Rhinestones were added to the flower centers.
To finish the pineapple, some shimmer crystal effects was added to the edges of the pineapple leaves.

I like how you did the pineaplle's leaves. Also the parts of hibiscus print works so "hawaian"! I like it - a lot.
