Fresh Fruit Trio

I only purchased this set yesterday yet it was another one that was on my wish list.

I did have a play around initially and thought that maybe I had a faulty stamp until I tried the others and realised that it was how it’s meant to be! I did have the after aches of a migraine, well that’s my excuse anyway?.

So the card, base is thick Whisper White, which I have actually started using instead of the normal WW. It just makes the cards stand a little sturdier.

I used Peekaboo Peach and Pumpkin Pie on the peach, with Pear Pizzazz on the leaves. Ironically I used Pear Pizzazz and Wild Wasabi on the Pear, with Tip Top Taupe for the leaves. The Strawberry is Watermelon Wonder and Real Red with Old Olive for the leaves. The flowers are So Saffron and Crushed Curry and the sentiment is Perfect Plum. Shame there aren’t any plums.?

This cheeky little peach is C.A.S.E’d from the catalogue. It looked so cute that I just had to make one and it’s so simple.

Using the 2″ circle punch I punched 8 circles in, of course, Peekaboo Peach and scored them down the centre. I then worked my way round adhering was side to the next circle and continued until they all stuck together. I took a length of Chocolate Chip cardstock, rolled it up as tight as I could, placed adhesive along one edge to hold it in place and put it down the centre of the ‘peach’. The leaf is from Flower Fair Framelits and cut out of Pear Pizzazz card stock.

The crate was also C.A.S.E’d from the catalogue but the actual dimensions are from the lovely Jackie Topa who owns Addicted to Stamping and I just love how it looks, so I had to make one of those too.

I used Kraft card stock for this as it is a little thicker but you could use other card stock. The main piece, which is the ends and base, are from card stock measuring 9″ x 3″ and then scored at 2.5″ and 6.5″.

To give the wood effect I used the Hardwood stamp and Tip Top Taupe, which I also sponged round the edges. The handles were created with the Classic Label punch. I actually put the punch on, which lines up perfectly with the sides of the punch, then put the punch up to the score line and punched.

Next you will need 4 strips of Kraft card measuring 1″ x 5″. Stamp them and sponge edges then score 0.5″ on each end. Add Tear n Tape (or Tombo if you prefer) and adhere to the crate.

As a final bit of decoration I added a Delicate White Doily on each side and a piece of the fruit stand DSP.

These crates are by no means strong or sturdy but wouldn’t they be grate for party favours or cupcake boxes for a themed party? I love them all.

Happy Crafting and see you all tomorrow.
