Top Banana

Hi there!  Happy Sunday!  I hope you had a good weekend and you are gearing up for a great week ahead. As I said yesterday, I rarely have time to post over the weekend, but again, I wanted to share  a couple of cards I made with another new set from Create With TLC.  This is a really fun set!

Here is my first card:


My card base and mats are SU Soft Sky and the patterned paper is from the new Authentique Renew 8x8 pad.  The bunch of bananas is an image from the Top Banana set in Paulette's Create With TLC store here.  I printed it on Copic X-Press It and colored it with my Copics.  I cut it out with my Cameo and popped it up on foam tape.  The sentiment is from the same set.   A simple striped ribbon bow finished my card.   Oh, and I used the sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch #178 for my layout.

Here is the sketch:


Here is my second card:


My card base and mats are SU Chocolate Chip and the patterned paper is from the Basic Grey Origins 6x6 pad.  I added some bamboo that I cut with my Cameo out of Gumball Green cardstock using a cut file from the Silhouette Store.  The cute monkey is also from the Top Banana set, as is the fun sentiment.  I colored the monkey with my Copics then cut him out with my Cameo and popped him up.  A rhinestone butterfly finished my simple card.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great evening!  I'll be popping by to visit later tonight or tomorrow morning.

  15. The inner part of the banana looks so realistic. The outside looks great too except the yellow part seems too bright but I'm sure that's my monitor! One of my fave things you've coloured since I started following your blog.

  18. Your cards are gorgeous. Love the coloring of your bananas and great bamboo die cut. I have never seen that die before, but it is perfect. I have been trying to leave a comment all day, but my computer is acting up so sorry it took me so long. I had to get on my iPad.
