We Interrupt This Program......

Oh goodness. The craft road of realism is paved with good intentions and paper scraps. I totally got sidelined and distracted on my Giraffe Week, which I will continue in a few days. It's what happens when new stuff comes in your mail!

Today I played with the new Stampin' Up! Sunshine Wishes dies and Sunshine Sayings stamp set.
You can find them HERE on my website!
This Bundle of stamps and dies was second on my wish list when the new catalog came out. First on the list was this gorgeous Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper and the matching Fresh Fruit stamp set, which I will be getting out tomorrow.

I cut a piece of the designer paper the same size as the front of my card base, and then rounded the bottom corners on each side. Next up was a panel of striped watermelon paper (also in the pack). I made scallops using my Slit Punch and adhered those to the stripes. A little shipping tag and some swiss dots organza ribbon from my stash were perfect for my two dies cut from Peekaboo Peach and Watermelon Wonder cardstock. I stamped the little sentiment "& HUGS" in Archival Black ink. 
Two Prima flowers were added for embellishments because they already were on my table and matched!

This Bundle is going to get a lot of use. There are so many sentiments for every occasion!
