Cherry Blossoms and Pineapples

I have a couple more Frantic Stamper cards to share with you.  Both of them were inspired by this beautiful place I live.  The first card is a CAS card featuring the Pineapple (FRA-DIE-09937) and the Brooklyn Alphabet dies (FRA-DIE-10415).  I colored the pineapple with distress oxide inks and made it the focal point of the card.  Aloha was cut 5 times and layered for some added dimension.  This was a pretty quick and easy card to make.

As a side note, hereʻs a picture of our real pineapple patch.  They are getting close to being big enough to eat! 

The second card features Large Kokeshi Paper Doll (FRA-DIE-10569) and Cherry Blossom Branch (FRA-DIE-09333).  The cherry blossoms were colored with distress ink and Nuvo Drops.  The paper dolls dress was made with some very old, authentic wash paper from my stash.  I love the way she looks in it.  You can't tell in the picture, but her sash and fan are actually gold metallic paper which gives a nice shine.

Iʻll finish this post off with the beautiful piece of a rainbow I saw on my walk today.  Praying you all are doing well!
