Fruity Stationery Set, Inspired by Crate and Barrel

Paper crafting is a lot more fun when I just accept the fact that I need lots of inspiration must have something to copy and make my own.  I found these small plates in the Crate and Barrel catalog --


And that got me thinking....

Big vegetables
Big fruit
Silhouette

So I made these:


I Make I Talk  Fruity Stationery









 And all wrapped up for a gift (I may give this gift to myself.)


Some of the colored card stock is white, colored with Copics.  Other card stock is Stampin Up, which cuts beautifully in the Silhouette.

Next time I make something like this, I'll make sure that all the images are large enough to fall off the edges.

Yum

MOOD WHEN DONE = Pleased

  5. These are fabulous. How cool to be inspired by those plates. I love your cards, and now want the plates, too. P.S. I just made some envelopes inspired by your previous post. Am typing up your shout out and wanted to say thanks for the inspiration, too.

  6. These are so graphic and fab! I'm exactly the same - nothing scares me more than a blank page in front of me. I love where you've taken these fruits and vegetables! The 'off the edge' feel makes them modern and fun!

  7. I love them, but don't know how you made them. Clipart? Freehand drawing? Stamps? I want some! I guess I will order the plates while waiting for an answer. :)

    1. I'm sorry, I thought I was clear. I used the Silhouette/Cameo to cut out the images. You can find more info on the machine here. http://www.silhouetteamerica.com/

  15. I love the look of bold graphics falling off the page, but I never, ever think to do it. I'm very tied to centered symmetry, and I really need to break out of that rut!
