Making Fruit Slices with Watermelon Slice Die-namics - MFT Tips & Tricks

May 14, 2019

Hi everyone! It's time for a Tips & Tricks feature on the MFT blog. Today I'm going to share a few ideas for making fruit slices using the newly released Watermelon Slice Die-namics.

Needless to say, the Watermelon Slice Die-namics is meant to be used to make watermelon slices. LOL! But, I saw more possibilities in it. 

First I created orange slices with the masking & inking technique. I'll post a video below to show you how to make them. Simply change the ink color to make lemon or lime slices. ;)

To create my card, I partially stamped a Smooth White panel with the Itsy Bitsy Polka Dots Background using Limelight Premium Dye Ink, added two slices of orange and a die-cut "Sweet", and stamped a sentiment from the Sweet Sentiments stamp set. I added a mat of Limelight CS and adhered to the card base. Several Round Drops finished off the card.

For my second card, I created apple slices. It's quite simple! Just die cut the elements and put them together, I cut the peel a little to make it thinner though.
I stamped the card front with the Itsy Bitsy Polka Dots Background, added a Stitched Rectangle Scallop Edge Frame and a Stitched Ric Rac border, then adhered the apple slices. The "Thanks" was cut with the Simply Thanks Die-namics and "For being so sweet" is from the Sweet Sentiments stamp set.

For my third card, I created a melon slice. Is this type of melon called cantaloupe? We commonly call it "melon" in Japan. 
I cut a Stitched Mini Scallop Square panel and stamped it with the Itsy Bitsy Polka Dots Background using Peach Bellini Premium Dye Ink. I adhered it to a Limelight panel along with a piece of tiny check patterned paper, added a Coral Crush panel, and adhered to the card base. I attached the melon slice with foam tape and used the seed pieces as drops of juice. The sentiment is from the Sweet Nothings stamp set and I replaced the word "Million" with "Melon" using the Mini Well-Connected Alphabets & Numbers stamp set. I heat embossed it on Coral Crush CS and added the shadows with a Copic Marker (R22) to make it pop up. I cut it out with the Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics.
