Stamp Something Challenge 11

Good morning and Happy Friday! Lauren is hosting this weeks Stamp Something Challenge. The theme is "The Sweetest Thing". You can stamp candy, alter candy, make candy, eat candy, lol. Anything that involves sweets!

For this challenge I made a pull out card. Since the sweetest stamps I have are fruit, I decided to use skittles and decorate with fruit stamps. You pull the ribbon and the skittles come up. You can see the tutorial HERE on SCS. The piece of cardstock I used was 6.5 X 6 though (Scored at 3 and at 6). I wanted to stick with the skittles flavors for the fruit so I used Tart & Tangy for the lemon, orange and strawberry, and the grape is from an ancient set call Grapes. The grape is supposed to be bigger than it is, but I cut out part of it to make a little more in more in proportion with the other fruit. I didn't want to use the branch or leaves that are in the Grapes set because it would take up too much space, and the look isn't right, so I used part of the cherry stem in Tart & Tangy. The fruit is all popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals, and the Real Red piece is popped up with glue dots.
