Well, we are into the 90's again today and the thunder storms are to start up again! Oh, Boy!!! I should lose some weight today as I always pace throughout the house when the storms move in. They freak me out!
My share for today is a card I designed using Stampin' Up's new Fresh Fruit and Layering Love Stamp Sets and Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper.
Let's take a look:
I LOVE this Designer Series Paper!!! It already looks water colored and I didn't have to lift my Aqua Painter Brush! =) All the work is done for you!
My card base is SU's Always Artichoke Cardstock cut at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" scored and folded at 4-1/4".
The strawberry piece of DSP was cut at 2-1/4" x 5-1/4" and the striped DSP was cut at 1-1/2" x 5-1/4". Both were adhered to my card base using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.
Using SU's new Layering Love Stamp Set, I stamped my sentiment in SU's Basic Black Archival Ink. I then die cut it out using SU's new Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.
Using my SU 1/16" Handheld Circle Punch, I punched two small holes at the top center of the scalloped circle. I pulled a long thread from SU's new 5/8" Burlap Ribbon, thread it through the two holes and tied it into a bow. I like this technique as it keeps the bow looking better and secured better than using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.
I adhered the scalloped oval to my card base using Stampin' Dimensionals.
I adhered one of SU's new Real Red Circle Enamel Shapes to the center of the bow and a Real Red Heart Enamel Shape to the bottom of the scalloped circle.
For the inside of my card, I stamped another of the sentiments from SU's new Layering Love Stamp Set onto Whisper White Cardstock and die cut it out with the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.
I die cut a larger oval from Real Red Cardstock and adhered the white scalloped oval to the center of it and then to the inside of my card using Mono-Multi Purpose Glue.
I stamped two strawberries in Real Red Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock, fussy cut them out and colored around the edges with SU's Real Red Stampin' Write Marker.
I stamped two strawberry caps in Always Artichoke Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock, fussy cut those out also and colored around the edges with SU's Always Artichoke Stampin' Write Marker.
I colored in the seeds on the strawberries using SU's Crushed Curry Stampin' Write Marker.
I adhered the caps to the strawberries and to the inside of my card using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.
Above is a picture of my embellished jar of homemade strawberry jam that I posted on my blog yesterday! My card that I shared today and this jar of jam was mailed out to my Good Friend and Fellow Stampin' Up Demonstrator, Kadie. Enjoy Kadie!
That's all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
