Using the Sweet Strawberry Bundle, I created a full-size card, a 3″ x 3″ card, and a treat box (with the Love You Always Treat Box). To create the strawberries for each project, I added a quick wash of water to a piece of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper, using a Water Painter. I then used the Water Painter to add the color. (With the lid of my Melon Mambo Classic Stampin’ Pad closed, I pressed the lid against the ink pad so that there was a residue of ink left in the lid, then opened the ink pad and use the Water Painter to pick up the ink from the lid.) To create the paper for the stems, I repeated the steps above, using my Granny Apple Green Classic Stampin’ Pad. To quickly dry the paper, I used a Heat Tool.

I used the Strawberry Builder Punch (from the Sweet Strawberry Bundle) to punch out the strawberries and the stems from my watercolored paper. The textured background was created with the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder, and layered with Smoky Slate Cardstock underneath.  

The sentiments (from the Sweet Strawberry Bundle), were heat-embossed using a Versamark Pad and Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder. For the backgrounds on each project, I used the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.

To add a bit of texture and bling to my projects, I used Blushing Bride Twine from the Snail Mail Trim Combo Pack, and sprinkled on a few Opal Rounds.          

Wishing you creativity always,

The 2020-2021 catalog is sooooo jam-packed with soooooo many amazing stamps sets, accessories, and more….and I know your wish list will be overflowing before you know it!
