Gettin' Fruity!

Hi all! Hope your week is sailing to a nice finish! I have another Stamp Simply challenge for you courtesy of the fabulous Sharon Johnson! This time we look to those lucious fruits that ripen on the vine this time of year!

It's time for ssnotime97! You can get the official details HERE but to break it down for you - all you need to do is whip up some type of fruity creation!

So, here's what I whipped up!


I absolutely love these new Strawberries from Flourishes and I absolutely love this new paper from BasicGrey! It's called June Bug and the patterns inside are just ADORABLE! I got mine as a gift from a very nice lady affectionately called the "Fleckster" :-) but you can find it right HERE if you like!

I stamped my berries in permanent black ink and then used the Poppy Collection and Spring Greens Copic Collections from Flourishes to color up these sweeties! FYI: These collections are sold out but... I'm told.. more are on the way and they will be in the store soon! After coloring, I used a 1-1/4" circle punch to punch out my berries and I matted them up with a scalloped circle punched from a SU punch. I also took the little flower from the set, stamped it, colored it up and cut it out to add a little pizazz to my berries. I love how this turned out! I even added some Stickles to the centers of the flowers for a little razzle dazzle.

You might notice, the card size is a bit smaller. I have some of those "banker envelopes" and wanted to use that style for this card - so my card is only 6 by 3". It's really a fun size! From there, add some fun buttons, a punched border edge, and a sweet sentiment and... done!

Here's a close of of that darling little flower!
