Red Ribbon Strawberries!



I've been playing again with my new PaperTrey Green Thumb stamps. They are SOOOOO cute, I can't even stand it! Be sure to head over to Nichole's blog to check out the behind the scenes stories she's been telling about the business. So interesting!

So who loves polka dots? I do and I just love the polka dot accents on these juicy strawberries. Nichole was brilliant in her two step strawberry designs. I've always wanted a strawberry that had the stem and berry parts separate...voila, here it is, and in two sizes! I used Daisy D's new red/polka dot paper on these two cards to create the topper and the *ribbon* accents. These strawberries would definitely earn ribbons at the fair, don't ya think? I also created stamped polka dots on both cards using various size circles from PaperTrey sets. And of course, I had to stamp matching envelopes. Can't wait to send these off! Enjoy your Easter weekend everyone....have a blessed day!

Tip of the day: To add some dimension to a focal piece (the double strawberry images), stamp one strawberry on the base piece of cardstock. Then stamp the stem of the second strawberry on the base piece also. Stamp a second strawberry on a scrap piece of paper, then cut it out and adhere with dimensionals(foam sticky dots). This creates even more of a focal point. And by stamping the stem first on the base piece of cardstock, you don't have to worry about cutting out those intricate stems.
