Sweet Strawberry Hello

Hello There!  I hope your weekend is kicking off with a sweet start!  Isn't this (Sale-A-Bration) Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!, well...delightful!  (See what I did there!? 😁)  This DSP pairs perfectly with the Sweet Strawberry stamp set.  Don't miss your chance to get it...February 28th (Sunday) is the last day to order and get Sale-A-Bration rewards. 

This card was inspired by Challenge #408 at CAS Colours & Sketches.  

Today's card looks like it has a lot going on, but I think that is mainly because the DSP has a lot happening.  This stamp set is a 'Two-step stamping set', which just means there is an outline stamp for each image and a stamp that will color in that outline.  So, stamping and punching each image was really pretty quick.  It helps that this is a cling stamp set, so it is clear.  Being able to see through the stamps makes it much easier to line them up.   

When I stamped the strawberries, I stamped the outline in Cherry Cobbler, then stamped the more solid stamp in Poppy Parade. I really like how this stamp is designed to make the strawberry look like I did some shading while coloring it in.  For the flower and stems, I stamped the outline with full color, then stamped the more solid stamps after stamping off on a scrap piece of paper first.  

Want to know a secret?  I wasn't sure what I was going to do with the flower when I stamped it.  Then, I somehow got a bit of red ink on the corner of the leaves on the right strawberry.  I didn't want to stamp and punch another one, so I decided to just cover it with the flower!  I like how it turned out.  Do you? 

The inside of the card is simply decorated with a left over strip of the DSP.  

I hope you are inspired to be creative today.  Happy Stamping!
