Stampin' Up! Sweetest Cherries ~ Handmade Card


Did you know that Stampin' Up! is getting ready to retire several items with their 2022-2023 Annual Catalog?  Thankfully, this Sweetest Cherries stamp set is NOT one of those items!  With several different image stamps and even more sentiments, and many ways of combining them, this is a stamp set I'm happy to see staying for another year! 

While the stamps are staying, some of these colors are not, in fact, the Polished Pink Stampin' Pad is already gone, gone, gone.  I love this pink, though, so I decided to use it here on my blog one last time, as a farewell!  lol  Pear Pizzazz is also retiring with this catalog, however, it's still available as I write this post (and ON SALE!!)  

For the stripes, I used a Water Painter and Pear Pizzazz ink to create stripes on Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  To, sort of, keep the stripes straight, I used my Grid Paper as a guide.  The Grid Paper also worked to keep my desktop clean as I painted off the cardstock. 

The 'Happy birthday' sentiment used inside the card is from a retiring stamp set, Shaded Summer.  As of right this minute, it is still available!  Shaded Summer is another great stamp set, with beautiful, yet simple, floral images and amazing sentiments.  (This 'happy birthday' stamp was probably one of my most used stamps the last couple of years)

Thanks so much for visiting my blog. 
Happy Stamping!
