Sweet Strawberries

Hey there.

This week's challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog is Let's get Fruity. I love to create bright summery cards so fruit fits right in!

I started by trimming my pattern paper then stamping the border in Green Hills shadow ink. I stamped my strawberries on the pattern paper panel before adding some twine. I knew I was going to fussy cut the strawberries (duh! I fussy cut everything, it's a disease!!) but I wanted the stems to show. Stamping on the paper and adhering your cut out piece on top is an easy way to preserve those more delicate parts of your stamp. 

I stamped the strawberry twice on white paper, colored with copics and trimmed them out. I adhered the first strawberry with one layer of dimensional adhesive. To add some more dimension I added the second strawberry with two layers of dimensional adhesive. I wanted the "sweeter" to pop on the card so I traced around it with the lightest copic color I used to color the strawberries. Once I trimmed the sentiment into a banner I added it with even more dimensional adhesive.

Thanks for stopping by my "sweet" friends! hehehehe


  1. Love your bright card, Kelly. The yellow stripe is great touch.

  2. Gorgeous card Kelly :-) I love the green stamped border, I thought it was washi tape at first,,, and the sparkly strawberries with the twine and fab sentiment are perect ! :-)

  3. Wonderful stamped border. I thought it was washi tape. Those strawberries look like they were dipped in sugar, and I love where they are stamped on your card. Great idea to highlight the word, "sweeter". I'll have to remember that!

  4. This is adorable... LOVE these colors... so fresh and summery. And I agree that the strawberries look like they've been sugar-dipped.. SO cool! Thanks for playing along... :)

  5. What a sweet card! The strawberries look yummy and I love the washi tape you added!
