Berry Thank You - Stampin' Up! Berry Blessings - Fab Friday 209

   The team at Fab Friday is back with another fantastic challenge!  We have a great sketch this time and can't wait to see how you interpret it!

  Fun right?  I decided to flip my card because I couldn't get a sentiment to look right with the portrait layout so landscape it is!

  I saw this color combination on a bedding set in a catalog and tore it out to remember to try on a card.  I like the neutral background using the same stamps as I did for the focal image grouping.

  Once I got the background stamped I used the Layering Square dies to cut the Whisper White panel and then accented it with the Stitched with Whimsy dies.  I backed that with a piece of Misty Moonlight.

  The berry sprigs are stamped in Misty Moonlight and Bumblebee and then fussy cut.  It really doesn't take much time at all so don't be intimidated to try!  I layered them on the square panel to mimic the little flags in the sketch and then popped the whole thing on dimensionals.  

  The sentiment from Sweet Strawberry was the perfect size to stamp to the right of the berries.  I used my dark Gray Granite Blends marker to color a length of crinkled seam binding ribbon to tie into a bow to adhere to the stems.

  Check out what the Fab Friday Design Team has for you for inspiration and then play along!

  1. Isn't it funny the things that inspire us? The bedding certainly did the trick here Amanda - I love the way you highlighted the bright berries against the neutral background stamping. A great take on the sketch too!


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
