Happy Little Strawberries all in a row!

I decided to play along with the Fall-to Layout #29 on the CAS Stamping blog yesterday so am sharing today (since I'll be volunteering at school all day). I am just so thrilled with how this turned out. I hadn't used the Tart & Tangy stamp set in a long time and am glad I thought of it. THe strawberries are inked up with the Old Olive & Ruby Red markers then stamped twice before reinking.

I started out looking at this sketch and, although we didn't have to, I chose to go ahead and make a long card. I still ahve these Long Notes from maybe 2 years ago(?) complete with envelopes so I pulled one out. The red checked paper was already laying on my desk (from the retired Christmas paper pack Holiday Treasures believe-it-or-not!) so used it. The Old Olive twill ribbon is from SU but hasn't been available for quite some time as well (sorry for all the teasers of retired stuff!). You'll be happy to know that all the stamps I used are CURRENT! Think Happy Thoughts, All Holidays and Tart & Tangy.

The eyelet scallop punch and button from the button bouquet are also currently available!!
Thanks for a great sketch- I really enjoyed putting this one together!

  1. Kristin, this is the cutest card ever!! Love how you stamped the strawberries all the way across! I get so lazy about making the stamped image a one thing only focal image, this is awesome! Your piercing along the bottom with the sentiment is perfection too!

  2. So pretty! So wellbalanced and lovely colorcombo! It is so fun to visit your blog and see all the wonderful things you are making.

    Hugs Monica

  3. I laughed when I first saw this, not because it is funn, but I was just at the C&S blog and decided I was going to make a card today with this layout! then I came to your blog next and your card is smiling at me! love this. I love the combo (although I thought it was rose red, instead of ruby red. I was trying to figure out where you got the rose red dp from, lol! Now I know!). Great card!

  4. So many times I forget about stamp sets......this inspires me to pull this one out again. Great card!

  5. This is gorgeous! I love the fresh colour combination, the fancy border, and that cute floral button with the greeting!
