Cherry the Moment

This is the last week to see fabulous samples from the Sheetload of Cards and the Cutting Cafe DT using the sketch from the Sheetload of Cards June issue.

My second sample uses the Fruit Greetings printable stamp set (here is a link to my watermelon card). I love working with digi files because they are so easy to manipulate (I'll have to put a tutorial on how to work with digi-stamps one of these days). Recognize the patterned paper??? This is the same paper I used for my apple shaped card (seen here). This paper was fun to use with the cherries. I paper pieced the cherries, watercolored the stems, and added some bling bling. The sentiment is computer generated using a font called Orange (what'd ya know - a fruity font to go with a fruity card- LOL). I used the SU slit punch to make the green border on the side. As an added embellie, I used a pop can tab as a slider for my ribbon. When I first started stamping, I started collecting pop can tabs and never really used on a card (only on the very first altered mini clipboards I made as gifts). I try to be as frugal as I can with my supplies and I give a thumbs up for anything I can use that I have around the house.

Don't miss the other DT gals creations this week!!! Thanks for coming by!

How fun to print out the image on DP! Plaid and cherries are perfect together -- it reminds me of a summer pinic!
