My first card today uses Cover Up: Hexagons with Forest Floor: Summer. I've also got a peek at Betsy's newest Noted: Pinked Edge A2 die collection in here as well.
Next up, I have a card using the strawberries from Forest Floor: Summer. We have these tiny strawberries in our yard during the summer and they make me smile from the moment they start popping up all over the place. I couldn't help but turn them into a stamp!
I began by stamping and die cutting the strawberry stem onto Rustic White cardstock. I used Melon Berry and Berry Sorbet to get the gradient of color on the berry and then used Pure Poppy to add the seeds. You could also heat emboss the seeds with a contrasting powder if you wanted them to be lighter.
I stamped the leafy stem onto a Rustic White panel that I had cut with a Noted: Simply Stitched rectangle. I followed up with the frame stamped in True Black and a sentiment from Pitter Patterns stamped in Pure Poppy. I matted that layer with a piece of Harvest Gold cardstock and set it aside for a moment.
Next, I stamped a Noted: Pinked Edge card base with the Background Basics: Super Gingham in Pure Poppy. I adhered the sentiment panel and tied a Rustic Jute Twine bow around the card base. Then, I attached the strawberry stem to the card front with foam tape. The card still needed a little something, so I stamped and die cut the little ladybug from Forest Floor: Summer and added her to the strawberry leaf with foam tape. I'm smitten!
And last, but certainly not least, is Betsy's new Seasonal Borders: Summer stamp set. This one features a beautiful array of tropical leaves and flowers that you're going to love!
That's all I have for you today. I hope you've enjoyed today's post!
