A Little Basket of Strawberries


Happy Wednesday, peeps!  This is a crazy busy week, so this will be short and sweet!  No challenges, I was just looking for something I could create that would put my new Blends to work, and I realized I had never inked up the little strawberry image from Basket of Wishes!  So here is my simple card:


I used Memento ink on Shimmery White cardstock and colored it in with Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Crumb Cake and Bronze Blends; I used the Color Lifter pen to take out a tiny little bit of ink from each strawberry for a highlight:


For my background, I inked up the Hardwood stamp with White Craft ink and stamped it on a mat of Wild Wasabi, then stamped the sentiment in Wild Wasabi as well.  After die-cutting, I added a Crumb Cake ribbon and mounted it on a Early Espresso base!  The sentiment on the inside (forgot to photo it!) says "Sending a basket full of wonderful wishes for your birthday"!  Isn't that a sweet sentiment!  I love it!

No pix of Cassidy today but I thought I would share a little note she wrote to herself so she could remember the names she chose for her little playhouse dogs:


We have "Frito" - Big D (dalmatian), Spot - Small D Sitting, Chedoe (Cheeto) - Small D Standing; then Brownie - Big G (golden retriever), Goldy - Small G Standing, and Doritoe (Dorito) - Small G Sitting.  Too funny!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Love your card and your blending is perfect. I rarely use my white craft ink. There is something about it that I don't like, one reason being the time it takes to dry! Cassidy is a riot. This picture is a treasure. We have a basket of strawberries from Plant City, FL and boy are they delicious. Have a great day.

Very pretty card and nice job using your Blends on that image! I love that stamp set but always forget to pull it out and ink it up! Love your Hardwood background done in white, too! So simple yet so pretty, too! Love the names of Cassidy's pet doggys! So cute! TFS and have a great day, LeAnne! :)
