Bucket of berries

Omgosh I am just loving these strawberry images from the PaperTrey Ink set. This card was created only using images from the Green Thumb stamp set. One of my favorite cards ever is one that Amy Rysavy created a few months back with a wheel barrow spilling out flowers. This card was inspired by wheel barrow, but a great planter full of berries.

To start with I stamped the planter on Whisper White cardstock in a brown chalk ink. Then I masked off the bucket and stamped some of the two step strawberries. The red part is warm red chalk ink and the stem is SU!'s Green Galore classic ink. I masked off the berries as well and then stamped a couple of more overlapping them. The last berry was stamped on WW cardstock and then cut out with my paper snips. I mounted it over the others using a dimensional. To finish them up I took some diamond stickles and glitzed up the stems a bit. To finish the image part up I masked off the entire image (berries and the pot) and used a Green Galore marker and my color spritzer tool to created the grass underneath. The final touch for the image piece was to take a black journaler and doodle a frame around the image.

Next I used my ticket corner punch and punched each corner. I mounted this partially on Real Red cardstock and partially on some Green Galore cardstock. Then I punched each of these corners with the ticket corner punch as well.

The card base is Real Red stamped repeatedly with the two sizes of the 2-step strawberries. Then I stamped three sizes of the flower in the set in Green Galore ink on the matching cardstock. I distressed the edge of this piece with my bone folder. I tied a piece of stitched red May Arts ribbon around this piece and then mounted this onto the cardbase and mounted the main image piece over the top.

To finish up this piece I faux stitched around the green piece of cardstock and then stamped the sentiment "Thank you berry much" on the bottom of the green piece with some brown chalk ink. Then I used a mini glue dot to adhere a small piece of the stitched rubbon to the pot.

Loving this set!!! Don't forget you can click on the picture to see a larger image.
