The new Papertrey set...

is so flippin' cute!! If you haven't seen it yet run over to their site to get yourself a peek. The set is called Green Thumb and is "A"dorable!

To begin with, I stamped the bottom piece of the strawberry with warm red chalk ink all over the Whisper White cardstock in a random pattern. After that I inked up the stem (yes...they do come in two pieces, how cool is that??) with pastel olive chalk ink. Then I punched out one of them with the small SU! tag punch and mounted it on to a piece of Real Red cardstock punched with the large SU! tag punch. I punched a whole in the top with my 1/8th inch circle punch and tied a bow with some white polka dot organdy ribbon that I got from Cindy at Starlit Studio.

The card base is Real Red stamped with the warm red chalk ink and two of the small circle stamps from the Green Thumb set. Then I took a strip of Old Olive cardstock and punched it with my slit punch to make the scalloped edge, and dotted it with my Signo white gel pen. I mounted this slightly under strip of strawberry stamped piece. I mounted this on the card, and then stamped the sentiment "Thank you Berry Much" also from this set on the bottom corner in Whisper White craft ink.
