Sweet Strawberry Floral for Stampers Showcase Blog Hop. Our Theme today is Summer Florals and for me, nothing says ‘Summer’ as much as Strawberries. And for strawberries you need the plants to flower. This is a really quick card to put together and is only slightly stepped up from a Clean and Simple style.
We grow strawberries in our garden and have done for years, but last year they were more than a little disappointing, so we replaced them at the start of this year’s growing season. We were really worried that they may not do well this year because it was so cold and wet in the main growing season, but they have been amazing. But I am guessing you really want to hear about the card, not our Strawberry patch.
I stamped part of the floral image in Tuxedo Black and then die cut it using one of the Layering Circle Dies. A little colouring using So Saffron, Petal Pink and Old Olive and the image was finished. I added extra die cuts behind the White circle, first a scalloped Circle (also from the Layering Circles) in Petal Pink and then large Circular Die from Painted Labels in So Saffron.
To keep the colours I used being tied together I added a mat of Petal Pink and used a So Saffron Card Base, placing a layer of white between for more of a ‘pop’. After adding the image and some of the 2021 – 2023 InColor Jewels to the card front I felt it needed something more, but didn’t want to over power what was already there. I settled on some Wink of Stella Splatters. This is a really subtle finish, but in ‘the flesh’ it makes a huge difference.
