Juicy Strawberries!


Hello Everyone!  Have I got a mouthwatering card for you today featuring.... Juicy Strawberries!  Say hello to one of the latest digis from Power Poppy which includes an image and two sentiments!  This pretty image was begging to be coloured up ASAP and I loved being able to sit down and happily colour away - it's amazing how soothing and relaxing it can be!  I'm sure you ALL know what I'm talking about!  :)  Now there is a double lot of excitement for you - did you miss the Instant Garden Release that was supposed to happen on 15th April?  Well......we were running a wee bit late, so today there are TWO releases and the Bloom Brigade are joining the Instant Gardeners as we show them off to you!!  Make sure you pop by the other blogs to find out what the other one is!

I've used a base of Wild Wasabi and layered with cream card.  I've sized the Juicy Strawberries image, printed it out on X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (G20, G21, G24, G28, R30, R32, R35, R37, Y00, E40, E21, E23, E25, B0000, B000, B91).  It's been cut out with Labels 8 and matted with Kraft cut with Decorative Labels 8.  Around this I've attached some taupe gingham ribbon.  The sentiment from Juicy Strawberries has also been sized and printed out, cut with Large Circle Nestabilities and airbrushed while still in the die with B01 Copic and then popped up on X-press It Foam Tape.  To finish I've added a couple of buttons!

Stamps - Juicy Strawberries (Power Poppy)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Wild Wasabi, Cream, Kraft
Ink - Printer
Accessories - Copics, Spellbinders Large Circle, Labels 8 and Decorative Labels 8 Dies, Taupe Gingham Ribbon, Copic Airbrush System, Buttons

Don't miss ALL the girls from the Bloomies and the Instant Gardeners who have some gorgeous new cards to show off with these two new digis!!  Oh, and say HELLO to our dear friend Dina Kowal who is also joining us today!!

That's all from me today, thanks for popping by and hope you are inspired to stamp!  :)

Oh, Kathy, what an absolutely gorgeous card! Your coloring is amazing and just blows me away! I love the depth and scrumptious looking strawberries, and what a great idea to ground this little plant and use a matching decorative die. I love it! Beautifully done, and sending you big squooshy hugs, my friend!

Hi Kathy girl. I just love how you colored this image. I love the bit of green on the berries and the leaves are tremendous. So beautiful girly.
