The Spot Challenge #143 - Sketch Challenge with Stampin' Up! Sweet Strawberry Bundle and Berry Blessings SAB Stamp Set

 Hey Friends!  I hope you had a wonderful Christmas weekend and if you are like me, you are ready to say goodbye to 2020!  What a year we've had! The last Card Challenge over at The Spot is a sketch that is super easy to use and sparks lots of creativity!  Check it out!

So many options for this fun sketch, right??

I used the Sweet Strawberry Bundle (Sweet Strawberry Stamp Set and Strawberry Builder Punch from the upcoming January - June 2021 Mini Catalog along with the Sale-A-Bration Bundle (Berry Blessing Stamp Set and Berry Delightful DSP! Both of these bundles are available to Demonstrators to preorder now and will be available to Customs on January 5th.  The SAB bundle is free with a $100 purchase and it is soooo good!  many of the Strawberry images from the DSP will punch out with the Strawberry Builder Punch!  Both of these bundles are must haves in my humble opinion!

Fun card, right?  My card base is a 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" half sheet of Thick Whisper White Cardstock that was scored at 4 1/4" for a top folding landscape card.  I adhered a strip of the fun SAB Berry Delightful DSP onto a panel of Garden Green Cardstock and then used a Stitched Rectangle Die to cut the panel out.  The blueberry image was stamped on a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock by first stamping the outline of the leaves in full strength Garden Green Ink and then stamping the fill in with Garden Green that had been stamped off for a 2nd generation inking.  The blueberry outline was then stamped in Pacific Point Ink full strength and then the fill in image was 2nd generation Pacific Point.  I stamped the Sentiment with Pacific Point and then used the largest of the Stitched Shape Dies Circle Die to cut it out.  I used the Layering Circle Dies to cut out a large Pacific Point Scallop Circle to matt the Stitched Circle Die. On more scrap Whisper White, I stamped the Strawberry from the Sweet Strawberry Stamp Set in Poppy Parade full strength for the outline and 2nd generation for the fill.  The leaf and the top to the strawberry were both stamped in Granny Apple Green for the outline and filled with 2nd generation for the fill.  Both the large and small flower were stamped using Pacific Point for the outline and then filled in with 2nd generation fill images.  I used the Strawberry Punch for the Strawberry Parts and the small flower and used the Medium Bloom Punch for the larger flower.  The strawberry and leaf were added to the Stitched Circle using Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive and the flowers were popped up with Mini Dimensionals.  I ran some linen thread around the DSP layer and let it slightly layer over the edge of my circle die cut.  To finish up my card front I added three Poppy Parade Embellishments from the All the Trimmings Embellishments (currently on clearance from the Holiday Catalog).  

Here's the inside of my card..

I started with a Stitched Rectangle Panel of Whisper White Cardstock.  I stamped the Blueberry image the same way as I did on the outside of the card but for the strawberry, I punched all of the parts out from the Berry Delightful DSP.  The Strawberry was adhered with multipurpose liquid glue onto the panel.  The sentiment was stamped in Pacific Point Ink and the panel was then adhered with Stampin' Seal Adhesive.  Simple and pretty I think.  

If you aren't accustomed to using sketches to kick start your creativity, I hope you'll give this one a try.  I can't wait to see what you come up with!  Blessings, Tina
