Welcome to the February West Coast Creators team blog hop! This month, we will all be sharing birthday projects using Stampin’ Up products. I’ve made 2 projects using the very cute Sweet Strawberry Bundle (#156214) from the Jan – Jun Mini Catalogue. If you haven’t seen it yet, you can access it here!
This bundle comes with a berry themed stamp set, which includes several 2-step stamps (strawberry. flower and leaf) and a coordinating strawberry builder punch.
Both projects use the same sketch (i.e. same general layout) which shows you the various ways you can use this set and layout, just by changing up a few things.
This card uses a background with a water colouring technique, that I’ll call “the splat”! I used Shimmery White cardstock (#101910) which is perfect for all types of water colour. I soaked a sponge dauber (#133733) with water and Bermuda Bay ink (the more the better) and created various “splats” on the paper.
The rest of the card uses the stamps and punch in Poppy Parade and Daffodil Delight. The sentiment was heat embossed in White on a black rectangle stitched shape.
Here is version 2 of the card, which I designed for our WCC team swap. It’s very similar, except that I replaced the spats with a strip of DSP, from the Berry Delightful DSP which can be earned with the current Sale-a-Bration promotion.
This card uses Garden Green as the base and sentinment . Instead of stamping the flowers, I punched them straight from Coastal Cabana and Mango Melody card stock after embossing them with the Subtle folder (#151775).
