Mona is our challenge hostess today. She asked us to use a fruit image on our project. I had to use the strawberry image. Ever since I can remember, on my birthday my Mom would make the first strawberry cake of the season. I continued this tradition (except for this year….I need to loose some pounds and that cake does not help with that.).

I stamped the big image of the Strawberries stamp set twice in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on white cardstock, colored it with Copic Markers (Strawberries YG03, R08, R24, R29, R39    Flowers: Y21, Y35, Y38, T0, T3   Leaves: YG01, YG03, YG17   Background: B0000, B000) and cut and embossed with a Standard Circle Nestabilities die. Part of one image was adhered on top of the other. The circle was adhered to a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with the largest Splendid Circles Nestabilities die.

Two pieces of Bo Bunny Country Garden Patterned Paper were cut and embossed with a Grand Rectangle Nestabilities die. The edges were sanded and stitched and May Arts Ribbon was tied around around the vertical strip. The layers were adhered to the card base, white cardstock cut and embossed with a Grand Label 23 die.

A sentiment from the Strawberries set was stamped in Tuxedo Black Ink on a piece of white cardstock cut and embossed with a die from the Home Sweet Home die pack. The embossed part was colored with Copic Markers B0000 and B000 before the tag was tied to the bow with embroidery thread and a button. Want2scrap bling finish off the card.

Take a peek at what the other Timeless Tuesday designer have created for today…

I hope you have time to play. This time you have a chance to win all of the new stamps that are being released this week. And let me tell you, you will want those stamps!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles
