morestrawberries2stamp {The Stamps of Life}

Hey there crafty friends! I have a zillion projects to share with you today, so let's get right to it! Remember the super cute strawberries2stamp set from The Stamps of Life that I shared with you on July 1st? Well, I warned you. . . .and today is the day! morestrawberries2stamp has hit the TSOL store! This set coordinates with the first one - more patterns, more sweetness and more sentiments!

In the project above, I die cut a little bitty gift card and stamped the dotted strawberry. It is ADORABLE. In the card below, I played with the dry erase card stock from Die Cuts with a View. It's actual dry erase PAPER. So I decided to make a little mini-dry erase board, and mount it onto a card. I attached a mini dry-erase marker on there, and if desired, the recipient can pull the dry erase board right off the card and stick it on the wall. (The loop on the top of the bow is perfect for hanging. A frame from Fancy Pants was the perfect size to mat my dry erase board, and I used some patterned papers from Lawn Fawn's Peace Joy Love collection. (Christmas paper, fun huh!?)

Next up, I die cut a bunch of strawberries, and I created a little berry basket. I just kind of fiddled around and created the basket, after looking at some online. There might just be an easier way, coming soon though. (Just sayin'.) 

And last, but not least - I stamped the berry and stem in a pool of watercolor, and then I went back with a paint brush and added some extra shading. It was fun to play with paint!

So there you have it! morestrawberries2stamp! The design team will be adding a ton of great samples to the gallery, so be sure to stop by and check it out, along with the other new stamps! (You'll have to head on over to see what they are - I'm serious though, one of the other sets is going to be a new go-to stamp set for me! EEEK!) In the coming weeks, I'll share some more projects with you. . . .don't be a stranger! xoxo

What fun projects! I love the technique you used for inking the strawberry on the last card.
