A Bowl of Cherries & Today's Video
This is my week 9 challenge, project 2 - Using the Tree Builder Punch.
But first, let me tell you about today's video - please see the last photograph. I really didn't know what to call this and I'm not happy with the title I settled on! It was inspired by a swap I received in Telford last May.
Although I didn't have the same stamp sets as the swap, I did have suitable alternatives.
This is the video link: Torn Flowery Card
If you think the cherries on this card look more like apples, please squint and they'll look like cherries!! LOL!
I started with a Whisper White card base, with a layer of Tip Top Taupe. This was topped with a layer of Whisper White that was embossed using the Zigzag Embossing Folder.
I punched the Tip Top Taupe tag out using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.
I decorated it by stamping in Tip Top Taupe ink using the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set - firstly with the straight line stamp, followed by the small dotty stamp.
The basket was stamped on Whisper White using Tip Top Taupe Ink. The stamp is from the Sprinkles of Life Stamp Set. The handles are from the same set and stamped using the candles.
The cherries were stamped in Real Red Ink on Real Red Card Stock and punched out with the Tree Builder Punch.
I adhered a layer to the tag using Tombow glue and then I adhered another layer using Dimensionals. I also used Dimensionals on the cherries that were falling out of the bowl (basket).
The sentiment is from the Giggle Greetings Stamp Set. The other half of it says "and sometimes it's just the pits!"
I punched the sentiment out using the Washi Tape Punch and layered it onto a piece of Real Red Card Stock punched out with the same punch.
Both the sentiment and the tag were adhered to the card using Dimensionals.
I made the bow using the Tip Top Taupe Dotted Lace Trim. If you really can't convince yourself these are cherries, just change the sentiment and it wont matter what they look like!
Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
