A Patriotic Berry SSS09

I saw this sketch, and I had to try it. It is a pretty easy sketch with a slight twist. I created this for The Sweet Stop challenge this week. This is a great new challenge blog started by the Sweet and Sassy Company. I decided to play along using a new Angel Company stamp set I got this week. The twist was to use the colors red, white, and blue. Here is the sketch...
Here is what I came up with...
I used the strawberry stamp from the TAC June rewards set Fruit Collages. This set is available at a discounted price with any $30 purchase during the month of June. You can also earn it for FREE as a hostess this month with a $250 party. There are also 2 other sets available with this promotion this month as well. You can check them out HERE. Anyway, I used red palette ink to stamp the strawberry onto white cardstock. The then cut along the boarder and layered it on blue. I didn't really have any DSP that I liked with the red and blue I already had, so I decided to use another piece and make my own. As I was embossing the paper I remembered why I love my cuttlebug sooooo much! I used a fiskers embossing plate called basket weave. I then layered that piece on some red cardstock. The buttons are from my mom's old button tin. I am loving the old button tin...so many "treasures" in there! I used some thin red ribbon along the bottom, as well as threading some in the buttons. The sentiment is from the TAC set Ordinary Greetings.
Well that is it for now. Thanks so much for stopping by. I finally have all my cubes together for my organizers. They are all set up...now I need to get all my supplies into them. I started and did a couple things, but WOW...I was so overwhelmed. Who knew I had so much stamping stuff...ha ha ha.
