Sweet Strawberries and Gingham

Okay so this is two cases thrown into one card. And, for the life of me I can't remember who either of the cards were from....I'm sorry. If it's you, let me know and I will give you the credit due you.

How cute is that gingham? But Stampin Up doesn't have any gingham DSP you say? That's because that is a piece of whisper white cardstock turned into gingham. Cool huh? I took my new stripes embossing folder and brayer with some Lucky Limeade ink and inked up my brayer. Tip: make sure you ink up the side with the stampin up logo on it.

I inked up the embossing folder and ran my paper through the Big Shot once, then inked it up again, turned my paper 180 degrees and then ran the paper through the Big Shot again. And this cute gingham is what I got.

I just love this technique. Probably because I like gingham. It just says happy and summer to me. Then I used the new Berry Blossoms DSP and the Fruit and Flowers stamp set for the inside. My cute little strawberry is punched from the Heart punch with some Calypso Coral.I think this card is "berry" sweet.
Thanks for peeking in today.
Have an amazing day today.


  1. Totally awesome-sauce!!

    I saw both techniques and had the pictures saved in my "to do" file. The strawberry is from Sara Hoogendoorn, and the gingham is from Mary Fish. Great minds think alike, lol!!
