I fell in love with Stampin' Up!'s A Cherry on Top stamp set when I first saw it! This set has so many possibilities, and I have already used it and used it. But I believe that this will be the first time that I have shared one of those cards with you.
For the color combinations, I started with colors that are actually some of my favorite Christmas card colors, Bashful Blue and Real Red. I love these colors together and if you take off the rhinestones, this card be a card for a man/woman/boy/girl, anything.
Now this set is a hostess set, so let me tell you how you can go about getting it from me. First, you can gather up some of your stamping friends and you can have a book party. To do that, you simply gather up orders from your friends, we combine them and when it is over $150 in merchandise, this awesome set can be on it's way to your house. The second way is that when you order that much on your own, you can grab this set too.
When I pick out stamps, they have to be versatile. And this one is for sure! I love that this could be used on scrapbook pages as well as cards.
So let me show you my A Cherry On Top card:
Stampin' Up! Ink: Bashful Blue, Real Red
Stampin' Up! Markers: Bashful Blue, Real Red, Wild Wasabi
Stampin' Up! Cardstock: Bashful Blue, Real Red, Whisper White
Stampin' Up! Accessories: Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Scallop Border Punch, Decorative Label Punch, Rhinestone Jewels
For the cherry, I colored it in with markers and stamped on Whisper White, then cut it out. But I also stamped it underneath the cherry that you see there.
Also, check out how nice those images are stamped – can I just tell you can how much I LOVE the new ink pads! Now with the new ink pads from Stampin' Up!, they do have a bit of a learning curve. We are so used to pressing down so hard, and with these you don't. But the more you use them, the better you will come to love them too.
I hope that you enjoy today's card using Stampin' Up!'s A Cherry on Top stamp set – if you have questions about getting this set for yourself, contact me right away and I will help get you started.
