Welcome to Papertrey Ink's first group post of April! This is a berry long post with berry many photos...so lets get started! Mish Wooderson and Nichole Heady have teamed up once again and have created the sweetest stamp set yet called Strawberry Patch! I love so many things about this set and coordinating dies.
This first project uses the Strawberry Patch stamp set, coordinating dies, and the Berry Basket die. It is filled with items for a crafty friend.
The basket was cut using just two sheets of Kraft cardstock. It is such a cinch to assemble which allows more time for the fun stuff!
The front of the Berry Basket is embellished with the new Perfect Patches die cut from Classic Kraft felt as the bottom layer and a stamped Vintage Cream die for the top layer...I LOVE, love, love Perfect Patches!
First up in the crafting kit is a pincushion embellished with a handmade flower cut using the new Notched Flowers die collection, the Strawberry Patch die collection, and the Sending You and Heart Border dies.
I stamped up a batch of Tiny Tags using the new Strawberry Patch stamp set...strawberries in all sizes are available. This tag is attached to a small wooden spool which holds Pure Poppy Baker's Twine.
Another little tag attached to the top of the scissor pocket...
A mini stash of fabrics, Simply Chartreuse felt, and Copics are tucked snuggly inside the Berry Basket as well with a stamped Tiny Tag added as an accent. A fun gift for a crafting friend! What will you make using your Berry Basket die? It's the cutest thing on earth I tell you.
On this card I used the Berry Basket die again and cut it to fit the front of the card and simply stitched down the sides and across the bottom to create a pocket.
I love the solid and outlined images of all of the elements included in the Strawberry Patch stamp set. If you're a color-Copic-lover, you'll love the versatility of this set. Here I used the Strawberry Patch die collection and my Copics to color in this juicy berry. It is centered on dies cut from the Limitless Layers 1 3/4" Circle die collection.
Mmmm...I've decided that Kraft cardstock, Classic Kraft ink, and Vintage Cream ink and so delicious together. I used the Tag Sale #5 die and stamped my berries onto sheet music. I was curious to see how it would turn out once I added Copics and love the look. And, I can't forget to mention the sweet sentiments included in this stamp set.
Next up is a little home decor piece using a wood block that I painted and distressed. I added patterned paper, a stamped Perfect Patches and Strawberry Patch die, Simply Chartreuse felt, Pure Poppy Baker's Twine, Ripe Avocado Grosgrain, and a stamped Tiny Tag. Pure Poppy ink makes the most delicious looking berries I've decided.
The Perfect Patch die is stamped with an image from the Strawberry Patch stamp set using Berry Sorbet ink...such a yummy contrast with the Pure Poppy berry.
Next up is a card and matching envelope using this set with a new color combination.
I used Melon Berry, Spring Moss, and Simply Chartreuse ink, Simply Chartreuse, Sweet Blush, and Vintage Cream cardstock, the new Limitless Layers 3.5" Ovals die collection, Perfect Patches, and Strawberry Patch dies.
And lastly, I couldn't resist a Lavender Moon berry! It sits on dies cut from the Perfect Patches die collection and is stamped with Autumn Rose and Simply Chartreuse. I trimmed down a Double Ended Banner die cut from Simply Chartreuse felt and added it behind the berry to add one more layer. This may be my most favorite sentiment of the set...today anyway :)
I used the Banner Borders die and patterned paper across the top to bring in just a bit more of the green I love so much. Just a fun card set to end with, but so many more ideas ready to roll with this sweet new stamp set. The Strawberry Patch stamp set and all of the coordinating dies you've seen here will be available for purchase on April 15th.
The other girls have oodles of ideas ready to share with you and I can't wait to see them for myself:
