Sweet Strawberry/Strawberry Punch

Dry Brush Background Paired with Sweet Strawberry

And, here's one more card I created using the very versatile Dry Brush background stamp.

For this card, I paired it with Sweet Strawberry and the Strawberry Punch.

One of my favorite Sale-A-Bration choices this year is the Berry Blessings Bundle which features the Berry Blessings stamp set and Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper.

The paper in particular, is so bright and cheery, reminding me of Spring!

I combined it, along with Sweet Strawberry stamp set which can be found in the Jan-June Mini Catalog to create this Drapery Fold card.

February Sketch Challenge

Feb 21 sketch challenge

Sometimes it helps to have a jumping off point with your crafting, and a sketch challenge is a perfect way to start!

Use the sketch as a blueprint for your own creations.

I will be sharing sketch challenges every so often.

I hope they provide inspiration, and you'll share your creations with me!

Sketch Challenge

For this card, I cut 4 squares out of Berry Delight Designer Series Paper (Sale-A-Bration) using my Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine and Layering Squares Framelit Dies.

I embossed my Whisper White/Basic White card front using the Subtle Embossing Folder, then stamped the greeting from Sweet Strawberry in Real Red using the Stamparatus.

The 4 squares were attached, and the card front was then attached to the Whisper White/Basic White card base.

Red Rhinestone Jewels were added for a little bling.

February Fresh Ideas-Drapery Fold Cards

Sweet Strawberry FinalDrapery Fold Pattern #1


Butterfly Gala finalDrapery Fold Pattern #2


Friend Like You FinalDrapery Fold Pattern #3

The Drapery Fold is fun and different, providing texture and interest to your card creations.
My February Fresh Ideas Newsletter will feature 3 types of Drapery Folds.
The first is one with large folds or pleats graduating down at an angle.
The pleats can run vertically from top to bottom or bottom to top, or horizontal from left to right or right to left. 
Use double-sided designer paper for contrasting patterns.
The possibilities are endless!
The 2nd Drapery Fold has smaller folds or pleats that pop up and run straight across the card front. 
The 3rd Drapery Fold is this free-form folding technique. 
No pre-scoring per a pattern.  Just fold the paper back on itself, letting the paper determine the fold.
