Day 74: National Scrapbooking Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the National Scrapbooking Month Blog Hop! We are featuring Taste of Summer projects by almost forty crafty CTMH consultants on this hop. Taste of Summer is an exclusive paper packet and matching stamp set offered by CTMH to celebrate National Scrapbooking Month. You may be arriving here from PAM'S BLOG. Let's hop!
While I love the bright, cheery colors of this special new paper packet, I have to admit that I was at a bit of a loss when first I sat down with this line. I really love strawberries, and we go picking every summer so I can put up a ton of strawberry jam to last us the whole year. It's not canning time though, and we ate the last jar of jam before I got my papers, so I decided to go with a strawberry card to get my juices flowing.  Next thing I knew I had four adorable cards on my desktop!
Using the Cardabilities sketch for inspiration, I paired the bright papers with Colonial White cardstock and some yellow spritz I mixed up in my spray pen. I stamped the BERRY sentiment over the background before I spritzed. Then I stamped the swirl from Doodled Designs in Hollyhock ink and topped it with the strawberry vine in Topiary ink. I topped the "seeds" in the strawberry images with tiny dots of Liquid Glass, which I colored with yellow and brown Shin Han markers once they were dry for a nice bumpy seed effect. Then I added extra stamped images of the strawberry tops upside down to make a place to add my blossoms, which I cut using Art Philosophy

Next up on the hop is JUDY'S BLOG. Remember that this adorable stamp set and paper packet is only available in May while supplies last. Contact your consultant or click here to order your Taste of Summer today! Don't forget to hop through everyone's blog to enjoy all the juicy goodness!
