Sweetest Cherries Card & Blog Hop

Hello from along the tidal Skutik (St Croix) River! I'm here in Saint Stephen, New Brunswick, Canada - just a few minutes' walk from Calais, Maine, USA. 

This beautiful area is connected to the Bay of Fundy, home of the world's highest tides. It's the traditional territory and home of the Passamaquoddy, and I'm grateful they share it with us.

Thank you for joining us on our blog hop across the Stampin' Up!® world. Contributors are all members of the fantastic Demonstrator Training Program organized by Kylie & Bruno Bertucci in Australia. A big thank you to our fabulous leaders, Kylie & Bruno! 


Today we're featuring cards we've made to say thank you to our lovely customers. When you shop with me this month, you'll receive the pieces to make this card as my thanks to you.

Just click on the Blog Hop Links at the end of this post to see more cards. 

My July customer card features the Sweetest Cherries Stamp Set & coordinating Cherry Builder Punch. I chose them because it's cherry season here in Canada - such a delicious time of year!

I'll include a clickable photo supply list at the end of this post.

To make this card, I started by using the Designer Tags Dies to cut a tag from Basic White Cardstock. 

I then stamped my sentiment from the Sweetest Cherries Stamp Set onto it in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I chose a birthday theme for July because it is my birthday month. (I love the fun of birthdays!)

Here's a look at the Sweetest Cherries Stamp Set:

My next step was to use the Cherry Builder Punch to punch out a:
  • cherry from Soft Shimmer Specialty Paper (love that glittery finish!)
  • leaf from Parakeet Party Cardstock
  • stem from Pecan Pie Cardstock
I assembled the cherry using Mini Glue Dots™ and Multipurpose Liquid Glue, then added it to the tag with Stampin' Dimensionals™. 

The Cherry Builder Punch is a fantastic tool, great with or without the coordinating stamp set:

To assemble, I adhered three 1 1/2" x 3 1/2" strips of Zoo Crew DSP to a 3 3/4" x 5" Parakeet Party Cardstock panel. I added the panel to a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Berry Burst Cardstock card base using Stampin' Dimensionals™.

I also added a 3 3/4" x 5" Basic White Cardstock panel to the card's interior.

Next, I added the tag to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals™.  I embellished with Classic Matte Dots. My final step was to add a bow made from Black & White Gingham Ribbon, securing with a Mini Glue Dot™.
