Cherries!

Hey everyone! I have some news. I've made the Design Team for Scrapbooking and Crafting Friends! This is my first challenge with the group, which is sponsored by MyGrafico.

There are several different divisions for the team. This week I'm working with the Mini Projects Division, and our theme is cherries. I chose to make an ATC. The main image is from MyGrafico's Valentine's Day Stamps set. I printed it out three times on Neenah classic crest solar white and coloured it in with Copics. I cut the leaves and cherries out separately, so that I could add some dimension to the card. The top cherry has 3 layers, where the leaves and the smaller cherry have only 2. The stems are just on the base, which was cut out with an oval nestability, sponged with Fired Brick Distress ink and then I further distressed the edges before placing it on the ATC background.

The main background has cherries and the sentiment, both from Unity Stamps' June 2009 KOTM, Perfect in Every Way, stamped in Fired Brick. The sentiment is also embossed with clear embossing powder.Check out the Scrapbooking and Crafting Friends group. There's a fun group there and a lot of great ideas for projects.

This is also for the following challenges:
Gingersnap Creations #38: Spicy Supply Challenge - embossing
Your Next Stamp: Challenge #7 - embossing
Digital Tuesday: Challenge #41 - emboss it
Die Cuts R Us: Leftovers - the red backing is a piece of cardstock leftover from Christmas cards (not sure it counts as scrapbook paper, but it really was leftover!)
