Sweet Strawberry Berry Blessings for As You See It Challenge #243

sweet strawberry blessings aysi 243 1

 It's Friday of an As You See It Challenge Week and this week we have a colour challenge. Here is the banner: 

The challenge is entitled Neutral Pops for reasons you can see from the photo in the banner. As I looked at the combination, I thought of the Sale-A-Bration reward: Berry Blessings, a Level Two reward for an expenditure of a minimum of $120 on one order before tax and shipping. It consists of the Berry Blessings stamp set and the Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper.

The reason I chose this set was that the paper included both Poppy Parade and Garden Green in it. I also have the Strawberry Builder Punch, so I thought I could also create a 3D strawberry for the front of the card, and since my February Online Technique Class has a theme of Fun Folds, I decided to make this card a Lever Fold card.

  • The card front is pretty clean and simple, in compliance with the banner photo which has a clean, almost industrial look - mostly neutral with little pops of colour. My pops of colour are the Poppy Parade strawberry and sentiment and the DSP backing the sentiment.
  • The strawberry is 3D. I punched out 4 shapes. Not having the Sweet Strawberry stamp set, I had to make do in order to add some details to the shapes. I used my Poppy Parade Dark Stampin' Blends Marker to outline the shape and add some seeds on the left hand side. I folded all the shapes in half with the seeds on the inside. Adhesive was applied on the outside and the four were glued together side to side, forming a 3D shape.
  • The inside is the magic of the Lever Fold card that we'll learn at my class, so if you want to learn how to do that, click HERE to register. We'll be making 2 other Fun Fold cards, too.
  • The panels on the inside have more of the Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper.
  • The inside sentiment and image are both from the Berry Blessings stamp set.

Did you realize that this is the last month of Sale-A-Bration until July? If you want to earn any of the current rewards you have to do it THIS MONTH!  And yes, it IS shorter this year! That's because it has been divided into two parts! The next time Sale-A-Bration comes around will be July and August, the rewards will be quite different, so don't miss out on these one!

Also, did you know that Sale-A-Bration was the best time to sign up to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator because there is always a special incentive to do that. This year, its 200 sheets of 6" x 6" brand new DSP in all the Stampin' Up! colours!
