Sweet Strawberries for Pals Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampin' Pretty Pals' Blog Hop!  This month, the theme is "Wonderful Cards/Projects from the Garden" where our design team shocase projects from things found in a garden, such as flowers, vegetables, fruits, or even a garden scene.  We really hope that you enjoy and will be inspired by them!  as you hop from blog to blog, don't forget to leave comments because we love hearing from you.  Once you finish here, you will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you "hop" along from Pal to Pal.

Every time I think of strawberries, I chuckle at the way my son used to pronounce them.  He would ask for bob-ninnies.  He loved strawberry milk too (Bobninny milk).  He is now 31 and knows how to say it the right way.  LOL  Great memories!

I used the Sweet Strawberry bundle for my cards.  I started out with a base of Poppy Parade and a piece of Pattern Party paper (2-1/4" x 5-1/2") and matted that on Granny Apple Green (2-1/2" x 5-1/2").  Then I stamped the strawberries in Poppy Parade (outline) and Flirty Flamingo.  I daubered a few with Daffodil Delight just for a shade of color.  The stems were done in Garden Green (outline) and Granny Apple Green.  The flowers were done in Crushed Curry (outline) and Daffodil Delight.  They were all punched with the Strawberry Builder Punch.  I used Hippos & Friends dies for the sentiment.  I popped up a few strawberries for dimension. 

I had a few extra pieces as I always do, so I decided to try a Basic White base to see how it looked.  Let me know which is your favorite!  

More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the Design Team, because the Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on August 11th. Our theme will be “My Happiest Season” when our Design Team creates a project showcase projects inspired by their favorite season of the year. Until then, have fun in your craft space.

Great cards Michelle! Those strawberries look great in both the black and white. Love the sweet memory too!

Thanks, Melissa!

Debbie Mageed said...

Michelle, your cards are both wonderful! I love the sweet strawberry bundle and hope it stays around a while. I definitely can't choose a favorite "bob-ninny" card (that's the cutest name for strawberries ever!) but the black one really pops! Thank you SO much for joining the blog hop this month! I am so glad you did and hope you will join us again.

Michelle Quinno said...

Thank you so much, Debbie!! I will give it my best for future hops!!

I love your cards and your story. My son is 30 and those memories are so precious. (He used to say heg-ache for headache...) The little bit of yellow in the strawberry makes them look more real.

Michelle Quinno said...

Thanks, Lisa!! Isn't it a riot what they say? Love heg-ache! Now I chuckle at my grandson. I appreciate your sweet comments!

Mary said...

Michelle, such a beautiful card -- love the colors and the layout, as usual! And the strawberries? Your coloring makes them look real!!

Michelle Quinno said...

Thank you so much, Mary!!
