I love it when a plan comes together effortlessly. This week that happened with the HSS challenge. I was so excited to use the mouthwatering set again and couldn't decide between the watermelon or cherry images so I made cards using both.
My first card made me smile and I really wish you could smell the melon EP, it is yummy! It reminds me of a Jolly Rancher. It's that good. And I was able to use some Gumball Green for the first time. It is a gorgeous color!
(Hint: The 2-1/2 Circle Punch works great with the watermelon. Punch it out and then just cut across the top.)
My second card was cased from Carrie Sampsel. I loved the colors she choose (this is my kitchen color palette, swoon...) And I finally got to use my cherry EP and Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details to add a little something extra. The sentiment is stamped and cut with the Bitty Banners collection. If you haven't checked out the Bitty Banners Framelits, you should. They are awesome! And coordinate with the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set perfectly.
