About Me

Sarahfleming1 Hello! My name is Sarah Fleming, and I'm a paper addict living in central Texas. I'm an independent demonstrator for Stampin' Up! and love to teach others how to make lovely paper projects. I always have ink-stained fingers (I'm okay with that). I also knit. If you're in the USA, I'd love to be your demonstrator!

Merry Little Berries

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments bundle, Pretty Pines thinlits, Swirly Snowflakes thinlits, Merry Little Christmas paper, Stampin' Blends - handmade Christmas card - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Good morning! Look at that gorgeous paper. Just look at it! Sometimes you make a card that you can’t stop looking at. For you, this might not be that card, but for me it is. Bold, bright, and blingy! That’s my jam.

I’m playing along with the Christmas Joy theme challenge at Global Design Project this week.

This piece of paper is probably my favorite piece in the Merry Little Christmas paper pack, because of all the coloring possibilities. I started with coloring the berries/leaves/olives/whatever those things are, and I was thinking of coloring the branches but thought they looked so striking left in white. I colored the berries (for lack of knowing what they are) with Light and Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends. I started with Light, then colored the tips with Dark, then went back over the whole thing with Light again. I went over the dark areas of each berry with my Wink of Stella pen so they shimmer.

My card base is not Cherry Cobbler, but Real Red. I’ve found that the Dark Cherry Cobbler marker is more Cherry Cobbler, but the Light one is a perfect match for Real Red. On top of the card base is a 2″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock. The piece of Merry Little Christmas DSP was originally 4″ x 5-1/4″, and I cut off the edge with the decorative edge die from the Swirly Snowflakes thinlits. I just love that little extra detail! The sentiment is from Snowflake Sentiments, and I wanted it without the “from our family to yours”, so I stamped the whole thing in Real Red, cut it out with the Stitched Shapes circle, and then covered the “from our family to yours” part with some Year of Cheer washi tape. The white branches are cut with the Pretty Pines thinlits. Before adding the sentiment to the card, I popped in some Silver Mini Sequin Trim (tacked down with a Glue Dot), then put the sentiment on Dimensionals. The pines are glued to the center of the sentiment, and then I added some Rhinestones, which I colored with the Dark Cherry Cobbler Blends marker.

I love the bright and bold red and black for Christmas! It’s so stunning! We’re color twins, I guess, because I also posted a red and black card!
