Raspberry Row

Last Friday, SCS honored k dunbrook as Queen for the Day.  Go on over and take a look at her amazing gallery.  Be prepared to be awed!  She's also the nicest lady with lovely comments and encouragement.  She definitely deserves to be queen, not for a day, but for at least a week.  (Since I didn't get my cards in yet, we really need to call it a week!)

Here's the first card I CASEd  from this card of Karen's.

This also fits for the Just Add Ink #61 challenge to just use stamps and cardstock.  No DSP, ribbon, buttons, die cuts, or punches.

Do you really think that's ribbon?  Nope!  It's a strip of Rich Razzleberry, stamped with the dots from the For All You Do set.  I hope heat embossing is allowed.  The white didn't show up as well as I'd hoped, so I embossed.

I inked the raspberries with the Melon Mambo marker then thumped with Rich Razzleberry and inked the stems with Pear Pizzazz.  The sentiment is from the retired Bird on a Branch set.

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Clearly for You, For All You Do, Bird on a Branch
Ink:  Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White, SU Markers (Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Pear Pizzazz)
Paper:  Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry
Accessories:  SAMJ, White EP

Oops, I used a punch on the corners.  Oh well, I'm going to send it over and hope it's enjoyed anyway.  This was really a challenge!

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Enjoy!

I absolutely love the embossed strip, I so thought it was ribbon. I'll definitely be trying that out soon.

I love it Bonnie - it's amazing the depth you can achieve using just stamping!
