Cherries Jubilee



One of my favourite treats each summer is our cherry tree (as you can probably tell by my blog design too).  Last year we picked 50 lbs of fruit and made dozens of pies and jelly.  It's a tart cherry tree and I love it that way.  Right now it's buried under a lot of snow, but by summer it will bloom and be beautiful and then give us fruit.  This is such a fav set of mine from Flourishes - Cherries and Peaches.  I stamped the cherries on Flourishes Classic White with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then did a little "out of the box" trimming and then die cut it with the Spellbinders Circles die.  That's bordered with an Octagon die shape with Metallic Black cardstock.  I really love the combination of white/black/red and green together for this image.  The papers are Echo Park - For the Record.


Love colouring these cherries!  Can you also see I added a soft stamping of the tiny cherries image in Pear Tart Memento Ink and then Love Letter Ink for the sentiment?  I've also used some beautiful black lace around the fish tail banner, with a little looped bow and button.
