Cheery Cherries

I'm really liking this Lockhart cherries stamp...I don't know, it just seems refreshing. We lived by a cherry orchard when I was a girl, and I remember eating tons of fresh cherries, right off the tree. Even though cherry season is over, I still think of it this time of year...

Anyway, I made a cherry card for my mom with darker patterned paper (here's a photo of the card). She really liked it and had me make a set of 6 for her to give as a gift. After making that, I decided to make a few cherry cards with brighter colors, just to show her that bright looks nice, too. I think she still preferred the darker ones, but at least I got a little happier after making these.

SUPPLIES: Stamp...bowl of cherries (Lockhart), cherry for envelope (Fiskars Thankyou set); Paper...Homespun DP, water & hollyberry cardstock (Memory Box), Stamper's Select (PTI); Ink...Palette Noir; Misc...scarlet lake, crimson red, spring green, grass green (Prismacolor markers), cool gray 30% & 50%, cloud blue (prismacolor pencils), OMS & blending stumps, white grosgrain (Joann's generic holiday brand), dimensionals
