Welcome to week 10 of our 2021-22 Colour Creations blog hop! Tonight we are showcasing Cherry Cobbler, from the regals collection.
I normally use Cherry Cobbler to make Christmas cards, however, as I’m already making a Christmas card every Monday for our Heart of Christmas blog hop I decided to make a non-Christmas project instead that uses the Sweet Strawberry bundle and the stunning Cherry Cobbler & Gold 1/2″ (1.3 cm) Ribbon.
Have you seen the the Scalloped Kraft Treat Boxes in the Annual Catalogue? They are covered in tiny gold foil dots and they are perfect size for packaging up a selection of 3×3 inch notecards. They also coordinate so well with the Cherry Cobbler & Gold 1/2″ (1.3 cm) Ribbon.
The Sweet Strawberry stamp set was the perfect stamp set to be coloured in with my light and dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends. I’ve also used light and dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blends for the leaves.
There’s a lovely selection of sentiments in this stamp set and I’ve used a different one on each notecard.
Here’s a closer look at each note card. For the first two notecards I added a layer of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock behind the stamped layer and I stamped directly onto the top card stock layer.
The coordinating Strawberry Builder punch punched out the strawberry, the large and small leaf and the strawberry flower that I’ve used for these notecards below – the large flower I fussy cut with my paper snips. Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels add a tiny touch of bling.
These Stampin’ Up! square envelopes come in a pack of 40 and are designed to fit 3″ x 3″ (7.6 x 7.6 cm) notecards. To coordinate with envelopes with my Cherry Cobbler notecards I’ve simply glued a strip of the Peaceful Prints FREE Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper to the envelope flaps and trimmed the DSP with paper snips to fit the curve of the envelope flaps.
Although this DSP has Christmas designs on one side, the other sides are all background patterns you can also use on non-Christmas cards, like I have done here, using the Cherry Cobbler and Basic Black check pattern to decorate the envelope flaps.
The final touch for my gift box of Cherry Cobbler notecards is to tie it up with the new Cherry Cobbler & Gold 1/2″ (1.3 cm) Ribbon.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, Rachel Palmieri. I can’t wait to see what she’s made this week!

Week 9 – Cherry Cobbler
Cherry Cobbler is a deep rich red colour that always makes me think of Christmas and there are plenty of lovely new Cherry Cobbler products in the August-December catalogue (AKA the holiday catalogue), available to purchase from August 4, which is just next week.
Today I’ve used a stamp set that is part of a punch bundle called Christmas Gleaming. You might already have because it was in last year’s holiday catalogue and it is returning this year.
My “Deck the Halls with Boughs of Holly” card doesn’t use the Gleaming Ornaments punch pack – instead I’ve just used the Christmas Gleaming stamp set and simply fussy cut my holly leaves, which was super easy to do using my paper snips.
The holly leaves were stamped with Memento ink onto Whisper White card stock and then coloured them in with light and dark Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Mossy Meadow blends. I like the contrast between the lighter and the darker leaves.
The Whisper White panel has been embossed with one of the new “Wrapped in Texture” embossing folders – these raised dots reminded me of the holly berries and I think they work well with the holly sprigs. The sentiment was die cut using one of the Stitched So Sweetly dies.
The Wink of Stella pen adds some sparkle and shine to the holly berries. I also heat embossed my sentiment with clear emboss power after I stamped it firstly in Versamark and then in Cherry Cobbler. This is a great technique to remember if you want to emboss in any colour.
Can you see the sparkle and shine? It’s so pretty in real life.
It’s super easy to make your own Cherry Cobbler ribbon and Cherry Cobbler rhinestone jewel. Simply use your dark Cherry Cobbler blend to colour in the Whisper White crinkled seam binding ribbon and the large rhinestone basic jewel and wait a few minutes for the colour to set before adhering to your card.
Hopefully this super close up gives you a better view of my home made Cherry Cobbler ribbon and Cherry Cobbler rhinestone jewel.
I’ll share some other cards I’ve made with this bundle (using the punches as well) later this week.
