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.
