Hey, crafty friends! It’s Heather here today! How much do you love the new Very Cherry Kit? I had so much fun creating projects with these cherries and these sweet summer images are perfect to brighten anyone’s day! I also have just loved all of the different and ideas and inspiration that the TE Creative Team came up with using the kit – who knew you could do many things with cherries? Today, I have more projects to share with you created with the kit from the TE Creative Team along with a video from Joy Baldwin.
If you haven’t checked out the new kit, click below to go to the TE webstore. Then keep scrolling for all of the more ‘cherry’ sweet inspiration!
Today’s video is from Joy Baldwin and she is sharing how she created two cards using the Very Cherry Kit. Watch below to learn how you can create ‘cherry’ cute cards like these:
In the video, Joy shares a closer look at the Very Cherry Kit and show how she created two cards with the kit. She uses various pieces of the kits to create the different elements for her cards and shows how to add color both with the clear stamps and coloring with Copic markers.
Here’s a closer look at the projects that Joy shared in the video:
For this card, Joy stamped the background from the Very Cherry Cling & Clear Combo set on Toffee cardstock and added color to the cherries with the clear stamps using multiple colors to add shading. The hearts are added to the background using the Very Cherry stencil and then Joy added a row of colorful cherries that are colored with Copic markers across the top of the card using the Cherry on Top stamp set (+ coordinating dies). I love the white highlight details that Joy always adds using a white gel pen. They really step up the images and the entire look of the card!
The sweet background on this card is created with the Very Cherry stencil. Instead of using the stencil around the cherries, she added extra stamped hearts from the Cherry on Top stamp set into the open spaces. The cherries on this card are colored with Copic Markers to look like Rainier cherries and Joy added them around the frame cut out with the Open Scallop Circle die. The white gel pen highlights show up again on this card on both the cherries and the hearts!
Check out the list below for all of the supplies that Joy used on her cards:
Here’s a look at a few more projects from the TE Creative Team that are created with the Very Cherry Kit:
Instead of standard red cherries, Jill Hawkins got creative with color to add Rainier cherries to this card! She stamped the background with the cherries using the Very Cherry Cling & Clear Combo set and inked the clear stamps with multiple colors (Potato Chip, Pink Champagne, and Guava) to create the Rainier cherry look. The sentiment is framed with the Open Scallop Circle die cut and I like how she added vellum to the center so the background peeks through bit from behind the frame. To coordinate with the blue frame, Jill added hearts to the background in blue with the Very Cherry stencil.
Instead of using the clear stamps from the Very Cherry Cling & Clear Combo set to add color to the cherries, Latisha Yoast broke out her watercolor paints! She stamped the background with Oreo Ink on watercolor cardstock and then used a brush to add color with her paints. The sentiment is added across the watercolored panel on a Sugar Cube cardstock strip and then Latisha added red and black rhinestones to the card for a touch of sparkle!
I created this set of mini cards using the Very Cherry Kit (Heather Nichols). The Open Scallop Circle die is cut out from Toffee cardstock and the center circles are stamped & stenciled with the Very Cherry Cling & Clear Combo set and coordinating stencil with Sugar Cube ink. I added sentiments and cherries from the Cherry on Top stamp set (+ coordinating dies) and added the frames to mini card bases cut out with the Bracket Notecard die from Cherry Pop cardstock. A few hearts from the Bits & Pieces – Hearts embellishments was the perfect finishing touch on these cute little cards!
Annette Allen used the Open Scallop Circle die to create a shaker on her card that she made with the Very Cherry Kit. There’s a cherry inside the shaker stamped with the Cherry on Top stamp set along with Snow Flurries sequins. Annette added more cherries to the front of the shaker and the ‘a note to ‘cherry’ you up’ sentiment stamped on a Sugar Cube cardstock strip. The background on the card is stamped with the Very Cherry Cling & Clear set.
It’s fun to play with color and details, but there are great ways to create clean and simple designs with the Very Cherry Kit too, like on this card by Natasha Valkovskaya. She stamped a border of cherries using the Cherry on Top stamp set down a Sugar Cube card base with Oreo Ink, leaving them uncolored. A few strips of Peapod, Cherry Pop, and Strawberry Milkshake Cardstock add the perfect hint of cherry color across the card front. For the main cherry image, Natasha die cut it and popped it up over the cardstock strips and added the stamped ‘just for you’ sentiment underneath. A few Bits & Pieces – Clear Drip Drops finish off the card.
These ‘cherry’ sweet cards by Emily Mydlowski created with the Very Cherry Kit feature black and white gingham details added with the Gingham Check Background stamp. The card on the left has a wide band behind the main cherry image that is framed with the Open Scallop Circle die cut. I love the background on Cherry Pop Cardstock where the cherries are in white and have tone on tone details added with Cherry Pop ink. The card on the right has a gingham strip behind the sentiment and cherries on the bottom of the card. How fun are the cherries sprinkled down the card front and the background stenciled with the Very Cherry stencil with Sugar Cube ink on Oreo cardstock with extra hearts from the Cherry on Top stamp set stamped throughout the design?
I love how Kavya did the background on this ‘cherry’ cute card! Kavya stamped just a portion of the background stamp from the Very Cherry Cling & Clear Combo set and then added color to the cherries with the clear stamps. She purposefully didn’t line the fill stamps up with the cherry images and result is so playful and fun! She added the ‘a note to ‘cherry’ you up’ sentiment from the Cherry on Top stamp set embossed in white on a cardstock strip, combining it with the word ‘hi’ cut out using the Cap it Off Alpha dies.
That wraps up for the inspiration for this week for the new Very Cherry Kit! We hope the projects from the TE Creative Team were ‘cherry’ inspiring.
