DT Challenge: Sensational Summer & Pre-CHA Clearance SALE

Hello!  Welcome to this month’s DT Challenge:  Sensational Summer! 

As you may have guessed from my post on Friday about all the strawberries we picked, summer to me involves lots of harvesting from my own garden and going to the local farmers’ markets and pick your own farms.  So, when this idea came up, I knew I wanted to do something with strawberries.

So, I grabbed my Summer Garden set from The Petal Press (one of IHP’s exclusive stamp lines) and stamped the strawberry plant in Memento black and then colored them with Copics.  Then I cut a circle for the center of the plate from Dutch Mustard Soup 6x6 paper.  I used my Xyron to apply adhesive to the front of the images and then stuck them to the BACK of the plate, before sealing with some clear spray.  It’s hand-washable but I wouldn’t submerge it.

And by the way, the chocolate dipped strawberries were totally delicious.  They were juicy and red all the way through.  Mmm.  I wish I still had them but they’re done for the season now.  Cherries are next up!  I do make an amazing cherry pie!

Be sure to hop along and see what the rest of the DT has for you:
