Field Journal Blueberries!

In an earlier post, I noted I am the guest stamper this February for the Luv 2 Stampin GA group.  Each week, I share a project featuring the Field Journal Stamp Set.  This week’s project highlights the Field Journal Blueberries.  And yes, I did fussy cut but not a difficult image to use with this technique.  To accompany this week’s card, a Love You Always treat box has been gussied up!  

Field Journal

Field Journal Blueberries Card & Treat Box Details:
  • Card base is Seaside Spray cardstock (8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, score and fold at 4-1/4″).  
  • Prepare the second layer of Night of Navy cardstock (5-1/4″ x 4″) by topping it with a piece of Playing with Patterns Designer Series Paper (3-3/4″ x 5″).  NOTE:  if you select the pattern on this card sample, pay close attention to the direction of the pattern when cutting.  (Guess why I added the note!!!)  Do not add to card base at this time.
  • Using the blueberries stamp from the Field Journal Stamp Set, stamp three (3) images using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto a scrap of Basic White cardstock.  If you wish to embellish envelope, stamp it also.  Use the following Stampin’ Blends to color: berries – Dark Seaside Spray & Light Night of Navy, leaves – Light & Dark Granny Apple Green.   Fussy cut the blueberries using paper snips. 
  • Select the sentiment from the Field Journal Stamp Set and stamp onto a piece of Basic White cardstock using Night of Navy Classic Stamp Pad.  Cut using the stitched rectangle from the Ornate Layers Dies.
  • Wrap Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon around the Night of Navy/Designer Series Paper layer and tie into a bow.  Optional: add a sprig of the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon to the metallic ribbon before tying the bow. 
  • Position sentiment and two of the blueberry images onto the card front overlapping the ribbon. 
Treat Box:
  • Cut the Playing with Patterns Designer Series Paper to cover the box top and sides. Attach with Stampin’ Seal+ or multipurpose liquid adhesive.
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Parcels & Petals Stamp Set using Night of Navy Classic Stamp Pad onto Basic White cardstock.  Cut using the Ornate Layers Die.  Also, use dies to cut a scrap of Night of Navy cardstock to layer the sentiment. 
  • Add the sentiment to box top using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Complete by adding the last blueberry image and a small Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon bow. 
  • Lastly – FILL the box with treats.  Mine holds chocolate covered blueberries to give to a special someone!!! 

Don’t overlook ordering the Field Journal Stamp Set!  It’s versatility makes it a great addition to any stamp collection.
