Throwback Thursday – Strawberry Fields Forever

My sister asked on Facebook this week to go strawberry picking.  Believe it or not, I have never done it.  During the summer, we try to do little jaunts because we are both so busy during the school year.  So we are planning to go next week.

In the back of my mind, I remembered the Tart N Tangy stamp set which included a strawberry.  I knew I had some samples of this long-retired stamp set which would be perfect Throwback Thursday.

Here is a sample from 2008:

Yeah.  That’s about right.  Loving that Green Galore and Real Red.  Still miss those brads.  Notice I didn’t even put a watermark on this one.  No threat on internet stealing of this idea, right? Ok, enough looking back. We have a brand-new catalog with fabulous new stamp sets and accessories to gush over.

Here is my updated card using the new Fresh Fruit stamp set and coordinating designer series paper.

Colors used were Pear Pizzazz and Watermelon Wonder with Whisper White.  I did use Wink of Stella on the strawberries, scored the bottom of the Pear Pizzazz piece, and added two sizes of pearls.  Fresh Fruit is a two-step stamp set and is made of photopolymer so two-toned stamping is easier than using markers and huffing on the stamp like the older card.

Which one do you prefer?  Thanks for looking back with me!  Can’t wait to go strawberry picking next week!
