I almost always prefer the stepped-up version, and today is no exception.  You can say that I love detail!!

Real Red, Granny Apple Green and Basic Black are the colors I chose.  I added some Pattern Party DSP from our host collection.  One of my all-time, favorite ribbons is the Gingham Ribbon.

Sweet Strawberry Trio for YouTube Live

Greeting Cards and Treat Holder created with Stampin' Up's! Sweet Strawberry Bundle & the All Dressed Up Dies. #Stampin' Gala, #Julie Gilson, #Handmade cards, #Party Favors, #Heat Embossing, #Birthday

 

I thought I would change up the color palette for last night’s YouTube Live.  In the past I used Real Red or Poppy Parade for the strawberries.  This time I used Flirty Flamingo & Soft Sea Foam instead.

If you missed the live presentation, you can watch it on YouTube.  Please keep in mind that it froze for about a minute, but it did come back on.

 

 

 

I created two greeting cards and a cute treat holder with the help of the All Dressed Up Dies.
