International Highlights Winners Blog Hop - May 2022

I’m so excited to be featured in the the International Highlights Top Ten Winners Blog Hop hosted by Kylie Bertucci. I was selected to participate in this hop by finishing #6 in the May 2022 International Highlights. Thank you to everyone who voted for my Sun Prints Gatefold Card!  You can check out my May Card here.

For my card I used the Stampin' Up! Sweetest Cherries Bundle.  When I saw this bundle I knew it was one I had to have.  I love cherries and I love the great sentiments and fonts in the stamp set.  Check out this bright and cheery card I created in Sweet Sorbet, Basic Black and Parakeet Party.


  1. Cut Sweet Sorbet card stock 4 1/4" x 11" and score at 5 1/2".  Fold on score line to form card base.
  2. Cut Basic White card stock 4" x 5 1/4"
  3. Stamp hatched image twice on top and bottom of Basic White card stock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink
  4. Stamp 2 cherries on Basic White card stock using Sweet Sorbet ink
  5. Stamp 2 stems and 2 leaves on Basic White card stock using Parakeet Party ink
  6. Punch out using Cherry Builder Punch.
  7. Wrap ribbon around Basic White card stock and tie a bow on right hand side.  Position ribbon just above bottom hatched stamping.
  8. Adhere to the card base.
  9. Adhere cherries at bottom using Dimensionals
  10. Adhere stem using Liquid Glue or Stampin' Seal and Leaves using Dimensionals.
  11. Stamp sentiments on Basic White card stock using Sweet Sorbet ink
  12. Cut out using Paper Snips
  13. Adhere to card base using Dimensionals.
  14. Adhere embellishments
  15. Cut Basic White card stock 4" x 5 1/4"
  16. Stamp cherry in bottom left corner using Sweet Sorbet Ink and stem and leaf using Parakeet Party ink
  17. Adhere to the inside of the card.
