Stem Jam

I'm on a fresh-from-the-farmer's-market roll! I know! I know! Strawberry jam doesn't really include stems and leaves! It's just the once you get past the leaves and stems....this MIGHT be yummy! The Farmer's Market vendor who sells jams makes much more than just strawberry jam. Her arsenal of jams and jellies is vast and delicious!
Hawaiian Heat: pineapple, jalapeno and bell peppers
Dragon Breath: hot peppers, strawberries, lime, tequila, triple sec
Scarlet Scorch: cayenne and Serrano peppers and cranberries
Cherry Almond
Winter Berry : strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries
And my personal favorite: Sweet Warning: Sweet red bell, Serrano, cayenne, and habanero peppers (Really good on a peanut butter sandwich!)

AND - I found out I won a challenge over at Party Time Tuesdays! Whoot! I am 'berry' excited!

  1. Oh yes!! So yummy looking and pretty! Love your coloring on the strawberries.....stems and all! Super cute and pretty and also love the embossing on that vanilla oval. Cute idea that I will be CASEing! Love your card!

    I looked for an e-mail and couldn't find one - but the cloud tutorial is here: This is a template for the cloud. Click where it says video and you'll find that toward the end of her page of videos. I don't have the brush she used and just use a stencil type brush from Wally World. It works though. Thanks for the comments on my clouds too.

  2. I love your card. Great coloring on the strawberries. Thank you for playing along with us at Stick it Down.
