Strawberry Basket

Woohoooo! It's new release day over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps today!
More sweet sunbonnet images that you will want to add to your collection ;)
Here, i've used SB Strawberry Basket with the So Berry Sweet sentiment (available with the Strawberry Jam stamp)...

I coloured her twice and then layered one, which i'd cut out first, on top of the other.
The background paper is a freebie from a craft mag, it's from a Holly Hobbie paper pack.
I've used two border punches, Xcut 'sparkle' (gold vellum) and SU's eyelet border punch (red and white pieces).
Three further punches were used, Xcut large retro flower, Nellie Snellen stamen, and a small heart punch. The first 2 of these were used to create my strawberry flowers, but I wanted them to look like they have developing fruits, so I used some yellow mulberry paper and tore little pieces off, added some tacky glue and then squished the paper to resemble a small cone shape, using more glue to secure to the centre of the flower. I finished by dotting a green marker on them.
The leaves and ladybird were found in amongst my stash, and I wrapped a few thin strips of green cardstock around the end of my embossing tool to make the tendrils.

To see more of today's new release, please go to the LMM blog to see what delights the other Little Misses have made with these adorable images.
