Bowl full of Cherries

Another card using 'A Cherry on Top' hostess stamp set! For this one I tried to think a little bit out of the box by turning the plate stand cover up side down to use as a cherry bowl. I stamped just the very bottom of the plate stand to use as the bottom of the 'bowl' then covered the 'bowl' with designer paper, textured CS and a strip of 1/8" Taffeta ribbon.
 I stamped a bunch of cherries by inking the cherry stamp just at the very corner of my stamp pad and using a post-it rounded at the corner for masking then going back with the Gumball marker and drawing in a few stems. Way faster then inking the cherry stamp with markers.

I did mix up my 'reds' for this card! LOL....Framelit is Riding Hood Red as well as the stamped Cherries. The ribbon is Real Red Taffeta and the Baker's Twine is Cherry Cobbler but it all looks fairly good together with the last two reds being only very small amounts!

Stamps: A Cherry on Top.
Paper: Whisper White CS, Riding Hood Red CS, Midnight Muse CS, Twitterpated DSP.
Ink: Midnight Muse, Riding Hood Red, Gumball Green.
Accessories: Big Shot, Fancy Fan Folder, Apothecary Framelits, Crystal Effects, Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine, Real Red 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon, Paper-piercer, Mat.
