One Layer Papertrey Ink Harvest Berries All occasion cards

So, I have been super bad about using craft items recently!  I got this set from papertrey ink before fact, I got another set at the same time and that one is the one I USED for my christmas cards.  Anyways.  I have been in love with their Januanry release but have promised myself to buy nothing till all stamp sets have been inked and used  a lot....or at least enough that I had gotten back their worth....  Not sure if that makes sense, but 8 cards here...I am gonna value them at 2.00 each.  Value total:  16.00  Stamp Set cost:  15.00  Yea!  I have gotten back the value of the stamps.  Plus, I like these cards so much that I will have to do a re-creation of them with a different sentiment.

I want to send these to my aunt who likes my cards, or give them to my mother (who loves green!), or give them in a tote bag (yet to be made) with envelopes to a friend to had our family over for dinner. 

It was nice to break it down....did some while dinner rolls were baking, some while chili was simmering and finished them off after the kids were in bed.  They are still drying now, but I am very happy about the results! 

Inks used are spanish olive versa magic for the dark leaves, and memento rich cocoa for the sentiment and the berries were stamped in the cocoa  then covered in the liquid pearls--ruby red.  The light solid ginko leaves were stamped in papertrey ink spring moss.  All stamps are from the Papertrey Ink Harvest Berries stamp set.  Ivory cardstock (some on SU, some papertrey)

Just so I remember to get up before the kids so they don't get into them before I do!

Entering the challenge contest at Truly Scrumptious for something forgotten....both the liquid pearls and the Papertry Stamps are both unused before now!
