Measure of Love and the Stitched Greenery Die

Just a few more sleeps and the new 2022-23 Stampin' Up! catalog will go live.  Exciting and also a little sad.  Why?  Well that also means that some of my favorite stamp sets from the 2021-22 Annual Catalog will be retiring.  One of the sets I wanted to play with one more time was the Measure of Love.  I decided it would be the perfect set to use for the Festive Friday Challenge #FF0108.

What is the Festive Friday Challenge?  The Festive Friday Challenge is a bi-weekly challenge that has an Inspo List.  What is an Inspo List?  Every challenge has an Inspo list that has 10 items on it and those 10 items were inspired by a particular holiday, celebration or festivity.  You need to use 3 items from the Inspo list on your project.  You do not have to incorporate the festivity into your challenge but if you want to, you can.  Here is a link to more information about how to participate in the challenge.


What a great festivity!  I chose to use food, kitchen, items, gingham, and red from the Inspo List.


I stamped the images from the Measure of Love set on label cut using the Scalloped Contours dies.  I used a Smoky Slate Stampin' Blend to color the scale and Evening Evergreen and Real Red pads to color the bowl of cherries.  The Real Red ribbon is from the 2022 Jan-June mini catalog.  The strip of Gingham DSP is from the Pansy Petals DSP. The lovely stitched background  was made using the Stitched Greenery die.


Inside I added another strip of gingham paper and another sweet bowl of cherries.

I so love this card, Sharon. That cover plate is the perfect stage for the wonderful elements you used. I love the color scheme and everything else about it. You know I just love the inside too. Just wonderful all around.


I love the colour scheme you chose for your kitchen scales card Sharon and the diecut detail behind and the fabulous red ribbon and bow is the perfect finishing touch!

Adorable, Sharon! The red against the gingham is so striking! I really have to get the Stitched Greenery die...what a beautiful background! Enjoy the upcoming weekend!
