Apple of My Eye - Inspiration Series - Cherries

Welcome to Day 3 of my first Inspiration Series! 
I'm featuring the new stamp set - Apple of My Eye - one of my personal favorites from Stampin' Up!'s Occasions Catalog 2016. 

Today's card features the Cherries stamp images. (the stem and the cherries are separate stamps) 
Take a look:

I don't know about you, but I {heart} cherries! And cherry flavored anything - I especially like chocolate-covered cherries, but hey, anything covered in chocolate can't be all bad, right? :)

The cherries stamp image in this stamp set is actually a single cherry, meant to be stamped at the end of the stem image. That's cool because you can actually stamp other little round fruits with it as well, like maybe....a bunch of grapes? A bowl of blueberries? What else? 

I think the stamped cherries focal image is pretty self-explanatory, but let me tell you how I stamped the gingham card stock strip. It was SO simple!

1) Ink the Brushstrokes background stamp with Marina Mist ink and stamp on a piece of Whisper White card stock. 
2) Without re-inking the stamp, turn it a 1/4 turn and stamp again on the same card stock. 

Instant Gingham!
Have you ever done that stamping technique before? 

Finish off the card with a touch of Dazzling Diamonds Glitter on the cherries for just a little sparkle!
