Strawberry Delight

Hi Everyone!!  HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!!!  I wanted to share with you all the special strawberry delight I made for my family..  And what would it be without my Cricut and Peachy Keen Stamps?  I made the strawberry cake and cut it up into chucks.  Then cut strawberries and added strawberry glaze.  Finally whipped cream and a strawberry on top!!  I wanted to make something for the Peachy Keen challenge.  It is based on a photo for inspiration.  The photo had fruit and it looked yummy so I decided to make this strawberry delight.  I made these cute little pick to stick in the top of the yummy delight.  Here is a picture it

The whipped cream kinda fell off one side.  My family was rushing me to take pictures because they wanted to eat it.  SO I apologize for the bad lighting.  I didn't notice it was so bad til I went and looked at the photos and the dessert was gone so I couldn't take anymore pictures:(

 I used the Preserves cart for this project.  I cut the base shape at 2 1/2" out of white cardstock.  I cut 2 of these shapes for each pick.  I inked them up with Tim Holtz distress ink and added brown stitching around them.  Then adhered them together with the toothpick in the middle. 
 Here is a picture of them.  I used a scallop punch to make the one look like it had a bite taken out of him.  That is why he also has a sad face.  I also cut the strawberries from the Preserves cartridge.  Used brown pen to stitch around them as well. 
 The sentiment is from Close to my Heart Say it in Style stamp set.  This is my favorite stamp set because it has sooo many sentiments.
 I used the cute Peachy Keen In Stitches face assortment stamps  I used the 1/2" size and stamped them using Stampin Up close to cocoa ink pad.
I tried to take close up pictures of each pic.  They still didn't turn out well.  I am so sorry..

I apologize again for the lighting.  These are sooo adorable in person.
