Summertime Tart 'n Tangy

Isn't this a fun combo : ) ~ the Tart 'n Tangy stamp set, Phrases for a Friend stamp set & the Summer Picnic designer paper : ) ! Bright and fun, perfect for summertime!! All three are available for a limited time (through June 30th) from the Occasions Mini catalog. Hopefully, I'll have more samples to show you later this week, these are just the first two. Tart 'n Tangy is fantastic, it's one of those sets that once you get it out and start working with it, you just think of more and more ideas of what you could do with it!! It was one of my favorites from the Occasions Mini Catalog from the first time I saw it...no idea why it took me so long to order it. I love that you can stamp the fruit all in one color, with an ink pad, like the orange in the first card, or you can use your SU Markers to color right on the stamps when you want to create a multi-colored image, like the cherries and strawberries in the first card.
Here is a quick, simple card, using the same stamps sets and designer papers. The orange was sprinkled with clear Chunky SU Glitter (from the occasions mini catalog), the topped off with some striped 5/8" gg ribbon ~


I made a couple cards last night with the new Fresh Cuts stamp set & note cards...I'll show those to you tomorrow : ) ! Enjoy your day!!

FANTASTIC Tart & Tangy projects, Nancy! This is one of my favorite sets too! It's versatile and simple to use ... reminds me of Merry & Bright in the Holiday mini. I sure hope SU keeps coming out with more and more versions of these two sets!

P.S. Ever wonder why they made the cherries larger than the other stamps in the set? You can punch the other images out with a 1 1/4" punch, but the cherry image won't fit in that. Hmmmm ... strange!

Wonderful cards Nancy! I really need to get this set out and play with it. I love it too, but I always struggle with the little stamps. TFS!
