Tart and Tangy!!!

I've been a busy little (mmm OK... Big) person this week, and have sat down and made the box and cards we'll be making at my upcoming 'Tart and Tangy' Night. Oh and lets not forget that I took the photos too... now if you can imagine me outside, 8month pregnant belly, kneeling on the decking trying to get a good photo!!!!... you will truly appreciate my efforts and of course I'm sure get a nice little giggle out of it, while you're trying to visualise all that!!!! hahaha.

Anyway, I've made four cards and the gift box and they are REALLY simple to do. So here they all are:-
First up.... the gorgeous little box that all of the cards we make will fit nicely into. I've use Old Olive cardstock as the base of the box and then layered Bashful Blue and pieces of Summer Picnic DSP onto the top. I've also used Red Wide Grosgrain and the Cherry Stamp from 'Tart and Tangy' cut it out with my circle punches and layered it onto a circle of Old Olive and a Red Scallop.

Now for the cards:-
First up.... this one is made with the Apple stamp and the Apple Print paper from Summer Picnic. I've used some Old Olive Wide Grosgrain and layered the apple image onto an Old Olive circle. The base of the card is Whisper white and there is also another layer of Real Red. The sentiment is from the Level 1 Hostess Set 'So Many Sayings' and it says Thanks SO Much.

Next card:-
STRAWBERRY!!!! mmmm.... this one again has a base of Whisper White (actually they all do). Here I've used a piece of the Flowers and Bashful Blue Print from Summer Picnic DSP with a strip of Real Red and then a piece of Real Red Wide Grosgrain to finish it off. The Strawberry stamp is layered on a circle of Real Red and an Old Olive Scallop. Again the sentiment (hugs & kisses) is from the Level 1 Hostess set 'So Many Sayings'.... Interested in this Hostess set YET.... well why not book a workshop and it could be yours.

Card No. 3 is.....
CHERRIES!!!!.... This one is done by layering Real Red, Bashful Blue, Old Olive and a piece of the Cherry paper from Summer Picnic. Add a knotted piece of Real Red Wide Grosgrain and the Cherry stamp layered on an Old Olive cirlce and Real Red Scallop, it's done. The Happy Birthday Sentiment is from 'It's your Birthday.

And last but not least..... Card No. 4:-
ORANGES!!!!! This card I've made by using a layer of Old Olive, some Whisper White and the Stripes from Summer Picnic, then finished it off with the Orange stamp layered on a Bashful Blue circle and Groovy Guava Scallop, then a piece of Groovy Guava Double stitched Ribbon to finish it. The sentiment again is from 'It's your Birthday'.

Oh and we must have a GROUP SHOT.... so here they all are together!!!!

Ok.... so I had to cheat here and remove myself and my BUMP from the ground and relocate to higher ground and use the Barbie!!!!! Sorry Girls, but I didn't think I could handle another photo on the ground.... well my BUMP couldn't anyway... hahahah.

Now I MUST thank the lovely Rebecca Ross who shared her ideas for this Tart and Tangy class with me.... THANKYOU Rebecca!!!!! I've just adapted a few of the cards.

Sooooo.... there you have it your official SNEAK PEEK at what you'll get to make. Let me know if you are interested in coming... but be quick... you don't want to miss out. I can't wait to get us all together again to do this set.... It really is a cute little stamp set and the Summer Picnic Designer Paper is GORGEOUS.
