Tart & Tangy Treats

I know it's been quite some time since I posted anything with Stampin' Up! product. It's not that I don't still love their stuff, but I just feel like I haven't had much time for stamping lately, and I have all this other stuff on my desk. So, what changed? Well I finally put in an order for some stuff from the Occasions mini. I cannot get enough of fruity stamps. I love them all, I wish there were more! So when I saw Tart & Tangy and the matching paper I had to have them both. First off is a small 3x3 note card. I'm not sure what I was thinking with putting the phrase where I did, but what's done is done. It's clearly unbalanced, and the one eyelet is way too close to the word "crazy". But you know what, the cheerfulness of the green and orange are just too cute for me to fret too much about the rest of it being perfection.

For my second card with this set, I went with a sketch I had jotted down from who knows where. I stamped the citrus stamp three times on a white panel. I did a lime, an orange, and a lemon. Then I proceeded to make the rest of the card those colours. I used some paper from Summer Picnic once again. I also double matted the fruity panel, then when that was all set up, I used the now retired envelope glue stick (it makes nice circles) and daubed some on each fruit. I have this thicker style glitter that totally looks like sugar, so that went over the citrus fruits. I wanted a little sentiment, and the word delightful seemed very appropriate.

Now, I've used some summer colours, I would like to feel some summer weather! As of now, my hands are popsicles since we don't want to turn the heat back on!
