Tart and Tangy BFF

When I first saw Tart & Tangy set in the occasions mini I didn’t really think much of it and didn’t think it would be a set that would be very easy to work with but I was wrong- it is SO easy to put together a card and it will be so cute on a SB page!!  While preparing for my stamp-a-stack I wanted to make several examples from the mini and this is one I came up with, so I thought I would share.  The summer picnic DSP is soooo Yummy!! 

First I layed down my real red rectangle (4 1/4 X 3 3/8) then I layered the DSP of different lengths, added the ribbon,  and made my real red scallops using the slit punch.  I colored the cherries with my markers stamped and voila!  Done!  I love the cards that just come together on their own!  The bottom of the red rectangle looked a little bare to me so I added some piercing- it seems if a card is lacking something just add glitter or piercing 😉  Of course sometimes I need to do both. LOL

Supplies: Stamp sets:  Tart & Tangy and  full of life.   Cardstock:  Wild Wasabi, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Bashful Blue, Whisper white, and Summer picnic DSP.  Accessories:  Circle punch, scallop circle punch, slit punch, real red grosgrain ribbon, Real red and old olive markers.
