I’ve had a lot of fun with this stamp set and I’ll be sad to see it go along with our Spring Mini on November 30th.
This is a great set to use with markers (still available individually for 4.95 this month!), as well as the Scratch-n-sniff technique. The images are nice and bold and simple so it’s also great for kids to use in their card-making.
Here I’ve made a very simple card using the cherries from my “Tart and Tangy” set (the set also has a citrus fruit, strawberry and an apple). I’ve inked up the image in my Real Red and Always Artichoke Stampin’ Write markers and stamped onto some Whisper White cardstock.
To accentuate the Cherries and give them a shiny appearance I’ve applied Crystal Effects to the image before letting it dry over night. To finish off I’ve simply tied a knot in some Real Read wide grosgrain ribbon and adhered it to the card with Mini Glue Dots.
The greeting was stamped in Basic Black and is from the matching greeting set “One Smart Cookie” which is also available from the current mini catalogue until Sunday.
I’ve used the little bunch of grapes image from the greeting set stamped in Versa Mark (a watermark ink that is very versatile) to create a subtle background on the Real Red cardstock.
If there is anything still on your wishlist from this year’s Spring Mini…….make sure you contact me before then so you don’t miss out!
