Tart and Tangy Class Samples

Here is another sampling of what we made at my Tart & Tangy Technique Class this past weekend. Not only did we make 3 cards using different techniques but we also made this set of 6 greeting cards with a gift box to hold them. The cards and the box are fairly simple to make. The general idea and the box itself I cased from the very talented Nancy Riley at iSTAMP. She has so many great ideas and samples on her blog. You can view her Tart & Tangy class samples here . She got her idea for this gift set from another very talented demonstrator Jackie Pedro at The Scalloped Edge . You can view her class samples here . She also has wonderful samples on her site. I have both of these very talented ladies listed on my blog list and I visit their sites often. On both Nancy's and Jackie's site they have posted a link to the box directions that were originally from Holly McMillen. I think it is great that talented people are willing to share ideas with one another.

Gift Set Recipe:

  • Stamps- Tart & Tangy
  • Papers- Bashful Blue, Real Red, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White card stocks. Summer Picnic Designer Series papers
  • Inks- Pumpkin Pie ink pad and Old Olive and Real Red Stampin' Write markers
  • Embellishments- Real Red and Bashful Blue Striped Grosgrain ribbon and Earth Elements Brads
  • Tools- 1-1/4" Circle punch, 1-3/8" Circle punch, Scallop punch, 1/16" hole punch, Sticky Strip and dimensionals

I have a couple of other cards to share with you from this Tart & Tangy Technique class but I'll save them for another day. I hope you enjoyed seeing this gift set. Just think of the nice gift card sets you could make using this idea but changing the stamp sets! The possibilities are endless!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Happy Stampin',

We had lots of fun using the printed paper to make the various fruit cards, and we've already used some of them for birthday cards. The birthday girls loved them! Thanks for the ideas,
