Oohh Fruity!!

These little cards are very fruity and we had great fun making them at my card class last night. Thanks to my ladies for coming! I hope you enjoyed yourselves.

We used the Tart & Tangy stamp set, which is a BARGAIN at just £10.95!! And looks so good, very summery!

They work so well with the Summer Picnic papers, it really does make card making easier.

We used a selection of sentiments to finish off the cards, so my ladies could tailor them to the occasions they have coming up.

And we added the perfect finishing touch by adding these lovely stamps to the back, just so that everyone knows that they really were handmade!

Oh well I need to get some washing done, then the supermarket shop!! Enjoy your weekend.

Hi Sarah!

These are lovely!
Just a quick question, is there a special way of stamping as every time I try they are either smudgy with too much ink or faded with not enough? Yours look so perfect!

Hi Heather,
Stamping can take a bit of practice! Some useful tips, don't squidge the stamp into the ink. Have the stamp facing up on a table and tap the ink pad on the stamp, but not too much!!
Try it on scrap paper first, add a little more ink and stamp again.
Use an even pressure on your stamp when you put it on the paper, but try not to rock or move the stamp.
Hope that helps Heather!
