Real Red Cherries

And the colors are... Real Black Olives!!! I decide on cherries though. Real Red, Old Olive, Basic Black and your choice of Whisper White or Very Vanilla - that was SCS Tuesday Color Challenge. Immediately I thought of my very neglected Tart 'n Tangy set - I love this little set of four, makes me think summer :) Click here, for a few more fun samples with this set. My base is Whisper White and I inked up my cherries with my Stampin' Up! Markers: Real Red and Old Olive. Color directly on your stamp for custom colored images, a 'huff' of air to remoisten the ink and stamp.
I used a piece of scrap to mask off the right side of my card and only stamped my custom colored image along the left side. I lined up the remainder of the card with my large polka dots Texturz Plate and ran it through my Big Shot. By only doing a portion of the card you will end up with a 'seam' from the plate - no problem!!! Its hidden under my Black Gingham Ribbon :) Cool huh - you'd never know! A Circle Fire Rhinestone adds the perfect touch to the center of my bow. I stamped out my cherries one last time and popped them out with my 1-3/8" Circle Punch. Then I took my VersaMarker and traced over my image and sprinkled with Clear Embossing Powder. Used my Heat Tool to give it that shiny raised image. Matted it on a Real Red punched Scallop Circle which was given some extra detail with a White Signo Pen. A quick Rub-on transfer kreates my sentiment. Thanks a bunch for stoppin by :)

I have been thinking about Tart and Tangy lately, too. Such a clean and pretty card. Love the tip about masking the seam with the gingham ribbon--a wonderful accent, too.

Hugs, Mary
