Tart and Tangy --The Deets

Or details, that is....

First, the cards:

Stamps: Tart and Tangy
Paper: Wild Wasabi, Peach Parfait, Real Red, Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight
Ink: Wild Wasabi, Peach Parfait,Daffodil Delight
Accessories: Rectangle Duo Bigz Die, Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Circle Scallop Punch, 1 3/8 Circle Punch, Brights Brads, Piercing Tool, Matte, and Template.

These 4 1/4 by 4 1/4 cards fit in our regular medium envelopes, but look cuter since they are square. I cut out 1 3/4 squares for my background. Then, I just layered everything on top. Oh yeah, I also poked some holes using my Template grid and added some brads.

The Box:

I cheated to make this box, so I'm not sharing with you the template. I have to perfect it first. The only new tool I used was the Scallop Border Punch on the lid.

The Candy Bag:

Stamps: Tart and Tangy
Paper: Real Red,Whisper White
Ink: Wild Wasabi, Peach Parfait, Daffodil Delight
Accessories: Pumpkin Pie 1 /4 Striped Ribbon, Pear Pizzaz 1/4" Ribbon, Small Cello Bag, 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch, Dazzling Diamonds, Powder Pal, Two Way Glue, and FRUIT SLICE GUMDROPS!

The Wine Charms:

My vision for this project was wayyy more cool than what came out, but I am happy with the results.

Stamps: Tart and Tangy
Paper: Shrinky Dink Stuff
Ink: Jet Black Stazon
Accessories: 1 3/8 Circle Punch, Crop-a-dile, Wire, Paper Snips, Rubber Scissors, Sew Suite and Springtime Vintage Designer Big Buttons, Patience

Things I learned making the Wine Charms:
1) Shrinky Dinks really Shrink.
2) When the directions say, "Use Stazon Ink" use stazon ink. Classic wipes off, even after heating.
3) If you wanted something flat, this isn't the project for you.
4) Hole placement is important and requires planning.
5) Thicker wire is better. If you need to make your own, wind two pieces together for that "Green" (aka used) look.

I hope you had fun learning about my projects and cruising the Stampin' Addicts Blog Hop. If you are in need of more inspiration, be sure to visit the Stampin' Addicts Forums and Galleries!

Happy Stamping!



  1. I really appreciate all of the shrinky dink tips!! Great projects!

  2. I used classic ink with shrinky dinks for an ATC swap once. Had to spray with fixative to seal them.

  3. I've always wanted to try Shrinky Dink--what a fun way to use it!
