Royal Blog Tour!!!

Welcome to my castle!!! This is my first time to participate and I have "royally" enjoyed creating these projects so I hope you enjoy them. Also, I'm offering BLOG CANDY!!!! Details are at the end of the post.

Each Princess (yes, I'm wearing my crown all the days of the tour) was to select one stamp set and use it as the primary set on their projects. For my set, I chose Tart and Tangy. I love the different things you can do with this set!

For my first project I make a little basket of Strawberries (note cards, that is!)


Supplies:
Stamp Set: Tart and Tangy, Fundamental Phrases
Cardstock: Kraft, Real Red, Confetti Cream
Ink: Close to Cocoa, Basic Black, Real Red, Green Galore
Accessories: Linen Thread

My next project is a Calendar/Drawer combination. I just love this! I got the idea for the 2010 from a Table Card at Chili's!


Supplies:
Stamp Set: Tart and Tangy
Cardstock: Basic Black, Old Olive, Cast A Spell Designer Series Paper (really! It's the opposite side of the paper with the white skulls on it!)Ink: Old Olive
Accessories: Old Olive 1 1/4" Striped Grosgrain, Eyelet Border Punch, On Board Lots of Letters, Filigree Designer Brads

The next card is just a bright and cheery simple card. I love making backgrounds with our stamps!

Supplies:

Stamp Set: Tart and Tangy, All Holidays
Cardstock: Real Red, Whisper White
Ink: Real Red, Glorious Green, Basic Black
Accessories: Real Red 3/4" Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon

My next project is a little more complicated version of my simple card. I love doing techniques and this one uses a technique called Black Magic. Really fun to do!



Supplies:
Stamp Set: Tart and Tangy, All Holidays
Cardstock: Basic Black, Real Red, Whisper White
Ink: White Craft Ink, Basic Black
Accessories: Real Red 3/4" Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon, Stampin' Pastels, White Signo Gel Pen


This next project is some cute little recipe cards! Can't you just see using them for Apple Pie, Lemon Meringue Pie, Strawberry Cake and Cherry Cobbler????????


Supplies:
Stamp Set: Tart and Tangy, From the Kitchen Of
Cardstock: Real Red, Whisper White, Yo Yo Yellow
Inks: Real Red, Glorious Green, Yo Yo Yellow, Basic Black
Accessories: 1 1/4", 1 3/8" and 1 3/4" Punches

Last but not least, I have a Hybrid Scrapbook spread for you. Can ya believe it?????? LOL! I used the Apple Stamp to create the background and My Digital Studio for the pieces matted in blue on these pages for a cute little 1st Grade Layout.


Supplies:

Set: Tart and Tangy

Cardstock: Real Red, Whisper White, Brilliant Blue

Ink: Real Red, Glorious Green, Yo Yo Yellow, Basic Black
