Tart & Tangy with a little etsy....

These Japanese stickers are going to be the end of me....I can't even admit how much I paid for them because I pass on embellishments that are the same price. I cannot resist them....I'm hooked. These little ones aren't much bigger than 1/4" so you have to see why they are irresistible....not to mention the match the Tart & Tangy SU! stamp set that came from my Stamps In The Mail project kit courtesy of Kari Ransom. She has put together the cutest projects these last two months (see them by following her link) and I can't wait to check my mail tonight in hopes of finding my third installment. After I finished my projects last week these little stickers were staring at me so I had to play a bit. I have a really hard time with all the SU cardstock...I feel like my cards always end up so plain compared to the ones I see on blogs and in the catalogs but I press on hoping one day I'll get there. I stamped some Only Orange, Real Red & Pink Passion paper with versamark ink and the stamp that coordinated with the stickers although they don't seem to match as well in the photo as they do in real life but I'll share anyhow and you'll have to trust that they do. I'm using the smallest of the CM circle punches:

These strawberry stickers are puffy!

The cherry stickers on this card are flat & a have a little gloss to them...they remind me of Mrs. Grossmans. There are two shades of pink & one red.

These cherries are puffy and match the darker pink cs....

I tried adding a little something to the white card base by stamping alternating dots in all three colors but it looks more like I just freehanded it - live and learn; these are puffy fruits.

I have one more with a green apple but I need to stamp a sentiment before I can share it. Thanks for looking at my sad little cards!!
