The FTL challenge on the Clean and Simple Stamping site this week is a favourite style of mine and, since my head is currently full of apples, it took no time at all to work out what I was going to make.
It was very speedy to produce this card...
... and whip up a matching notepad and pen to make a little teacher appreciation gift. This paper, from the Sweet Pea designer paper stack in the mini catalogue, has to be one of my all-time favourites. I think it looks great with that pop of black. Yes, that's the apple from the Tart and Tangy set - I know, I'm obsessed with it! But they're such graphic images, I love them! (And you get four fruits for £10.95 so it's pretty well rude not to!)
Stamps: Tart and Tangy, Trendy Trees (sentiment)
Ink: Basic Black
Card stock: Basic Black, Whisper White
Other: Earth Elements and Basic Black markers, 1 3/4" and 1 3/8" punches, Sweet Pea DP stack
While I'm here I thought I'd show you some simple, one-layer notelets made with Tart and Tangy.
I used Real Red and Old Olive on Whisper White card stock for these. Doesn't the cherry look fabulous with the Sincere Salutations sentiments! I think the invitation would be perfect for summer barbecues and parties and it would be easy to produce lots of them in a short time.
I won't be going to any barbecues or parties this weekend because it's the weekend of the Desperate 2 Dance show. All three of my children belong to this brilliant street dance company which offers the annual opportunity to perform in a real theatre. The children each have their four costumes ready, they're practising their moves and they are so excited! Me too - I know they'll be sensational and I'll need loads of tissues to hand!
Thanks for popping in today. Sorry about all the apples. I promise I've got it out of my system now and the next post will be an apple-free zone!
Have a wonderful weekend!
