Every month, TAC has contests for the demonstrators. One of the categories is always "Terrific Trio" and the rule is that you have to make 3 different cards using only 2 stamp sets.

After 6 years of entering off and on, I FINALLY won. And I get to choose $100 worth of TAC products as my prize. WOO HOO! To say I was excited would be an understatement!

You can see the winning cards HERE. Mine is the last one, so click on it and all 3 cards will come up.

Organic is the new sexy!

I had so much fun with this one! It's a laminated card that I can keep in my purse, because I have such a hard time remembering what fruits and veggies are on the Dirty Dozen/Clean Fifteen list. So, I printed out a copy of the list on cardstock, then added this image from My Favorite Things ("Who's That Girl Goes Green" set) to the other side. I think I'll make a few more up for some friends who have begun buying organic when they can. (As a side note, if you haven't read "The Omnivore's Dilemma" or seen "Food, Inc." I highly recommend both. They will change the way you eat forever.)

New Stamps!

Shhh! The postman delivered some new stamps the other day, so I couldn't wait to ink them up! This time, I got several of the organic/gardening stamps from My Favorite Things. I love this set in particular because the fruit is separate from the basket, so she can carry apples, peaches, strawberries, or tomatoes! I paper-pieced her shirt using the checked paper I found in my stash, and again, I used the Set A papers from TAC.

Berry Thanks

More berries from Flourishes. I cut the fancy frame from my Nestabilities. I haven't had the time to play with the berry stamps as much as I'd like, so stay tuned. Hopefully I'll have some more cards soon!

Berry Fun!

It was so nice to come back from vacation and have new stamps waiting for me to ink up! I ordered several sets from Flourishes and so far, I'm loving the beautiful images. As a rule, I try to use TAC stamps whenever I can, but for beautiful, ornate, realistic images, I have to look elsewhere. I did, however, stick to the TAC Color Caboodles Set A for cardstock and Copic Colors. It's so easy and brainless to color an image and not have to worry about finding a matching cardstock.
