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.

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.)
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.

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.
