Now if you're in the mood for some baking and have found this post by googling raspberry tart recipes, you may be a little disappointed! Or perhaps we can tempt you into some card making!
I've been having fun creating with some of my pack of Raspberry Tart patterned papers.
As soon as I saw this stunner of a card by the super talented Carol Dunstan I just had to give it a go. (Warning: if you go blog hopping over there you better make a cuppa first, there's heaps of inspiring cards! I could get lost for hours, or til one of my munchkins gets hungry and comes hunting for a mother!)
Anyway - here's my CASE.
My version simply uses some of the designs from the Raspberry Tart paper pack punched with the 1 1/4 inch punch, with some of the coordinating Cameo Coral and Kiwi Kiss cardstock. The greeting is from Basic Phrases - my newest handy greeting set (pg 117.)
Can't wait to try it with another paper pack. Remember patterned papers are on special this month - buy 3 packs from the list and get a 4th free. The list to select from is here. Until the end of May only. Give me a holler if you'd like to place an order. Hmm, what's the email equivalent of a holler? If I was a Twitterer I could say give me a tweet. Shhhh, more cards - lets get back to it.
Now of course, while the gear is all out, may as well try another! Here's a Kiwi Kiss version with the gorgeous satin ribbon.
And another with a matching Sunny Boy gift bag. (Thanks to Marelle's tutorial here.) They're called Sour Cream containers in the US I believe.
This little bundle was for someone from my team who reached a milestone recently. A big congratulations to Angela Dickins on her promotion. You can find her gorgeous creations on her blog here. (I love the title ' What the Dickins! Very clever!!) This card by Ange is one of my favourites. I must get out my Circle Circus set and give it a go.
The little sunny boy containers are perfect for popping in a few little goodies. I loved Marelle's tip for folding over the rim and tying the top with ribbon rather than adhering that end too, saves wrecking the bag to get to what's inside!
And that's it for my Raspberry Tart creations. Hope you liked them.
I am so over the moon that it is Friday night and I get a lovely, lovely sleep in tomorrow morning. (That's a tad sad isn't it, but I do love my Saturday mornings!) Then we're off to help our nephews celebrate their 4th and 1st birthdays so lots of fun in store. And I'm
gas bagging sharing some creativity at the Milleara Market in Avondale Heights on Sunday from 9 til 3. Pop by if you're in the area and would like to see some cards or ask product or stamping questions, or just for a hi!
And if you were REALLY looking for a raspberry tart recipe, I'm afraid I can't help but you might like my sister in law's Black Forest Cheesecake Slice Recipe - it's easy to make and DELICIOUS!
Have a marvellous weekend.
