More cards - various sets and ideas

I've been busy making various cards - just enjoying some uninterrupted time!! Nice!!

Here are 4 large paper clips - I used the Scratch and Sniff!! Fun and yummy smelling

Stamp Set: Tart & Tangy
Card Stock: Yo Yo Yellow, Wild Wasabi, Real Red, Whisper White, Certainly Celery, Always Artichoke
Ink: Craft Yo Yo Yellow & Only Orange, Stampin Write Markers: Real Red, Always Artichoke, Old Olive, Gel Pen
Embellishments: Large Paper Clips (found at Walmart/Office Depot)
Technique: Scratch & Sniff

What's more delicious that a ripe strawberry and the gland-tingling smell of a lemon or orange? Well, these little paper clips smell like that.

Here's how to do the Scratch and Sniff Technique

For the cherries, I used my Stampin' Write Markers Real Red and Old Olive. I huffed and stamped on Whisper White and then cleaned my stamp and then stamped over the cherries with the versamarker. I mixed approximately 1 1/2 tsp of clear embossing powder with unsweetened (must be unsweetened because the sugar in sweetened will burn when heated) cherry Koolaid. I then poured this mixture over the versamarked cherries and heat embossed it. And it really does smell like cherries.

With the lemon, I used yo yo yellow craft ink and stamped the lemon stamp on whisper white. I again mixed lemon Koolaid with clear embossing powder, and heat set that. Yep - smells like lemons!!

Same with the orange!! Used Only Orange Craft Ink and mixed orange Koolaid with clear embossing powder. Yummy oranges!!

With the strawberry, I colored with Real Red and Always Artichoke Stampin' Write Markers. I then used the versamarker and colored over the red part of the strawberry. I had mixed strawberry Koolaid with clear embossing powder, poured it over and heat set it. Almost a taste of Spring!!!!!

I couldn't find Apple flavored Koolaid, but I will keep looking because that will smell like apple pie!!
