Mmmmm, orange

I've been wanting to try the scratch and sniff technique for a while now. When I saw the Tart & Tangy stamp set in the Occasions mini catalog, I knew it was the perfect time! This is a project I planned for my stamp clubs. I had a little trouble finding the right mix of embossing powder and koolaid, but finally struck the right balance. I didn't have any Only Orange craft ink, so I used a tip I picked up at Splitcoaststampers - use Versamark with classic ink and ~voila~ it's orange AND sticky and the embossing powder worked great. Just be sure to clean off your stamp between uses so you don't get ink in your Versamark pad.

Stamps: Tart & Tangy, One of a Kind

Cardstock: Wild Wasabi, Only Orange, Yoyo Yellow, Whisper White

Ink: Only Orange, Wild Wasabi, Versamark

Accessories: 1-1/4" circle punch, 1-3/8" circle punch, stampin dimensionals, Wild Wasabi striped grosgrain ribbon, key tag punch, horizontal slot punch, embossing powder, koolaid mix, heat tool
