In the Kitchen

Good morning friends! I had a ton of fun working with this fun stamp set from LAD! It's called In the Kitchen...and paired up with the new Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety Mini Deck (which you can get in the LAD store too) I just had so much fun! I love the sweet sentiments that this set contains...

I have a girlfriend that uses "Love Muffin" for several of our friends. I'm so excited to send her this card...what a cute little love muffin!
My card is a 5.5x3" Vanilla card, then a layer of patterned paper. I added some vanilla ribbon(su) some tulle(surprise!) and a sticky toffee(Elzybells) button. I stamped the little muffin image in a row, and then added my sentiment. I stamped the muffin onto some patterned paper, so I had a good variety of muffin papers around my muffins! They are all coordinating papers from the mini deck. I used the heart toothpick to stick into the "love muffin"...isn't that fun!? I colored my muffins with copics and then layerd my muffins onto some patterned paper.
This next card was made to play along with the LAD sketch challenge for this week. I love this little toaster image...it was a definate favorite of fans at CHA! I paper pieced the toaster, colored in the toast with copics. My rectangle scallops came into play with my Big Shot, vanilla and creamy caramel were the colors I used. I used my distress ink to sponge up the edges a bit, on all the vanilla edges. My button is a sticky toffee(Elzybells) button with a bit of tulle and twine.

In a pickle...isn't that a fun sentiment? I know a couple of people that would really get a kick out of this card...can't wait to send it ou! The layout for this card was inspired by CPS 156. I used a circle instead of a rectangle, but really liked the clean and fresh layout.

I stamped my pickle jar, colored it with copics, mounted it onto some great green paper...cut into a scallop circle with my nesties. Oh, I did paper piece the lid of the jar--I wanted it to look like a fabric covered lid--nice deisgn of that jar!! I attached a couple of strips of paper, one scalloped by my scallop border punch, then added some vanilla ribbon(su). I added my sentiment and then added my pickle jar with dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by today! I appreicate you so much! I hope you have a great day! I've got a card class at the elementary school today, so I'm working on getting all finished up. I'll share our projects tomorrow...they turned out really fun.
Have a great one...
