Now You’re Cooking

I had purchased this Now You're Cooking stamp thinking I'd do a fun class with it, but ran out of time to offer it.  I do think it is an adorable image…wish they would have left it in the new catalog…but it IS retiring.

I used Mary Jo's Lunchtime Sketch from last week, but didn't get it posted in time to submit it for her challenge.  It was a fun one…surprisingly similar to the Freshly Made Sketches one I did on Saturday!



I took my colors from the Domestic Goddess Designer Paper for this card.  The base is Pool Party and I layered on the Domestic Goddess plaid background.  Then I used a strip of the Floral pattern.  I cut a piece of Poppy Parade cardstock to layer along the side.  I stamped the Now You're Cooking image with Stampin' Write Markers in Pool Party, Poppy Parade and So Saffron on Whisper White and punched with the 2 1/2" circle punch.  I stamped You're Invited from Wedding Sweet in Basic Black on Pool Party and punched with the Modern Label punch. 


I thought it needed just a little more, so I used the Boho Blossom punch to make a flower similar to the ones in the designer paper.  The center flower is the Itty Bitty Trio flower and a tiny mini brad.  It is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals on the front.  Then I added a clear Itty Bitty Button tied with Pool Party Baker's Twine and placed it on the Oven Mitt.


I love the crisp clean look to this card!  Hope you enjoy it, too!

Cute, bright card, Connie.  There is something about this DSP that attracts me.  I love how you've duplicated the little flower!
