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!
