Good Morning Everyone!!

Today over at 2 Sketches 4 You - Kazan has created this awesome sketch for us to play with! And the sponser this week is Clear and Simple Stamps - love how fun the images that they have are! I had a chance to use their Gourmet Darling set and loved the different possibilities that were all in one stamp set. Kazan's sketch reminded me of the front of an apron - so I created a little apron card with the sentiment: "What's cooking" and created the background paper with the words: "yum yum yum yum..." etc. with one of the stamp sets from the set. I love that you can see right where you are stamping with the clear stamps and can easily position your stamp to create background paper in a flash :) I had a lot of fun creating this card - especially because I made it for a friend of mine who is a terrific cook and will be graduating from culinary school next year! It is so fun to make a card for someone in mind

 :) Here is the front of the card: To make it - I created an A2 card and the took a 2" circle and traced it on either side (so that it covered half the top corner) and then cut it.


and here it is opened up:


and here is a close up of the background paper with the "yum yum yum" stamped and the little pocket:


Card Details:
Paper: Hot Red Gingham from the Paper Studio, Red Pepper Linen (from ANW Crestwood), black from Paper Company
Stamps:  Gourmet Darling set from Clear and Simple Stamps
Ink: Stazon Black and Ruby Red from SU!
Accessories: Teresa Collins paper with the fork/knife and spoon, Kaiser Rhinestones, Lattice punch from Martha Stewart, Red bling from Martha Stewart, corner rounder, black glaze pen from Sakura, eyelets and Cropadile, ribbon from stash, button from Whirligig collection, string for tag, hole puncher.

I loved playing this sketch and using these Gourmet stamps!!! Can't wait to see what lovely creations you come up with Kazan's sketch!!!

Thanks so much for visiting my little corner !!!
Hope your Monday is turning out to be bright and fantastic!!!

Big hugs and smiles!
Sankari :)
