50s Kitchen Greetings to Go
Happy Monday! I was able to get quite a bit of crafting done this weekend. I was wandering around Hobby Lobby (dangerous) and found small wooden spoons and forks by Paper Studio. Even better, they were on sale. This are going to go great with this month's Club Scrap 50s Kitchen.
We'll start with the Greetings to Go (G2Go). I love making cards as you know. So it's usually the first thing I dig into when my kit arrives. I adore the colors of this kit. Over on the Club Scrap blog they show you some ideas for the cards. I generally copy a few of the ideas to get myself going and then take off in my own direction. This time...I really, really like the Z fold cards so I copied them almost exactly. Too cute! I wont repeat those for you. Here are a few of my favorites.
This card I wanted to use the bonus Cupcake Stencil. It has been awhile since I've used my stencils with ink. I usually use them with gelli plates or spackle. So It took me a few tries to get the hang of it down again. That's what scratch paper is for, right?! After finding the right combination of colors, I cut out the cupcake and added Flower Soft to the frosting to give it some dimension and pizzazz. Looks Yummy!
As I was browsing Pinterest I saw some apron cards which I thought would be a perfect idea for this kit. Here I cut out the "arms" of apron and embossed the card with the Darice embossing plate from the Tin Tiles kit. That made it a little bit more feminine. I used dimension adhesive squares that I found at the Dollar Tree to give the pocket a little lift for the utensils.
I found the perfect quote for the apron. I'm always saying "oops" when I cook, usually works out ok. However, I never so it when at work...that is usually "Ah, interesting." I kept looking at the card at this point and it was missing something. It looked like an apron but it didn't "feel" like an apron. It needed just that little extra neck piece. Now, it's one of my favorite cards!
