Kiss the Cook

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you all are having a wonderful day. I have to give special thanks to Suzanne Dean for her inspiration for my card today. Without her, I never would have known about The Stampin Place, which has so many wondeful scenes (I've used some already with Magnolia and Whiff of Joy stamps on my blog). Suzanne used this same kitchen scene on her blog last month and it is so awesome. You can view her card here .

For my card today, I stamped the kitchen scene with Memento black ink onto Georgia Pacific cardstock and colored it in with my copics. I added Glossy Accents to the window and clock face and I used a white gel pen for some highlights. Next, I stamped Hanna (from the Kiss the Cook set from Hanna Stamps), colored her with copics, and cut her out. I created my card base, which measures 5x7, out of SU's Regal Rose. I layered Always Artichoke on top of that followed by my designer paper from DCWV Nana's Nursery baby girl stack. I then mounted my kitchen image onto Regal Rose followed by Always Artichoke and placed that onto my card base. I then adhered Hanna with dimensionals.

The sentiment is also from Hanna Stamps. I stamped it onto Regal Rose and punched it out with SU's 1 1/4 circle punch. I then punched out the Always Artichoke circle using SU's 1 3/8 circle punch and adhered the sentiment to the card base. For a finishing touch, I added pink ribbon from Michael's.

I'd love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day and I'll be back with more tomorrow :)

Hugs, Christine
