Things Are Cooking at Friday Sketchers 59!!



A very Happy Friday everyone!!! Happy July and for many I wish for you a safe and happy upcoming holiday...for those of you who are not celebrating a holiday, you can pretend!!!


It is time for Friday Sketchers 59 where the quintessentially talented Claudia is hosting this week. She has a very exciting and fun challenge for us with a wonderful prize that can be won by YOU!! I hope you will come see our sample cards and join with us this week. Please upload your cards so we can see your wonderful and creative interpretations of Claudia's sketch. We will be looking forward to your joining with us!!

And welcome to Cooking Time! My sample card this week uses two delightful stamps from hÄnglar & stÄnglar -- the precious cupcake girl and the darling wooden mixing cabinet with all the ingredients. To celebrate the Fourth of July holiday and to join in with Kerry's Three Clovers Thursday Challenge and Janet's Corrosive Challenge, I have made my card in the red/white/blue colorway. I used Bazzill CS for the card base, PTI for all matting, MME Breaking Free DP, and Cryogen White for images and image panel. You will notice that in order to use a horizontal motif panel I had to flip the sketch 90 degrees but I kept all of the details and positioning of Claudia's sketch.

I stitched the base panels, stamped the 2 images, colored with Copics, cut out and propped up on dimensional tape. I also used a tiny touch of silver Spica on the hardware and a spot of Diamond Glaze on the cupcake cherry. The images are set on a Copic colored hardwood floor and I added a triple spoon button for wall decoration in the scene. I added red/ecru gingham ribbon and used a flat bow with metal mixing spoon for the embellishment/sentiment requirement. Finally I added a few red mini-brads and 3 vintage buttons laced with tiny red ribbon that I wanted to look like 3 red ribbons that she won!!!! NOW I am ready to eat that yummy cupcake!!!!!

The inside is just left over scraps of DP from the front, stitching, a bit of the gingham ribbon from the front, and another spoon button on the jotting spot.

Thank you so much for dropping by. I hope that you will leave us a note telling us what you think of these cute H&S images and the card. Best wishes for a marvelous weekend...be safe and enjoy many smiles!! Bunches of hugs!!!

Hello Dear Jacque!!
I don't know how you are finding the time and patience to make these beautiful cards when your life is upside down!
I love your H&S images - of course you will know that LOL. Your card is incredable. Love the silver spoon and the measuring spoons and the lovely kitchen cupboard with all the goodies on the top. Your little girl is a hoot in her chef's hat and has been very busy making her cupcake! Looks like she has won ribbons for her baking!!! LOL
It is most delightful and as beautiful as all of your work.
Love you, Candy
