The challenge at Double D is Kitchen is the Heart of the Home. Wow! This was a tough one for me. Seriously. I had no stamps or dies that I could use for this challenge. So I had a REAL challenge. I remembered one die that I got a long time ago, and never used that had kitchen utensils, a placemat and palate. I pulled that one out and just looked at it for a long time. Nothing came! What to do?
When my daughter was little, we spent a lot of time on the kitchen baking. We had many cookie cutters for the different holidays and had fun baking cupcakes. My memories brought me some motivation. I would have to alter some stamp sets, but that was possible.
Here is the mood board.
Remember, my card is the memories that I have of the kitchen being the heart of the home.
I die cut the utensils to make a stencil and did my background with them using Stampin Up ink Crumb Cake. I used one of the spoons and the bowl die to add to the scene. Colored them up with Spectrum Noir markers. ( getting used to them) Next, I partially stamped the image from My Favorite Things, Crafty Things, placed the bowl and the spoon in her hands. This panel was placed on a Kraft and then a red card stock base. I had to finish the inside with another MFT stamp called Hello Cupcake.
As I said this was a real challenge. Thanks Diane and Darlene and all of the design team for some inspiration.
I will be adding this to the challenge at Double D Challenge
