Whisking You a Happy Day

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog this last Saturday of July. I can't believe we are about ready to welcome August! This summer is certainly flying by at a rapid rate of speed (LOL)!!!

We are going to be heading out for our annual Family reunion today. It will be a good time with family. Usually there are about 70 of us in attendance. I made some stuffed banana peppers. The peppers are from my hubby's garden. I stuff them with a combo of hot and sweet sausage. We really like them so I hope everyone else does. On the spicy scale I would give them a medium rating. 

So now onto my card for today. This one I created for my weekly DT post on the CottageCutz Blog. A new line of Stamps & Dies have been introduced under the name of Lil' Bluebird Designs. Today for your viewing pleasure I am featuring the new In the Kitchen stamp & Coordinating die set. 

I created a birthday card for my next door neighbor who is an avid baker and shares many of her creations with my hubby and I. A card using these new stamps would be perfect for her. So let's get started with some details on how I created my card.

Design Steps:

I started my card by stamping and coloring the images. The coordinating dies made it so easy to cut the images.
I used a combination of alcohol markers and Prismacolor pencils as my coloring medium. The photo below shows the markers and pencils I used.
Before I started card assembly, I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set. I used my MISTI just in case a double inking was needed.
Once that was done I put together my card layout. I wanted to use designer paper for the background images but I didn't have paper that wasn't overpowering the images. Then I happened to notice some washi tape that I had. So I covered a panel of white cardstock with the tape. I used the 3rd largest Double Stitched Rectangle die and the 4th largest Stitched Square die and cut from the washi tape panel I created.
Now I am ready to start card assembly. I attached the images to the washi tape panels with glue dots and the panels to the image base with double sided tape. The vanilla image panel is 4 1/8" x 5 3/8".
To complete my card, I added a mint green card base 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and scattered a few mint green enamel dots. Well, that's it for me for this post. So until next time........God bless.
