"Voila!" is the name of this chef stamp set from Stampin' Up. I thought he'd be perfect for a recipe holder. The big close pin was in the $1 bin at Target quite some time ago. I picked up a few of them to use for Christmas presents. So today I got a jump start to make one because the Paper Cutz Challenge #11 is to use a Pumpkin Pie recipe in your project.
The recipe card was made with the SU "From the Kitchen of" stamp set. I've had this set for a couple years and I'm finally busting it out. My SU friends have it too, and we also have recipe boxes that we're going to decorate some year. They're from the Christmas cookie swap that never happened two years ago. Too bad this is one of those stories that you have to be there for to find amusing but believe me when Eileen, Edna and Maddy read this they'll be laughing but I digress.
The color scheme is coffee and cream with a cherry on top for the Rosie Dee challenge #55. In case you didn't notice there's a cherry on the top of the dessert on the recipe card.
This week the Pile It On challenge#18 is to make it 3-D and this is anything but a flat card. With Pile It On the twist is to combine at least one other challenge with the one they post. You can find lots of challenges to try there.
The other details are that the card was stamped in SU Pumpkin Pie, the chef was stamped in Memento Tuxedo black and paper pieced with SEI "Oxford". His hat and scarf were covered with distress Scattered Straw Stickles and his buttons are made with Gunmetal Stickles. The rest was colored with copics.
Thanks for stopping by, if you have time leave a comment. Those comments make my day.
