I teach a class each month at the Whisk & Barrel Cafe in Newton, NC. They are also a great bakery. The inspiration for this card comes from a blackboard they have as a decor piece.
So this is the card I made with this inspiration.
The What's Cookin' bundle was perfect to make this card for the Whisk & Barrel. This card begins with a base of Thick Basic White 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4.
The designer paper is from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper pack. The main piece measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. There is a strip of wood look paper at the bottom that is 1 x 4 1/4. This paper is on the back of the larger piece.
For the blackboard, cut a piece of Basic Black card stock to 3 x 3 1/2. I lined up the three cooking tools on one stamp and stamped in Versamark. Add white embossing powder from the Basics Embossing Powders. Heat with the Heat Tool. Rub some white ink over the surface to make it look like a blackboard. Use a sponge dauber and White Craft Stampin' Ink.
The word SWEET is from the Sweet Strawberries stamp set and the word LIFE is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set. Stamp the sayings on Basic White using Versamark. Add black emboss powder from the Basics powders. Heat with Heat Tool and cut around the words needed. Add to the blackboard in the center.
Cut the cutting board with the Cookin' dies from Crumb Cake card stock. Using a Blending Brush add some Early Espresso ink to help the pattern show up better. Add with dimensionals.
The bowl is stamped in Memento Black on designer paper from the Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper. It's the Pool Party dots paper. Cut it out with the dies along with the whisk and the spatula. Add all to the card. The bowl and whisk are on dimensionals. I put a dimensional piece on part of the handle of the whisk and a little glue on the part that is on top of the bowl. The spatula is glued down to look like it's in the bowl.
The saying is from the What's Cookin' stamp set. Stamp in Memento Black on Pool Party. Trim. Part is glued to the cutting board and part has a dimensional piece.
For the inside of the card, all of the stamping is in Memento Black and from the What's Cookin' stamp set.
Thanks for spending some time with me today. I hope you found some inspiration.
