Everything Looks Delicious!

How cute are these stamps!!??! So I stumbled upon Love Cynthia’s Instagram on accident one day while browsing, and during that time she didn’t have any stamp sets. I followed her just for inspiration, but when she released her first stamp set I was so excited. But! I still didn’t buy any, because the thought of paying International shipping was discouraging for just a couple stamps. But when she she released more stamp sets, yup, I got those immediately.

So today’s card features the Foodie stamp set, and I just love them! I know Mama Elephant has a similar one, but I was not really into all the smiley faces on the food in that set, so when I saw this one, I was like… MINE.

You may think this is incredibly random, but I found my inspiration from a Target bag I saw sitting in the dumpster. I tried googling for an image to share with you, but I can’t find it! But it was a large target logo, made up of little varying sizes of target logos. So for my card, I drew a bulls eye in pencil to lay out my guidelines before I started stamping.

The one thing that made me nervous about stamping something like this, is accidentally getting ink where I don’t want it, so I had a baby wipe next to me to constantly make sure I didn’t have any ink on my fingers, palm, sleeve… wherever. When I finally finished stamping all the food, I let the ink dry before I erased the pencil guidelines. It would be sad if after all that work, you accidentally smeared it!

Now onto the fun part, coloring. I love soft colors, so that’s what I stuck to. Since these images were so small, I didn’t think it was necessary to do much detail in the coloring, so I kept it pretty simple. After I finished coloring, I was about to just glue the panel onto a base card, and be done….but I thought, maybe just a little more interest but not too much. So I partial cut a circle around my colored image, and used my stripes background stamp to create those yellow lines in the bottom half the card. And with a little cross stitching on the sides, now the card is done.

I think this card speaks for itself, don’t you? Sentiment not needed! I can dream of good comfort food, all day, every day!

Cheers,

I’ll also be submitting this card to the current Curtain Call Challenge for the theme girly.
