Kiss the Cook

Happy Friday!

Yikes, it's almost the end of October!!! OMG, where did the month go?

I finally made an easel card for Magnolia-licious Highlites. That's the challenge for October...to make an easel card.

I didn't make this monochromatic which was the optional challenge (sorry Suzanne), but rather I went with the challenge of Colour Create. Their Challenge 30 is ... ALL WHITE ... we'd like to see your makes with colour on the image only.

I thought this would be interesting to do, but it was sooo... hard not to even add a bit of colour by distressing the edges which I like to do. I had to rely on stitching, 3-d work and embelishments to make the white part noticeable.

A couple more challenges for this card:

At A Spoon Full of Sugar it's their Challenge 75. "For our Challenge this week we would like to see Kitchen/Cooking themed projects."

And this is also for Kellie's first Magnolia Down Under Store challenge. You can enter here. "Make a card or creation with at least ONE stamp from the Magnolia Yummy For Your Tummy Collection." Come on ladies, that's what you've all been doing anyway. Get your entries in by Friday, Nov. 13.

Enjoy your day and have a wonderful weekend!!!


Stamp: Magnolia Kitchen Tilda, sentiment from Bo Bunny What U Got Cookin' Clearly Stamps.

Tools: Martha Stewart border and corner punches Deco Fan.
Misc.: Vintage Attic Treasures pearls.

DP: Embosed vine cardstock from Michaels, everything else is plain white cardstock.

This is absolutely STUNNING! It showcases Tilda perfectly, she just pops. It would be fun to try this in all white with Tilda in old looking old fashioned, antiqued so to speak. LOL Does that make any sense, herd to describe.
Beautiful card Norma.
hugs,
Diana

Norma, this card is striking! That Tilda image all colored up in red just pops off the paper with all that beautiful white overlayed. Very creative and such a gorgous result.
