This week's Simply Sunday Challenge over at Getting Cricky is all about food. The theme is Lunchbox Lovin' and what a great matchup with Kristal's Food for Thought stamp set (I just love the cute sayings in this set and Kristal donates $1 from the sale of each stamp set to a very worthy charity). Before I share my card with you, I want to let you know that I won last week's Simply Sunday challenge (Fashionista theme - if you didn't see it already, you can see my card HERE) and will be the Guest Designer this Sunday. I am so excited so be sure to stop back on Sunday.
My card for this week's challenge features a cutting file from the sweet and talented Shirley Clark. The papers are all from my stash so I am not sure where some of them are from. I know the striped piece is from Michael's (Recollections) and the blue strip is Bazzill, but the rest I have no idea. I used my Bazzill In Stitch'z template for the stitching (silly stitches). The buttons and snaps are from my stash. I am not sure how I feel about the snaps I used. I think they are a little too pastel, but it is what I had on hand. I pop-dotted the one tomato for added dimension. The sentiment is from K Andrew's Food for Thought stamp set (which you can find HERE). The faces on the tomatoes are from Peachy Keen Stamps (Everyday Faces and Wide Eyed Kids).
I have a tip to share about the face stamps. I am never sure which face I want to use and it is hard for me to visualize without actually seeing the face on my project. Rather than pull out each stamp and hold it over the card, I decided to stamp all my faces on a transparency sheet.
Now I can easily hold each face over my image and see which one I like best.
This worked really well for me. Maybe someone else will find it useful as well. Now I just need to label each face so I know where to find the corresponding stamp. Don't forget to stop back on Sunday to see my project for the Guest Designer spot at Getting Cricky.
Thanks for stopping by!
