What's Cookin'?

Basic Grey has done it again. I don't know how they keep coming out with more beautiful papers, but they do. This collection is called Wisteria and it is luscious!

The layout for today's card is SCS sketch challenge #227. I found this Lockhart stamp at Ellen Hutson's while shopping for Nestabilities and I just fell in love with it. I think aprons are really making a come back and I'm so glad. There is something so comforting about them. They make me think of simpler times. Times like those of Ozzie and Harriet and Leave it to Beaver. I stamped the image on a sheet of the BG paper and the cut it out. I used Copic markers to color some of the trim and then popped it up on dimensionals. The sentiment is computer generated using CK Nostalgia font. I also daubed on a bit of Distress Ink to the Vanilla card stock.

We had a great trip to Philadelphia last week for our son's wedding. Welcome to the family Trina! We had minimal time for sightseeing but covered the highlights, Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, Christ Church, and of course Cheese steak sandwiches! It always feels great to be home though. Thanks for checking in.

It's all about the details:
Card stock: Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper: Basic Grey Wisteria

Stamps: Lockhart Stamp Co.
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Distress Ink
Accessories: Dimensionals
Tools: SU Oval, Scalloped Oval and Border Punches, Copic Markers

Cute card and what a pretty apron image. I laughed when you mentioned Ozzie and Harriet and Leave It to Beaver...those were sure simpler times but we're dating ourselves aren't we!
