Whisking You a Happy Day (new stamps & die)

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Saturday edition of the Blog.

IT'S NEW RELEASE TIME! The Scrapping Cottage has just added a new brand to the company line. Lil' Bluebird Designs is being introduced with 16 new Photopolymer Clear Stamp Sets and 16 coordinating dies. There are stamps for so many of your card making occasions and then some. The coordinating dies just make it a perfect fit for your card making designs. 

Today for your viewing pleasure I am featuring the new In the Kitchen stamp & Coordinating die set. I created a birthday card for my next door neighbor who is an avid baker and shares many of her creations with my hubby and I. A card using these new stamps would be perfect for her. So let's get started with some details on how I created my card.

Design Steps:

I started my card by stamping and coloring the images. The coordinating dies made it so easy to cut the images.  
I used a combination of alcohol markers and Prismacolor pencils as my coloring medium. The photo below shows the markers and pencils I used. 
Before I started card assembly, I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set. I used my MISTI just in case a double inking was needed. 
Once that was done I put together my card layout. I wanted to use designer paper for the background images but I didn't have paper that wasn't overpowering the images. Then I happened to notice some washi tape that I had. So I covered a panel of white cardstock with the tape. I used the 3rd largest Double Stitched Rectangle die and the 4th largest Stitched Square die and cut from the washi tape panel I created. 
Now I am ready to start card assembly. I attached the images to the washi tape panels with glue dots and the panels to the image base with double sided tape. The vanilla image panel is 4 1/8" x 5 3/8".
To complete my card, I added a mint green card base 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and scattered a few mint green enamel dots. 
And that's it for me for this post. I hope I have given you an idea for this new stamp & die set. Many more samples coming from the DT next week. See you again next Saturday.

What a pretty card for someone who loves to cook or bake. Your washi background panel is a great idea.
