Great Recipes Start with Great Ingredients

At least that is what my husband, an ex-sous chef, always tells me! I suppose in this case my 'great ingredients' are great stamps and supplies. And the recipe can be shared with friends and family on my finished recipe card project.

This project was my first chance to tryout my new Copic markers...there definately is a learning curve involved with using them. I learned a few things- for instance I need to use a darker color to shadow since is barely shows up in the photo. Also, the 'blender' isnt really a blender so much as a color remover! I still have to work on blending, I guess. Im not exactly sure how to accomplish a truely belended line at this point. The leaves leave something to be desired but in general, Im happy with my first attempt.

My pocket card was made to share a favorite recipe and measures 6 1/4" x 4". And it showcases three stamps from the new Olive You Artful Inkables set. Other supplies include, Creamy Caramel, Old Olive and Chocolate Chip card stock by SU; Brilliance Graphite Black ink and Chocolate chip SU! ink, Brown, olive and green gingham grosgrain ribbon and paper punches (1/8", corner rounder and frame corner punch).

Thanks for looking and dont forget: All orders over $35 will be free of all shipping charges (US and Canada only) for the rest of the month!

Absolutely gorgeous! I love your envelope and your coloring is wonderful- I knew you would take to Copics like a duck to water! I'm working on a recipe book using that same stamp! It is taking me a bit longer than I thought but hope to have it finished by tomorrow!

Wonderful card and those are great stamps too. Love the pocket card. The colors you chose go so well with your recipe theme too. Not being a copic "babe" like you are...I think your coloring is wonderful. It looks like it takes a lot of patience!Again, wonderful job on this card!
