Inspired by Food! Wow, that is a dangerous place for me to go! There's not enough paper from CTMH to scrap all the breads, pastas, burgers, coffee, peanut butter treats, mochas, and ice cream I have eaten over a lifetime! I've been thinking about a card or layout over the past week and too many ideas came to mind. I suppose I should add at this point the challenge at Heart 2 Heart has been "Inspired by......" all month and this week it was FOOD! Yum!
So, I went into my photos and found this one from Katie's wedding last summer. Hmmm.......two cuties eating cotton candy. Cant' go wrong there! Next I went in search of some fun cuts in Cricut DS. I chose elements from: Kate's ABC's, Paper Lace, Country Fair, and of course one of the CTMH cartridges, Artiste! Next, I laid it all out in DS using the sketch from Atlantic Hearts. It really did look more like this sketch until I got my grubby little hands on all the embellishments! I hope you can see some similarity!
Since I was scrapping a wedding pic, I decided to get out some of the blue satin ribbon that is still hanging around -- and will be for generations to come -- along with some of the left over blue gems.
I gathered lots of other embellishments from CTMH along with pigment inks, embossing powder, glitter, seam binding, washi tape, glue, tulle from the wedding, Create a Shade Pearl paint, CTMH papers, homemade texture paste and stencil, etc.
Before placing any elements, I glued my piece of paper from Balloon Ride (retired) onto a piece of heavier cardstock. I knew I wanted to use some glue on this project and texture paste, so I wanted it a little more substantial than normal.
I started by gluing down the ribbon a little at a time and wrinkling it. The glue darkened where it contacted the ribbon, but that was ok with me. I glued in the second ribbon to make the inverted V and wrinkled it a bit. I left that to dry and prettied up my elements with inks, paints, glitters, etc.
I did a little background stamping with the CTMH Sweet and Lovely stamps and the sentiment is from CTMH Huntington Scrapbooking Workshop. I used a stencil I cut from Artbooking with my texture paste.
I honestly can't tell you names of all the embellishments; I'll give you a guess: Base and Bling, Color Ready Seam Binding, Chantilly,,,,,, hmm, I think that' all I can name! Some of the packaging was gone.
Only a few more days in August to check out the Inspired by...... at Heart 2 Heart and only a few days left to get that cute Owl stamp of the month from KatiesCorner!
