It's new release day over at Clear and Simple Stamps! I am so excited that we get to showcase my favorite sets first - the foodie fun series features all of my favorite junk foods and lovey phrases, some fun dies, and a very gorgeous apron...
I'm featuring foodie fun and foodie fun sentiments in my projects today (along with a whimsical little frame that you'll be introduced to later on in the week):
Nothing goes together like burgers and fries, right? I was crafting with my 8 year old daughter, Sofia, and she saw the "bff" sentiment (from a new rag doll set!) and said "mom, I think the burger and fries are BFFs." It's a big word in our home lately - everyone is Sofia's bff, but I thought it was such a cute idea, so I went with it. The card is obviously hers now, and the biggest question is which one of her pint-sized bffs will be on the receiving end this week :)
A speedy how-to: I masked the burger, then stamped the fries, then masked that too for a little sunburst action over-top. It looks like fast-food on a card, with that bright red case base and yellow stripes. so fun.
My next card cools down the temperature a bit. From a hot red to a cool argyle blue background, and from steamy burgers to a frozen treat...
This card is a smaller and cuter - at 3.5x5 inches...the perfect little notecard size. I love the tall, skinny font of the "i love you more than" paired with the script "ice cream" - and with a glossy cherry on top, it's just adorable.
the tiny heart at the bottom doesn't hurt either.
My next card goes taller and skinnier:
The set has all kinds of fun combinations - I didn't use up half of them here. We go together like...
burgers & fries...
mustard & pretzels (although, I'm not a mustard fan, truth be told... why mess up a perfectly good, buttery soft pretzel with mustard? nuh-uh. but it sure looks cute on the card.)
pb & j...
and pancakes & syrup.
I'll take one of each, please.... hee. I hope you like what I've created today!
