Barbara is today's hostess, and her colors of Perfect Plum, Certainly Celery and Chocolate Chip, were perfect for my creation! Today's sponsor is Clear and Simple Stamps, and the stamp set I am using is called Fresh from the Garden. They are wonderful clear stamps---I had a lot of fun using them! We would love to see what you can come up with using these colors, and if you have any Clear and Simple stamps, feel free to use them! Remember that if you don't have the exact colors, use something similar, and since we do have a sponsor this week, there are some guidelines, as well as a prize being offered, so be sure to check out ALL the details on the CTD blog!
Since my stamps were of a garden theme, I used them to make a simple recipe card. I didn't want to add a lot of embellishments which would make my card too thick, so I simply did some layering, typed out my recipe and then embellished the card with a scallop and a stamped eggplant colored with a Perfect Plum marker. The tab, which was punched with SU's Tab Punch, was stamped in Perfect Plum, as was the little seed packet and the word "eggplant" on the scallop. Because these are clear stamps, I could curve the word to fit the shape of my scallop! I finished my recipe on the other side and added another little sentiment and some more veggies at the bottom.
When having a potluck or covered dish, it is nice to have a little sign to tell people what your dish is! For the little salad "poke" sign, I simply stamped the lettuce image in Perfect Plum and colored it with a Certainly Celery marker, and adhered it to some layers. To make the poke itself, I diecut a circle in Perfect Plum and used the horizontal slot punch to make two slots:
And adhered my stamped image:
For the "flag", I used my computer to print out my salad name, then trimmed and folded it; I added a glue dot right at the fold and glued it to the poke. Now lets see what the others have created:
