Hello!!! I hope your week is going well so far:) I am back again with another Wednesday Stamp Club Sketch for My Favorite Things as the October Guest Designer. Did you enjoy last week's sketch? There were so many gorgeous creations in the gallery. I can't wait to see what you come up with using this week's sketch - MFTWSC42. Here is my card.
I used the Bon Appetit stamp/die-namics set - LOVE it!!! The ticket tab was shortened using Joanne Basile's great cut and re-cut method. I also used a variation of that technique to create a smaller version of the postage stamp frame/insert from the First Class Friend set. The variation is that on the first pass through your die cut machine, only cut about 1/3 of the frame out. I use a Grand Calibur and the easiest way I have found to do this is to position my cutting mat off set over my base plate so that the portion of the die you don't want cut is not in the sandwich. I think with other machines you can do something similar or only run your sandwich a portion of the way and reverse out :) You then re-position your partial cut on your die to cut the size you need, tape in place, and run through your die cut machine again. I LOVE that I can do this with this die because it makes it so versatile!!!
Here is a close-up of my focal image. Can you see the embossed measure markings on the measuring cup - so perfect! Also notice the world's tiniest piece of foam tape - lol! I stamped the gingham pattern from the Bon Appetit set in second generation Goldrush ink. The sentiment and hearts are also part of this set.
Here is the inside all done up with a couple more images from Bon Appetit and some of the sweet die-namics from that set, as well as the Postage Edge die-namics.
