Kitchen....

Is the theme of this week's dare set by Jane.....

'You can do anything ! yep.....anything..... as long as it incorporates something from your kitchen............? !! '

So here goes...




'Bean' Missing You...

Basic Grey Colour Me Silly papers.

Greeting printed onto greaseproof paper- and stitched onto card - fonts are 2Peas Garden Girl, Cafe Rojo and Digs My Heart.

Stitched Nescafe label onto red cardstock and adhered to card.

Hand drew flowers and stems, cut out and doodled onto them. Buttons are from a charity shop (I think!) and ribbon is from Little Silver Hat

Chipboard photo corner is Scenic Route and coffee bean was cut out from a label and Glossy Accented to make it super shiny :)



Christmas Tags....

Tags cut from American Crafts Christmas papers

Strips and rectangles of contrasting paper adhered to tags.

All tags have been hand stitched and inked.

The Christmas trees are from Paperchase, ribbon is from a market stall :)

The first tag has a tag from some spring onions and a printed greeting adhered to it.

The second tag has a brad layered onto a tap washer (!)

The third has a bottle cap that Josh kindly squished for me in my Sizzix machine and punched circles added to create a greeting.

This week's dare was fantastic fun to do - if a little brain taxing :) All of the other amazing cards are now on the Daring Cardmakers blog ... Have fun, can't wait to see what you all create :)
