Kitchen Sink Monday

I hope you had a good weekend! I'm glad you could stop by and see what's cookin' in the Kitchen this week Speaking of cooking, I made Betty Crockers Better than Almost Anything Cake for my family over the weekend, and I don't think I've ever seen anything disappear so fast! So why am I talking about cooking, well it does fit in with my post today. You see, I'm multi-tasking again this week, combining my Kitchen Sink Monday post with MJ's Techno Stamper Sketch. This weeks sketch is to make an Apron Card.

After many searches looking for the perfect Apron Pattern, I decided to use my Stampin' Up! Oval Punches to create the Arm and Neck openings. My first thought was to use Spellbinders Oval Dies, which in fact I did on my mock sample (which BTW hit the garbage can), but it was late and I was having "issues", thus the easy stampers way out - punches!

I used the Drywall Stitching Technique and a Black Marker for my stitching. Drywall Tape works relatively well around the arm and neck holes, you'd be surprised! For my stamped images I used Kitchen Sink Stamps Multi Step Berries, stamping the berries as follows: #2 Real Red, #3 Ruby Red, #1 Red stamped off once; the stems #2 Garden Green, #1 Garden Green Stamped off. The sentiments were stamped in Black Archival using a SAMJ. If you can't read the sentiment on the DSP, it reads "the Fruits of Summer".
