Fresh Baked.....

Hello everyone: We have a new challenge over at SHOPPING OUR STASH for you to play with, this time we want to see some good old fashioned FUSSY CUTTING, no die cutting OK? just grab your scissors and snip, snip, snip something, create a card and play along.  Here is my card, I hope it will inspire you to join my teammates and me in the gallery. (Maybe you'll also feel the urge to bake some cookies,😉)

This cute little apron image is from my retired stash of Flourishes stamp sets, this particular set is called "Fresh Baked", all images are from the very talented Marcella Hawley) the spoon and cookies are from this set too.  I stamped the apron 3 times, once on a piece of Lili of the Valley pattern paper because I wanted the little yellow flowers on it, then, I stamped the ruffle and the little recipe and wood spoon sticking out of the little pocket on to some scrap water color paper, colored it and fussy cut them, I made a cut right on the top of that apron pocket to stick the recipe to make it look like it's actually sticking out of it, then I put some dimensional foam under the skirt of the apron after I did a bit of shading with Prismacolor pencils, and attached it to the ruffle, then I put a few more foam dimensionals behind the apron and attached it to a panel of cream card stock that I sponged with a bit of Hello Honey ink, the spoon and cookies were also colored and fussy cut and attached with foam.

Here are some close ups of this images.

And here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

The sentiment is from the set.
I didn't use one single die to create this card, just my paper cutter to cut the panels.
I hope you find some time to play along with us over at SHOPPING OUR STASH, for more inspiration please visit the challenge blog and check out my teammates awesome creations.
Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

Oh wow... This is such a bright and cheerful card! That spoon must have been slightly tricky to cut based on the size! Love it, Miss Maria!

Hi, Maria! I didn't realize you were part of this challenge, too. I love anything that involves using what's already in our stash. I'm on a buying hold until I make some progress. This is a most adorable card with a darling stamp set! That apron is so cute and I love the yellow!
