Now if you forget that... nevermind, you won't. :D
Today each design team member is showing off one of the new "foodie" stamps!
I'm showcasing one of the apron combos (it's a build an apron set!) called Tina's Kitchen.
The sentiment is also from this set. :D
This is my recipe holder! I love making those big wooden clothespins into recipe holders for the kitchen. It's a great way to not get food splattered all over your index cards. You can use any size... this one happens to be a little monstorous, but i thought it was so fun and it was only 2.99 at AC moore. :D Those who have been following my blog for awhile might remember THIS VERSION i made for my sister. :) That post also give a little bit more of a step by step picture tutorial.
For the above recipe holder, i did not do any crackle. I simply painting it 1 coat of red acrylic paint. The wood grain came thru a little bit, which i decided i really liked, so i left it be. However, one of my favoritist things when working with bare wood is antiquing medium. it can be found in the same aisle of the craft store as the acrylic paint. It's a little bit more "gelly" like than paint and takes longer to dry. Just use a sponge... get it wet but wring ALL the water out. Then brush the antiquing medium along all your edges to give a more worn look. It's like sponging the edges of a card. :D
Now i wanted to give this a little something extra, so i ran some dotted ribbon (SU) up and down both sides. here's a more "aerial view".
Now to the part that is actually from this release! :D Tina's Kitchen is a super fun new set with various apron bits that you can custom put together to create your apron. Whether you want a more male apron, girlie apron, etc. There is also a few fun sentiments to go with the set.
This set works pretty seamlessly with the other foodie stamps being released. If you're doing the blog hop, you're getting to check them out. if you have jus come to my blog... you need to go back to the beginning at the PMS blog!
Now it's time to hop to Shaela, the designer of this awesome set!
Dont forget our release party is tonight at 8pm CST in our FORUM! Hope to see you there!
