What's Cooking?? Cards that's what...

I have been a little busy making cards these last couple of days. I really am loving the idea that I am using up supplies that I have had forever and papers that I hadn't touched because I was saving it for something special. What's more special than a card just for no reason or one just for your special day?

So I wanted to take a moment to upload the 4 of the 8 cards that I did...hope you get inspiration from them. I love the papers that I used and was glad that I finally used some of that special stash. These cards have stamped images...

but these cards have absolutely no stamping at all. The images are actually diecuts that I have embellished to make them work for this card. I have had this apron forever (from Quickutz) and I had only used it once before (to send some aprons to a fellow scrapper) and I had these saying forever to use on cards. Then I saw a fellow scrapper use stamps that had an apron and something else and I decided that it was time to break out all those sayings and dies and get busy. And so I did. (Supplies; Qk apron, BBQ dies and swirls goosebumps folder, and Bosskut oven mitt, and Spellbinders labels and scalloped rectangle dies. We R Memory Keepers papers, blue gingham ribbon is MM, and red ribbon is unknown, the what's cooking was created with American crafts rub-ons (purkey), and Tim Holtz tea dye distress inks.)

Here is a close up of the diecuts. I have plans to make several cards in the next month using only diecuts and stickers/rub-ons and misc supplies. Just to prove that it can be done! I am hoping that I will have enough time to upload all the pictures of them.

I don't know if I have mentioned this before but I usually spend the summer making cards because it is something that I usually don't do at all in the fall/winter. So most of my posts will be about them. And I will have to eventually start working on scrapbook pages again (sooner than later,especially because I have a new little person to scrapbook). I even plan on creating a couple of fall themed albums again for ebay/ be on the lookout. The last one sold as a buy now and it was sold in a matter of hours.
Here is a link to the post that had the album in it
please note that any links to old ebay sells are no longer active. And ebay removes them after they are sold (I believe 90 days from when the sold).
