mmmm can you smell the baked goods?

Hello - I needed some fun time last night... just down time of really playing with my stuff. And that is what I did! I pulled out a few of my newer Alota Rubberstamps images "Julia's Kitchen Set" How wonderful and fun is this?

I colored with my Copics and high lighted with Sakura glaze pens. Then they were all cut out. I colored the inside of the stove and then cut open the door and glued the pie into place. I just love how that came out....... you can almost smell it!For my card I used mostly scraps! A white card stock for the base. Then a piece of light brown Core'dinations that I sanded. I then found a scrap for the "wallpaper", it was two sided, so the back side became my base board and top border - punched with a EK Success wave punch and then a second one in a darker color laid behind the first to show off the dots and give it a band and the bottom. Then I thought it needed something more... so I pulled out an Alota wallpaper border and created a floral band at the top. Love my cozy kitchen ... don't you!

Then I was trying to figure out what sentiment I wanted this card for... and I found one more Alota Stamps "Let's Do Lunch" ... seemed just too perfect, so I used up the last of the scraps on the inside with it.
I pop dotted Julia off of the card so I think this one qualifies for the Paper Craft Planet Alota Group challenge that is going on right now to make a 3-D card - a stretch yes I know but hey she is popped off the card and the door to the stove opens so that is sort of 3-D. :0)

Hope you will visit the site and join the challenge... see you tomorrow :0)

This is totally cute and, yes, I can smell that pie... in my mind it's apple and there's some homemade vanilla ice cream on the table waiting for the nice hot pie :)
