Something I Whipped Up

I just got this Paper Pretties stamp set, Sweets for the Sweet, in the mail today from Christie, and thought that I would "whip something up" for today's Prettie Thursday. I putzed around with this card for entirely too long, waiting patiently for my mojo to come running back to me, but alas, this was all I could manage without it.

I have had a cold since Sunday, and though I've definitely felt worse, I haven't felt much like wandering into my stamp room for the majority of the week. Today though, I felt more energized, so I gave it a go. Here's the result.

Note: It's not the set's fault. It's an adorable cooking set that I will probably make my Cookie Exchange invites with for this year. Today just wasn't it's day, here in the DuBosque house. Perhaps next week, I'll try and do it justice...

Okay, enough about that! I used Basic Gray's Sultry PP for my color inspiration. I paper pieced the oven mit, and added some Liquid Applique to the top. The silver on the main image was done with a silver Stardust pen. The rest is colored with Copics.

Ribbon is SU, as well as the felt flowers. The black flower centers are Bella Dots. I just got a package of those (along with some "needed" Bellas) in the mail the other day, and couldn't wait to use them! Lastly, to finish of the card, I tucked a spatula charm (also Stamping Bella) into the ribbon bow, and did some piercing up the side of the PP.

The card's not terrible, but it's not my favorite. Maybe it'll be yours?! ;)

Till next time...
