Stampin Sisters in Christ ( SSC) Challenge #1

WooHoo ... two cards posted in two days ! That's a good feeling ! First , I want to apologize for the " busy" photo. I take my shots in my stamping room right by the big picture window which ,unfortunately, is also where my mess is, so I really hope you can see the card for the clutter ! One day I'll get the photo "cube" which should make things better. Now onto the card. This card was made for the Stampin Sisters in Christ #1 challenge which is use to food or drink on your card. I've had this cookie stamp ( Mail Expressions) for years and thought it would be fun to ink it up again. The sentiment( Darcies ) was broken up into two . Both the cookies and the sentiment were stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa. The sentiments were cut out with a tag Nestie. The cookies were embossed slightly and then the chips were colored in with a Chocolate Chip ( !) marker to make them pop a little. They were then cut out and popped up with dimensionals. The papers are by K&C 's Wild Saffron pack. The upper left corner of the dp was paper pierced on reverse to make it stand out a little better. Buttons ( Hero Arts ) and ribbon finish off the look . I would so love to have some real chocolate chip cookies today( yum, yum ) but gotta watch that cholesterol !

Have a good Wednesday !

Hey Crystal! Cute card! Love the cookies! Yummy!
Ha! That's NOT clutter! You don't have to get a cube...just lean two pieces of white cardstock up against something and crop out the edges...cheaper. Hugs, Lisa

Love your card! It has such a lovely vintage look! I see Lisa already gave you the tip about using cardstock as a background. I lean my CS against a large vase, and place another piece under the card. It works great! Happy stamping!

Another tip: Picasa 3 is a free download. Do a search and find it on the web. It is great for editing pix. You can use the "Text" in the "Basic Fixes" section to watermark your pix. That's what I use for my name and date. Hope this helps!
