Best Family Chef - Stampin' Up! What's Cookin'

   The Design Team at The Paper Players is back with a fun new challenge!  Leanne has given us a fantastic tic-tac-toe board this week!  So many ways to go with all of these choices!  Pick a row or column and include all 3 items on your card!

  For my card I chose the center down column; Circle, Red and DSP.  And I inked up my new What's Cookin' stamp set for the first time.

  Every family has a top chef who should be applauded for their cooking and dedication to making sure everyone is fed.  This set is a great one to use to make sure that person knows they are appreciated.  I love all the little kitchen utensils and coordinating die cuts.

  I started with a Gray Granite base topped with a layer of In Good Taste DSP in a nice tile pattern.  Looks like a kitchen backsplash to me which works for the theme!  Next I cut a stitched circle out of the retired Plaid Tidings DSP.  I thought this red plaid kind of looked like a checkered tablecloth and gave me my pop of red.

  Next I stamped, colored and cut out various kitchen tools and a few pieces of food to arrange around my circle.  I love that cutting board; the wood texture is a really nice detail.  I added a bit of Cherry Cobbler baker's twine to make a loop on the handle.

  The sentiment I pulled from the Hats Off stamp set and trimmed it and added a candy dot for another hint of red. 

  Check out the Paper Players Design Team samples and then join along in the fun!

  2. What a creative card Amanda! Love the pops of red and the entire thing is darling! Well done once again!

  3. Amanda, I love this! How perfect is that red plaid circle and wood grain cutting board. It all looks great with the sliced mushrooms and great background. So glad to see this set in action. Hope you are enjoying your week.

  4. Absolutely adorable, Amanda! Like LeAnne, I love the granite "countertop". Thpse little sliced mushrooms are soooo cute! What a great card for showcasing this set!

  5. This set was one of the first on my shopping list but I haven't used it yet Amanda so I'm thrilled that you have it too and are creating such great things with it! I love the combination of elements and those great DSPs too - especially the red and white gingham. Fabulous!
