Picnic Basket in the spotlight

I wanted to make a card that had our theme for this month but you could use it more than just for a picnic.  I thought of Life is a Picnic as a 'just because' card.
All of the stamps are from Crackerbox Palace.  I cut out the circle with Spellbinder and the white and red card stock were punched.

King of the Grill Pig

This was done with Crackerbox Palace stamps and we only have a couple of days left with this theme.  I can't wait to show you what we have for next week.
The hotdog in the bun that is in the corner and the 3 hotdogs on the grill are cut from the 2 hotdogs that are on the stick.  This one is pretty staright forward, stamp, color, cut and glue.  The scalloped square is Spellbinders and the coloring was done with Copic Markers.

Do you like pickles with your hamburger?

I used Crackerbox Palace stamps and Copic markers to color.  The hamburger is cut out and I used a pop dot behind it.  The jar was stamped and cut out of white cs and also acetate.  When I cut the acetate out, I cut out tabs or wings on the straight sides of the jar so I could wrap the acetate around the jar cut out of card stock. 
The tag and matting behind the hamburger is from Spellbinders, the green card stock is punched from Martha Stewart and the embossed background is from Tim Holtz Fades with a little brown ink rubbed over top of it.

BBQ Fun with Bull

Sorry for not getting a card up yesterday, the clock worked faster than I did. 
But here is one for today, only 4 more days left for this theme and then I will have some other super great cards that Currie came up with that I can't wait to share with you.
One of the things John likes most on the grill is a steak, so we had our artist draw us one.  I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it. It took me a few weeks to figure out how to use it, but then I found the bull.  We have sweet looking cows that I might use with it later.  I guess this is just my slightly twisted humor, I hope it will give a few chuckles.
What can I say about this other than it is pretty straight forward, stamps color with Copic markers and mounted.  I did put clear Gloss on the bulls feet and whites of his eyes. I used a deckle scissors for the edge on the tan cs and Spellbinder for the steak plate.

Great Food Great Friends


Well we have one more week of our picnic theme.
The tag is cut out from a Spellbinder.  The edge is punched from EK Success chain punch and ribbon is threaded through it.  The blue fence like punch is a Martha Stewart punch. I was showing a stamper the new Cuttlebug Quilling flowers at the store and cut off a piece so it wasn't so long and put it aside.  After the stamper left, I still had the cut off piece and curled it up and used it on this card as the white flower. 
 The stamps are Crackerbox Palace stamps and colored with Copic markers.

Dog-gone Special Hotdogs


Currie made another great card for anyone, but it does look like any guy would like it.  Guy cards are sometimes a challange but this one is a good one.
She stamped the images and colored them.  She added Glossy Accents used on the bun seeds.  Vintage Photo Distress ink for the aged look.  Ranger blue embossing powder for the saying. 
Mustard seed colored eyelets for the eyelets and jute string really adds interest.

Woo Hoo Steak

I think the card Currie made makes a great guy card, what guy doesn't like a good steak?
She stamped the dog's head and steak on white card stock and cut it out and then glued to card.  She colored with Copic markers and used Glossy Accent on the ant to make him show up better.  On the card the ant is not this dark, I am not sure why he turned out so dark here.  She used Tim Holtz Fragments to put over the words and the edge scrapper.

Brave Thing Picnic

When I opened this one up from Currie, I had to laugh.  What a great card for a guy too!
She stamped the bear, blanket, basket, cola and saying on white cardstock, colored it and cut them out.  The chain on the edge is a EK Success punch.  Currie punched it almost to the edge and colored it with silver Smooch.  She put Glossy Accents on the ants eyes and used Tim Holtz scrapper for the edges.

Ant Picnic

I was working the store and all I had were pieces I already cut out so I this card is pretty straight forward, stamped, colored and cut.  The saying is framed with one of our stamps and colored with Copic as well as all of the other images. The ant mounds are glues at the very bottom and the top of the mounds have small pop dots under them.   The tree is a bare tree I just dotted with the Copic markers.  I tore a scrap of cardstock and sponged Brillance ink over the edges to make the clouds.  The scalloped edge is cut from Spellbinders.

Picnic On A Table

I stamped the table on white card stock with red ink and just cut out the top of the table.  Then I stamped the table on the light brown card stock and glued the top of the table on the card.  I used EK Success punch for the edge of the table and added pearls.  Stamped the words in VersaFine Sepia ink, and sponged the edges. Stamped the food, colored it with Copic markers and cut them out, (the hotdog is cut from the stamp that has 2 hotdogs on a stick).  I punched the bottom of the light brown card stock with Martha Stewart punch.  I had the red bow laying on my desk so that went on as well as the blue and brown flower that has been on my desk for a while from something.

What We Eat

This one is for fun.  The top of the Cola can didn't come out very well, but it was stamped on the foil that a candy bar was wrapped in.  The hamburger was colored with Copic markers and the background frames were cut with Spellbinders.

Currie's Divine Cookbook

Boy, does Currie have a great cookbook to share! 
 I saved this for Friday, just in case you would like to try some of her ideas.
This cookbook sits on the counter at the store and everyone enjoys looking through it,
I hope you will too.
The book front and back covers are made from chipboard. 
She stamped the apron and cut the tie strings off and braded floss for the stings.  Also she wrapped floss around the neck loop.  Sprayed the apron with Paper Glide and shaped it to give it some shape. Copper wine with beads and a clothespin hang the apron.  Tim Holtz Fragments were used for the "Divine" stamp, and she used StazOn ink, Smooch are the dots after the words were dry.  The front of the sign was covered with Shimmerz.  There are little pearls at the apron stings and rhinestones and pearls around the edges.  The scalloped shape was cut out from Cricut and the blue card stock was distress from Tim Holtz tool.  All of the stamps she used are Crackerbox Palace Stamps.
The dividers with tabs are cut using Cricut cartridge Just Because Cards. 
Recipes were handwritten, cut from cookbooks, printed on the computer and some cut right off the box.




I sure hope you enjoyed this as much as I did.

Grill Baby Grill

Most men like to grill and doesn't this look like it would make a great guy card?
Currie used the Cricut cartridge Shape-Just Because for the white card stock.  She stamped colored and cut out the grill.  The flame came from the flame we have on our dragon, great idea! The the golden color over the words are the crayon stamp.

Delicious Watermellon

Doesn't watermellon sound good after all of these hot days?
Currie made this sweet card by stamping each watermellon on separate squares and coloring them with the Copic markers.  She matted each square and distress the green square of each one of them.  She added the ribbon on the bottom.  The green thread was knotted on each button and added to the ribbon.

The half watermellon is one of the stamps you can receive free.

Pig with Hotdogs

Currie used the stamp Paint Smear #2 with Distress ink-straw.  She stamped the saying over it and cut it out free hand, no straight edge and then distress the edge with paper scrapper and mat it.  Stamp 2 pigs, cut out one whole and just the nose on the other.  Use a pop dot behind the nose and put on the pig's nose.  Stamp hot dogs on a stick, color and cut out and glue to a tooth pick.  Glue pig on sign, then glue to card and mat. Punch holes on each side of pigs hand for string to help hold the hot dog stick.  Add brads in corners.  It was all colored with Copic markers.
This is the inside.
