A Chef's Announcement

This weeks Featured Stamper on Split Coast was my good stamping friend and Fellow Doubledog Dare Challenge Team member Joanne Travis (sleepyinseattle). I CASED her fun chef card

I missed making this fun stand up card when it was a new technique challenge on Split Coast and I just love Chef (Voila by Stamping Up) so this was the card for me! Anne (Itsapassion) - another good stamping buddy who is also on the DDC team - is having a special birthday this week - so I made this for her (Happy B'Day dearest Anne! This is in the mail to you along with a couple of treats!)

The card base is a Bazzill coral color and the designer paper is Basic Grey Porcelin. The cupcake is by Lockhart Stamps and I colored it with Copics. It's popped up on foam dimensionals and I added the Basic Grey Chipboard numbers on top!

On the back of the card I added two more stampings and this is where I signed the card.
Here are the copics I used on the cupcake and Chef's skin. His outfit is paperpieced with Bitty Box Basics by Papertrey Ink.

Thanks for coming by today! Leave me a comment so I can come visit you!!
