What's Cookin'? (good lookin'...i couldn't resist!)

"Hey good lookin'!, Whatcha got cookin'? How about cookin' something up for me?"

I'm sorry...I couldn't resist! I used to love that song by Hank Williams Sr. when I was little and matter of fact, I still do. I also absolutely love to cook (my stepfather calls me Miss Betty..after Betty!) so getting to play with this new release from AiFactory was a definite treat for me! With the 'In the Kitchen' Digital Stamp set from AiFactory you get a total of 11 stamps...and each one of them are awesome & fun so go HERE to grab your own fabulous set! You can also buy the In the Kitchen Set already colored in two wonderful shades...just go HERE & HERE! I can also see this darling apron printed on some fun patterned paper & pieced together, especially with some retro or vintage inspired paper. You will be so glad you grabbed this set because I can see these cuties used on everything from recipe exchanges, to barbecue invitations & more! I also had a blast using theses stamps to make this card. It was fun to dress it up & add a little something special to the apron, as well as adding those fun dimensional glossy accents to the cuppies. I also added some black puff paint to the bottom of the apron for a more dimensional aspect. It doesn't show up too well, but it feels so cool! lol!

great, fun images. I just received an apron as a gift and it's so nice I don't want to cook in it! Your card made me think about aprons. I went to a craft show last week and there were two booths with aprons, maybe they are a new "in" thing.
anyway, it's a great card. thanks for playing with us at Cupcake Inspirations.
