Baking Tray of Love

Happy Sunday, my friends! =) I have a card made using a stamp from Whiff of Joy Stamps' Love Bug collection to share with you today.


This card is also made for the Anything But Square challenge over at the Whiff of Joy Challenge Blog.


I used the beautiful Baking Tray of Love for my card. Mmmm.... I think I can use some cookies now... =) I stamped and colored her on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock. The image is then cut and embossed with a Labels Nine die using the out of frame technique. I then masked her and inked the paper with tattered rose. PTI's Background Basics: Text Style is then stamped over the piece using the same ink when the paper was still in the die.


The sentiment piece is made the same way but using a Labels 14 die. The sentiment is from WOJ's General Sayings II set and the Butterflies border die is also from WOJ. I used one of the cut out butterflies as an embellishment. The patterned paper is from the Sweetness collection by Pink Paislee.

I also posted over at the poppystamps blog here and here. Hope you can hope over and take a look. =)

That's all for now. Have a happy Sunday! =)

Hey Alice, just before church, I wanted to look if you had another beautiful card up, and yes!
I love the image! Good coloring! I love seambinding....A friend from Texas had some for me, promissed to send it, but the last few months she's in and out of the hospital because of kidney problems, poor girl....so she has not been able to send it yet...I'll have to be patient. ;)
Did you color the seambinding yourself? It looks so beautifully vintage!
