Recipe Card for a swap on Scraps of Color

This was a fun but a Challenging swap I had the hardest time finding embellishments for my recipe lay out. But it worked out in the end! I found some paper at Joann Craft store but they did not have enough of the card stock left so I took the one sheet that I had and copied it at Office was 50 cents a copy but I only need three sheets I copied it on to 110 weight card stock! I also could not find a chili pepper on any of my Cricut cartridges...I was going to use a free clip art image but that meant me having to cut each one out...My Cricut has made me lazy!....I found a shape close to it and only had to cut the bottom of the die cut rather than having to cut the whole image out! Added Inkssentials Glossy accents for a dimensional effect! The recipe is from the website http Here are a few pictures of some of my embellishments and the finished product.... Happy Crafting Everyone!

The glossy accent was not completely dry

Distressed and embossed with a Sizzix  embossing plate

Copic Markers

About a week ago I was able to get some free digi stamps at Cutting Cafe one of my favorite sites for digi stamps! I wanted to start getting some copic markers and this was a good reason to get them so that I do my own coloring!  Keep in mind this my first attempt and no where near as nice as some of the wonderful and talented ladies out there! I watched some of the youtube videos by suzannejdean she is very informative and I learned a lot. This Digi Stamp is from  which was used on one of the videos that I watched ...just fell in love with it!  Suzqucrafter21
