Tonight's first sweet treat comes by way of the BF-05 Bliss stamp set giveaway... and the winner is Pat S who said her favorite b-fly technique is "using butterflies as an overlap on tri-fold cards. The type where each side of the front section is half of the front."
If you read through all the comments, you'll find there were a lot of great ideas -- some I've tried, and some that are now on my "must try" list. Also, I ought to mention that "wendyp" did add a comment, but when I approved it for publication, only her name posted. No idea why? Wendy's favorite b-fly technique is "to use them to create a cut-out. I stamp the back of the cardstock with the butterfly and then use an exacto knife to cut out the insides of the wings, leaving the veining. The result is a delicate butterfly diecut."
The second sweet treat I want to share this evening is smART Cookie, Peggy Lamb's Tasty Recipe Criss-Cross Card. I think it must be the color scheme, but this card reminds me of an Italian restaurant...
What's Cookin'? stamp set, cardstock - red, black, & white, red/white gingham print, black ink, clear embossing powder, Twinkling H2Os, and tab & scallop punches (Stampin' Up). The chef is stamped, embossed, cut out, and adhered to card using pop dots. A Stamp-a-ma-jig ws used for placing stamped words, and rolling pin image. Instructions on how to make a criss-cross card can be found HERE.
One of the neet-o things about Peggy's card is that the insert has a recipe card on each side. That means you could either include two tasty recipes or list the recipe ingredients on one side, and the "how to" on the other.
And guess what else?!? It wasn't until I was actually scanning the card that I discovered the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip recipe that Peggy had included on the back panel... It's a bit different than the one I use, so of course I'm going to have to give it a try:
Peggy's Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
1-1/4 cups butter (2-1/2 sticks)
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 cups quick oats
1-1/2 cups chocolate chips
Bake at 375' for 8-10 min.
Thanks for dropping by,
