TESC79 Compliments to the Chef

August 21st, 2009

It’s Friday and you know what that means…time for a sketch challenge from Taylor…the TESC79.  I barely got this one done.  I just completely ran myself out of time last night and then when I went in my stamp room with less than 45 minutes to spare (I rarely spend less than 45 minutes on a card) I am not kidding you when I say that I only had a 5 square inch space on my stamp table to work in.  I’ve been dying to ink up Compliments to the Chef from Stampin’ Up!  It’s just one of those sets that called out my name as soon as I opened the catty.   So I was excited when I saw that it would fit well with the sketch for today.


Thank heavens for my supply of TE Key Ingredients kits – such a lifesaver when I’m short on time.  I grabbed the Early Bird KI because the colors always remind me of a vintage kitchen.  All the cardstock, dp and ribbon are from the KI.  I added some green KaiserCraft rhinestones and some pearl brads I’ve been hoarding forever!  I rarely ever tie bows on my cards, but I decided to use a bow here in place of the circle element.  The ink I used is SU! Bermuda Bay.

Now let’s see what the rest of the Sketch Crew has cooked up:

  • Monika Davis
  • Stephanie Hargis
  • Vicki Chrisman
  • Taylor Van Bruggen
  • Lori McAree is this week’s Featured Sampler
  • ETA: I see my sweet friend Lori Craig stepped in to help us out too!
  • As you can see we are a little short-handed this week as several of the Crew had things prevent them from playing, so I hope you’ll take the challenge and join us!  We’d love to see your take on this week’s sketch. Just head over to Taylor’s blog for all the deets!  Thanks for stopping by.

      This is so cute. I haven’t even noticed that set in the catty. Now I’ll have to look! Love the papers you’ve used and those purdy, purdy pearls. Have a super weekend! Hugs!

      Hi , Jami! It does look rather retro… I thought this was the Crafty Secrets Kitchen Classics set at first. I’ll have to check it out again in the catalog. Cute card! I like the colors and the sketch.
