More Cutlery

September 16th, 2009

Our church does a thing called Summer Sunday Nights on the Patio after the evening service for 9 consecutive weeks.  It’s a supper time for some sweet fellowship.  In the past it’s been just a few people doing all the work all Summer long.  I had an idea to to form teams to get more people involved in the ministry and spread the work among more people, so I volunteered to head up the program this year.  I recruited 8 team leaders (some of them worked in pairs) and together we recruited people to form teams of about 6 people for each week to do the shopping, cooking and serving.  A good time was had by all – including the workers – and that made my heart glad.  My team leaders were awesome and I wanted to send each of them a personal thank you note.  Well, you just know what stamp set I had to use!  Yep- Compliments to the Chef.  I’ve already posted a couple of the cards I made, but here are the rest of them.





This first one uses Ruby Red and Not Quite Navy cardstock along with a retired SU dp (can’t remember the name of it).  A very simple card with some NQN brads and some River Rock ribbon.  (River Rock is the one retired In Color that I miss the most I think.)  Image is stamped on Very Vanilla with NQN ink.  I had used this dp a lot when it was currrent, but i don’t think I had ever paired it with any red and I really like the look of this.



Next is a group of cards all featuring the current Cottage Walls dp from SU.  My original intention was to make at least 4 cards all the same, but since I really hate doing production stamping like that I ended up making them all different which was so much more fun.  I kept them really simple since I needed several  and had limited time.


I used a combination of Rich Razzleberry, Orchid Opulence, Pale Plum and Old Olive cardstock along with Very Vanilla.  All of the images are stamped in Rich Razzleberry.  I had fun playing with a variety of embellishments like KaiserCraft pearls, Taylor’s Tiny Twinkles, Prima flowers and of course ribbon and punches.

So have I convinced you yet that you really do need this set?  LOL!  I know I’ve justified my own purchase for sure!

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you are having a good week.  Curt just called to say he’s on his way home a day early from a business trip so I’m a happy happy girl!

    It’s Porcelain Prints DP… one of my all time favorites because it can go masculine or femanine. 🙂 Great cards. You’re making me want that set. Way to go on the fellowship/ supper teams!
