Now onto my project.
I choose 'Summer Grilling DIGI781' to create with.

I started with a stenciled background using Memory Box Star Dust Stencil.
I taped my card stock down with painters tape,
then using Dreamweaver White embossing paste and
Pallete Knife, I applied the paste.
I quickly removed the tape,
then sprinkled the still wet stars with
Enlightened Blue glitter.

I set the panel aside to dry,
printed my digital apron on a red gingham check paper
then fussy cut it out.
I did the same with the oven mitt,
but this time using the pre-colored image provided.

I printed the apron a second time on a blue card stock,
cutting out only the pockets.
Both were popped up for a 3D look.

Once the panel was dry,
I adhered it to my blue card stock base
by using 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape.

I then had a tiny ant die and small utensil dies
that I used on the apron.
The utensils were cut from a white card stock,
then coated with Versamark and Silver Detail embossing powder

To finish, I printed the sentiment,
then added a tiny bow to the apron and a button to the oven glove.

Thank you for visiting with me today!
Make sure and do the hop, as all 6 stamp sets
are up for grabs and one lucky winner can have them all...
will it be YOU?

Next on our blog hop is Chris.
