FTR6 Top Chef Quickfire

Catered Crop Top Chef Design Team


There's no judges table and no elimination – just delicious, culinary delights from our Top Chef Designers. They've cooked up a feast for you eyes (sorry, bad puns, I know). They've choosen from Crystal's ingredients and added a few spices of their own.

Here's our inspiration from Crystal and the recipe we're following for the FTR6 Challenge.

Libby Hickson, Libby's Stamping Addiction
Libby served it up with a food theme (yes, tea is food in my book), crazy patterned papers, pearls,
rickrack, black accents and ink, Glossy Accents, and a border punch.
Check out those pearls, and that sentiment! I'll take mine with a little sugar. 😉


Peggy Marsh, The Wired Angel
Peggy used Crystal's From-the-Kitchen theme, cupcakes, black ink/accents,
rickrack, and Prisma pencils. Are you getting hungry, yet?


Rachel Hope, Hope Stamps Eternal
Rachel cooked up some cupcakes, squares, mixed patterns, black accents,
rickrack, Glossy Effects on the cherry, and paper trims.
Be sure to visit Rachel to see the inside of the card – adorable!


FTR6 Jeanie Witmer

Jeanie Witmer, The Spotted Chick
Stirred up some crazy fun with patterns, black accents, cupcakes, black ink and distress ink,
Stickles, die cuts, Prisma pencils, and bunches of squares.
Aren't all those colors yummy?


Corinna McGregor, Stamping with a Java Junkie
Olive this card! You have to go see Corinna to see this in all it's glory.
Corinna went crazy with patterns, tried some black accents,
rocked the kitchen theme, and added black ink, liquid pearls, and squares.


Eat Cake Graphics Toad Sister

Linda McClain (that's me)
I stayed out of the kitchen (typical for me) but still followed Crystal's recipe with crazy patterns,
Prisma pencils, a Spica pen, black ink, rickrack, glossy accents, and squares.
