FTR21 Top Chef Quickfire

Use the talents you possess –
for the woods would be a very silent place if no birds sang except for the best.

Catered Crop Top Chef Design Team

It's that wonderful time of the week again when our Top Chefs and Guest Chef get to share their creations using our Catered Crop Follow-the-Recipe #21 (FTR21) recipe. Our inspiration and recipe is provided by the very talented Guest Chef Sarah Engels-Greer.

 

Playing with us at the Catered Crop "Follow-the-Recipe" linking party is a piece of cake! Here's how it works:
  1. Use any of the ingredients (themes, colors, techniques, shapes, etc.) in Sarah's recipe to make your project. You don't have to use all the ingredients or the same brands. Just pick a few ingredients and then add your own spices to cook up something uniquely yours.
  2. Add your project using the InLinz (froggy) button below and join the party.
  3. Be sure to list your recipe or tell us what ingredient you used from the sample recipe.
  4. Don't forget to link back to this post or include the "I Followed the Recipe" button on your blog (see the side bar to the right).

 

Your FTR21 recipe has so many delectable ingredients.

  • Colors – Vintage tones (sepias, gold, cream, muted greens)
  • Papers – Design Paper (K&Co), torn book page, doily, paper scraps
  • Stamps – flowers, leaves, sentiment
  • Color Mediums – Distress inks, Archival ink, Crackle, Viva Gold, cream paint
  • Embellishments – ribbon, lace, mini-tag, button, press-studs, thread
  • Techniques – stamped resist technique (on bird), stitching, Grunge Rose, sewing, distress
  • Tools – Die cuts (bird, cage, flower)

As always, the winning entry gets an "I Baked it Best" button to put on their blog, will be the inspiration for the next challenge and can be a guest Chef for our QuickFire.

 

There's something about Tammy Thompson's digital stamps that just pluck at my heart strings. They're simple, sweet and poignant. You can tell Tammy puts a little piece of her heart into every illustration.

One very lucky player randomly picked player will win a $12.00 GIFT CERTIFICATE at A DAY FOR DAISIES!

Star Power

Woo hoo, witchy woman. See how high she flies.

Miss Star Witch

 

According to my witch-watch, it's quarter-past time for another Halloweenie post. I seem to be under the spell of yet another witch.

Miss Star Witch

 

This little cutie is called Miss Star Witch. She's a digital stamp from the very talented Tammy Siemers Thompson at A Day for Daisies. I'm so crazy excited that A Day for Daisies is sponsoring our Catered Crop challenge. I absolutely adore her images.

 

Catered Crop Follow the Recipe

Yeah, I went kind of crazy with the star thing, right? I covered a chipboard star with this gorgeous paper using ModgePodge. After that dried I covered it with Crystal Effects and then sprinkled Diamond Dust glitter onto it. Lesson learned – if you put too much Crystal Effects on your star, your glitter will clump up and lose its sparkle. So, if you try something like this, just a little dab of Crystal Effects will do ya. 

I'm following Sarah's recipe for her beautiful card in our Catered Crop FTR21 party this week. I picked up her crackle medium (on the moon), ribbon, lace, mini-tag, studs (pearls), and thread. Here's the rest of my recipe.

  • Paper – My Mind's Eye Stella Rose, Bazzil and Neenah
  • Stamps – Miss Star Witch, Stampin' Up! Tiny Tags
  • Color Mediums – Memento ink, Copics, Stampin' Up! Pastels
  • Fibers – Jillibean Soup Baker's Twine, My Mind's Eye seam binding
  • Tools – Stampin' Up! Jewelry Tag Punch
  • Embellishments – Stampin' Up! Chipboard Star and Circle (retired)
  • Misc. – Diamond Dust glitter, Ranger Distress crackle paint, ModgePodge, Crystal Effects, Distress Stickles, and Stampin' Up! Dazzling Diamonds

Come join us at the party – it's hopping. You could be our next inspiration or the winner of a $12 gift certificate to A Day for Daisies.

See you later, my pretties!

And . . . one lucky, randomly picked player will win a fabulous prize from A Day for Daisies! There's something about Tammy Thompson's digital stamps that just pluck at my heart strings. They're simple, sweet and poignant. You can tell Tammy puts a little piece of her heart into every illustration. She says it better than I can, so here's what Tammy says about her shop.

A Day for Daisies is the title of the first painting I sold and along with it the best complement I ever received "It makes me happy”.  Since then I have enjoyed a happy career working as a freelance artist and book illustrator, and most recently my digital illustration shop. As a busy mother of four little ones there has been no shortage inspiration to fills the pages of my store.  There is nothing quite like my little ones bursting in the room with a crumpled fist of flowers picked just for me.  Never did a dandelion seem so beautiful! I hope my art will continue to encourage us all to surround ourselves with what we love, and love what we do.

One very lucky player will win a $12.00 GIFT CERTIFICATE at A DAY FOR DAISIES!
