And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

From Cocoa's Kitchen


Hello friends!  He's back…the delightful and adorable mouse, Cocoa, has snuck into the kitchen!  Welcome to DAY 4 of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps February Feature Blog Hops!
Today's feature is:
Today the DT is thrilled to share the new From Cocoa's Kitchen with you.  This adorable 4"x4" stamp set features 2 kitchen images and 6 coordinating sentiments.
  • The chef hat image measures approximately 2.25" x 1.75"
  • Illustrated by Korin Sutherland
  • Stamp set is $11


Here is my card for From Cocoa's Kitchen
I had tons of fun with this one!
Creative Nugget:  Everyone needs an apron while baking in the kitchen…right?  I started by creating a template for Cocoa's apron and a liner by tracing Spellbinders Circle and Oval Nesties for the arms and neck openings onto scratch pieces of card stock. These were traced onto a Real Red card base and on a piece of Authentique designer paper. The pocket is a Spellbinders Circle Nestie with the top cut off.  A Doily Border Die was trimmed to fit around the neck, the top of the pocket, and the bottom of the apron.  A few Heart Dies decorate the pocket.  Ribbon was added to create the apron ties before everything was stitched together.  The Cocoa image was colored with Copic Markers and fussy cut.
The Cocoa image was then attached to a tab which slips into the pocket so that Cocoa can peek out…keeping an eye on his kitchen!
