AUGUST KIT IS HERE!

Find Inspiration in Your Kitchen!

'Tis the season for lots of chicken soup! I was recently making some - and as I looked at my dishes, a lightbulb went off and I found the perfect color combo for a card! Here’s an idea using our fun new Alphabet Soup stamp set.

I began by stamping the Alphabet Soup Bold Prints background in black ink on a white card. (One of my faves!) Next I stamped the bowl and plate once on white and again on turquoise cardstock. I painted the bowl I had stamped on white paper with some of the new Liquid Watercolors - in Dandelion and ArtPrint Brown. Once that was dry I cut it out and mounted it onto the turquoise plate.

To create a "placemat", I stamped the "x" and "o" repeatedly tone on tone with yellow ink and paper, and matted that panel in turquoise. I stamped the spoon on gray paper and hand-trimmed, mounting on the card with foam tape. I made a little "napkin" by stamping the "x" and "o" again in black on a scrap of paper, which I softly watercolored with Indigo. I tied a bit of ribbon around the napkin, and finished the card with some "soup" made of Sunshine sequins.

Try finding color inspiration around your house, and have fun with it!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Tracey – So glad you love this set! We actually release all of our new collections to our valued retailers first in order to give them the first opportunity to sell to customers. We later add the products to our own online shop. So that is why you were able to find it over at Ellen Hutson first. :) Happy stamping!

I LOVE you card, so adorable!! I have this set, I saw it thru a blog hop a few weeks ago and they bought it thru Ellen H website, I searched the Hero Arts webite over and over and couldn’t find it, I thought it must be a old stamp set but I was so I love with it I went to Ellen’s and bought it there a couple weeks ago. I was shocked to see it in the new release, so weird how she had it first right???

Oh my goodness Sally this is too cute. How clever of you to think to do this! I am impressed and surprised I didn’t think of it myself with all of the chicken soup I have made and ate in the past 3 weeks! LOL It certainly IS the “season” that is for sure.
