Creating my own designer paper was a tough one for me. I thought about what to do all week as I was making a birthday card for my son, a birthday card for my grandson and 3 Easter cards.
My hubby drives 6 Amish students and their teacher to school and back home every day. Occasionally he gets some home baked treats which he shares with me. I finally decided to make a thank you card for the mother of 4 of his riders. We learned that she does all of the cooking for her family on a wood cook stove. I just happened to have a stamp for that!! I also had stamps of 2 sizes of bowls and a crockery jar holding utensils.
Then I stamped the images to create a kitchen scene keeping in mind I was doing this for an Old Order Amish lady.
I image that her cook stove might look like this.
I tried to make the tea kettle looked like the blue and white spatter ware and the Dutch oven like hammered aluminum. I don't know if she would have cloths on her shelf of not.
I put some low key flowers in the corner just because it needed something!
Here is the open card showing the table with another large mixing bowl - maybe her bread bowl - on it. I'm not sure if she would have a tablecloth on it or not, but my stamp did.
The stove, shelf and table stamps are from Magnolia-licious. The two bowls and the utensil crock are from Peddler's Pack. The cardstock is SU Garden Green and Sahara Sand. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Hooked on Craft.
Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing time with me in this cozy kitchen.
