To A Souper Friend!

When I did the Crazy 4 Cocoa Challenge last week, I was sure I would run out of ideas quickly. My stamp supply of Cocoa stamps,from Sweet'nSassy, is slim. This week, the theme is "In The Kitchen". How lucky was I, that one of my two sets had veggies in it! I also found a really cool sketch over at Card Positioning Systems, that I thought would work well.

I stared with Sweet Mango and Soft Sand Pure Luxury card stock. I embossed the panel of Soft Sand with the diagonal stripe EF. My pattern papers are from my scrap bin. I found this neat 3D soup pot sticker and bow tie noodles to add to the sketch. I think they are cute, how about you? When it came to my Cocoa image, I used one from my set called Autumn Lovin Cocoa. I did alter him a bit to fit my needs. The complete stamp, has leaves sticking out from underneath. Snip, snip and gone. Since my soup pot has glittery steam, I add some to the tips of the corn and squash. Cocoa's ears, nose, and tail are coated in Glossy accents. I read a tip that I used to keep his tail from ripping after fussy cutting. Just add a coat of Glossy Accents to strengthen! Worked great! My sentiment is a stamp from Stamps n' More.

Glad I was able to get back with entries for these challenges.

As Patti Sue said, this is Soup-er cute! I just LOVE Glossy Accents too, and find myself using it all the time! I love your tip to use it before fussy cutting! Your card is so cute and I love how you colored Cocoa and everything else! Thanks for playing with the Cocoa Crazies again this week, and who knows?
