ISC - May Artistic Projects Part 1

Welcome to Innovative Stamp Creations May Artistic Projects!!!

What do you enjoy most about stamping? Simply creating cards or making handmade gifts for others? Stamping has truly evolved from the very basic to now digital (nope, ISC will never go digital!). With that said, this month,-well, all months- are always unique at ISC –right?!

The Achitects’ were challenged to use many of the oldie-goodie stamp sheets, such as Rustic Artsy Swirls, Flowers Watercolor Effect, & Passion Flower to create gifts you could give a friend in need or just because!

Be sure to visit all of the Creative Architect blogs starting today until Wednesday May 26!  There will be different projects each day on each of their blogs.

First, a simple way to transform plain recipe cards using Flowers Watercolor Effect sheet, which is on SALE! Do you love to bake? See my fav recipe below! Which one is yours?

Here is a great recipe you could put on your cards...

Videlia Onion Dip (hot)

2 cups mayo
2 cups chopped Videlia Onions
2 cups grated Swiss cheese

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Mix all ingredients together….place in oven safe dish (I used 9x 13).
Bake for 25 – 30 minutes or until it browns lightly and bubbles.
Serve with crackers, bits of bread, pita bread wedges, etc.

As you will see, I kept my recipe cards very simple so that they could actually be used easily.  However, YOU could make your recipe cards whatever size and design YOU would like.

Tip:  Fill out a recipe card and then place it in a small basket with the main ingredients needed, fill jelly jars with the dry ingredients and attach a recipe card....... the ideas are endless!

Wishing you a wonderful and delcious journey through the blog visits.

AND......having nothing to do with ISC, but a card leftover from yesterday's playtime to share......

I created this with a fab new stamp set that just arrived from Walzingmouse.  Waltzingmouse is the sponsor of a challenge at Paper Play this week, and the challenge was to make a wedding card.  I kept it CAS.

Such pretty recipe cards, and I love the beautiful wedding card, too! Have you considered joining those zany Punchkateers because I think you must have THE largest collection of punches. Remember how we use to tease Hootsie about her semi loads of stamps? I think you have semi loads of punches! Yup. I do. :-)

Charlene Merrick (LilLuvsStampin) said...

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention the Vidalia Onion Dip recipe. Sounds delish! Vidalia onions are our favorites of the onion family; we only wish they had a longer seasonal life.
