Baked With Love



Good Sunday morning all!  You can probably tell that I have been looking through some of my older folders! LOL  I found this lovely apron card that never had it's day on the blog so I thought I would share it.  I do believe that it is the last of the apron/kitchen cards that I made.  I started with a piece of milk card and covered it with a sticky adhesive sheet.  I cut all of the kitchen pieces from the Baked with Love die set out of milk card and randomly added them all over the card.  You can see the canister, mixing bowl, measuring spoons, utensils, muffin tin etc. behind the apron, then I sprinkled the remaining exposed adhesive with Diamond Snow.  I cut the apron out of dotty decorative paper from my stash and added pockets cut out of red with mounting foam.  I cut the rolling pin and wooden spoon out of milk card and attached them coming out of the pocket, then added the oven mitt hanging off the edge of the apron pocket.  I cut the sentiment twice out of ruby red card and glued them together then attached them to the centre of the apron.  Milk and red mats and layers were added to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x  8" in size.

The winners of this week's Comment Game are:

Lydia Jordan!!!
Jess Watson!!!
York's Butterfly!!!

Congratulations all!  Please email me at americansue1@gmail.com to confirm your address and claim your prize.  All for now, Sue x

Good morning Sue and all, stunning card, love it, I was thinking of making cupcakes today too.
Enjoyed Lisa's demos on Hichanda, the fairy globe is lovely, and the clouds and hit air balloon too. As ever enjoyed another tutorial on the pixie powders.
Congratulations to comment game winners.
Thank you to everyone fir their encouragement and checking Wednesday posts. I too checked so I have emailed Sue, it might be me, hope so. Tracey you remembered my surname correctly, thank you.
Maureen, you are a hoot, you had me laughing out loud. Sad about the Walnnut chocolate but I like Hazlenut too. Maybe you should write to Mr Cadbury, other chocolate is available. Hooe you had a great time at the Proms. That man is a real hero, shame his wife couldn't see that for the £ signs, and after he did it for her.
What a palaver Helen had to go through but at least Andrew has his appointment, hope they can do something quickly for him.
My manager is back from leave tomorrow, hey ho, let's see what she has to say about Wednesday .....
Have a great Sunday folks, hugs to all especially our poorly and missing friends.

Hi Sue. You got me good n proper there lol I've never seen you demonstrate a baking embossing folder before when did that slip past my beady eye - that's what was going through my mind as the picture was loading, then I read the post, bloomin eck Sue, that's downright clever - wow. What a brilliant idea, no wonder my feet are always cold, your ingenious ideas continuously blow my socks off !!! I love it what more can I say. Yet again we're being treated with Beverley's amazing samples, I can't tell you how much she was nagged at about showing her work to you and CE and I for one am delighted you found her ☺ I'm also delighted for our 3 winners of the comment gift enjoy playing ladies.
Me done, so love and hugs are the norm from me and hope your Sunday is full of happiness xxx

Nanny Joo Joo from sunny Scunny said...

Good morning Sue,

What a fabulous card. I too was open mouthed when I saw the first glimpse of the card, thinking, "wow, a coordinating embossing folder!"

Soooo clever. I love that idea. But dare I confess that I have bought theses die sets and still not had time to play with them. Although I must admit that it's because I have bought so many that I am still working my way through them!

My latest 'play' has been with the sets of hexagons and the weaving die. I think I'm turning into Julia Watts with my love for the weaving effect.

Thank you for sharing. Crafty hugs,

Nanny Joo Joo From sunny Scunny xx

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, what a fantastic card this is, I have that set but it has not been out of the folder for a little while so you have encouraged me to have another go at it, I love all these sorts of dies with all the little things that go with them.

Pam I reiterate all you have said, I hope it is you who was the Wednesday winner. Don't worry about tomorrow your manager will probably have made contingency plans to cover your work, she knew this was coming from your last hospital admissions. Your health comes first.

Congratulations to all the winners.

Had a lovely time at the workshop yesterday learnt lots more about different stamping techniques, and was lucky enough to win the top prize which is a really lovely 'Sweet Petunia' bag for putting my 'Misti' and all my stamps and inks in when I have to go to my craft group, I was so pleased about that.

Off to a craft open day today so will be seeing John Lockwood, looking forward to that.

Unfortunately because I have been out I missed the Hochanda shows but I will watch them on rewind over the next few days.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Donita Naylor said...

Dear Sue and Fabulous Followers,

You are so clever! And even while being clever, you also manage balance, flow and grace. My favorite detail is the muffin tin that makes heart-shaped muffins.
Congratulations to Lydia Jordan, Jess Watson and York's Butterfly.
Stephanie Cotterill, I hope you were able to chase down your socks.

Best to all.

love,

Good Morning Sue. Another wow card. I am not a baker anymore since my boys flew the nest and left home to start their own families, but I know many of my friends would love to receive a card like this. Well done Sue.
Ohhh I am so exited. It's my birthday tomorrow. But I got my pressie from my hubby on Thursday. I am now the proud owner of a Gemini Machine. I can't have it till tomorrow though and I can't wait to use it. I have wanted one for so long especially as my grand calibur was on the blink. Two broken handles and not embossing in places. I have had it a long time though and it served me well. Roll on morning is all I can say. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds

What a great card today, I love the extra bits as a background, isn't it fun. I do think it looks good with the apron cut out of fancy papers, the dpotty paper is bright and cheerful isn't it. Thank you for sharing such a delight with us.
Love Diane G xxx

Happy Sunday morning. What a pretty and fresh looking card you have for us today.

Hugs Helen xx

Izzy said...

Hi Sue,

Fabulous card, I too thought the background was a new embossing folder, until I looked at the close-ups...brilliant idea using the kitchen utensils to add some subtle detail behind the apron...I actually baked a cake yesterday so I'm feeling like a kitchen goddess!...lol

Donita - we call that a tart tin over here, the moulds are shallower than in a muffin tin - although the word "tart" has another meaning too which I won't go into on a family blog!...lol

Ann - what a wonderful surprise - does it make up for your holiday nightmare?...

Congratulations to the comment game winners - enjoy your prizes...

Where Does One Begin, Yet Once Again Another “Masterpiece” I Love How You Created
The Exceptional Background By Using Milk Card/Sticky Adhesive Sheet, Then Adding
The Remarkable Kitchen Utensils, From “The Baked With Love Cutting Dies” Necessities Collection
Also Some Of The Utensils From “The Apron Die Necessities Collection” Once You'd Removed The Top Layer
Of Your Sticky Adhesive Sheet, Then You Placed Your Utensils Randomly On Your Card,
Then You Added Diamond Snow To The Exposed Area’s.
I Must Admit At The First Glance It Does Look Like An Embossing Folder Extremely Impressive.
Then You Added Your Fabulous Apron Which You Used The Dotty Paper From Your Stash Also Ruby Red Card,
Then Added A Few More Utensils I Just Love The Oven Gloves (The Embossed Detail)
Products Used In Today’s Card:-
“Creative Expression Milk/Ruby Red Foundation Card”
“Creative Expression Sticky Adhesive Sheet”
“Creative Expression Mounting Foam”
“Creative Expression Cosmic Shimmer Specialists Dries Clear Acrylic Glue”
“Creative Expression Red Thin Satin Ribbon” (For Apron Ties)
“Creative Expression Cosmic Shimmer Diamond Snow”
“Dotty Paper” (From Our Wonderful Sue’s Own Stash)
Star’s In Today’s Card:-
“Sue Wilson’s Baked With Love Cutting Dies” (This Set Has 13 Dies Numerous Kitchen Utensils Also An Exceptional
Sentiment With A Beautiful Font) From The Necessities Collection
“Sue Wilson’s Apron Cutting Dies” (This Set Has 12 Cutting Dies Which Includes The Apron Also A Small Amount
Of Kitchen Utensils) From The Necessities Collection
Another Phenomenal Exceptional Card

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, love this card and so pleased you found it in your folders. I love the way you have created the background and the colours of the spotty apron remind me of a high-end company's style (CK) which is totally appropriate for you. All of the utensils are brilliant but I know I am not alone in having a favourite in the oven mitt.

Pam - I am sure Sue has good news for you. Maybe your manager's holiday has sweetened her up but you give it to her straight if she gives you any bother.
Maureen - I hope you enjoyed your proms, it sounds fabulous and Mr 'Daft' certainly isn't! What a man.

Congratulations to this week's comment game winners - Lydia, Jess & York's Butterfly. Enjoy playing with your gifts.

Maureen Killen said...

Hello Sue,
So clever with the white on white "extras" adhered to the background, with the bright pop of colour apron and patterned oven gloves. A really interesting card today.
Pam, your Manager can't say much about Wednesday. She's known this was on the cards and your Union Rep will keep her (and you) right! Try not to worry.
Pat L, sorry to read that Sarah's appointment has been put back and hope everything is o.k.
Barbara Mac, I meant to say yesterday that your comment the day before was spot on.
Congratulations to the comment winners, Lydia Jordon, Yorks Butterfly and Jess it's lovely to see your names there.
Laine and PP still no sign of you, I hope you are well.
Thank you ladies who commented on the Proms. It was a wonderful night which raised over £30,000 for a very worthy cause, and the beauty is that every £ raised goes towards helping local people. Brian - the man himself - has Parkinsons and is going to attempt to walk around Great Britain to try to roll this idea out so that any money raised by people will help the people in their own communities who need this aid (he hopes to increase the number of ambulances and volunteers). It's been calculated that it will take him about two and a half years to do the walk!! He is an incredible man. The vocalists - male and female - were wonderful, as were the Chorus and the orchestra.
love to all

Your red and white card today reminds me with fond memories of my Mother in her red and white kitchen, the first kitchen in my memory in the 1950's. I personally can not imagine having a red and white kitchen. It was a "hot" color for kitchens back then.

Eunice said...

Wow such a cool card!! My granddaughter would absolutely love it!

A gorgeous card today and a brilliant idea with the background. It's a very pretty apron. Maureen I am so pleased you enjoyed the Proms last night and what a huge sum to raise for such a brilliant cause. Congratulations to the comment winners especially Jess. Ann enjoy your Gemini. I love mine. So easy to use. Elaine it is worth saving up for the Gemini. You will find it very helpful. Hope everything goes well tomorrow Pam but if not remember what the Union Rep said. Echoing your comments.

Beautiful card Sue!!!!!!!!
The background is a big hit with everyone and I too thought it was embossed, how clever are you are you!

Pawprintx4 said...

Good Day Everyone,
Of course I got fooled with the fantastic pieced background acting like an embossing folder. Just brilliant. A very cheerful card which would go well with a home baked goodie....I noted all the baking going on in some of the ladie's homes. Yum. Shopping this afternoon will include a stop at the bakery in Publix.
Ann, enjoy your Gemini. I have loved mine. Remember to turn the plates often as they do warp quickly from the pressure but it cuts so many dies, one pass, that were persnickety (never Sue's) plus now I can use some of the larger dies and embossing folders.
Nanny Joo Joo, you and I are on the same page. I made a pile of weaved backgrounds yesterday. I am addicted to these new (for me) dies. I also ordered the Hexagons and am eagerly awaiting their arrival. I think they will be perfect frames for all my woven backgrounds.
Pam,hope you have won..I am thinking the timing is perfect.
Congrats to all our new lucky winners.
Everyone have a wonderful Sunday (or have had). Sounds like a lot of good things happening on the blog,

barbara macaskill said...

What a delightful card! Our 5 year old granddaughter and I were supposed to bake chocolate chip cookies on Thursday after school but she fell off the monkey bars and broke her arm. We rushed her to the hospital and she had to have surgery to put pins in to hold the two broken bones together. She has been such a brave little trooper through all of this. She didn’t even cry when they put the IV in. She squeezed my fingers really tightly and had to watch them put it in. She even thanked the nurse for helping her.
As they wheeled her into the operating room all the nurses kept saying how adorable she is and she told them that she takes after me! (That brought a few chuckles into the moment.)
We are hoping to make our cookies one handed this week. I told her that I will keep one hand in my pocket the whole time so we both have only one hand. She is looking forward to that! 🙂
Congratulations to this week’s Comment game winners. Enjoy your goodies!
My wish for all of you is that only good things happen this week and that you share a smile with someone who looks down or grumpy! It may be the only bright spot in their day! (((Hugs)))

Hello Sue,
I love today’s card and yes I was fooled too! Thought you had a new EF! I have these Dies and thoroughly enjoy using them! Love the red and white! Is my sight failing me or are the utensils in the background debossed in some of the photos ? It is such a cheery card! I love it.
Pam - hope it’s you!! Fingers crosssed - even though it makes typing difficult! Lol!
Barbara Macaskill - what a brave little grand daughter you have! Sending her get well hugs and I wish I could be a fly on the wall at this one handed baking session!! Are you going to clear up one handed too? I recommend aprons and possibly wellies !!!
Ann - enjoy your Gemini and I hope you have a lovely day tomorrow. I love mine too! As Stephanie K says - keep turning the Plates!
Margaret ( corgi owner’s) top tip is to store your plates underneath the machine when not in use!
Maureen - I know you had a great night last night and what an amazing amount of money was raised! What a kind man!
Stephanie - think I’ve got your socks dangling from a tree in my garden!! Lol.
Still no sign of Yvonne or Laine or Norah . Come back soon!
Love to all, Myra ( Friend of Maureen) !! Xxx

Hello Sue,

Such a delightful card today. It makes me want to get may baking utensils out and bake something scrumptious to eat. It's quite clever how you have created the background, it does look like it could have been an embossing folder. The red in the card just brings everything to life.

Congratulations to the Wednesday winners.

Thanks Stephanie for the lovely comment.

Have a wonderful day.

there is a real optical illusion in the pics. on some of them, it is easy to see that the die cuts are stuck onto the card, however, in some pics, it looks like you have cut them out and recessed them.

Hello Sue,
Such a clever way to use all the little implements, I too thought it was an embossing folder I must have missed. Love it. The spotted paper is perfect for the apron and that cute little oven mitt just finishes it off. You are so clever Sue.

Pam good luck with your manager tomorrow, don't stand any nonsense from her, and I believe congratulations are in order! Well done, hope you have claimed your card.
June, well done on winning the top prize.
Ann, just one more sleep!!
Izzy, you made me laugh with your tart comment.
Elaine, special hugs for Andrew.
Barbara Macaskill, your poor grandaughter, hope she isn't in too much pain, how lovely of you to show solidarity by baking one handed. I promise to smile to at least one person tomorrow!
Myra! Give Stephanie her socks back at once!
Congratulations to our three lucky ladies, Jess you can stop doing cartwheels now.
Laine and PP we miss you. Hope you are both alright.
Sorry I've been missing for a couple of days, I flew back home to good old Deutschland yesterday and am busy recharging my batteries after the mayhem of our gangs meet up. Missing them already.

Hi Sue and everyone

Yes, a real winner of a card today. Fresh and bright and a fantastic unusual use of dies for the background which works really well. I think the oven glove is really cute.

Congratulations to the three winners today, and hope Sue gave you good news Pam. x

Maureen, I’m glad that you could see bees too, even if you had to squint. No, I wasn’t on morphine yesterday, no hallucinations honestly. I can’t have been anyway as even Myra saw them too, and hers had pearl earrings in!
I’m glad that you had a great night at the Proms and that so much money was raised. He seems such a lovely kind man. I wish him well in his future endeavours, he’s a star. x

Love Helen xxx
