another Craft Secrets Vicki Challenge!!

It's a Crafty Secrets DT challenge hosted by our DT leader Vicki Chrisman, I just love doing Vicki's challenges, she gets me thinking, and using stuff I haven't used in a long time! Vicki's challenge was to use the Crafty Secrets Artsy Alphabet stamp set, I also used the Kitchen Classics set for the border and flowers in the corner. I decided to make a monogrammed recipe set and recipe holder to match. I covered the big wooden clothes pin with paper from the Earthy Paper Pad, I distressed the paper with the Ranger Distressed Antique Linen ink. I sewed linen thread through the buttons and attached them to the pin with glue dots. I used plain index cards and stamped the scalloped border and flowers on then with the Distress Antique Linen ink. I cut strips of paper from the Earthy Paper Pad and distressed them with the Antique Linen ink too. I stamped some of the S's with Distressed Fired Brick ink and the rest with SU! Bordering Blue ink. I punched the S's out with my 1 1/4" square punch and distressed them with the Antique Linen. I used my SU! scalloped square to punch the background for the letters in SU! Bordering Blue and Real Red cardstock. The card set is tied together with SU! ribbon.
Make sure you go and check out the other DT members blogs and she what they did for the challenge!
I hope y'all have a great Monday and don't work too hard!
