Hot Stuff!

Hi everyone!  Happy Monday!

I have been quietly amassing quite a stash of Paper Smooches stamps (LOVE them), but haven't had time to get them inky!  I sat down for a bit of quiet time this weekend and created this quick, CAS card!

CAS is not a style I claim to be proficient at, however, I really do love the look of CAS and like to push myself to create cards using a different style than my normal of lots of layers and patterned paper.

I used the Fall To Layout 145 from the Clean & Simple Blog for my layout, and I also used a few different Paper Smooches sets.  I thought it would be fun to make one of the televisions from Boob Tubes into a convection oven!  The pie from FOLKal Points was the perfect addition to my improvised "oven" and the sentiment, "Hot Stuff" is from Vegtastic!

The "oven" was colored with Copic Markers, and I used Fine Linen for my card base, and for the three color blocked panels I used Smokey Shadow, Dark Chocolate and Kraft.  The only embellishments are Taylor's Tiny Twinkles on the buttons on my "oven" and a simple bow of Baker's Twine.

Thanks SO much for stopping by!!
