Impression Obsession CHA Design Team Blog Hop Day 3

My project today was made using the new Baker’s Apron and Picnic Plaid paired with the Border Duo 1, Spiral Flowers and tiny leaves cut from Leaves and Stems

I started by stamping the plaid image on white cardstock using Worn Lipstick.  Then I stamped the apron image once over top of the plaid using the same color ink and stamped a second on plain white cardstock. I cut both aprons out and paper pieced them to create the white ruffles on the straps and hem, the bodice and pocket.

I added the tiny roses and foliage leaves on the pocket and bodice to add another feminine element to the apron.  I layered it with the decorative eyelet border for the finishing touch.  I think this is a perfect image to use on a card for someone who loves cooking.  You can click on the photos to get a closer view.

  1. Oh, my… this image sure takes me back! I remember when my Mom would wear aprons similar to this. It reminded me of her card parties and the fancy card tablecloths and napkins! Great card and so much fun!

  2. I love this card….makes me think of my Mom who was a fantastic seamstress, among other talents…she had a Masters Degree, was an educator, wonderful cook, to mention a few. She made most of our clothes and would make aprons using the fabric remnants. Her aprons were beautiful. She even starched and ironed them. I only wish I had one as a keepsake. Thanks for taking me back to happy memories of my Mom.

  3. Wow, what memories this card brings to my mind. So darn adorable. Kittie, you amaze me with every card, total fascination. I actually thought it was a die cut and its a stamp, wow, beautiful.

  4. This is darling, Kittie. Aprons are making a come back. I like the type that slip over your head and tie at each side. I think our mothers and grandmothers had aprons for every occasion didn’t they? The little roses make this card just the sweetest, and stamping this image twice was a great tip – much easier to show a ruffle this way. And, I like your idea of giving this card to someone who likes to cook and be in the kitchen. Our grandson’s maternal grandmother wore a Christmas apron this year. This would be a lovely Thank You for Your Hospitality card to send her.
    Now… I have a silly question. I was looking at your resource list and wondered what you used the nesting circle punch for? You can send me a PM on SCS and let me know if you wouldn’t mind.

  5. This reminds me of the aprons my mom and grandma wore on holidays. I love how you stamped the background to use as your paper for the apron. This card simply delights me!

  6. Such fine detail work – as usual Kittie! Fantastic! I only looked at new stamps — I’ll have to go back and check out new dies!

  7. I like the Baker’s Apron card you’ve excellently created. It appears the apron is just floating above the layers of the card.

  8. Kittie – love, love, l–v-e the apron card!!!! The plaid paper is so perfect – reminds me of my Mom’s aprons that she used to wear when I was younger!!!
    Thanks for sharing!!

  9. This is a great card…love the paper piecing! The little rose and the border punch details add so much. I can see the apron stamped on a recipe card too. Good job! TFS

  10. I love that apron (remember wearing those) and the die cuts along the sides really makes for a great card.
    thanks for sharing

  11. Good Afternoon,Kittie. What a darling apron. Your aprons were worn to protect cloths, as women didn’t wash clothes everyday.(Monday was wash day) cost factor, and labor. also for beauty as well. then there was saving on the budget using leftover material to make them. very practical. I find myself wearing them. not only for cooking, but for crafting, and cleaning. it’s a amazing what you can put in the pockets as you work through the house. they have real character, as yours does here. love it. ……have a good week-end…hugs

  12. I really love this card. The pretty apron takes me back to my childhood. I love the tiny flowers and the bow that you added. The lacy border die cuts are the perfect touch to add to this card.

  13. Great card – reminds me of days when an apron was worn every day – my Grandmother always wore one ! Love the colors and the pretty edging !1

  14. Kittie, this is such a sweet sweet girly card. I just love it. I can see giving this to a grandchild…. Thank you for sharing your wonderful creativity

  15. This apron is just adorable, and that plaid stamp is right up there with gingham. Everyone loves a classic plaid! Love, love this card!

  16. What fabulous creativity. And, again you have revived another precious thought for me. My mother always made aprons for my grandmother and they ALWAYS had to have pockets, lol. Great work, Kittie. TFS.
