Kitchen Shower

One of the most amazing things about stamping to me is the endless possibilities a stamp can have. I mean, you change the ink, you change the paper, and your stamp instantly has a distinctly different look. It still boggles my mind sometimes just how drastic it can be.

The Lockhart Vintage Apron is just one such stamp. You can change this up so quickly that it makes it so versatile. It lends itself to a variety of occasions, too - as you can tell by this little kitchen shower ensemble I've made. (All the papers are from My Mind's Eye, their Lush Collection.) By adding a few accents with Copics, I was able to make the apron take on a little extra dimension.

For the favor box, I chose another piece of coordinating paper from this collection and die cut a small gable box (an Accucut die). To finish it off, I stamped the Itty Bitty Chintz Heart onto an Ivory Inchie Square. (The Inchie Squares are great in a situation like this where your room to embellish is quite small, but your project really needs a little something!)

Have an amazing day! Be well.
