Good morning and welcome to another edition of Cards and Creations by Lori McBride. My name is Lori McBride and I’m a Stampin Up Independent Demonstrator from Joshua,TX.
Today I’d like to share with you a card/creation that I designed and created using Stampin’ Up’s brand new What’s Cookin’ Bundle.
Before I jump into how this card creation was made, I’d like to share the backstory of the inspiration behind it.
One of my other passions is cooking. I love to cook, I love to cook for my family and for get togethers and gatherings. I love to entertain.
I was introduced to Ashley Stauffer – Pampered Chef Consultant through a mutual friend who was hosting a party for Ashley online. It was A LOT of fun and Ashley is a REALLY good Consultant who kept us entertained through the course of the party. I won a couple of prizes through the party which I received just a couple of days after the party ended. Along with a super sweet handwritten card.
As I held the little prizes and the card in my hand, the wheels in my head began turning. It sat on my counter and I found myself looking at it, picking it up and saying, “Hmmm.”
And then we as Demonstrators were able to view the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog and I saw the What’s Cookin’ Bundle and my mind went, “DING!” I had to see if what I had in my mind was going to work out. Even before we could do pre-order, I contacted Ashley to let her know that Stampin’ Up was about drop something BIG and that I had her on my mind.
Within SECONDS I had the first part of the project complete even without having the Bundle in my hands as it wasn’t available during pre-order. It was top of my list before anything else when I was able to place my first Annual Catalog order.

Standard A2 Cardbase (Pool Party) – 4 1/4″x5 1/2″
DSP (In Good Taste) 2″x4″
Inside Cardbase (Basic White) – 4″x5 1/4″
Pocket (Pool Party) 4 1/4″x 3 1/4″ scored at 1/4″ on three sides (tiny squares removed with snips)
To save time, I created my Cardbase, pocket and did all of my die cutting ahead of time. Once all of my pieces are die cut and created then I adhered the pocket to the inside of the cardbase using Tear and Tape. I stamped the sentiments on the Contoured labels in Momento Black Ink. I adhered the DSP down with Stampin Seal Adhesive and stamped both the chef’s hats and the fruits and vegetables to the card front in Momento Black Ink.
I stamped the spoon image in Crumb Cake Ink before I die cut the image.
I adhered the “What’s Cookin'” sentiment to the DSP using Stampin’ Seal Adhesive and added Stampin Dimensionals to the back of the cutting board and adhered it to the front of the DSP and sentiment. I offset the utensils and glued them together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and secured them to the front of the cutting board using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I tied a bow using the Linen Thread and secured it to the utensils using a Mini Glue Dot.
Next I opened the card and adhered the Inside Cardbase to the left side of the card. I adhered the “spoonful of love” sentiment to the pocket using Stampin’ Seal Adhesive. I added a Stampin’ Dimensional to the top of the spoon and a Stampin’ Mini Dimensional to the bottom of the spoon, slanted it diagonally across the sentiment to secure.
About the inside Cardbase; when I received Ashley’s care package there was an adorable handwritten note card in it. I left this side blank but a “thank you” sentiment from one of our other Stamp Sets can be used and still leaves ample space for Ashley to write her kind words.
I then closed the card/creation and using a hole punch, punched a hole in the opening end of the card, a slid a fair amount of Pool Party Sheer Ribbon through the opening. I slid a Pampered Chef Enrichable and a stone scrapper into the pocket, ran the Pool Party Sheer Ribbon through the opening and secured it by creating a bow and trimming off the extra.
Ashley absolutely fell in love with this idea and does plan to begin implementing it into her Pampered Chef business. I hope that this will help her take her Pampered Chef business to a whole new level and that her Customers will love it just as much as she does.
Thank you so much for joining me today. I hope that you’ve enjoyed this very special project and will join me again soon for another edition. Until next time, Happy Stampin’ Everyone!!
