Food: A Drunken Stampers Challenge

Bring together two of life's greatest activities with this week's Drunken Stampers Challenge: Not only will you get to craft away, but it's all about the food this week! Woohoo!

Don't limit yourself to the obvious (and lately popular cupcakes), think fruits and vegetables and holiday treats like pumpkin pie!

Consider spatulas or appliances or even a handful of gorgeous recipe cards!

The creation you see here today is a folder sent to my sister with a recipe and special packet of spices -- the recipe is for a German soup that's been a favorite in my family for years.

I'm not ready to share the recipe yet, nor the neat tabbed cards or pockets from the inside: But that second part is only because I forgot to take photos of those elements. That's been happening a lot lately.

Fortunately I've got these photos of the outside: The front and back. Each side has a background of Die Cuts With a View designer card stock with glitter.

The "recipes" and "from my kitchen" framed phrases, along with the supremely cool vintage-look pot, are provided by the Cricut From My Kitchen cartridge (if you own a Cricut, but not that cartridge ... you're missing out on some seriously great stuff).

Anyhow, take a look at your craft space and decide what sort of edible delight would most benefit from a bit of crafty immortalizing!

Then, craft a beautiful piece, link it up at the Mr. Linky before midnight October 22 and wait for accolades from impressed viewers!


  1. Such a great idea, would love to know the soup recipe too! ;)

  2. Let's see, I am to think about food! Just returned from Mexican and Margaritas!!! So loving your soup!!

  3. What a cool idea, CB! This would be a great little present for my office mates-- ooh, I love it! I just checked half-dozen gifts off my holiday list.

    This really is the very definition of fabulous, not to mention clever, darling, and stinking smart! That stock pot die cut is rad! I love the cool, retro vibe.
