Here's my card using the Kitschy Kitchen stamps and Kitchen Icons dies:

We Mix Well

The rolling pin, jar, and sentiment are from the new Kitschy Kitchen stamps, and I used the Kitchen Icons dies for the rolling pin and jar. I added the "F" from the Mini Monograms set to make the jar look like a flour canister. I did want to point out that the bottom of the jar is solid, but I trimmed a piece of paper to cover the black area.

For the paper piecing and layered papers, I used digital papers from Sahlin Studio and Paislee Press (yep, it's a hybrid card).  I added a few hearts from the Paper Smooches Hearts dies. Here's a close-up:


We Mix Well Close-Up


I used the Xyron Adhesive Dots to attach the flour jar and paper layers. These dots are super strong! They reminded me of the old Super Glue commercial with the guy in the hard hat hanging from the i-beam (anyone remember that commercial??). Those die-cuts are staying put even through the mail--love that. :)

Thanks for stopping by! Next on the hop is my talented and sweet friend Kalyn.
