Coloring the kitchen this week begins with a challenge from The Color Throwdown. It’s been quite some time since I’ve participated in any challenges, but I needed a little push in a different direction today. This week’s challenge is a pastel trio of colors: pink, aqua and lavendar. Since I’ve been working with a lot of Halloween and Christmas colors recently, this color combination is a welcome change!
In addition, the little ghostly cookies inspire me to bake, which in turn brings the What’s Cookin’ Bundle to mind. With its bowl, whisk, spatula and wooden spoon, the creative baking fun in the kitchen can begin! Whether your adventure involves cooking or baking, it’s a wonderful set for decorating cards, recipes, or scrapbook pages.
Coloring The Kitchen Card
First of all, I have to ask you – are all the baking utensils in your kitchen color-coordinated? Mine definitely are NOT. In fact, they’re just about every color in the rainbow! So for this challenge I chose an aqua whisk, a purple spatula and a pink bowl, along with a pink checkered tablecloth and a wooden spoon. I think that my three year old grandson, who loves to bake with me, will be happy with this color combination!
Card Base: Blushing Bride cardstock, 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″
Score the cardstock at 4-1/4″ and fold to create the card base.
Coloring the Kitchen Card Layers:
Cut Basic White cardstock to 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″. Then add a small rectangle, about 3″ x 4″, of Coastal Cabana cardstock behind the lower right corner before adhering it to the card base.
Continue to build the baking scene. Firstly, cut a triangle of pretty paper for the tablecloth. This pink checkered pattern is from the retired 2020 Sale-a-Bration Pleased as Punch DSP. Of course, if you’re using a different color scheme, match your kitchen utensils with the tablecloth of your choice! Secondly, stamp the spatula from What’s Cookin’ in Highland Heather ink and the bowl in Blushing Bride ink on Basic White cardstock and die cut them with the Cookin’ Dies.
To complete the card, stamp the Happiness is Homemade sentiment in Coastal Cabana in the lower right corner. If desired, add a couple of sequins, such as these Highland Heather flowers from the retired Gingham Gala Sequins pack.
Are you joining a challenge this week? I had fun with the Color Throwdown #665 color palette, and I’m looking forward to joining more challenges in the future. In addition, there will be more creations with the What’s Cookin’ Bundle, such as in this Repurposing Christmas Cards post. What will you be making next? Leave a comment and let us know!
