Supremely Awesome for PP642

Happy Sunday, friends!
Time for a fun new creative challenge over at The Paper Players
This week, LeAnne is hosting our Sketch Challenge.
Oh how I love good Sketch Challenge and LeAnne delivered with this one. SO many possibilities! My card initially started out as something completely different but when I was putting away some new stamp sets, a whole different project popped into my head. 

I sure hope you will get crafty and join us over at The Paper Players. We’d love to see what YOU create!

I decided to use the new Supremely Awesome stamp set from the Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog for this card. What can I say? I’m a pushover for a “punny” sentiment! This stamp set is adorable, because, it’s PIZZA! Cue the music…"When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that’s amore". By the way, you’re welcome for putting that song in your head today. :) 
Color Combo: 
It is so easy to create a card with JUST the images and sentiments, which I did with this one. I initially had a piece of Designer Series Paper in the background, but just didn’t like how it looked. So, I created my own but randomly stamping the little utensils on the Misty Moonlight layer. 

When I first stamped my little chef, the layer was a bit too wide for the sketch. You know what they say about never trusting a skinny chef…haha! So, I decided to trim down he layer a bit and add some interest by popping the pizza OFF the layer to make it stand out a bit. I stamped a second pizza image, colored it with Stampin’ Blends and then fussy-cut it out. It adds some cool dimension in-person. I also added some little dots to the cheese on the pizza using a Black Stampin’ Write Marker. It just added a little “seasoning" to the pizza and also played off the buttons on the chef’s coat. It’s tough to see in the photos, but I also brushed some Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to the pepperoni and the pizza tray for sparky detail.

Finally,, here is a peek inside the card. I stamped the checkerboard border in Memento ink and colored it with Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends. Then I stamped the fun sentiment and another set of utensils. I also popped in a little heart image (from the Crafting with You stamp set) because I just felt like it needed one. I’m going to give this one to my husband just to let him know I love him!
