Apron of Love stamp set
Classic styled images ready to color, Apron of Love is a beauty to behold and an absolute dream to craft with.
I took a different approach with this project. Instead of stamping the apron onto patterned paper, I created my own with a new product; Painted Glass stamp set. In coloring this apron, I envisioned a beautiful fabric that was fashioned into an apron that any lady would typically wear when baking. The rose image from Painted Glass was stamped with Sahara Sand ink, in a light coat. I stamped off first and used the 2nd generation of ink. This was enough to allow me to color the roses with Stampin Blends, then fill in the “fabric” background after. The apron’s components were adhered with Mini Glue Dots, easy peasy! To give a “well used apron” look, I dabbed some Whisper White Craft Ink Refill onto a tissue and then dabbed it to the paper. Looks like powdered sugar or flour, typical for the kitchen… right?
The gift box was perhaps the most fun in creating this project. I started with plain Whisper White card stock cut to the measurements above. One piece is slightly smaller so that it will allow the top of the box to slide on and off more easy. The same rose image is stamped in varying strengths of Sahara Sand before being scored at 1 1/2″ from each outside edge. To get this flat piece of paper to become a box, simply snip the corners down to the score line, fold up and adhere with adhesive.
