Love You Much Cookie Shop

I jave seen this storefront idea many times and think it makes such a cute card. I ended up C.A.S.E.-ing (Copy and Share Everything) this cookie shop idea from a fellow stamper's blog...I'm so sorry, but I can't remember which one.


I'll start from the top...The awning is from the Candy Lane DSP and scalloped with the Scalloped Edge Punch. I put a few dimentionals under the lower edge to make it stick out a little, like a real awning.


The window was stamped with the "L" from Love in the Love You Much stamp set and colored with a Basic Gray Watercolor Crayon to look like cookie sheets. The cookies themselves, were stamped and punched out using the Love You Much stamp and Heart to Heart punch. I finished them off with (from left to right) Clear Micro Beads, Dazzling Diamonds, and Pink Beads from the Bead Duos....all were adhered using Crystal Effects. The window sill is 2 pieces of Close to Cocoa CS sponged with Chocolate Chip ink and dimentionalized. Here is a close-up....

The bushes are layered Scalloped Circles punched using Kiwi Kiss, Certainly Celery, Garden Green, and Old Olive CS. The Pink Piroqutte flowers were punched using the Trio Flower Punch and for the centers I dotted Crystal Effects and sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds over.

One of my favorite parts is the Topiary. It is made all from punches! I made the top by using upside-down hearts from the Heart to Heart Punch. From top to bottom: Garden Green, Certainly Celery, and Old Olive. All were sponged with Garden Green ink. The trunk is a Word Window Punch and the pot is a closed Tab Punch with the top cut off to look more flat. Both were sponged with Chocolate Chip ink.

A very cute and pretty card!!!!
Your directions are easy to read and follow.
When I look at your cards and read your directions I want to make the cards right away and forget any work I need to do.
Thanks for sharing!!!! Carolyn
