Sparkle Creations February Preview -- Chef Oliver

Hello and Welcome to the first day of previews for the Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps January release! Sparkle is releasing 2 new images at midnight EST this Saturday, February 12 .. Today we are previewing Chef Oliver (and a new sentiment)!


This sweet image reminded me of the brief time when I worked as a prep cook. At one time I had planned on going to culinary school to become a professional chef.. things didn't work out as I had realized my passion for cooking later in life and soon realized that restaurant hours wouldn't work well with a family.. Anyway, I remember we used to wear these not so flattering blue striped pants and white coats (and the white coats always got really dirty and stained). The sous chef always wore these bright colored pants and chef coats, so I colored Oliver to look like him.

It's hard to tell, but the strips of Melissa Frances patterned paper have chickens and eggs on them and a tiny print that says, "Farm Fresh Eggs". See that sweet sentiment, "whatcha got cookin'?"? It's an all new Sparkle Creations sentiment that is included when you buy Chef Oliver! All the while I was making this, all I had going through my head was the song.. Hey good lookin' , what you got cookin'?...

Be sure to visit the rest of the SCRS designers for more peeks of Chef Oliver. Sparkle will be giving away a Chef Oliver to one lucky person! For a chance to win, you need to comment on all of the designer's blogs (list below). Then head on over to the SCRS blog and comment on the Oliver post.

  4. So funny, I was just commenting on Sparkle's blog that I've got that same song going around in my head, too!

    Beautiful card, Stephanie. And I enjoyed hearing the story of how you once dreamed of being a chef. Do you still like to cook?

    It was so nice meeting you at CHA. I just wish we'd had more time to relax and not keep you up so late!

    Hugs,
