Bacon & Egg

Coffee To Go
There’s so much to be excited about this month, and I find myself particularly excited by all of the food themed goodies. I guess this says something about me… I love food! Today’s introduction of products is all about the food. We have several new food themed Little Bits dies that are all tied together with sentiments in the We Go Together stamp set. So you’ll be seeing lots of ‘we go together like…’ creations today which includes the one that I made with Bacon & Egg.
There’s just something I love about making foods into people so I’m also super excited about the new Spare Parts dies that include options for arms, legs, and faces to turn these foods into foodie people!
I started by cutting the Instant Photo Frame from Sugar Cube cardstock and the inner piece from Salt Water Taffy cardstock. Then I built my little foodie friends on top of the frame. The piece of bacon was cut from Sugar Cube cardstock and colored with Copic markers. The arms, legs, and faces were cut from Poppyseed cardstock.
I embossed the Toffee layer with the Swiss Hearts embossing folder, added a banner from the Skinny Mini Valentine borders, and used a Ladybug Heart Sprinkle in the yolk of the egg to finish it off. This card will be going to the guy who’s the bacon to my egg. Yes… he’s the bacon; the better half for sure!
Surprise, surprise! My next project also features another food item and one of my all-time favorite foods… PIZZA!
Isn’t this little pizza guy adorable!? He’s part of the set Pizza My Heart which also included a little donut man and coffee gal! I started with the new frame from Picture Perfect – Valentine and set out to create a scene for my pizza dude as if he were standing on a table (with a cute tablecloth, of course!).
The rest is simple with a few borders from Skinny Mini Valentine Borders and a sentiment stamped directly onto the white layer. After die cutting the piece of pizza with the coordinating die, I popped it up on foam tape and called it finished!
That’s it for my Day 1 sneak peeks! Are you feeling hungry? I know you’re going to want to check out the rest of our creative team blogs for more inspiration! And don’t forget to leave a comment for your chance to win the new We Go Together set and some bacon & eggs! See you back here tomorrow for Day 2 of peeks!
