Year Four & Pancake Burgers!
I’ve committed stamp sacrilege and cut up my stamps again. The long ‘happy…’ sentiment is so useful if you can use it either way. If you cut with a good sharp pair of scissors, it’s easy to push back together if you want it like how it’s set out.
I did some masking. A little technique tip for you- if you’re wanting to make this kind of look- post-it notes are your friend. You’ll need to stamp the image onto one of them, trim it out really carefully & to create this card, I started at the top, stamped one hippo, then covered it with the hippo post-it ‘mask’ then stamped below. I kept moving the mask onto the just stamped image and made my way down the card.
You probably can’t see very well, but the hippos are actually slightly 3D-
To do this, I discovered a neat trick a while back whilst waiting for the Glossy Accents to dry. As you’re putting a liquid onto cardstock, it does soak in and make the card slightly pliable. I simply rub on the back of my images- you can see where the Glossy Accents is starting to soak in, By gently rubbing in a circular fashion, you can ‘push’ the image out slightly from behind & give you card an even more dimensional look!
This card was for Make The Day Special & you were lucky if you got this set as it went so quick- however they’ve loads of new Lawn Fawn sets if you’re very very quick!
I’m popping this into the Lawnscaping Challenge which this week is ‘Bling it; sparkle and shine’
You can see I’ve ‘shinied’ my hippos up!
‘Twas Pancake day. We had the usual and I also tried a choc-come-scotch-pancake version from the Sainsbury’s website. They were really tasty.
I’d tried to caramelise some bananas and we had some raspberries to add fruit which kinda made me feel better! 😉. My hubby isn’t a dessert sort of guy but tried one, cutting it in half, and adding raspberries and icecream in the middle and then sandwiching it together. “Look,” he told the kids, “a pancake burger”!
So the ‘pancake burger’ was born.
Of course all the kids wanted to try one. Surprisingly good!
I didn’t take a piccy but there was plenty of better left. Rather than throw it out, I saved it and thought I’d use it up this morning. I didn’t think it would still make decent pancakes as there was plenty of baking powder in and I presumed it would have lost it’s rising ability.
See you when I’ve learned how to make a flat white. That is a story for the next time!
