Recipe card and companion set

I'm really excited about the four new stamps sets that were released yesterday by Whipper Snapper Designs and illustrated by Anna Wight. Today I want to show you two more of the new sets in this new release. Keeping with the gardening, preserving and cooking theme are the recipe card stamp and the companion set to use with it:

Recipe Card <----- Click to take you to the site

Recipe Card Companions Set <------ Click to take you to the stamps

These two sets combined will make your recipes not only attractive but just think of the beautifully creative gifts you can make and give! Once I made the recipe card I realized how fun it would be using the companion set to the recipe card to create a card envelope to contain and present the recipe. I made a simple criss cross card (click HERE to view a simple criss cross card tutorial.)

See how your recipe card slides into the envelope? You could present several cards of different recipes in the same envelope. Or have you made a dish that your friends and family have been begging for your secret recipe? What a great way to present the culinary treasure to them! *smiles*

Because I make a variety of jams and preserves each summer I decided to use the specific fruit at the top of the card to make easy identification of the jam recipe.
I'm over the moon about Anna Wight illustrations for these sets!

For the tab at the top of the cards I used a Stampin' Up file tab punch. This made a great category identifier (as shown in here with DESSERTS) to keep your recipe card box orderly. The Companion set contains all categories as well as a variety of images.
Now just imagine how many times you are going to use these two sets! For myself, I'm just thankful you can't wear out rubber because I know I'll be making set after set of recipe cards. Some great gift giving ideas might be:

  • Bridal Shower gift

  • Children leaving the nest and needing Mom's good cooking help

  • Hostess gifts

  • Organizing your canning and preserving recipes in a special file (I KNOW I'm going to be doing this!)

  • Adding a cute recipe card to a homebaked bread or dessert or casserole.

    You get the idea!

Tomorrow I'll present another of the new WHIPPER SNAPPER DESIGNS April release set.



  1. Cute set. I totally love the recipe cards you made. Mine are all miss matched and bent. This would be a great thing to do and make new cards for myself.
    Also I agree it is an excellent gift idea. Got some showers and weddings coming up.

  2. These are darling and a great gift idea. Beautiful work.

  3. Hi,

    This is newly update set features design refinements that make it the perfect gift for cooks. It is a nice collection of toppers, with some for the guys too. This is very classic and excellent card of the world. I love this top rated recipe card.


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment. I truly appreciate them.
