Simon Says Stamp and Show - Challenge - No Rules

One of the designers Suzz did a family gathering of wooden spoons to make the place settings so I was inspired to do wooden spoons of my own. I e-mailed for permission to use them  in the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge and Hel's Sunday Stamper. I had great fun in making them.
I started by giving a  covering coat of distress stains in blue red green and yellow. When this was dry I gave another coat of  distress stain in picket fence to mute the colours.. Then I stamped the handles and edges of the spoons  using Tim Holtz's stamps. I made them look grungy by using vintage photo distress ink.

I got the images I placed in the spoons off the internet......

Then I embellished them ......

 with ribbons and lace....

flowers and some Tim Holtz Idea-olgy.


  1. Carol, these are great! They really made me smile. I love the images that you used too xx

  2. Hi Carol, what a fantastic idea, love the idea of novelty spoons! The colours are brilliant and those images you got are wonderful too. Love them. Crafty hugs, Anne x

  3. Very clever, love them! Thanks for joining in with the Sunday Stamper x

  4. Your choice of muted colours for the spoons is really good - makes the m look 'vintage'. I like the images you ha ve used on the bowls of the spoons. I can imagine a meal where you have used these spoons as place markers and those people have all come for dinner. Would be an interesting evening to listen to them talking!

  5. Nice job! You did Suzz proud! :) Your spoons look really great! Thanks for sharing them with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy

  6. Beautiful! Love the images you used on yours! Very fun! Glad you decided to play along with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show and thanks for the link back. :)
