SUMMER RECIPES — We all love getting new recipes to try out. Today our challenge is to make a card, or recipe card, or anything at all that will either hold a recipe or that we can write a recipe on AND there’s one more part that’s optional, but would be fun. SHARE your favorite summer recipe with us in your post — I think we’d ALL love to get some new recipes. And it’s summer — the recipes don’t need to be hard — they can be as simple as what you throw into your favorite tossed salad, or a picnic dish, or whatever. I’d love to get some new ideas — have fun with it!!!
Check out the great samples for the Stamp Simply Challenge today on the blogs of these designers:

Heres mycard for today, which does contain a recipe:
This card is 3.75″ x 9″ and fits a standard business sized envelope. This image from Summertime Journal Notes reminded me of a vintage outdoor/garden/picnic theme, so that’s the look I was trying to achieve here. The little Bon Apetite from the Recipe Set by JustRiteyou see sticking up on the top is actually on the inside of the card. My image was cut with pinking shears, corners matted with scraps, sewn on the machine, then mounted with foam mounting tape. All my background stamping is done with retired SU stamps.
On the left is a closeup of the top of the card where you can see the Bon Apetite which is peeking through from the card inside. And on the right is the button embellisment with the same Bon Apetite sentiment from the Recipe Set by JustRite, used on the small 1 3/16″ Wood Stamper — a size I am really having fun with!
On the left is the card inside. The striped ribbon is 1.5″ wide and from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. The handwritten recipe card on the right side is attached with removable tape so it can be easily removed by the recipient. Although this will not fit into a standard recipe box, it could be used as a bookmark in a cookbook.
The recipe I shared is for Potato Salad for a Group. You can make this recipe as small or as large as you need. I make this all the time and am always asked for the recipe when I bring it somewhere. Well, there really is no official recipe, it’s just what I do, and I’ll share it here with you:
Potato Salad for a Group
For each 5# of potatoes, use 1 dozen eggs.
- Boil potatoes until fork tender but firm
- Boil eggs
- Cut both into bit sized pieces into bowl
Add to your preference:
- Green Pepper
Mix in Dressing (recipe below)
Top with a good sprinkling of Paprika and Chives for garnish
- Scoop Miracle Whip Light into Bowl
- Stir in prepared Mustard (to taste), I can tell when the color is a soft buttery yellow it’s how I like it!
And these are the JustRite products that I used to make my fun Recipe embellishment andtab today. The set is called the Recipe Set and it fits onto the fun little 1 3/16″ Wood Stamper. I said it the other day, and I’ll say it again today, I am really enjoying this size stamper — fits well in so many places.
