Bloggers Challenge - Kitchen Sink Stamps Anniversary and more!

Happy Friday, I'm so glad you stopped by today. I've got a lot to share with you, so grab your coffee and stay awhile, as I've done quite a bit of multi tasking today. My posting is all about Fall, using the Bloggers Challenge theme Designer Paper, and also celebrates Kitchen Sink Stamps 2nd Anniversary!

If you've never tried Kitchen Sink Stamps, there's a new product in the Kitchen - a new Mini Set - A Taste of the Kitchen, called Multi Step Peach, it's the perfect way to try Multi Step™ Stamping! This mini set also includes a Color Recipe inside the packaging - how cool is that! The other sets being released are: Giant Sunflower, Sunflowers, Owl & Autumn Moon and Pumpkins. I've created samples with each of these sets using various Techniques and Sketches along with my choice of Designer Paper - from Basic Grey, the two embossed cards also fit the Basic Grey Embossing Challenge.

I used SCS Sketch 247 and the CuttleBug Highlights to create this card. To create the coloring on the pumpkins you'll be stamping and masking. Stamp the center pumpkin as follows: #1 Tangelo stamp off, #2 Tangelo, #3 Potters Clay, #4 Potters Clay, #5 Potters Clay. Mask with Eclipse Tape, stamp smaller pumpkins using same colors. Mask, stamp vine as follows: #1 Cottage Ivy stamp off, #2 Cottage Ivy, #3 Cottage Ivy, #4 Cottage Ivy. Remove masks, stamp stems: #2 Potters Clay, #1 Dessert Sand. Stamp Blossom on scratch White: #1 Dandelion, #2 Tangelo, #3 Tangelo. Cut and pop up on a dimensional.

This cute Sunflower and Watering Can is the set the KSS Georgia Attendees received last week and used with their Make & Takes. After assembling your Flip Flap Fold card, begin by stamping the smaller Sunflower (1B, 2B and 3B) as follows: #3B Potters Clay, #2B Rhubarb Stalk stamp off, #1 Dandelion. Mask - stamp leaves: #3 VersaFine Imperial Purple, #2 Cottage Ivy, #1 Cottage Ivy stamped off.

Here I used MJ's TSSC88 for inspiration, rotating the sketch. The background was created using the Texturz Plates and the CuttleBug Highlights Technique. Stamp images from the Owl & Autumn Moon set as follows: Moon #1 Dandelion stamped off, #2 Tangelo, #3 Potters Clay. Stamp Bats in Black. Branch #3 Chocolate Chip, #2 Chocolate Chip, #1 Desert Sand. Add Leaves #1 Dandelion, #2 Rhubarb Stalk. Owl: #4, Chocolate Chip, #3 Chocolate Chip, #2 Desert Sand, #1 Desert Sand

This card uses the Torn Frames technique around my Giant Sunflower and Drywall Stitching on the Basic Grey papers. For this particular Sunflower, I found it easier to stamp the flower first, then add my stem. Stamp as follows: Sunflower #3 Potters Clay, #2 Rhubarb Stalk, #1 Dandelion - ink edges with Rhubarb before stamping. Stem: #2 Cottage Ivy, #3 Imperial Purple, #1 Cottage Ivy stamped off. Leaves: #3 Imperial Purple, #2 Cottage Ivy, #1 Cottage Ivy stamped off. Ladybug: #3 Imperial Purple, #2 Rhubarb Stalk, #1 Rhubarb Stalk stamped off.
