Clear Calendars and Gift Card Holders - Kitchen Sink Stamps POM

Happy Wednesday! I'm happy to share with you my creations for Kitchen Sink Stamps October Project of the Month. My projects use a variety of Kitchen Sink Stamps, Memento Inks and the Clear Business Card and Calendar Cases now carried at Kitchen Sink Stamps. Just a reminder, when ordering at Kitchen Sink Stamps you can save 10% on your orders when you use code LISA10KSS. Happy Savings!

I just love the Business Card size case - it's perfect for Gift Cards! On this case, I used the Multi Step Sunflowers and Vintage Words. Can't you just see these done up for Holidays, Baby Showers or Birthdays!

I stamped the Multi Step Sunflowers as follows:

  • Stem: #3 Memento Cottage Ivy, #1 Memento Cottage Ivy – stamp off, #4 Imperial Purple, #2 Memento Cottage Ivy, #1 Memento Cottage Ivy – stamp off, #3 Imperial Purple
  • Sunflowers: #3 Memento Desert Sand, #2 Memento Dandelion, #1 Memento Dandelion, #5 Imperial Purple, #4 Memento Potters Clay.
  • Lady Bug: #1 Memento Rhubarb – stamp off, #2 Memento Rhubarb, #3 Imperial Purple

Below I've used the Multi Step Trees, Multi Step Pumpkins and Multi Step Owl &Autumn Moon to create a few calendar pages

I Stamped the Multi Step Trees as follows:
  • #1 Memento Rose Red stamped off, #2 Memento Rose Red, #3 Memento Cocoa. Branch: #1 Memento Cocoa, #2 Memento Cocoa, #3 Memento Cocoa.
To create the grass hill, I simply tore a piece of copy paper, placed it over my stamped image, and then sponged on Mellow Moss Ink.

The Tree from the Multi Step Owl & Autumn Moon was stamped as follows:
  • #1 Memento Cocoa, #2 Memento Cocoa, #3 Memento Cocoa. The leaves were randomly stamped using Pumpkin Patch Spectrum Pad. The Bats stamped in Memento Black.
The Brown Hills are actually just two pieces of torn Chocolate card stock, layered to resemble dirt.
The Pumpkin from the Multi Step Pumpkins is stamped as follows:
  • #1 Memento Potters Clay stamped off, #2 Memento Potters Clay stamp off, repeat, #3 Memento Cocoa stamp off, #4 Memento Potters Clay, #5 Memento Potters Clay, repeat. Stem - #2 Memento Cottage Ivy, #1 Memento Potters Clay.
