Kitchen Sink Stamps - Challenge Monday



Happy Kitchen Sink Stamps Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! It was busy around here Saturday, as both my boys went to Homecoming, and we had a house full of kids after the dance. The weather could have cooperated, but the kids had a wonderful time! Today in the Kitchen is also Challenge Monday - with Angela as our hostess! Angela's challenge is Easy as 1...2...3! So what does that mean? Use One Dimensional, Two Embellishments, Three Stamped Images.

I used the Out of the Box Technique and Faux Painted Paneling Techniques on my card. The large leaf is slightly Out of the Box, and the Faux Painted Paneling is done on the Summer Sun card stock. Both techniques are from past The Technique Junkies Newsletter.

Before I give you the details on my card - here's where my 1-2-3 came in:

  • Dimensional (popped up center of Giant Sunflower)
  • Embellishments - Jumbo Eyelets, Polka Dot Dusty Durango Grosgrain
  • Stamped Images - Multi Step Giant Sunflower, Multi Step Sunflowers, Multi Step Kittens & Pup (sentiment)
Last week KSS Crew Member Dee had stamped sunflowers using images from the Multi Step Giant Sunflowers & the Multi Step Sunflowers, so I drew from that as my inspiration for my focal image.
Giant Sunflower starting with the flower first:
  • #3 Memento Potters Clay, #2 Memento Rhubarb stamped off, #3 Memento Dandelion, #5 Imperial Purple, #4, Potters Clay - repeat.
The Stem/Leaves (note the smaller leaf is from the Multi Step Sunflowers):
  • #1 Memento Cottage Ivy stamped off, #2 Memento Cottage Ivy, #3 Imperial Purple.
When I added the small Sunflower, I started with the Stem - stamping in the same color and order as above. Then added the small button Sunflower from the Multi Step Sunflowers, again stamping in the same colors and order as the Giant Sunflower. I stamped the center of the Giant Sunflower a second time, sponged the edges a bit with Soft Suede then popped it up on a dimensional. The sentiment is from Multi Step Kittens & Pup, stamped in Chocolate Chip.
