Kitchen Sink Stamps - October Release

Happy Kitchen Sink Stamps Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! It's been chilly here, seems like we've skipped over Fall and are headed straight to winter! I hope you've enjoyed my sneak peeks for Kitchen Sink Stamps October Release - today I'm sharing with you the full cards, but before I do, I wanted to give you the details on this months release.

As I was typing this post late Sunday Night, we had the first snowflakes of the year coming down - brrrr!

I experimented with some color combinations for both the leaves and the tree, before I get to those, I wanted to tell you that there are additional leaves on the Multi Step Big Leaves plate and another tree on the Multi Step Tree, so be sure to take a look! For the leaves on my card, I stamped as follows: #1 Memento Pear, #2 Memento Bamboo, #2 Memento Cottage Ivy, #4 Memento Cocoa. (Note I did 3 sets of Green Leaves) Clean stamps. Again I stamped 3 sets as follows #1 Memento Dandelion, #2 Memento Cantaloupe, #3 Memento Desert Sand, #4 Memento Cocoa. Clean Stamps. This time I stamped 5 sets of leaves (you won't see one because it's under the focal image). Stamp as follows: #1 Memento Cantaloupe, #2 Memento Tangelo, #3 Memento Rhubarb, #4 Memento Cocoa. Sponge edges and any White space with Stampin' Up! Soft Suede Ink.

Don't you just love how realistic the leaves and the tree are! For the Multi Step Tree, I stamped as follows on White card stock: #1 Memento Tangelo, #2 Memento Rhubarb (stamp off), #3 Memento Rhubarb, #3 Stampin' Up! Chocolate Chip. The sentiment is from the Multi Step Harvest plate stamped in Memento Cottage Ivy. I sponged the edges with Stampin' Up! Soft Suede, then added the Torn Frames panel in Chocolate Chip card stock.

I hope you'll forgive me, as I didn't write down my ink details when I stamped this card. I did some masking with Eclipse Tape in order to have the Basket of Mums from the new Multi Step Harvest in front of the Hay and the Multi Step Pumpkins in front of and behind the hay. I thought the 3 Step Autumn Squirrel went quite well with these sets, so I added him in too! Doesn't this make for a great Fall or Thanksgiving card!


Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed the cards I created using images from Kitchen Sink Stamps October Release. If you're looking for the other tree card I posted a peek for over the weekend, be sure to check back - as I'll be sharing that this week too!

Beautiful fall cards, Lisa! I really like how you combined the tree and leaf sets--they work perfectly together. And the fall scene you created with the harvest set and the others is so creative!

I found your site by accident and boy am I happy I did! I'm fairly new to stamping,so, this is my first time to hear about this stamp company. The multi step tree is amazing, it looks so real! I just returned from a trip to Vermont, your tree is a wonderful reminder of the colors and trees I saw there. Your card is gorgeous, I can't wait to get the tree stamp and attempt to make it look as good as yours.
