Kitchen Sink Stamps Monday - A Stitch in Time and a Sneak Peek

Happy Kitchen Sink Stamps Monday!  It's also Challenge Monday in the Kitchen, I'm your hostess this month.  This months Challenge theme is Stitching (use any type of stitching on your creations).  I've got two cards to share with you today, both are created using the Drywall Stitching Technique, it's quick and easy!  Besides who really has time to drag out the sewing machine!

Isn't he cute!  The bear image is from Kitchen Sink Stamps 3 Step Get Well Teddy, stamped as follows on White card stock (all ink SU unless noted) #2 Soft Suede stamp off, #3 Soft Suede, #4 Soft Suede, #1 Creamy Caramel.  After stamping, I used the Out of the Box Technique.  The sentiment is made up using words from the 3 Step Get Well Teddy and the word HUGS from a new sentiment sheet being called Simple Sentiments being released next week.  Yep, new KSS images will be arriving in the Kitchen next week, and I can't wait to share them all with you!  Don't forget you can save 10% on all your Kitchen Sink Stamps purchases by using code LISA10KSS.

This next card features the Multi Step Sunflowers, again the sentiment  I used is from Simple Sentiments, being released next week.  For this card, along with the Drywall Stitching Technique, I did quite a bit of masking.  The sunflower was stamped first, masked with Eclipse Tape, then I stamped the leaves, masked those, then added the watering can.  Quite a bit of work, but I just love the outcome!
