Play Date Cafe - Within your Heart


It's time for another Play Date Cafe Challenge!  This week Mona issued the following color challenge:  Light Green, Light Blue and Off White.  Aren't these colors beautiful together!  You can see her inspiration piece at the bottom of my post.

I used the color palette to stamp the beautiful flowers from Kitchen Sink Stamps 3 Step Hydrangea and Multi Step Lilacs sets.  Normally when I stamp using Kitchen Sink Stamps, I use three or more ink colors to stamp the images, for today's card I used just one color for the flowers and one for the leaves/stem (see color recipe below).  The flowers were stamped on Vanilla card stock, then cut with an Oval Spellbinders Die.  I sponged the edges with Chocolate Chip, then layered on a Chocolate panel that was cut using Spellbinders Labels Ten, then layered on a Bashful Blue Oval.  This piece is layered on a beautiful piece of pattern paper by Donna Salazar.  I just loved the elements on this piece, and cut it to include the wonderful sentiment.  To coordinate with the paper, I added some Basic Grey Pearls, and a few punched Butterflies. 

If you've been following my last few Kitchen Sink Stamps projects, I've been including Videos to show how to stamp using these wonderful Multi Step Stamps.  I don't have one for today's card, but I'll  be posting one on Monday using the Kitchen Sink Stamps 3Step Hydrangea, so be sure to check back.
