Kitchen Sink Stamps - New Stamps...New Challenge...New Forums and a Guest!

Happy Kitchen Sink Stamps Monday! Kitchen Sink Stamps is starting the year off with a BANG!  Not only did the new KSS Forums and Gallery open this past weekend (thanks to those who joined us), there's also new stamps , a new Crew Challenge and we have Barbara Washington joining us as a Guest Designer this month!

This Crew Challenge is to create a 10 Minute Card using Kitchen Sink Stamps.  Easy, right?  I think it takes me at least 10 minutes to coordinate my papers and card stock!  But a challenge is a challenge, so I set out with my some of new KSS images and went to work trying to beat the clock!
My first card uses the new Multi Step Sweet Heart Roses isn't that heart rose bouquet just beautiful!


The Heart Roses are stamped on Vanilla card stock, I used the Wisped Frames Technique in Coral around the heart (it doesn't show in the photo, but is there IRL).  The papers are from Basic Grey.

Details:
Stamps - Kitchen Sink Stamps Multi Step Sweet Heart Roses
Ink - Ruby Red, Rose Red, Black, Coral
Card Stock - Coral, Black, Vanilla, Red
Other - Scallop Edge Punch, Spellbinders Circle Dies, Stipple Brush, Gems, SAMJ
Sketch - Cardabilities #18

Color Recipe:

My next card features the new Multi Step Champagne Celebration

I love the classic look of Black and White cards.  On the bottom White panel, I stamped the sentiment from this set in Black, then embossed  the panel with the Damask folder.  After stamping and assembling the rest of the card, I added some Stickles to the Champagne glasses for some sparkle.

I have one other card to share - using the new Multi Step Bunch O' Balloons, but it didn't make the 10 minute challenge, and I haven't quite finished it, so I'll be posting it later this week!  Both of my cards fit the Simon Says Stamp and Show Your Newest Stamp Challenge.

Ooooo love those roses! The b/w card is a stunner! Lots of mojo in these beauties in such a short (10 min) amount of time!

SmilynStef said...

As always you rock those stamps ... I never seem to have the right shades of ink to make the layered stamps look right, but you always manage to pick just the right shades.
