Seeds of Today - CPS#257

Happy  Kitchen Sink Stamps Monday, thanks for stopping by, I hope you had a great weekend!  It's been unseasonably warm here, we actually but the screens in the windows.  I can't ever recall putting them in so early, I sure hope Mother Nature isn't going to play any cruel jokes on us and hit us with a cold snap!  Can you believe another KSS DT member is celebrating their birthday - that makes three of us in the past week!  Happy Birthday Julie - hope you have a wonderful day!

Inspired by this weeks CPS Sketch, I created today's card using Kitchen Sink Stamps 3 Step Butterflies and 3 Step Hibiscus sets.


The sentiment is stamped in Soft Suede on a Vanilla panel, then cut with Spellbinders Petite Oval Die, layered on a Soft Suede panel cut from Labels Twenty-Five.  The butterfly was stamped on Vanilla, cut out and added with Dimensionals.  I dyed the Seam Binding with Ranger Antique Linen Distress Stain, and added a Rolled Rose (Silhouette file) cut from Saffron card stock, and added some Zva Creative Flourishes to embellish.

Details:
Stamps - Kitchen Sink Stamps 3 Step Butterflies, 3 Step Hibiscus
Ink - Soft Suede, Celery, Saffron
Card Stock - Soft Suede, Saffron, Vanilla
Other - Big Shot, Spellbinder Petite Oval/Labels Twenty-Five, Dimensionals, Prima Pattern Paper, Sponge Dauber, Silhouette Cameo, Ranger Rock Candy Distress Stickles, Zva Creative Flourish Pearls
