KS Monday -- Feb 22nd, 2010

Happy Monday and Kitchen Sink Monday everyone~ I'm going to have a busy week and what a wonderful way to start it with Kitchen Sink :):)

Today's card is Clean and Simple (CAS). I always love the look of CAS cards and it works very wonderfully with pretty images like KSS stamps, don't you think??
This wonderful sketch is from Clean & Simple Stamping blog (FTL79). I added the buttons to embellish the card.
The stamps I used for the card are Multi Step Tulip Garden set and Simple Sentiment set.

These are the steps I did for each image (all inks are Memento unless mentioned) :
1st - angel pink, 2nd - rose bud (1 x stamp off), repeat 2nd step, 3rd- rose bud, 4th - lilac posies
(stems) 1st - pear tart, 2nd - bamboo leaves, 3rd- cottage ivy

I had very fun with playing sketch so I made more. I just changed the stamps, colors and embellishments. The sentiment for each card was stamped with Simple Sentiment set (again) .

These are the steps I did for each image (all inks are Memento unless mentioned) :
1st - SU almost amethyst, 2nd - lulu lavender, 3rd- SU lavender lace, 4th - grape jelly
(leaves) 1st - pear tart, 2nd - bamboo leaves, 3rd- cottage ivy

Stamps: 3 Step Hydrangea

(pansies) 1st - summer sky, 2nd - summer sky, repeat 2nd step, 3rd- bahama blue, 4th - paris dusk (1 x stamp off), repeat 4th step
(leaves) 1st - pear tart, 2nd - bamboo leaves, 3rd- cottage ivy

Stamps: 3 Step Pansies

(roses) 1st - dandelion, 2nd - cantaloupe, 3rd- tagelo (1 x stamp off), repeat 3rd step, 4th - tangelo
