KS Monday–Easter Blessings

Hello and happy Kitchen Sink Monday everyone!!

Today is also “First Day of Spring”!! That’s right, Spring is officially here… I know some of you are still having winter days but it won’t be long… you will enjoy sitting outside and smelling those spring flowers!

My kids had their spring break last week and we went camp from Thurs – Sun. It was absolutely the wonderful and perfect weather for camp! We had no internet or cable for a few days….I LOVED those part too… it was nice to stay my mind off from CNN or Headline News for a while.

 

I made two cards with KS challenges before I left for camping.

The card above was made for Tuesday Kitchen Pantry Challenge (KPC10) Focus on Corners. I used Multi Step Bitty Tulips set to create the image and Ready 4 Any Holidays for the saying. I used two different corner punches to create those decorative corners and embellished with turquoise rhinestones. To finish off, the ribbon was embellished with the vintage brad.

 

These are the steps I did for each image:

Purple Tulips: 4th - SU elegant eggplant, 3rd - SU perfect plum, 2nd - SU pale plum, 1st - pale plum (1 x stamp off), 5th - Memento tuxedo black (1 x stamp off)
Yellow Tulips: 4th - SU pumpkin pie, 3rd - SU daffodil delight, 2nd - SU barely banana, 1st - barely banana (1 x stamp off), 5th - cajun craze (1 x stamp off)
Leaves: 4th - SU always artichoke, 3rd - SU old olive, 2nd - SU pear pizazz, 1st - pear pizazz (1 x stamp off)
Glass Bowl: 3rd - VersaFine imperial purple, 2nd - Memento london fog, 1st - Memento summer sky

The next card is Clean and Simple. I was made for Monday 10 Minutes Card 11 (10MC12). It was also combined with Sunday Everything Plus the Kitchen Sink Challenge (EP09) - Create something special for the YOUNG MEN in our lives. I used Multi Step Bunch O’ Balloons set for the single balloon image and Simple Sentiments for the saying. I think the balloon and those fun DP are great for the boy’s birthday card ;)

 

These are the steps I did for each image:

Balloon: 3rd - Memento rhubarb stalk, 2nd - Memento lady bug, 1st - lady bug (1 x stamp off), 4th - VersaFine imperial purple (1 x stamp off)
