KS Monday -- Aug 24 , 2009

Happy Monday and welcome back everyone for another Kitchen Sink Monday!! My kids are going to back to school today!! Yippie!! I don't hope you think I'm a terrible mom but I was counting this day was coming for a long time, :P Have you ever seen Staple's CM? That's exactly how I feel :):):) Can you tell my stampin' mood is also back to school??

I used 4 sets for today's card - School Days, Butterflies, Kittens & Pup, and Mix it Up!. I cut off the images with using the scalloped square Nestabilities die as masking on the panels. I put a mouse pad under the panels and stamped each step a little harder to the edges so that the impressions were shown nicely. The colors are reminded of old school style so I added ink distressing and the vintage embellishments to keep the style. I hope you will like it.

The images were stamped with these steps:
(apple) 1st - barely banana, 2nd - ruby red (stamping off), 3rd - ruby red, 4th - riding hood red
(butterfly) 1st - baja breeze (stamping off), 2nd - baja breeze, 3rd - pacific point
(kittens) 1st - so saffron, 2nd - more mustard (stamping off), 3rd - more mutard, 4th - close to cocoa
(ruler) - 1st - creamy caramel, 2nd - close to cocoa, 3rd - tuxedo black

I love everything about this card Maki. It has such a great vintage feel to it, and would be the perfect gift for a teacher. Again, I'm awed by your great attention to detail. Such a great idea.
