KSCC#25 – Julie’s Sketch



Hello everyone~ It’s the first Monday of the month….that means it’s time for Kitchen Sink Crew Challenge!! Julie is hosting the challenge #25 (KSCC#25) and she’s created the wonderful sketch for us to play!! Hope you will play along with us :):)

SONY DSC Since the next Sunday is Mother’s Day, I made the card for My MIL to send her mom (my grandmother in law). Grandma Murphy loves lilacs so I hope this card will bring her smile :):)

I used Multi Step Lilacs set and stamped each step. “To Mom” from Whole Family set was stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with black EP. I’m terrible with heat embossing…so I re-stamped the words with VersaMark and heat embossed with black EP again. I probably couldn’t do that if the stamps were not clear!

The pale purple layer for the main mat was used faux stitching. I used the grosgrain ribbon, buttons tyed with black wax twines to embellishing the card.

These are the steps I did for each image (all inks are Stampin’ Up! unless mentioned):
(Lilacs) 3rd – eggplant envy (1 x stamp off), 1st – pale plum, 2nd – perfect plum, 4th – eggplant envy

(Leaves) 1st – kiwi kiss (1 x stamp off), 2nd – kiwi kiss, 3rd – old olive

(Stems) 2nd – old olive (1 x stamp off), 1st – kiwi kiss

Such beautiful Lilacs Maki. I love the colors and how you used both Bows and Buttons on your creation. All your purples and greens match so perfectly. Always a treat to be inspired by your cards.
