KS Monday -- Jun 14th, 2010



Happy Monday and welcome to Kitchen Sink Monday, everyone~

I’m recharged and ready to start for the new week again :) I hope you had a wonderful weekend, too.

Today’s card for KS Monday is for this coming Sunday – Father’s Day! I don’t know about you but I have a hard time to create masculine cards… So, when I created this card and saw how it turned out, I was so proud of myself :):) Can you tell my inspiration for the card came from the camouflage military uniform?? I so hope my hubby will notice that, lol.



For the background design, I used Multi Step Big Leaves and 3 Step Letter From the Past. The same ash leaves image (Step 1 stamp only) was stamped with kiwi kiss ink (1 x stamp off) for the background of the sentiment. The sentiment was stamped from Whole Family set. Many of my stamping friends have told me that soft suede color is fabulous….now, I totally understand why…and I’m so happy I finally purchased the color ;)

I used the sketch from SCS Sketch Challenge 284 (SC284) .


These are the steps I did for each image:
(maple leaves) 1st – SU kiwi kiss (1 x stamp off), 2nd – kiwi kiss, 3rd – SU old olive (1 x stamp off), 4th – old olive

(ash leaves) 1st – SU wild wasabi (1 x stamp off), 2nd – wild wasabi, 3rd – SU garden green
