KS Monday – Jul 5th, 2010




Hello and happy Kitchen Sink Monday, everyone~

I’m still in Mississippi right now but I’m driving home this afternoon. Hope you had a great weekend.

Although we are taking a summer break for Kitchen Sink Crew Challenge, that doesn’t mean we stop cookin’ with KS Stamps!!


For today’s card, I used Multi Step Sunflowers :):) Just perfect for this time of the year, don’t you think? Sunflowers are definitely my favorite summer flower! I paper pierced for the water streak so that the water can looked like it was watering the flowers. The word “Thanks” was used from Other Important People. After I stamped and placed all images in place, I draw the line inside the edge with a multi liner pen (0.05) and a ruler. To finish the card, I put the ribbon and button with vintage twine.

This card was also used the color combo from SCS Color Combination challenge 275 (CC275).


These are the steps I did for each image:
(Sunflowers) 1st – SU barely banana, 2nd – SU so saffron, 3rd – SU pumpkin pie, 4th – Memento rich cocoa, 5th – Memento tuxedo black

(leaves) 1st – SU mellow moss, 2nd – SU always artichoke (1 x stamp off), 3rd – always artichoke

(water can) 1st – SU regal rose (1 x stamp off), 2nd – regal rose, 3rd – SU real red (1 x stamp off), 4th – real red
