KS Monday – Aug 23rd, 2010




Hello and happy Kitchen Sink Monday everyone~

It’s the First Day of School here :):) My kids are off to school after the looooooong summer break. I will miss the lazy summer days but I’m happier that going back to a normal routine again! Plus, we are going to be busy with football games, cheer competitions, Halloween….can’t wait a fall season coming!



Today’s card is pretty much reading my mind, lol. Yes, I’m thinking of the next season :):) and all about the fall colors :):)

I used Multi Step Big Leaves and created 2 different shades of leaves. As you see, they were stamped on the letter designer papers. It looks cool how the prints see through the colors.


These are the steps I did for each image (All inks are from Memento):
(orange leave) 1st – cantaloupe , 2nd – tangelo, 3rd – potter’s clay

(red leave) 1st – cantaloupe, 2nd – lady bug, 3rd – rhubarb stalk 


The greeting, “Thinking of You” is from 3 Step Hibiscus. I stamped it with VersaMark and heat embossed with copper EP. To finish off the card, I added the two tone ribbon with button and brown pearls on the corners.
