KS Monday – Aug 9th, 2010



Hello and happy Kitchen Sink Monday everyone~

Another new week starts and I can feel it’s going to be one busy week for me…school shopping, cheer & football practices, some deadlines to finish and swimming “To-Do” lists ;)


I decided to create a clean & simple card for today’s KS Monday using Multi Step Trees. I don’t think I have used the set as much as I’d like to, but every time I stamp the tree images, I get goose bumps…they are so realistic and amazing! Kudos to Maria!! I stamped the sentiment using Words for Comfort & Joy and embellished with the seam biding ribbon & button.




These are the steps I did for each image:
(Tree) 2nd – SU wild wasabi, 1st – SU pear pizzazz, 3rd – SU old olive / SU creamy caramel for the trunk, 4th – early espresso
