That’s right… after the couple months off, Kitchen Sink Crew Challenge is back, everyone!

The challenge (KSCC#27) is hosted by Connie McCotter and she is challenging us “Ushering in Fall”, make a card/project inspired by the fall…colors, leaves, back to school  anything you can think of when you think of the "Fall".

Aaaaah I love the fall season and this challenge is right up to my alley! I can’t wait to see your challenge project :):)

The challenge due is on Friday, September 24th. To get more detail about the challenge, please visit KSS Blog.


Here is my challenge card…



I used one of the favorite fall set from KSS, Multi Step Harvest. I took my inspiration from the apples & pumpkin colors….they are not only the bright colors for the fall, but also yummy, lol!!

I also used the coordinated cardstock, the designer paper and embellishments. The fall colors always make everything bright and cheerful don’t they?


These are the steps I did for each image (all inks are from Memento):
(red apples) 1st – cantaloupe , 2nd – lady bug, 3rd – rhubarb stalk (1 x stamp off), 4th – rhubarb stalk

(green apples) 1st – dandelion, 2nd – pear tart, 3rd – bamboo leaves (1 x stamp off), 4th – bamboo leaves

(pumpkins) 1st – cantaloupe , 2nd – tangelo, 3rd – potter’s clay (1 x stamp off), 4th – potter’s clay

(bushel basket) 3rd – potter’s clay, 2nd – potter’s clay (1 x stamp off), 1st – desert sand, 4th – rich cocoa
