KS Monday–Card Positioning Systems



Hello and Happy Kitchen Sink Monday everyone~

I hope you had a wonderful weekend. To kick off a new week, we have a fun sketch you can play with. Kitchen Sink Stamp is the company sponsor for Card Position Systems 194 (CPS194)! I hope you have a time to play along the challenge with us. Be sure to check out the CPS Blog on Wednesday for what you could win!! HERE is the page you can enter your card(s). Good luck and enjoy creating :):)


This is my take on the sketch.





SONY DSCI used 3 Step Holly & Mistletoe set to design the main image & holly frame. This set is the one of the first Christmas sets KSS released and I just got it for my KSS collection (Thanks Maria!!). I don’t know why I waited to get the set til now… the images are absolutely fabulous!

For the holly frame, I adhered the gold glitter to fancy up :) and I trimmed around the greeting and attached it on the bottom. To finish off, I embellished the stamped bow (it’s also from H&M set)! Isn’t the bow gorgeous or what?


These are the steps I did for each image (All inks are Memento): 
(Mistletoe) 3rd – paris dusk, 2nd – cottage ivy, 1st – bamboo leaves

(Holly Leaves) 3rd – cottage ivy , 2nd – bamboo leaves, 1st – bamboo leaves (1 x stamp off)

(Berries & Bow) 3rd – rhubarb stalk, 2nd – lady bug, 1st – lady bug (1 x stamp off)
