KS Monday–A Gift of Love




Happy Kitchen Sink Monday everyone and happy MLK’s Birthday for my friends in the U.S.

I know it’s going to mess up my week since today is holiday but I can’t complain that I get to sleep in the morning :)


The card above was created with a couple of stamp sets… Multi Step Gift and Big & Bold Swashes. The word “Love” is from Multi Step Ribbons for Causes I combined a few of challenges from KS Crew Cupboard .

- Thursday Word of the Week Challenge (Wow01) – get inspired from a word “GIFT”

- Saturday Case the Crew Challenge (SCCC02) – this card by Julie


You know we post fun challenges over KS Forum every day? While checking out the forum, be sure to visit KS Gallery also. 


These are the steps I did for each image:
(Present Box) 3rd – Memento rhubarb stalk, 2nd – Memento rose bud, 1st – rose bud (1 x stamp off), 4th – VersaFine imperial purple (1 x stamp off)

(Ribbon) 3rd – imperial purple (1 x stamp off), 2nd – rhubarb stalk, 1st – rhubarb stalk (1 x stamp off), 1st imperial puprl (1 x stamp off) again




This card was made last week for other challenges including the challenge I host every Tuesday over the KS Crew Cupboard.

- Sunday Everything Plus Kitchen Sink (EP01) - create a card using the rule of 3

- Monday 10 Minutes Card Challenge (10MCC02) – one layer card

- Tuesday Kitchen Pantry Challenge (KPC02) – use ribbons

- Wednesday Stock Up on Occasions Challenge (KSOCValentine) – Valentine’s Day cards with red, pink & purple



The set is the new set, Multi Step Sweet Heart Roses. I used the little hearts in the set & the words. I really love those challenges…it really helps me try outside my comfort zone!






That’s it from me! Be sure to check out what other KS Crews are cookin’ for KS Monday today!!
