KS Monday–Feb 21st, 2011



Hello and Happy Kitchen Sink Monday everyone~

It’s getting to feel like spring here in Texas!! I don’t complain the warm weather but now we need some spring showers, lol!


I have two cards for today’s KS Monday!

The card above was used the sketch from Friday Sketch Carte Challenge 7 (FSCC07) . Those beautiful colors are inspired from CR84FN Color Challenge 16 (CR84FN16) . I thought there are a lot of things going and maybe too busy… but when I see from thephoto, it doesn’t look too bad, don’t you think? lol.


CR84FN16 Graphic

I used Multi Step Lilacs for the images and 3 Step Hearts & Roses for the saying. The violet lilac was stamped first. Then I masked it and stamped the pink lilac. The saying was stamped one or a couple words at time to fit in the scalloped circle mat. The three borders were created with the border punch and the background was used the embossing folder. I also sponged the BG to emphasize the texture. To finish off, I embellished with pearls and the bow.


This card is also combined with these challenges:

Tuesday Kitchen Pantry Challenge 6 (KPC06)Use pearls

Wednesday Stock Up on Occasions Challenge (KSOCThinkingofYou)Create Thinking of You Card

These are the steps I did for each image:
(Violet Lilac) 4th – VersaFine imperial purple, 3rd – Memento grape jerry,  2nd – Memento sweet plum, 1st – sweet plum (1 x stamp off)

(Pink Lilac) 4th – VersaFine imperial purple (1 x stamp off), 3rd – Memento rose bud,  2nd – rose bud (1 x stamp off), 1st – Memento angel pink





The next one is for Monday 10 Minutes Card Challenge 7 (10MC7). I used 3 Step Get Well Teddy and created this simple get well soon card.

These are the steps I did for each image:
(Teddy Bear) 4th – VersaFine imperial purple, 3rd – SU early espresso,  2nd – SU soft suede, 1st – SU crumb cake
