KS Monday–Positive and Negative



Hello and happy Kitchen Sink Monday everyone~

My kids are in the Thanksgiving break this week and I am going to have less time to stamp unfortunately ;) However, the less time doesn’t mean that I create the less cards! I managed to make two card with less time for today’s KS Monday!!



I used 3 Step Holly & Mistletoe for both cards. I designed the holly patterned paper with a 1/4 card size and punched out the circle with the circle Nestabilities. Then I used both of the positive (the circle mat) and negative (the circle window mat) and create two CAS cards. They were used the same sketch from Clean & Simple Stamping (FTL167). It is a kind of fun that they look so different just changing the amount of white space :)


Each image was stamped as following these steps:

Holly – 3rd – SU garden green, 2nd – SU wild wasabi, 1st – SU pear pizzazz.

Berry – 3rd – SU cherry cobbler, 2nd – SU real red (1 x stamp off), 1st – SU pink pirouette. 

Mistletoe – 2nd – wild wasabi , 3rd – garden green, 1st – pear pizzazz.

Bow – 3rd – cherry cobbler, 2nd – real red (1 x stamp off), 1st – SU regal rose.




For this card, I used the negative (the circle window). The mat was lightly sponged with the ink. The mistletoe and bow were stamped on the card base. Then I adhered the holly mat on the card base and frames on the circle window. Simply I added the sentiment.




This one was used the positive (the circle mat). The mat was sponged with the ink and layered on the lacey circle mat.  The card base was dry embossed with the embossing folder. To finish off, I adhered the sentiment mat.
