Kitchen Sink Stamps

Today is the release of the new Kitchen Sink Stamps!!  GO SEE!!!!  What a GREAT variety!  Can’t wait to play when I get home!

Go see what the girls made!










This is what happens when I am making music with this group of people all week long, they get paper named after them!  This is a collection of papers inspired by the Renaissance Wind Band based here in Philadelphia  Piffaro!  Each paper is named after a different instrument in the ensemble.  The Shawm is the ancient version of an oboe, The Sackbut was an early trombone, the Lute was the first guitar and the Dulcien was the first bassoon!  I think you all know what a Recorder is!  I hope you enjoy! Go here for the files and click on the green arrow underneath the images upon arrival.






Take some time and go see some examples from these amzing card making chicks!

Here is my sample using my Kitchen Sink Stamps Snow Flurry set!

I used liquid pearls to make some of the paper really pop.

I know everyone is sick and tired of seeing red white and blue, but what about pink, white and pink? 😉  Here is my soft and gilrlie approach to the Fourth!  If you want to participate in the soft and girlie challenge, just add yours to splitcoast under keyword: ssnotime42!

OK…I am not going to lie.  It is HOT here.  We are in the middle of an insane heat wave and people…I don’t like it!  So when I wanted to play in my searing hot studio last night, I decided on the new Kitchen Sink 3 step Hibiscus Release! Now, you really can’t tell from the picture, which is a shame, but all of the flowers…background and the main image is embossed with clear embossing powder.  The sentiment was stamped and gone over with a ware pen to give it a water colored look to it.  My new fascination has been to use my pinking shears on things.  So I used them on the berry sorbet card stock as well as the ribbon to bring it a little added interest.  Hope you have a cool day!  I am off to my last day of teaching.  The kids will be singing their final exams today.

Stamps: Kitchen Sink 3 step Hibiscus Paper: Wild Wasabi SU!, Berry Sorbet PTI Ink: pretty in pink, regal rose, berry sorbet with some real red, real red, bravo burgundy Other: Ribbon:  PTI berry sorbet grosgrain

Here is a box I designed using the new stamps that have just been released from the Kitchen.

I recently had a friend /colleague graduate from music school.  The music degree colors for the tassles are pink.  I feel kind of bad for the guys who have to wear this, but oh well.  She isn’t a guy so I am sure it won’t matter.  I have known her since she was 12, and now I am working with her  on a regular basis.  So this box will hold a nice gift card for her.  So…here is the box.  I originally thought I would use the other side as the front, but when I made that detail on the flap, I thought it made a nice focal point.  So I switched my plans.  This box is nice and versatile that way.  I hope you like the design of it and try it yourself!
