Kitchen Sink Crew Challenge #21



With today being the first Monday of the month, it is time for another Kitchen Sink Crew Challenge! Designer Lisa Somerville is hosting KSCC#21 and has asked that we use stitching on our card for this month's challenge. My sewing machine is on permanent loan to my daughter-in-law since seamstress is not a hat that I wear, but I trotted across the street to my mother's house. She is the seamstress in our family so she has a machine that does all kinds of fancy stitches. I found one that looks just like my KSS pinecones!! How fun is that!!! I hate sewing fabric, but sewing paper is a blast!!



I need several masculine winter birthday cards this month so I thought this greenery and pinecones would work well for the guys in my life!

I stamped Layer 4 of the pine needles first in SU Handsome Hunter. I then added the pinecones and masked them. Next I stamped the remaining layers of pines.

Stamps: Multi Step Build a Garland and Multi Step Berries (sentiment) by Kitchen Sink Stamps

Papers: US Vanilla, Kraft, Chocolate Chip, and Old Olive by Stampin' Up

Inks:  Greenery - Layer 4 - SU Handsome Hunter, Layer 3 - SU Old Olive, Layer 2 - SU Old Olive, Layer 1 - SU Kiwi Kiss

           Pinecones - Layer 1 - Memento Potter's Clay stamped off once, Layer 2 - Memento Potter's Clay, Layer 3 - Memento Dark Cocoa stamped off once, Layer 4 - Memento Dark Cocoa

          Sentiment - Memento Dark Cocoa

Tools: Sewing Machine, Cuttlebug Herringbone Embossing Folder, SU Oval Punches

Embellishments: Brown Thread, Dimensionals

Hope you can play along with the Kitchen Sink Crew Challenge #21! Three lucky winners will end up with some KSS cash to spend at the Kitchen Sink Store!! And with new stamps being released on January 12, who wouldn't want some extra money to spend?? Remember to use your Kitchen Sink Stamps and add your entry to the Kitchen Sink Blog using Mr. Linky before the challenge ends on January 22!
