KSS 10 Minute Monday - Fading Images

My thought for this week's 10 minute card was to stamp very pale and gentle images with a bold sentiment over them. For that reason I did not stamp a single image without stamping off the ink from the image at least once. Most layers were stamped off two or three times. I think this technique has possibilities. I will continue to experiment with it. If you create a card you would like to share in the Kitchen Sink Gallery using this technique and your Kitchen Sink images, add keyword 10MC83 to your entry.

Honoring texasgrammy!

In my stamping lifetime, it has been an honor and privilege of mine to have the opportunity to meet and stamp with a number of Splitcoaststampers' Dirty Girls. It was probably about ten years ago by now that I traveled with friends to a north Texas Splitcoaststampers' gathering in Arlington when I met Bev, aka texasgrammy. She was so kind and lots of fun to talk stamping with.  I still remember the card she created for the swap. It had some cute SU handbags and bling!


Today I get the honor of casing a card from her amazing SCS gallery to honor her at Queen for the Day!
Congratulations, Bev, on this well deserved honor! The card I have chosen is this fun Christmas Thank You design. Thanks for the wonderful inspiration, Bev.


I cut my own light socket from an old stamp I no longer use to stamp over the end of the KSS light bulb so that I could create a string of lights. I connected the lights using a Copic marker.

KSS 10MC84 Birthday Cards for Guys

This week I have created 10 minute birthday cards for the guys in my life using images from Kitchen Sink Stamps. Yesterday while visiting Tuesday Morning I ran into a card maker's dream. They were selling 24 sheet packets of Graphics 45 designer paper for $3.99. The quality is excellent and although all 24 sheets are the same design, they are double-sided designs. I bought one of every style they had. The color palette in many of them is perfect for masculine cards.

KSS Release Day!!

There is much excitement in The Kitchen today with the release of three new stamp sets! I have had so much fun creating with them during the past week, and I think you are going to love them, too!

To show off Multi Step Classic Old Truck, I have mixed together bits and pieces of several Kitchen Sink sets and a good bit of masking to create these two country scenes. This set comes with a fabulous mix of sentiments to make a wide variety of masculine cards. I couldn't wait to load up a Christmas tree in the truck bed to create my second Christmas card for 2012!  I hope you can see some of the fun possibilities!

Maria has worked super hard to make this truck super easy to stamp and it is!! You are going to love it!!

Ruched Ribbon - KSS 10 Minute Card #79

Thanks so much for stopping by to check out this week's Kitchen Sink Stamps' 10 minute design. Before I jump into it, I wanted to let you know that next Monday, Kitchen Sink Stamps will be releasing 3 new stamp sets. Look for some sneak peeks to begin popping up toward the end of the week with the full reveal on Monday, July 9.

For this week's Kitchen Sink Stamps 10 minute card design, I had fun playing with ruched ribbon. I just slapped Scor Tape on the back of my grosgrain ribbon and bunched it up any which way across the card front. One great thing about using this method to attach ribbon is that it fits smoothly into an envelope and does not require extra postage! In the Kitchen Sink Gallery the keyword for this week's design is 10MC79.
