KSS Lilacs

I promised last week that I would feature the Kitchen Sink Stamps lilac in today's KSS post. (post sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps).The lilac is probably the one KSS flower that I have had the most difficulty aligning properly. That is until now! I have recently joined the MISTI (Most Incredible Stamping Tool Invented) craze! This fabulous tool from My Sweet Petunia makes precision stamp placement a breeze.

  2. This MISTI is something else! I can certainly see the aligning challenges of this stamp set. Both cards are stunning. I especially love how realistic your leaves look in the 2nd card. Wow.

  6. How can you not love the MISTI especially when you can create such utterly beautiful cards! But then I though your pre-MISTI cards were sensational too!

  10. Wow- these look so realistic I can almost smell them! I was hoping you would post the colors you used- I just love these beautiful flowers. How do you use the Misti with layered stamps? I saw it with just one layer...... How do you know placement for it? Beautiful Lynn!!!
