Kitchen Sink Monday

I decided today to mix up a couple of my favorite Kitchen Sink Christmas sets to create another Christmas card to add to my stash. I started with the four jingle bells in the center of the card. I stamped the first layer in Marigold Morning, the second in Color Box Metallic Gold, the third in Close to Cocoa, and the final layer was stamped with Versamark and embossed with gold embossing powder.

I then masked the bells and stamped the holly. The first holly layer was stamped with Wild Wasabi stamped off once, the second Wild Wasabi, and the third Handsome Hunter.

The berries were stamped with Real Red craft ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.

The ribbons were stamped with Purely Pomegranate stamped off once, Purely Pomegranate, and Bravo Burgundy. The sentiment was added with Bravo Burgundy.

Kitchen Sink Stamps:
Bells Multi Step Clear Stamps
Holly & Mistletoe Multi Step Clear Stamps

Papers: Purely Pomegranate, Bravo Burgundy and US White by Stampin' Up and Figgy Pudding by BasicGrey

Inks: Marigold Morning, Close to Cocoa, Wild Wasabi, Handsome Hunter, Real Red, Purely Pomegranate, Bravo Burgundy by Stampin' Up, Metallic Gold by ColorBox, and Versamark

Embellishments: Gold Embossing Powder, Clear Embossing Powder, Gold Ribbon
