Hi there, this card was made for the color challenge on SCS. I just recieved this awesome set of stamps made by Inkadinkado. We don't have a store here that carries these stamps so I ask my design team buddies if they had one. Jan was so sweet to get it for me! Thank you so much.
The colors today are Going Gray, Basic Gray, and Yo Yo yellow. I used Sahara Sand, Going Gray, Eggplant, and Black ink. I really didn't think I'd like these colors but I think they worked out nicely. The sentiment is Kitchen Sink Stamps
Have a great day!

Some Candy!! & Tips on Stamping on Dark Paper

I'm loving this 3-Step Rose Set!! I know you will too:)
So many of you had questions about my WT 150 card so I thought it would be fun to have the 3-Step Rose set as blog candy!!! Maria owner of Kitchen Sink Stamps will mail the winner a brand new set. Thanks so much Maria!!
To enter all you have to do is leave a comment on this post telling me what type flower you'd like made into a stamp 3-Step Kitchen Sink Style? One winner will be drawn using random org. Jan 31st. The winner needs to email me your address so Maria can ship it to you. If the winner has not claimed the set by Feb 2nd on Feb 3rd I will draw a new name. I'm excited to see your flower ideas. Good luck everyone!!

I hope this answers the questions I've gotten. I took a few pictures so you can see what your card should look like as you go. I find the best way to apply the paint is with a foam brush. Really work the paint into the brush and wipe off any excess paint on paper towels. Apply the paint to stamp ( Step 1 ) stamp it onto your dark colored card stock I used Choc Chip. Clean off your stamp with a wet towel and let the image dry completely. Since these stamps are on acrylic blocks it's easy to stamp the image again. Repeat Step 1. Clean stamps. Let dry completely. The first picture shows you while the paint is still wet it is very white but as it dries it lightens. The next three pictures show you how it looks as you add the steps. The finished card can be seen here

This is really fun to do. I hope you will try it. If you do please post a link to your card. I would love to see them. Feel free to email me if you have more questions.

Happy New Year!!

Sorry I'm a day late with my Happy New Year wishes!! I had some major health issues the past few days, not exactly my plan to start off 2008. I'm feeling much better today and wanted to let you know how much I appreciate all of you that visit my blog! When I started blogging I wasn't sure what I was doing or how to do it! You've stuck with me and I thank you. Something you may not know about me I collect elephants. I ran across a online store that has the cutest elephant stamps. I had to buy them both. The store is Peachy Keen Stamps. This was my first order from them and the customer service was great, super fast shipping. I'm sure I haven't done this little guy justice I need to practice making him look cute and adorable. I admire so many stamper's that can color animals so well they look so cute you just want to hug them:) The words are from Never a Loss 4 Words by Kitchen Sink Stamps Well I hope your having a great 2008!
Thanks for stopping by:)
