In this corner… a New KS Challenge!


Crew-Challenge-logo-sqKS Crew Challenge #16 with Guest Hostess, Emilia.

A new month means a new challenge in the Kitchen… and today we have a Guest Hostess!

I am thrilled that Emilia had time during her busy summer travels to stop in the Kitchen for a visit. This is the second time she has been a Guest Hostess for KSS and it is always a pleasure to see what kind of challenge Emilia has cooked up for us!

Emilia’s challenge for us is: DECORATE YOUR CARD CORNERS
You can use any embellishment, below you find a list of some embellishments you can use but feel free to use any product that you think might look good on your card corners:

Bright-tropical-thanks-half pearls
– rhinestones
– dew drops
– peel-off stickers
– punched flowers
– stamped images
– ribbon
– glitter
– photo corners
– brads
– eyelets


Here is today’s card, I pleated the twill ribbon behind the stamped Hibiscus flower, the same way I pleated the organza ribbon on my Thankful card.


I have written a quick “How I Did It” tutorial, which can be found HERE.

For more beautiful samples to inspire you, visit Emilia, and the rest of the KS Crew
