The Kitchen Sink is FULL today …


B&W-Lisa-flower-with-name… that’s right, it is a very busy day in the Kitchen today!

KSSNovemberChallengeSketchA new KS Crew Challenge … and 6 New Stamps for the Holidays, available Nov. 3rd! Can you believe the Holidays are just around the corner? (YIKES!!!)

A new month means a new KS Crew challenge! Our KS Crew Hostess this month is Lisa, and Lisa has designed this great card sketch for KS Crew Challenge #19! [Please read all the way to the bottom for all the KS Crew Challenge details].

Here is my take on Lisa’s great card sketch, which is also from Saturday’s sneak peek. My card uses one of the new sets coming out tomorrow Smiley from called, Multi Step™ Christmas Lights (MINI). I am having fun with these “Taste of the Kitchen” mini sets…. they are just a small sampling of multi step stamping fun! You will also find a Multi Step™ Christmas Lights Color Recipe PDF file to downloaded by directly clicking HERE.


The Kitchen Sink Crew also has cooked samples using KSS’s New Holiday stamp sets for your viewing.


Thanks Lisa for the wonderful sketch!


Above, I mentioned that 6 new stamp sets for the Holiday Season would be available in the Kitchen Sink Store tomorrow, Nov. 3rd….. but last month’s Early Bird Special was so much fun… I thought we should do it again…. just for all the fabulous In the Sink News readers and readers of the KS Crew (remember… each KS Crew Member has a 10% off code that can be used… any time, any day!). So again, the Kitchen Sink store doors will open one day early for the Early Bird Special!

KSS – Early Bird Special: Nov 2nd, midnight to midnight EST – All orders $50 and over will get FREE Shipping – One Day Only.
International orders: Free Shipping on orders $60 and over on stamps ONLY.

Please NOTE: Shipping & Handling will be charged at the time of checkout and qualifying orders will have the S&H charge refunded upon shipment. Orders with a Pre-Ordered item that qualifies for FREE Shipping, the order will be held and ship when the Pre-Ordered item is available to ship.
