New Stamps, a New Challenge & more fun news from the Kitchen!

What a great way to start a new month, than with new stamps and a new KSCrew Challenge!

Connie is our hostess this month for KS Crew Challenge – #23.

Connie’s challenge: Masking

One of my favorite ways to stamp, is masking! A great way of creating a bouquet of flowers with few images, is to mask.

Today’s card uses one of this month’s new stamp sets (and sneak peek #1) called, Multi Step Lilacs.

First I stamped the light pink bunch of Lilacs in the center. Using Eclipse masking tape (I love this product), I made one mask of Lilacs using Step #1 stamp. Then masking the pink Lilacs, I add another bunch of flowers on each side. Moving my mask to each Lilac bunch to stamp the leaves to create a spring bouquet. I also added a 4th bunch of Lilacs with pop-up dots, for some added dimension.

Thanks Connie for the super fun challenge!

Each Lilac color combo can be found in the Lilac Color Recipe found HERE. I did this color recipe a bit different than I usually do and I sure would love to know which way do you like better????
