Happy Kitchen Sink Stamps Monday!
We made it!
My family and I, have made our long trek from Southern California to the Land of 10,000 Lakes and are enjoying our family vacation in the north woods of Minn. [1st photo: of the lake from our cabin, right after a good, long rain. 2nd photo: some of the cabins along the shore. All I can say is… Heaven on earth! ]
I was planning on having my Monday KSS posts all scheduled for you … but then I thought, “What fun is that? Not sharing photos until after we get back home!” So, I threw in the bare (not bear! LOL) minimum of supplies into my suitcase, along with the challenge of….”Multi-Step Stamping on the Road”. 🙂
I limited myself to bringing 2 small and 2 mini stamp sets (2 sentiment sets: Vintage Words & Simple Sentiments and 2 Multi Step Stamps: Multi-Step Shamrocks & Clover and Multi-Step Ducks and Pigs … which should cover me for two weeks). These two sizes easily slipped into a sandwich ziplock bag. I pre-cut a handful of cardstock with the intentions of creating single layer cards only (GASP!). I packed two small acrylic blocks (1″x1″ & 2″x2″) and only a handful of Memento dew drop inks. Yes, picking which colors to pack was the hardest part for me to decide. LOL! So, after I picked 2 greens, a yellow & a pink ( seemed like a must for Shamrocks, Ducks and Pigs), I shut my eyes and grabbed a handful more of ink. That was another challenge for myself… work with whatever colors I grab! LOL!
