We get by with a little help from our (stampin’) friends!

… Happy Kitchen Sink Monday!

Had so much stamping fun…

…  this past week with all the challenges, tips, and inspirational spotlights! I haven’t stamped this much in a LONG time and the best part, I have my family covered for Valentine’s Day EARLY!!! It sure is nice to stamp along with the KSCrew and KSS Forum Members. It is that extra support (or inky creative nudge) we all can use from time to time. 🙂

Here are few cards from last week’s challenges.

The first card is for Angela’s challenge: 3 is a Magic Number (EP01) and Lisa’s color challenge for Valentine’s Day (KSOCValentine). It is hard to see in the photo, but I added Distress Stickles (Rock Candy) with my finger to little coat the hearts in both cards. The effect looks like “sugared” hearts.

The second card is for Makiko’s challenge: All about Ribbons (KPC01).  This challenge has fun for this card… a great way to use up trimmed ends of ribbon! 🙂

Please remember to check what the rest of the KS Crew has cooked up for you this KSS Monday.
