The question: What is your favorite thing about Spring?

Deadline: Sunday the 22nd, 9pm PST

Winners will be announced: Monday morning the 23rd, along with the release of 4 new stamps.

I realized that I had things that I had not shared during the move. If you were at the KSS/Stamping Around workshop in Ohio last June, then this tea towel might look familiar. This was another fun project I had planned for the workshop which had attendees stamping on 100% cotton blank tea towels with Palette Hybrid inks.

I am happy to share this project with everyone now, because for a limited time 100% cotton blanks and Palette Hybrid Inks can be found in the KSS store. I was very happy with how vibrant the Palette inks stayed on the fabric. After the ink was completely dried, I heat set it with a hot iron. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I have absolutely NO idea what kind of flower that is!
    What I love about Spring though is the warm weather, the occasional April shower, the birds’ lovely songs, and my Spring flowers that come up by my front porch! They are so pretty to look at when I come home every day!

    Although Spring is not my favorite season (I know– gasp!– but I really prefer Fall), there are many things that make me happy about these few months. Fresh breezes. The way trees look fuzzy just as they begin to bud. The urge to spring clean– even if “urge” doesn’t always translate to “action.” Oh– and having natural light much longer into the evening to do some stamping!

    By the way, I love the lettuce!
    Best Wishes,

  39. My most favorite thing about ‘spring’ has got to be hearing birds chirp, tweet, trill and sing. It’s such a busy time of the year for them, and they are active from sun-up to sun-down. Sure beats the usual sounds of rain we get most of the winter here in the pacific northwest! 🙂
