The Kitchen Sink is full to the brim … New Hummingbirds & A Rewards Program

Happy Kitchen Sink Monday!

(If you are looking for the winners to our April Stamp Release Give-Away, you can find them HERE.)


Besides New Stamps today … I have other great News coming from the Kitchen!  The KSS Store now has a Rewards Program!!! YaHooo!

That’s right, now being a Registered KSS Store Customer has its rewards! When you buy 10 stamp sets (of the same size), your next stamp set (same size), is FREE!

• If you aren’t already a registered customer in the KSS Store, you can sign up and start adding up your reward points with your first purchase.

• If you already have a customer store account with us, make sure you log in before you complete your next order. You want to make sure your purchase counts towards building up your reward points. 🙂

All the details about our New Reward Program can be found HERE.


Now… on with some samples to one our newest sets: Multi Step Hummingbirds.

This card was originally for one of Lynn’s wonderful 10 minute card challenge – 10MC68…but when you 1/2 way cut through what was supposed to be an emboss … you improvise! LOL!

Today, I am spotlighting one of the 4 new stamp sets available starting today! To see them all, you can go HERE.

Now, ever since the release of (and out of stock), Special Edition 3 Step Hummingbird, so many of you made it clear how much you enjoy hummingbirds…. but I knew that the 3 Step version needed work to get that “color blaze” just right.

So, I went back to the drawing board and created two new hummingbirds! My first card shows the simpler hummingbird (without the “blaze” of color on its head or neck) and it is 4 steps. My second card shows the second hummingbird in the mini stamp set. This one is a bit more complex, due to that “blaze” of color on its head and neck. This hummingbird is 8 steps.

I know… you’re thinking “What! 8 steps?”

But seriously, it isn’t as bad as it sounds. I broke this little fellow in half (Yikes! That doesn’t sound very nice at all!). That comes to 4 steps for the head and 4 for the body. The ID Film has a big red dot where to reconnect the bird back together.

By splitting this image into two seperate halves, allows this birdie two different flying positions and an open area for that intense “POP” of color for the head/neck. Directions  for lining the head & body back together with an optional “flying postion” can found in the Hummingbirds (Multi Step) Color Recipe,  which is now in the KSS Forum.

Here is a quick reference guide for the two different ways of lining the seperate halves of the hummingbird back together.

Have I scared you?

I hope not. Might sound complicated… but really it’s not. You build the head then the body

You CAN do it! I know you can! 🙂
