Love Multi Step Stamping with Misti

Image

… is just a few of my favorite things!

But before I break into song …  which I could easily start singing because TODAY is a BIG DAY at Kitchen Sink Stamps … but, you will have to keep reading to find out why.

First, it is true, there are few stamping tools I have grown to truly LOVE and would never want to part with … one is my Silhouette electronic cutting machine and the other is the MISTI!

The MISTI makes it so much easier lining up each step when multi-step stamping and a dream when stamping multiples of the same card! I would have to work really hard to get 3 sunflowers precisely in a row without using the MISTI, and no way could I stamp an exact duplicate of the same card as I did here!

And what could I love more than multi-step stamping with the MISTI… but have a super FUN 
BLOG HOP together with My Sweet Petunia (the creator of the MISTI)!

Say it Big … Clean & Simple

Happy Monday!

Anyone remember this card? This was a card I did to show a different masking technique by using clear embossing powder … but that isn’t why I am mentioning it again. I think this card, shows the first time I used this “Thank You” stamp (which is one of the many different – Free “Thank You” stamps that accompany each Kitchen Sink Stamp order).Plumeria Thank you from Kitchen Sink Stamps I soon found that I was grabbing this “Thank You” stamp all the time and started to wish I had one like it for birthdays, get well, hello, etc.

This is how Make a Big Statement was born. I find it is perfect when I want to state the occasion clear and simple (and BIG).

Happy Birthday from Kitchen Sink Stamps

Have a Happy Day!

Ducky Holiday from Kitchen Sink Stamps

                                                                    

 Card #1 uses the 2 of the new sets, Multi-Step Rubber Ducky and Multi-Step Things 4 Ducky & Teddy for a fun Christmas card. Multi-Step Ducky was inspired by KSS Forum Member, SuperJen. She was the winner of last June’s forum Giveaway Game and her stamp suggestion was a Rubber Ducky set. I am so glad she did because I have been having so much fun stamping him (or her). 😉

Bucket full of Sunflowers from the Kitchen Sink

Happy KSS Monday!

Today’s project was inspired by a friend.  Before celebrating her 50th birthday she made her first jump skydiving (and with her mom too!!!).  I recall her comment after the jump … “that was one for the bucket list!”

This tall narrow notepad is an official “Bucket List”.  😉

Instead of using daisies (sorry, dark humor), I decided to stamp some cheery and sunny sunflowers. 🙂   The masking for the letters, flowers, and leaves were done using the “clear embossing masking technique” (more info about this technique can be found HERE ).  First I stamped the word “bucket”, then the flowers and leaves followed by the drop shadow for “bucket”.  Next time I think I will apply clear imboss directly to the white cardstock (for white letters), then add the drop shadow … followed by filling in the background behind the letters with leaves making the word “bucket” pop more.

When posting my Giant Red Sunflower Tag Card, I realized the original had slipped through the “blogging cracks” and I never shared it … so here it is. 🙂
