Gold at the end of the Rainbow


Happy Monday!

Have another “Pot of Gold at the end of the Rainbow” card to share. This one took its inspiration from Splitcoast Sketch Challenge SC581.

I didn’t have any pattern papers with a St. Patrick’s Day theme, so I created my own using Plaid Plus and Multi-Step Paint Splatters

Pot-of-Gold by Kitchen Sink Stamps

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!

Check in with the KS Crew and see what inspiration they have cooked up for you.

A Country Christmas Card

 You can never start too early to start making Christmas cards … I really should probably start in January! 😉

The card below was from Sneak Peek #3 – to show KSS’ new sentiment set, Greeting from the Woods. It was my hope that this set would serve as a multi-season set … not just summer with the Cabin set, but for the Holidays too. 🙂

Today’s mini scrapbook pages (6″x6″) are not new, but are very dear to my heart, so I must show them again on this special day that pays tribute to those in service!

These  2 pages are of my GrandFather, who served in the Army in WWI. They were made for a small family album I started. The original post can be seen HERE  for a challenge to “Stamp Out Alzheimer’s”.

Happy CR Friday!

It’s time for another batch of color recipes from the kitchen, this time for the set Multi Step Kittens & Pup.


I hope you aren’t getting tired of seeing samples of stamping on fabric… but as you might guess, I have been having fun… not to mention making some gifts! This tea towel was made for a dear friend’s birthday. She was two Springer Spaniels of her own. One of them is the older brother to our pup. So, you would guess right, she LOVED the gift! 🙂

I am just about finished with a tutorial for how I stamped the plaid on the towel, but must run off to a school product … the Father’s Follies! I will be back with the tutorial… and maybe a review of the production. 😉

In the mean time, the color recipe for this Kittens & Pup set can be found HERE. Both Memento & Palette CR’s are included. 🙂

Washing instructions can be found HERE.
