A Card and Happy (e)Mail!

Good afternoon!! I made a quick card this morning that I want to share with you. As I said a few days ago I received my new Kitchen Sink Stamps. I have such a great project in the works for you all . . . a tutorial and maybe even a treat . . . but that's all a few days away so until then I decided to give yesterday's SCS Color Challenge a try! The colors to use were Soft Sky, Blue Bayou and Real Red.


I've told you all before I am a slow stamper but I has able to get this card made up in about 30 minutes which must be some kind of record for me - LOL! Anyway, I used Love & Lucky for the background heart - there are 3 sizes of hearts in the set as well as lots of overlays for the 2 step effect (I didn't use any patterns for this card). The center image is done with my Nestabilities (I used rectangles because I don't have the squares yet, and double cut them to make them square). The stamp in the center is a little thank you stamp that Maria includes with new KSS orders - I believe there is a different stamp each quarter. This stamp was sent to people who pre-ordered the new sets (and I, of course not able to limit myself to my one dt set, pre-ordered a couple more). Just a nice little perk of ordering your Kitchen Sink Stamps, isn't Maria sweet?!

Ok, so now for my news . . . I was delighted (understatement) to receive an email last night that one of my KSS cards was accepted for publication in their special issue Holiday Cards & More due out this fall!!! I know several other people who had projects accepted so it will tons of fun to have my card included with so many of my "virtual" friends!! Thanks for letting me share everyone!

Come back tomorrow for another sneak peek of the next Paper Pretties release!

Cardstock: Soft Sky, Blue Bayou, Shimmery White, Stamps: Love & Luck, Inks: Soft Sky, Pearlescent Poppy, Accessories: Blue Bayou ribbon, Dimensionals, Swarovski crystals, Nestabilities, White Brads
