New Stamps in the Kitchen!

I'm back with a promised card from my new Kitchen Sink Stamps set called Love & Lucky! This set is so cute! Similar to Playful Christmas (remember all the tree cards I did?) only with a Valentine's & St. Patty's Day theme. Is there anyone else out there that almost has a hard time breaking out their new stamps?? These clear stamps are so pretty and shiney when they are new, and the KSS stamps look so nice with the color printed acetate layer that I find myself just wanting to look at them for a while! LOL!

For any SU! demos out there, I was totally inspired by the cover of this month's Stampin' Success that arrived today . . . the scalloped card(?) on the cover gave me the idea for this card.
This card also qualifies for Colleen's Throwdown Thursday - Bling Baby! I seem to use it a lot I know, but this time Colleen made me do it! :) It's just one single, solitary crystal though . . .just a touch!

When I stamped the center image I used a technique that I've done a few times over the last week, shadow stamping (I'm not sure what the technical term is). I stamped the image first with Dew Drops Pixie Pink color and then stamped the image again with Close to Cocoa ink, just a little to the side to create a shadow effect. I have to say this is another card that does look better IRL - the colors are pretty and the shimmer cardstock gives it a nice look.

Saturday will be my one year Blogaversary! I can't believe it's been one year since I decided to start a blog just to keep in better touch with friends and customers. It has evolved over this year and so has my stamping! To celebrate, I will be back on Saturday with some Jules Jewels. Until then, have a great night! :)

Cardstock: Close to Cocoa, Shimmery White, Pink Bazzill (not sure of the color), Stamps: Love & Lucky (Kitchen Sink Stamps), Inks: Close to Cocoa, Pixie Pink Dewdrop, Accessories: Nestabilities, Paper Piercer, Swarovski crystal, white gel pen
