Lily of the Valley

Happy Monday to you!  I'm sure you are all gearing up for this final full week before Christmas and believe me I have tons yet to do!!  Why do I always seem to put things off until the last minute?  We were able to get our annual Christmas picture of the children done this weekend and I think it turned out pretty cute!  It sure is difficult to get 5 children all looking decent and at the camera at the same time - lol!

Ok, so today is Kitchen Sink Stamps Monday and I took a break from the holiday-themed cards to give you another look at the newest KSS set, A Year of Thanks II.  Remember, this set comes with 12 of the KSS thank-you stamps as well as a multi-step Lily of the Valley set which is so pretty!  Maria put together a great PDF Color Recipe for the Lily of the Valleys using different ink companies for each recipe.  I combined them a bit to come up with a color combo I liked for today.  Here's how I stamped mine:

Step 5:  Olympia Green (Versafine)
Step 4:  Landscape (Palette)
Step 3:  Bamboo Leaves (Memento)
Step 2:  Chartreuse (Palette)
Step 1:  Summer Sky (Memento)  - I know, this seems strange, but trust me (or really Maria) it works!

The sketch was taken from a card in Paper Crafts new book, A Card A Day (I think it was Teri Anderson's).  If you're looking for a great gift for your stamping friends this book would be a wonderful choice!! It's beautifully done - the photographs are so pretty and it's packed with inspiration!  I have several cards in there too! :)

I stamped and cut out one set of the Lilies and added them in front with pop dots at the top for some dimension.
