The Crew Challenge Returns!

Happy Monday and Happy Labor Day to all my US friends!  We've got a beautiful, fun day ahead so let's get right to it today!  It's Kitchen Sink Stamps Monday and we are celebrating the return of the KSS Crew Challenge!!  After a break for the summer it's fun to get back into some fun challenges WITH a chance for you to win a fabulous prize just for stamping along!  See all the rules and details on the KSS blog.

Today's challenge is from Connie:

Ushering in Fall...Make a card inspired by the fall...colors, leaves, back to school anything you can think of when you think of the "Fall"

I pulled out the beautiful Multi-Step Harvest set and got stamping my basket and apples.  Its just the beginning of apple season here and I just love it!!  I also used Multi-Step Pumpkins which is a must have at this time of year!!  I stamped the basket with colors that give it an appearance of age - not a brand new brown basket, but a weathered, grayish wooden basket!  Tak Here are my ink recipes:

Apples:  Step 4 - Scarlett Jewel (Papertrey Ink), Step 3 - Barn Door (Ranger), Step 2 Ladybug Red (Memento), Step 1 - Pear Tart (stamped off) (Memento)

Basket:  Step 3- Bordering Blue (SU!), Step 2 - London Fog (Memento), Step 1 - Sahara Sand (stamped off (SU!), Step 4 - Weathered Wood (2 times) (Ranger)

Pumpkin:  Step 3 - Tangelo, Step 2 - Tangelo (stamped off), Step 1 - Cantelope, Step 4 - Potter's Clay (stamped off - 2 x), Step 5 - Potter's Clay (all Memento)

I used the i{heart}2stamp Sketch For You To Try which I haven't done in forever - the sketch was perfect!!  Give it a try! :)

Now Maria has a fun little contest going on - a bit of a scavenger hunt really.  A few of us are helping her out today by giving clues - check out all the details on Maria's blog.  My clue is . . . Clue #3: It brings attention to a worthy cause.  Good luck! :)

Take a minute to visit the rest of the Crew also - there are some more clues out there! Have a great day my friends!
