Holiday Wishes

Good Monday morning everyone! It's Kitchen Sink Stamps Monday again, something I look forward to each week! As I was searching around for inspiration yesterday I decided to check out the Featured Stamper Challenge on Splitcoaststampers and play along.  This week's Featured Stamper JBgreendawn's gallery has lots of great cards to case, but I chose this one for it's obvious great CAS design.

My card uses 2 different Kitchen Sink Stamps sets, 3 Step Holly & Mistletoe and Multi-Step Gift.

Instead of using a label background stamp (which I don't have) I die cut my Nestabilities shape out of Masking Paper (you can find that in the KSS Store also!!) and then used the negative space as a mask where I wanted the stamping - make sense? Let me know if you'd like a picture of what I'm trying to describe!  Once I had my negative mask, I used 3 Step Holly & Mistletoe to stamp repeatedly inside the area.  I also added a bit of sponging where there was no stamping just to define the area clearly.

My Holly recipe was:
Step 3 - (Handsome Hunter) SU!, Step 2 - (Cottage Ivy) Memento, Step 1 - (Bamboo Leaves) Memento

Step 3 - (Cherry Cobbler) SU!, Step 2 - (Red) Ranger, Step 1 - (Lady Bug Red) Memento

The center package image from Multi-Step Gift was stamped and then cut out and popped on the kraft circle. I love this layout - it's very elegant!

Thank you for stopping in today! Don't forget to visit the rest of the KSS Crew today!
