Biggest Fan

Good morning!  We had such a great weekend and it looks like that might continue - aaaahhhh Summer in Maine! :)   It's Kitchen Sink Stamps Monday and I'm pretty happy about my project today, it's very different from most of my other KSS cards!  I was leafing through the latest issue of Paper Crafts Magazine and was inspired by the fan card on the cover.  Here's what I did with that inspiration:

I started with Pretty Tear Drops from Kitchen Sink Stamps (which by the way is currently on sale!) and used a solid petal to make my fan blades.  The double circle image is from Happy Birthday Cupcake, also KSS (and also on sale!).  As I set out looking for a sentiment I was so tickled to find this one in 3 Step Baseball (would you believe, also on sale?!) - it couldn't have been more perfect!!

I kept the whole card simple, just using a flat button for the center and adding a red heart from Multi-Step Ribbons With a Cause.  It just goes to show you how differently you can use your stamps if you just use a little imagination!  Now I'm wondering what other fun things I can make!

I have to tell you my husband commented that he liked the "benzine rings" on my background paper.  LOL!! Yes, honey but we papercrafters call them hexagons and they are oh so in style now! :)

Please visit the other KSS Crew members and enjoy a wonderful Monday!
