Kitchen Sink Stamps Release Day!

Yahoo!!  The day we've waited for has finally arrived and today Kitchen Sink Stamps is releasing 5 new stamp sets! Not only are these sets fabulous as always, but they are extra special because they were specially made for us, the KSS Crew!  Maria wanted to do something special for us so she let us request a stamp set.  So how well do you think you know the KSS Crew?  You'll have a chance to guess which sets were made for which Crew member and possibly win a prize!  I'll give you the details at the end of the post - you'll want to be fast with your guesses!

Also, for today only, you have the opportunity to order these new sets (and anything else in the KSS store) with 15% off by clicking this link June New Stamps 15%-Julie or using coupon code JULIE15 when you check out!

But first, here is a list of the sets:

Palm Trees
Sail Boats
Grizzly Bear Wishes

You can find these new sets in the What's New section of the KSS store.  Two of the sets, Lighthouses and Sail Boats are pre-orders as they will be arriving any day (I haven't even gotten mine yet!). Now, on to my cards, I have 2 for your today.

Grizzly Bear Wishes is a fun set to play with.  The face of the bear is so neat looking and the set has lots of unique sentiments and accessories to "dress" your bear with.  I opted to keep him plain and use the sentiment to convey my card's purpose.  I think you'll get it! *wink*

My second card uses Guitar - a totally fun set with sentiment in fonts that match many of KSS's other western-themed stamps.  As I played around with the set, I decided to go a bit non-traditional and had fun with color!

A purple guitar? Yup, it's just seemed like a fun choice. But wouldn't it be just as fun in blue, or green or pink?!  I thought this would make a great card for a teenager - maybe a graduation or birthday card.  The splatters were made using small amounts of watered down paint blown from the end of a straw - I love how they splatted!

Ok, now it's time to visit the rest of the KSS Crew.  Once you've made the rounds and seen all the peeks, run over to the KSS Forum and play our Giveaway Guessing Game!!

Here are the details:
