KSS Monday - Lynn's Crew Challenge

Good morning!! I hope you all had a great weekend!! Our Kitchen Sink Stamps Crew Challenge today comes from the delightful and very talented Lynn! Here are the details:

Refrigerator Magnet - Use your computer to generate a favorite quote, witty saying, or scripture and then use your Kitchen Sink Stamps to turn it into a wonderful bit of refrigerator art! Just to keep it interesting, the size should be no larger than 4" x 4" but can be any shape you choose as long as it fits into a 4 x 4 space on your refrigerator.

Fun, huh?!! As I thought about what quote to use, this verse kept popping into my head. Sometimes we get caught up in praying for "God's will" when we really just mean "can you do it my way please?" I know this has happened to me many times! We need to remember that God knows the end - the why, the when, the how - everything! And, most importantly, His way is best!

First I formatted the verse on my computer and printed it out (the font is a dark brown) on Papertrey Ink Linen Vellum (which is so nice for this project since it is not quite as transparent as regular vellum). Then I used a Nestabilities die to cut it out. I sponged a bit around the edges with Vintage Violet.

For the background, I used a 4 x 4 coaster for durabiliity and a piece of Vanilla cardstock cut to size to stamp on. I used my "go to" floral set - 3 Step Hydrangeas to stamp a background. No new color combos, I just used 3 of my favorites from here and here. Once I had everything layered, as a last step I stamped a little butterfly that is in the 3 Step Hydrangeas set, cut it out and popped it up on the bottom. A few pieces of magnetic adhesive strips on the back finished up the project. I love how it came out!

Why don't you take the challenge and play along! See what you can come up with and add your link to the KSS Group on Paper Craft Planet! If you'd like to use my verse, leave me a comment (with your email!) and I will email you the pdf!
