Everything... including the Kitchen Sink Stamps!


On Tuesday morning this past week, I was doing my usual... check the email, check in on my Buckeye Babes on SCS, see what the Color Challenge is, read the newspaper headlines, and check SU! Stampers' Showcase (where they never showcase my cards anymore!) And while I'm zipping around SCS, I notice this new banner ad for a company called Kitchen Sink Stamps! (http://www.kitchensinkstamps.com/)
Hmmm... I'm intrigued! I check out the site... cute stamps and they're clear... my new favorite thing lately. Oooh, and they take Paypal! Cool! I can use my Buyer Credit! So I decided to order a few sets. Since then I have received a very nice email from Maria, who is the owner of this great new stamp company, and she informed me that I had the great luck of being her very first customer! Gold star for me! And, since she's so effecient, I believe that other than herself and maybe some friends and family, I may be the only other person in the world to personally have her stamps in my possession because they arrived today! So anyway, here is my first creation using the 3-Step Daisy set! It's very detailed, and they turn out gorgeous images, I think! Please tell me what you think! :)
Stamps: Kitchen Sink Stamps 3-Step Daisy
Cardstock: Bazzill; Stampin' Up Very Vanilla; My Mind's Eye Kaleidoscope "Memories" Dots
Ink: Colorbox Yellow Citrus, Rose Coral, Warm Red, Moss Green; Versamagic Spanish Olive; Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip, Always Artichoke, Ruby Red
Accessories: color spritzer tool (used with the Always Artichoke marker to add a little "shading"); gold cord; orange organdy ribbon; corner rounder (for scallops); sponge (with a little Always Artichoke ink around the edges of the flowered piece, and Ruby Red ink around the thank you); foam squares

Tammy, dear, this is such a fabulous card! As I said on SCS, Maria would be wise to look no further than you to start her design team! You do such fabulous work...and I was so happy to see your link to this card at SCS since I just don't make it to the gallery these days. Gorgeous, gorgeous, GORGEOUS!

Oh, and if I had a blog, you would DEFINITELY be on my list of favorite blogs, lol!

Hugs,
