Kitchen Sink Monday and Treasure Hunt


Paper Temptress and Kitchen Sink Stamps are partnering up for a St. Patty's Day celebration (we have hidden a pot of gold!) Be sure to visit PaperTemptress' Community blog to find out where to go to get the first piece of the puzzle (which is a phrase). Once you have all of the pieces of the puzzle you can enter to win Kitchen Sink Stamps newly released Multi-Step Shamrocks and Clover, 1 each of 2 inks - Memento Cottage Ivy & Pear Tart and St. Patty's KSS Green Package which is the stamps and paper from Paper Temptress that are spotlighted in the treasure hunt! A lot of fun and a giveaway so celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with us (make sure to bring green paper!)
For more inspiration using Kitchen Sink Stamps Multi-Step Shamrocks and Clover set, along with the KSS St. Patty's Day Green Paper Package from Paper Temptress be sure to visit the other KSS designers blogs (linked below). While I don't have a part of phrase, they just might!
For my card, I chose to use this shamrock from the A Year of Thanks II set and a sentiment from Ready 4 Any Holiday along with the packaged papers from Paper Temptress. My shamrock is stamped on Blanc Sparkle white paper in Versamagic Pearlescent Ivy ink. The dark green cardstock I used is the Emeraude Sparkle and the lighter green is Spring Larch Glimmer. The gold cardstock (which looks pretty cool with that embossing, I think!) is Gold Pearl Linen, and the card base is Heavenly White. The green and gold papers are so lovely and shimmery... I hope you're able to see it in the photo! I loosely used Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday sketch for my layout.

Julie, Lynn, Angela, Makiko, Connie, Lisa and Maria have wonderful samples for you to see on their blogs too, and some of them are sure to have a part of that lucky phrase you're looking for!

Thanks for stopping by today!
