Nuts about KSS

Another stamp company that I really admire is Kitchen Sink Stamps. I was lucky enough to win a gift card from them a few months ago. But being indecisive, I held on to it.  Well, a few days ago, I placed my order. Saturday, my new stamps were here!  (Of course, KSS didn't include extra time in that padded envelope! haha)

Here is my first card with Mr. Squirrel!  (Yes, I hesitated to get this squirrel b/c I have the MFP squirrel. But the new KSS set has acorns and leaves.  Okay..yes. So does MFP. Too many stamps. Not enough time.  I just LOVE these photographic images!)


I used today's CAS Sketch on SCS. But I flipped it so the ribbons fit better.  The inside is also decorated. But it is grey here in MI and close to dinner time, that I didn't want to try to get a good shot of the inside.  I used Paper Temptress Papers.  Great textures bring such interest to handmade cards.  Especially CAS cards!   (Bummer that I missed this month's KSS challenge!)
Oh...the ink colors I used, for future reference:  off stamped Caramel, Rust, Cocoa.

Cute squirrel, no wonder you caved-in and bought it. Great choice.

KSS does have beautiful stuff...I've always wanted to try their flowers. Can't wait to see what else you got!

I am going nuts about all the great cards everyone is making using the great designs from Kitchen Sink Stamps and yours is another fine example Dawn. I love this cute squirrel.

Wow! Look how realistic that squirrel is. Love how you kept it a CAS style so he could really stand out and be admired. :) Looking forward to more KSS cards from you....
