 In this card Connie used Stampin’ Up products. Basic Gray for the card base with the Brick Wall Embossing Folder. Love this folder for masculine cards. Tangelo Twist, Daffodil Delight, Mossy Meadow, Basic Black make up the Classic Stampin inks and other cardstock.  I used my Circle Framelits to cut out the pumpkin.  The Watercolor Wings Stamp set and the Bold Butterfly Framelits are used to make this fun butterfly.

As stampers and card makers, most of us have a great many flower stamps and dies that we love. Hi, Kathy Krug here, and I am excited to be your hostess for this week’s Mod Squad Challenge  “Focal Flower”.  Use either a stamped flower image or a flower die cut or both, but make the flower the focal image.

This week our sponsor is the wonderful stamp company Kitchen Sink Stamps.




These stamps are amazing. Most have a multi-stamp feature that lets you get great detail in your images using several colors. There is real dimension with a 3-D effect! And one of the best features of this stamp company is that there are color recipes for most of the multi-step stamps, so you don't have to guess what colors to use. There are even alternative colors if you don't have the inks that are suggested.


Maria from Kitchen Sink Stamps is a member of our Mod Squad Challenge Facebook Group so feel free to say Hi or ask any questions.
 

THE PRIZE:

$25 GIFT CERTIFICATE to the store. You can pick your own goodies and there are a lot of choices!

This is my sample with the rose buds as the focal image. 




Here are the supplies I used.


Kitchen Sink Stamps 3 Step Heart and Roses  (This set is a real value with  three different sizes of roses, two sizes of leaves and several sentiments).
Gina K Designs Elegant Florals illustrated by Theresa Momber
