Well...the power of stamps, really! 'Cause these stamps ain't made of rubber!
You know how low my sales resistance is right now! I got sucked into ordered from yet another company! The banner was right there on Splitcoast and I just had to click on it! The stamps are a little pricey, but so cute! The psychic resonance just oozed out of the screen! I dithered, I really did! But I kept clicking on it and looking. I still had a tiny bit of money left from my last Ebay sale, so finally I bit. The stamps are from Kitchen Sink Stamps, a new company started by someone from Splitcoaststampers, Maria Colosimo.
The first card I did using a sketch from Julee at Poetic Artistry for Mojo Monday (#4)
Ingredients: Stamps - Kitchen Sink Stamps Pretty Petals; Paper - Whisper White, Tempting Turquoise, Cool Caribbean, Pumpkin Pie, Apricol Appeal; Ink - Tempting Turquoise, Cool Caribbean, Pumpkin Pie, Apricol Appeal, Certainly Celery, Old Olive; Other - Celery dotted organdy (Michael's), daisy punch (SU! retired), 3/4" circle punch, round tab punch, stampin' sponge wedges.
Isn't it GOJUS!!! (YILM!)
For the second card, I decided my Cuttlebug was sadly neglected, so I went ahead and pulled out all the stops:
Ingredients: Stamps - Kitchen Sink Stamps Thanks with Style; Paper - Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, Basic Black, Regal Rose; Ink - Regal Rose, Pallete Noir, Pretty in Pink; Other - Cuttlebug Divine Swirls & Heart Blocks
Embossing folders, black dotted organdy (Michael's), brads - Queen
& Co., Diamond Dots (Stampendous), dimensionals.
I decided that the perfect touch for the letter was a Diamond Dot from Stampendous...I scrabbled around in my drawer of Forgotten Embellishments and found a few left from many years ago. It was so perfect that I wondered if they were still being made and they are! You can get them from addictedtoscrapbooking.com among other places...just google "Stampendous Diamond Dots" and you should get plenty of sites that sell them.
I also used some cute brads from the stash from Queen & Co. that were just the perfect touch, I thought. And yes, I think it's GOJUS!!!! (YILM!)
And you'll be happy to know I did end up finding the chocolate! It was on the shelf in the plastic box where I keep cassette tapes; considering I rarely listen to cassettes any more, it's not that surprising that I didn't see it there...question is, why did I put it there to begin with?!?!? The mysteries of the mind.....
