Happy Kitchen Sink Stamps Monday! Thanks to those who played along with last weeks Kitchen Sink Stamps Contest! Can you believe no one correctly matched the designers to the stamp sets?
The following 7 people are finalists in the contest and have one more chance at guessing correctly:
If your name appears above, head back to this forum post and enter your new guesses by Wednesday, June 19th, midnight PDT. In my post last week, I mentioned that I did not show a card made with the set I requested, I also mentioned that two people requested the same images for a set. What I didn't tell you is that the one set was then broken down into two separate sets, something even I didn't know. I didn't show a sample of that set either last week. One more easy hint, if you know where KSS stamps are located, then it should be easy for you to guess Maria's set.
I had a card prepared for my post today, unfortunately I am unable to share it with you, as I cannot pick up WIFI on my laptop and retrieve my saved photo, (I'm blogging from my iPad), so I'll be back next week with some new cards! In the meantime, here's a look back a KSS card previously posted on my blog.

This month North Coast Creations is releasing 3 beautiful Silhouette stamp sets - Find Beauty, Heaven's Masterpiece and Something Marvelous. Continue reading below to find out how you can win one of two North Coast Creations $10 Gift Certificates good towards the purchase of NCC Stamps.
I have two cards to share with you today using this months release. For this first card, I used the silhouette flowers and Get Well Soon text from North Coast Creations Heaven's Masterpiece stamp set. The small butterfly is from Our Daily Bread Designs Stamped by Butterfly Mini.
The silhouette flowers were stamped in Saffron on White card stock; the text in Black Archival, then die cut/embossed with Spellbinders Petite Oval Dies, and layered on a Black Oval. All pattern paper is from the Authentique Renew Collection, the border is from Our Daily Bread Designs Antique Labels and Border Die
, cut from Black card stock. To embellish I added Black Seam Binding tied in a Double Bow using Becca's Peg Bow Maker
, Black Pearls from Zva Creative
, and the butterfly from ODBD's Hand Stamped Butterfly Mini.

For my next card I created a Mixed Media card using the silhouette stamp from North Coast Creations
Find Beauty, and the text from Heaven's Masterpiece.
I started out by creating the background with Acrylic Paints, a Prima Stencil and the Gelli Arts Plate
. Once the background was dry, I black embossed the flowers and text, then die cut the text from the panel using Spellbinders Petite Oval Dies, layering the text onto a Black Oval.
