New Rubbah in the House!!!

Check it out; I got a new stamp set - my first ever from Kitchen Sink Stamps. It's their 3-step Hibiscus set, I have seen so many fabulous cards made with their stamps so I finally splurged and got a set.

I cannot WAIT to get more of their stamps; I love how they work together. I have to admit "I" need more work with the stamps; I've struggled making the large hibiscus look good, but its a start.

THIS is the card I made:

All 3 flowers were made using 1 color of ink - Rose Romance; I stamped it 3rd, 2nd and 1st generation; I like how they turned out. This card uses the small and medium hibiscus. The leaves are 3-step also and are done in Mellow Moss. I also combined the card with SCS's sketch challenge #181.

The rick rack is actually white velvet - I ran it through the Rose Romance ink pad so it would match perfectly. The "Just Because" comes from the same KSS set; love the sayings in the set too.

I also used another new tool called the Threading Water Punch by Fiskars - it's a punch that does scallops AND holes all at once. Cool, eh? I also used the swiss dots embossing folder on the base card.

Let me know what you think and be sure to check out KSS stamp sets! Thanks for stopping by; hope you're having a great week! Hugs, ~M.

Love your card! You are so fun running that ribbon through your ink pad! You know I don't buy magic mesh anymore? I purchase drywall tape at the hardware store and run it through my ink pad...any color I want instantly!

I heard about this awesome fiskars punch...where did you find it? They got them in at Scrapbook Garden but they went out as quick as they came in and now they are on back order, but I would love to have one!
