Winter Theme

Hello, this is Joyce and this week I will be your Host and Designer.  We hope you will play along! Do you have winter stamps you haven’t gotten to use this year? I know I sure do and didn’t want to wait another year to use them. This week I am featuring Kitchensink Stamps Multi Step Winter Cardinals.


Winter Theme The challenge this week is to make a Winter themed card. Snow, pine trees, bare trees. As long as it is CLEARLY WINTER!! We have far to many entries not following the theme so I will delete non qualifying entries.


Our specialized clear multi-step stamps give a beautiful, three-dimensional looking stamped image that is perfect for card making, scrapbooking and other crafts. We design our stamp sets to be versatile so it is easy to mix and match multiple sets together to unlock your full artistic creativity

Kitchen Sink Stamps offers us a discount CODE: MODSQUAD 2018

Joyce’s Card


I used mostly Gina K ink to stamp the various layers.  I stamped the cardinal with Gina K Lipstick, Cranberry Tart and Memento Love Letters. The branches was all Gina K: Jelly Bean, Grass Green, Christmas Pine ans Warn Cocoa. I used the Multi Step Winter Cardinals  from Kitchen Sink Stamps and the sentiment was from a Gina K Designs set. called Wetlands

 Thanks so much for stopping by!

Thanks to all who played along this week. Sadly we did have to delete some of the entries, as they did not meet the criteria for the challenge. The challenge was to have a HEART be the FOCAL of the project. That means if you had a cute little critter on your card, but included a heart somewhere, you did not met the criteria. A heart must be the focal, not the critter. But…..all the entries were fantastic, even the ones we deleted. It was difficult to pick the winners.
