It's Monday--time for another Kitchen Sink Stamps challenge. This week's challenge for the Kitchen Sink Crew was posed by Angela. She provided a photo of a kitchen with bright, earthy colors for us to use as inspiration for our projects. Here's my interpretation.
I was drawn to the colors in the photo right away. I realized that they were similar to the colors in the SEI Black Orchid paper pad I had, so I pulled that out to start my project. I found this striped piece that included the teal blue, green, rust, and black from the photo. I also pulled out some of the beautiful wide satin teal ribbon from KSS--it was a perfect match for this color combo.
I used inks that matched the paper to create this butterfly using a bunch of different images from the Pretty Tear Drop stamp set. This set has so many possibilities!
To pick up the circle motif from the pegboard in the inspiration photo, I used a few Dew Drops to embellish the butterfly and to embellish the patterned paper, too. I also added a row of paper piercing along the bottom of the teal panel on the cardfront.
For more KSS inspiration, stop by the rest of the crew's blogs:

And, here's another Kitchen Sink Stamps pretty. I made this using this week's sketch at Page Plans. It's a small 4 1/4" square card, but the bright colors really make a big statement. I based the colors on the striped patterned paper I used as a panel on the cardfront.
The large circle at the center of the card is stamped with one of the ovals from the Playful Ovals set. I used the 1/2 Pint Playful Alphabet to stamp "hi!" in a bold color so it would stand out. I layered a coordinating pair of paper flowers and joined them with a sparkly brad, then attached them to one of the ends of the oval with a glue dot. I used the one of the new pinking circles dies from Nestabilities to create a mat for the circle.
