Ring the Bells--It's Time for Kitchen Sink Monday

It's time for another visit to the kitchen to see what the Kitchen Sink Crew has cooked up using their Kitchen Sink Stamps. This week, I made a shadow box card using the 3 Step Bells set.

These cards are so easy to make! Since I first saw the preview of these images, I thought the bells would look fantastic framed in the shadow box. I used the same "recipe" for stamping the bell images as I used last week, but this time, used the large bell images instead of the jingle bell ones. They're stamped on white paper and matted on a slightly larger red circle. The bells are centered in real life--my photography is just lousy here--LOL!

The inside of the shadow box is lined with sparkly blue paper that I picked up at Target. This paper is relatively inexpensive and a pretty nice quality--not as thick/heavy as the shimmery cardstocks from SU! and Papertrey Ink, but still good for crafting projects, at least in my opinion.

I stamped the peace & joy sentiment in red on a piece of white cardstock and matted it on a red scalloped circle. I attached a piece of silvery ribbon behind it, then attached it to the front of the shadow box.

You can check out what the other Kitchen Sink Crew members are up to by stopping by their blogs today. You'll find great KSS projects featured everywhere!
