Today some goodies I bought on line arrived in the mail!  I used some of my Christmas gift money to order a 3 new sets of stamps from Kitchen Sink Stamps.  I love them!  For those who don't know what they are, you are in for a treat!  They are stamps that you ink in layers.  The finished effect is awesome!  Here is one of the sets called "Hearts and Roses" that I am using to make some of my Valentine's cards.  I embossed plain white card stock using  my Cuddlebug and then applied the layers of different color inks in layers.  What a stunning result!

Now I have to trim up the stamped pieces and apply them to the card base.
Nice, fun and easy.  I am so anxious to use the other sets!

Here are some of the color combos that I have experimented with:


  1. Such chic cards, Joanne. I love embossing on matt white card, it looks so elegant and the addition of those beautiful roses is just stunning! xx

  2. I love these Joanne. Absolutely gorgeous. First of all the embossed base is really just so elegant and then how you use those stamps is stunning actually!
    Um...may have to invest in these stamps!

  3. GORGEOUS cards!!! i love that rose...gotta go shop!!! =)

  4. Thank you so much for sharing these gorgeous Valentines in the Kitchen Sink Gallery, Joanne! I was so excited when I found them there today! This is the set that led me to Kitchen Sink Stamps and is still one of my favorites!
