Kittie Kit Release & Blog Stroll

The Stroll starts at the Rubbernecker Stamps Blog where you will find the rules on how to win one of the sets being released today or even possibly the GRAND PRIZE. If you haven’t started at the Rubbernecker Stamps Blog, you should go there now in order to not miss anything.  Winners will be drawn on Friday, 12:00 Noon.

Here is my phrase clue for the GRAND PRIZE: Rubbernecker

The Blog Stroll continues at Sherry’s Blog where you will find the next phrase clue.

Kittie Kits Release_SaK

Today’s card features the 2 new Kittie Kits, Farm Scene #8 & Chicken Coop #7.  I used the Master #2 set for the gravel.  The crackle paint background was created by painting the cardstock with Ceramcoat crackle medium and when almost dry, coating the layer with Sandstone acrylic paint.  the Images were masked and misted with distress reinkers and then color was sponged on while the layer was still wet.  The sentiment is an SEI rub on.

The barn doors were stamped and layered on the top of the barn using a gate fold opening.  

Prism Cardstock: Cream, Sunflowers Dark, Desert Coral Dark, Herbal Garden Dark.

Ink:  Stazon Jet Black, Distress Pads & Reinkers/Scattered Straw, Fired Brick, Pine Needles, Vintage Photo

Ribbon, Flocked Brads, SEI Rub On, Crackle Medium, Acrylic Paint, sewing machine.

  56. Hi,
    phentermine for sale
    Although if the dryness continues for more than 2 weeks, it?s important to consult the doctor and dentist since there is a higher chance that dental diseases and fungal infection may occur.

    Those with history of drug abuse have higher chances of developing a dependence on appetite suppressants.

    Operation of machineries and driving should be avoided for the medicine causes dizziness and accidents are more likely to occur.
