Hello, Judy Woodland here.  It has been quite some time since I have hosted a Mod Squad Challenge Blog and I'm so glad to be back!!! The challenge this week is to take a stamp you would normally use for one purpose, and use it for another. For example, take a winter stamp like a snowflake, and use it to make a summer card, with the snowflake as flowers. Or use a tiny flower stamp to make a letter or flourish. Anything you like!!

This week our sponsor is the wonderful stamp company Kitchen Sink Stamps. Kitchen Sink Stamps offers us a discount. CODE: ModSquad

These stamps are amazing. Most have a multi-stamp feature that lets you get great detail in your images using several colors. There is real dimension with a 3-D effect! And one of the best features of this stamp company is that there are color recipes for most of the multi-step stamps, so you don't have to guess what colors to use. There are even alternative colors if you don't have the inks that are suggested.

Maria from Kitchen Sink Stamps is a member of our Mod Squad Challenge Facebook Group so feel free to say Hi or ask any questions.


$25 GIFT CERTIFICATE to the store. 
You can pick your own goodies and there are a lot of choices!

Here is my sample:

I thought it would be fun to use the pansy, which grows in the summer, as a Christmas flower. I used a gorgeous stamp set from Kitchen Sink Stamps called 3-Step Pansy. Each image has multiple stamps to get this awesome 3-D effect, and it's super easy to line each stamp up with the last one.
