Kitchen Sink Stamps Houston, Texas Weekend!

I was so fortunate as to be able to go to the Kitchen Sink Stamps workshop offered in Houston over the weekend of October 8 and 9! As soon as I heard they were going to Houston, I made the hotel reservation, and told hubby to take the weekend as vacation!!!

We used to live in Houston - so it was great to go back to some of our old haunts and revisit the city. I really loved it, and it felt like home... my husband was very happy to leave on Sunday morning and head back to our current home! :) Oh well!!

We were fortunate enough to be able to use some of the newest yet unreleased Kitchen Sink Stamps, as well as meet the 'Maker' of the KSS stamps! After all our email conversations, I was way too excited to meet Maria!!! The rest of her design team was FANTASTIC!!! We were ooh-ing and aaahhh-ing at all our new discoveries... and I know they loved hearing it!!

These are three of the amazing projects they planned for us!

Here's the cowboy hat and gloves set. SO perfect for Texas!

Here we are again using the hat. Makiko designed this adorable bookmark for us - and everything worked fantastic! The hat fit perfectly, and she had inked each one of the pieces for us to stamp on which gave it such a wonderful effect! "Thanks, Makiko!"

Here we're using 2 of the newest stamp sets together - and working with a masking technique. This is actually one of a pair of boots on the stamp set, with bluebonnets in the background. My table partner and I decided to add the butterfly for effect. We were experimenting with ink colors, and different layering techniques.

The best part about receiving the Bluebonnets stamp set, is that nobody knew how crazy I am over bluebonnets!!! I've got pictures here on this blog from our last trip down to Houston showing TONS of bluebonnets in the fields near the roadways! :) :) :)

There is ONE MORE project we did over the 2 days! Lynn designed a 3D gift box that includes the 2 boots. It has some really adorable embellishments. That picture will be coming soon!!!
