KSS 10 Minute Card - Lucky Stamper Inspired

One of the blogs I make sure to visit daily belongs to Kathy Braun, a fellow Texas stamper. On Fridays she features her one layer designs and that is where I fell in love with this delightful layout. You can see her beautiful card on her blog Lucky Stamper. With her permission, I am using her layout for Kitchen Sink Stamps 10 Minute Card Challenge #34. Thanks, Kathy, for your awesome inspiration! Be sure to visit Kathy's blog, Lucky Stamper, and see the beautiful things she creates!!

As you can see, the layout uses a corner punch to add detailing to the right hand corners of the card. A strip of colored paper is added behind the punched corners.

KSS 10 Minute Card Challenge #32 - Andy Warhol Inspired

Before I get to this week's 10 Minute Card Challenge, I wanted to share a card I created for one of the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges sponsored by the Dirty Girls at Splitcoaststampers this past week. This particular challenge required that you create a one layer card.  Well, nothing is more perfect for one layer cards than the new Seed Packet recently released by Kitchen Sink Stamps.With a little masking and any of the fruit, vegetable, or flower sets by KSS, you can end up with a delightful one layer creation.

As you can see, I mixed Multi Step Berries with the Seed Packet set for my design. Fun, huh?

Kitchen Sink Stamps 10 Minute Card Challenge #31

I hope you are ready for some more 10 minute fun. This week's design involves stamping your Kitchen Sink images around a circle sentiment tag.

I started each card by sticking a circle I had cut from a Post-It note to the center of the card front. I then stamped my Kitchen Sink images all the way around the mask being sure that each image started on the sticky note as I worked my way around the circle. I then removed the mask and attached the sentiment tag which I had matted in black.
