KSS 10 Minute Monday - Scattered Inchies

For today's KSS 10 minute challenge, I stamped Kitchen Sink images on three inchies and a KSS sentiment on another. I then matted the inchies and scattered them across my card front. The sentiment inchie was added last and popped up on dimensionals. The outside inchies were hanging off the sides of the card until I whacked them one last time with the papercutter! Should you like to share your card in the Kitchen Sink Gallery, the keyword of the week is 10MC56.

KSS 10 Minute Monday - Another Overlay

Thank you so much for checking in on today's challenge! This week's 10 Minute Card Challenge is another overlay design. I stamped my Kitchen Sink images and sentiments directly on the card front. The overlay is a 3.75 x 5 inch colored panel which I cut a hole in with my heart Nestabilities and then embossed with my Cuttlebug. The final step in this design is to glue the embossed panel over the stamped images.

If you choose to join in the challenge this week, use whatever shape works for you. I am getting ready for Valentine's Day so I chose the heart. The keyword for uploading to the Kitchen Sink Gallery is 10MC55.

New Year's Resolutions

Today begins the second year of 10 Minute Card Challenges at Kitchen Sink Stamps! Can you believe it?

This week I am challenging you to use your 10 minutes and your Kitchen Sink Stamps to share with us some of your New Year's Resolutions. The keyword for those adding their project to the Kitchen Sink Gallery is 10MC53.

I have chosen to create some refrigerator magnets to help me keep my resolutions front and center each time I open the refrigerator. I plan to make better choices about what I eat as well as get more active with my walking and exercising. I got a Wii and Wii Fit Plus from Santa so I can have a little fun as I try to keep on track with my resolutions.

 I used my computer to print my resolutions and my circle Nestabilities to cut out my layers. A strip magnet was attached to the back of each resolution.
