Use promo code THANKSLYNN at checkout in the Kitchen Sink Store to receive a 35% discount on all purchases. Free shipping with orders totaling $65.

For today's 10 minute tags I used my Spellbinders' Lacy Squares cut from Pure Luxury Paper by Gina K. Designs. The heavy weight of this card stock holds up well for these tie-on tags. I then added some of my favorite holiday images from Kitchen Sink Stamps along with names using the Mix It Up alphabet. Last I attached a pretty fiber or ribbon for tying the tags to my gifts. The tags are 3.25 inches square.

10 Minute Christmas Postcards

I don't know if you have seen these post card sized coasters, but they sure are fun to stamp and mail. They come 6 to a package and sell for $1.95 in the Kitchen Sink Store. The 45 cents it takes to mail it costs more than the card. How great is that!!!

 For this week's 10 minute design I stamped four Christmas post cards.


Stamps: Multi Step Christmas Lights by Kitchen Sink Stamps
Paper: Post Card Coaster
Inks: Memento Love Letter, Bahama Blue, Dandelion,

I hand cut the stamp to make the socket and used a Copic marker to draw the wire.

KSS Ten Minute Monday - Faux Layers

I am back this week with another one layer Kitchen Sink Stamps card. The faux layers on this design were created by inking up my long acrylic block with three rows of colors, misting it with water, and then stamping it on the card front. This is such a fun and fast way to add some unique blocks of color to any card. It took no time at all, but I did let the cards dry for about 30 minutes before I added the black border lines with my Sharpie, masked the area, and stamped the Kitchen Sink images.
