10 Minutes and 10 Minutes More

It has been well over two years now that I have been posting a 10 minute Kitchen Sink design with 4 samples every single Monday. Simple and quick cards are my very favorite cards to create, but sometimes I like going a little farther and adding a frill or two when I am creating for a very special occasion. So with Maria's permission, beginning today the Monday 10 Minute Design with become the 10 Minutes and 10 Minutes More.

With Mother's Day coming up on Sunday, I have chosen it as the theme for this week's cards.

Both cards are created with 3 Step Hearts & Roses and Whole Family by Kitchen Sink Stamps. The papers used included Pure Luxury White by Gina K. Designs, Elegant Eggplant by Stampin' Up, and eva by BasicGrey.

Color Recipe for the Roses:

Layer 3 SU Elegant Eggplant stamped off once, Layer 2 Memento Lulu Lavender, Layer 1 Memento Lulu Lavender stamped off once, and Layer 4 SU Elegant Eggplant

Color Recipe for the Stem and Leaves:

Layer 1 SU Kiwi Kiss, Layer 2 SU Kiwi Kiss, Layer 3 Memento Olive Grove stamped off once

10 Minute Card

10 Minutes+ 10 Minutes More Card

With my extra 10 minutes I added a Martha Stewart edge punched in two colors, an addition rose, more crystals, and a grosgrain bow. I hope you like them.

I wonder what the girls in the Kitchen were up to this week? Let's find out!!

  10. LOVE the purple/lavender color! Your "10 minute cards" rival any card that someone spends hours creating! Lovely job!!!

  11. Your cards are beautiful Lynn. Love how you stepped up the 10 minute card by adding some additional elements. I'm really liking the different shades of purple in your flowers.
