10 Minutes and 10 Minutes More #143 -- Autumn Blessings

I'm still dreaming about autumn, but with another week of temperatures in the high 90s here on the Texas Gulf Coast, all the colorful leaves I will see anytime soon will be ink stamped on paper!

10 Minute Card
For this card I stamped leaves in various colors using Kitchen Sink Stamps' Multi Step Big Leaves and my Memento teardrop inks. I added a band of orange burlap ribbon and then popped up a matted circle sentiment. The words came from 3 Step Autumn Squirrel (Autumn) and Ready 4 Any Holiday (blessings).

10 Minutes and 10 Minutes More Card

For this card I used the same stamp sets using the triple stamping method. Three panels of paper (small, medium, and large) were stacked one on top the other and secured with repositionable tape. I then stamped the images as if they were all on one sheet of paper. Next I removed the panels, added a narrow mat cut with deckle scissors and then glued them back together in their original positions. I finished the card with a taffeta bow.

I hope things are cooler where you are and autumn has made its arrival there! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it heads down here to Texas soon!

Don't miss out on the opportunity to see the inspired work from the rest of the crew!!
