Let's Make a Scene! KSS Monday

I have decided to mix things up a bit with my Kitchen Sink Stamps posts. (post sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps). It has been over 4 years now that I have been doing 10 minute cards every Monday. Two years later I started adding 20 minute cards as well. While clean and simple is normally my style, there are so many more things you can do with your Kitchen Sink Stamps. And scene cards are my FAVORITE sooooooooooooooo....

Beginning today and every 2nd and 4th Monday of each month, I am going to be creating scenic cards by mixing several KSS sets together to an extent that 10 and 20 minutes did not allow. Today's card  was completed in 60 minutes. To create this card, I stamped the rabbit first and then masked him. I then stamped the rock wall and masked it. Next I added the sunflowers and grasses. 

This card is going to a sweet friend who is moving out of state this week. I am going to mail it a few days before she leaves so it will be there waiting for her when she arrives.

  1. It's amazing to me that you're able to create such beautiful cards in just 10 minutes. It takes me about that long JUST to decide on one thing. This is a lovely scenery with the bunnies.

  2. What a fantastic scene. It's gorgeous; your masking and stamping are perfection. Awesome work combining the different sets, Lynn.

  3. Oh Lynn, your scene is stunning!! Love the added stone fence with the rabbit!! Wonderful details and I really look forward to seeing your scenes every Monday my friend!! :) Thanks for sharing!!

  4. Oh Lynn what a darling scene you have created.

    Hugs Diane

  5. Lynn, your scene is just adorable! Love that little bunny and the sunflowers look so real. Fantastic!!! Your friend is going to love this and be so surprised when it's waiting for her after the move.

  6. I love how the lace continues the wall. Very clever!

  7. Your scenes are always spectacular and so glad you will be sharing those twice a month. This little bunny looks so cute in this scene, and what a sweet idea to mail the card ahead and having it waiting for your friend.

  8. Love how you used the lace to carryout the scene! Fantastic images, just a wonderful card Lynn!

  9. How sweet of you- how cool to have a special card in the mailbox when she arrives at her new home! I LOVE what you have done here- the masking is perfect too. The bunny with the stone wall behind it is cool- and I love the pretty flowers.
