KSSMonday - Hibiscus

For today's 10 Minutes and 10 Minutes More Kitchen Sink Stamps designs I am working with the 3 Step Hibiscus. (post sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps)

For the 10 minute card, I pulled colors from the BasicGrey Flower Garden designer paper from their Lemonade collection to create this card of friendship.

  1. There's nothing like looking at beautiful flowers on a Monday morning! Both of these are stunning! Wonderful cards.

  2. You are the master of the multi step precision stamping Lynn. I always can spend several minutes in trying to decipher how many layers and in what colors you stamped the layers in to get an idea of the complexity of the stamp image. Both are so just lovely and life like. The humming bird is incredible with the red hibiscus.

  3. Lynn, thank you for the comments you left on my blog :) FYI, regarding the VSN, we now have a whole week to play along. Last upload is due on Sat, June 20th. Only rule is that the time for each card created should be under one hour, so we're on the honor system! You can still play along, when you have time. This new change is something I can really appreciate.

  4. Both of your cards are beautiful! Love the soft colors of the first card and pretty background you created. The second card is a mixture of pure delight, love the hummingbird!

  5. These are both really GORGEOUS cards Lynn!! I am especially partial to that hummingbird as it brings memories for me! :)

  6. So much multi-step stamping!!! You are so good at it. I must keep pushing to get better. Lovely card as always.

  7. Just Perfect! I have got to use patterned paper more in my cards. It is so challenging for me, you make it look so easy!


Thank you so much for visiting my blog today and leaving a comment on my work! I sincerely appreciate it!!
