KSS 10 Minutes and 10 Minutes More Carnations

This week's 10 Minutes and 10 Minutes More designs sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps use the Multi Step Carnations. This has fast become my favorite flower to stamp due to the ease of lining it up quickly and the elegant simplicity of the cards created with it. It is great for a multitude of occasions and gorgeous in all colors.

10 Minute Card

For this card I stamped a single bloom and topped it with an elegant die cut sentiment. So fast and easy.

  5. There's beauty in simplicity and your first card definitely demonstrates that. But your second card is breathtaking. I love them both. That flower...I can't get over how realistic it looks...stamping sure has come a long way.
