Autumn Cabin - KSS

Although the 5th Monday of the month would usually have me featuring 10 Minutes and 10 Minutes More designs, I was just in the mood for creating a lovely autumn scene today. So this week's card sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps features images from Multi Step Birch Trees and Multi Step Cabin by the Lake.



I have entered this design in the following challenges:

CCEE1642 - One Layer Card

The challenge this week at CCEE Stampers is to create a one layer card. I am currently in Christmas card mode as I prepare sets of cards for an upcoming charity auction. 

This design came together pretty quickly and easily. The images are from Ornamental Pine and Merry Little Christmas by Stampin' Up. I stamped the pine needles with Memento Olive Grove and the cones were stamped double, first with Memento Rich Cocoa followed with Memento Potter's Clay. I then sponged the edge all around with Memento Bamboo Leaves and then the cones with Stampin' Up Soft Suede. The sentiment was stamped with Versamark and then embossed in gold. As a final touch, I dabbed Indian Gold Nuvo Embellishment Mousse around the outside edge.

10 Minutes and 10 Minutes More KSS Pears

I discovered when I needed to send a thank you card last week that my supply was depleted so the cards I design for the rest of this week will be thank you cards! With the inventory of cards I have on hand,  there is no excuse for not having what I need at a moment's notice.

That being said, today's 10 Minutes and 10 Minutes More designs sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps are thank you cards featuring the beautiful Multi Step Pears. The sentiment for each is from Make a Big Statement.

10 Minute Card




20 Minute Card - Using masking for this card I added three pears as well as the branch from Multi Step Owl & Autumn Moon and the leaf cluster from Multi Step Berries.
