Kitchen Sink Stamps 10 Minute Card Challenge 22

On a usual Kitchen Sink Monday I will post 4 samples for the weekly 10 Minute Card Challenge. There is a reason I post 4 samples instead of 1 - guilt! The rest of the members of the Kitchen Sink Crew each post a beautiful creation they have spent a lot of time designing and executing while I am posting a card that takes ten minutes to build! It just doesn't seem right to me! Since it normally takes me an average of 40 minutes to create a pretty layered card with embellishments, I make four 10 minute cards. Seems only fair to me!

Well, today when I got started on 10 Minute Card Challenge #22, I was having so much fun sorting through my designer paper scraps and matching them to my Kitchen Sink Stamps that I just couldn't stop! So this week you are getting 7 samples!!

For the challenge I cut three squares of designer paper (1.75 inches square) for each card. I then glued them to the card front in a windowpane pattern and stamped a Kitchen Sink image in the place where the fourth windowpane would be. I finished each card with a fun sentiment! I hope this will be something you find useful for creating quick and simple cards with your KSS images. If you would like to share your card for the challenge in the Kitchen Sink Gallery, be sure to include keyword 10MC22.
