4 New KSS Sets and 10 Minute Challenge #69

Before we get to this week's KSS 10 Minute Design, I want to share some of the beautiful images being released today at Kitchen Sink Stamps. It was a real luxury for me to spend time playing with these gorgeous designs and to create a card or two that didn't take 10 minutes.

In addition to new stamps, Maria is also unveiling her new Rewards Program.

               Buy 10 stamps of one size, get the 11th of the same size FREE.                     
         Check out all the details by clicking the Rewards tab in the Kitchen Sink Store! 

My first design today was created with Multi Step Mother's Cameo. This set is so perfect for beautiful and elegant Mother's Day cards. I paired it with some embroidered French lace and a sentiment from Whole Family.

Next come these gorgeous pears to add to your collection of Kitchen Sink fruit. The set contains two pears, one is sliced in half and the other is whole. I stamped the cut pear first, masked it, and then added the whole pear behind it. The set also contains some great pun sentiments.

And now we arrive at this week's 10 Minute Card design. As you know from seeing them everywhere in the paper crafting world, flags and pennants are hot right now. I decided to incorporate them into a 10 minute design before they are NOT!

This first 10 minute card was created with one of the humming birds from the final set being released today. This redesigned humming bird is much easier to layer and stamp than the one in the Year of  Thanks set. If you loved that bird, but couldn't master it, this set is for you!
