KSS 10+10 - Get Well Carnations

Today's 10 Minutes and 10 Minutes More designs sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps feature their newest blossom, the Multi Step Carnation. I have used it to create get well cards .
The sentiments are from Make a Big Statement and Simple Sentiments while the script is from Letters from the Past.

10 Minute Card

For this card I stamped the carnation directly on a Pale Plum Stampin' Up card front and used a Spellbinders' die to create the label for the sentiment. I cut the purple label in half and lined it up as a frame for the white label. 

20 Minute Card

For this card I stamped the script background on the Recollections White card front and on a separate panel of Recollections White. I then stamped the carnations on the separate panel, fussy cut them out, and popped them up over the script on the card front. The ribbon is tied around the popped up stem. I love the depth created on this fun design.

Color Recipe on both cards:

Stems - Layer 3 Memento Olive Grove
Layer 2 Memento Bamboo Leaves stamped twice

  1. Lynn, both of these are stunning!!! Love the color you selected for the carnation. Just beautiful.
    Hope y'all aren't washing away with all the rain in that area.

  2. Both are just lovely, Lynn! I hope the rain isn't anywhere near you - my brother is now in Texas and sends me some pretty wild updates! Be well!

  4. Lynn, both of these cards are gorgeous! Love the flowers!

  5. Oh Lynn these are fabulous!! I might have to C.A.S.E. the 10 minute one for my Nursing Home group. It'll only take them 25 minutes! LOL

  6. I am such a huge fan of the purple! These are both equally gorgeous!! The layered flower really looks amazing! :)

  7. You make me smile with your gorgeous cards- and I imagine how long it would take me to make cards like these. I just LOVE seeing the CAS and 10 minute cards, and how you step it up a notch. I LOVE the popped up carnation and the bow. Beautiful!

  8. These carnations are lovely...those layered stamps really make such a difference in the finished product! Beautiful colors, too!
