New a few times over!

Kitchen Sink Stamps is my newest "favorite" stamp company.  Okay, I know, I know...I have a lot of "favorite companies.  But each "favorite" is a favorite for a reason. KSS happens to have these awesome multistep stamps that create the most amazing photorealistic images...when you line up the stamps correctly! haha.

As the new year was ushered in, KSS opened their brand new forums/website. And today I stumbled upon a "10 Minute Card" challenge. I know my mom thinks I stamp all day long. But I do not. In fast, this is the only card I stamped today. 




Yes, it took a few more minutes long than 10...b/c this Peach set is new to me so I had to experiement. And frankly, I'm sure the "10 minutes" must start after you know exactly what papers images you are using!  All papers can be found at Paper Temptress

Can you believe I have never tried KSS?! Don't know why, because I love the realistic look!
I like your card. I'd spend over 10min just figuring out what inks I'd want to use!

does that say, Peachy Keen? I used to say that phrase in high school. Even got quoted in the HS newspaper. funny.

Great card, always super coloring. I want some peaches now.

Nice stamp, too

Yes! The 10 minutes start AFTER you know what you're using. I would even go so far as to add...even after you've picked your colors. *giggle

Beautifully done 10 min card!

Dawn your peach looks almost as good as the ones on the fruit stand. A really fruity card!

Tammy said...

Beautiful Dawn! I saw the KSS stamps on another TUIC blog and wondered if they were digi stamps. They look so perfect! I have NO crafty money, so I am going to stay away from that website... or else I would be in trouble!
