Just Peachy

My friend and Paper Makeup Stamps DT member, Dawn, has been using these fun stamps from Kitchen Sink Stamps. They are so cool. Yesterday, she posted that Kitchen Sink Stamps has daily challenges on their forum. Mondays are 10 minute challenges and today the challenge was to use a window pane layout. With their easy use stamps, it should have taken 10 minutes to do this card, but alas it did not! Maybe next time! Here's the 60 minute-ish card!The set I used is called Multi Step Peach. There are four different stamps for the peaches. Each one is stamped in a different color to get that cool shading effect. I stamped the first stamp in barely banana, the second in so saffron, the third in apricot appeal, then lastly groovy guava. The leaves are a three step process. I stamped the first in certainly celery, then garden green, and then eggplant envy. The dp is Basic Grey's Curio and I used a scallop punch for the edge. The button ribbon trim is something I picked up last year at my LSS. The base is early espresso cardstock and I used a PTI impression plate on it. I don't know if you can see it, but it's a diamond pattern. I stamped the sentiment (also from this set) in Memento rich cocoa on the image for two reasons: one because there was no place where it would show up nicely and two because there was a little boo-boo on the peach and the sentiment covered it up!

Thanks for stopping in today! Have a great day!

What a neat card! Thanks for explaining how you did it and the colors you used! I love it!

I don't think it will EVER be possible for me to make a card in ten!

I have decided it is an unwritten rule that newbies learning to line up and match up colors have an extension to the 10 minute rule. I certainly need it! Don't you just love these stamps!

This is just beautiful!! I think it still qualifies because if you were to make it again it'd be 10 minutes, right? ;) That's what I like to think anyway! :)
