Stamp Simply --- In 10 minutes or less!

Hi All! It's Friday which means it's time for another Stamp Simply challenge!! This week, it's all about creating with ease! If you like to pump out cards in a hurry, you really need to pay attention to Sharon Johnson's 10 Minute Tuesday posts! That's what she does - cards that can be reproduced in 10 minutes! So, that's what this week's Stamp Simply is all about. You can check out the official details HERE.

You might look at my card and say - there is no way this is a ten minute card! Well, it was. You know why? All of the pieces - the cut paper, the scallops, the circle were cut ahead of time. All of these pieces were rejects from another creation. When I pulled out the lily of the valley stamp (part of the Peony set) from Flourishes, these pieces took on a whole new life! I matted it up, stamped my leaves with Vintage Green Vivid and my flower stalks with Versafine Smoky Grey. The words "lily of the valley was also stamped with Versafine Smoky Gray. I then accented the flowers with a really light blue Tombow marker. Add some ribbon (Seafoam Sheer by May Arts) and some adhesive backed pearls and you're done! So, dig through your paper storage and look for scraps - Take it from me - you never know when yesterday's rejects could be today's ten minute creation!
