10 Minute Card


Today was the deadline As You See it Challenge #283. Today's challenge had the theme of Pumpkins and Gourds. This challenge also had a twist. You were asked to create a card in 10 minutes or less. 

I finished my card in 9 minutes and 36 seconds. I find that using dies or punches make card making go faster. No fussy cutting today and minimal stamping.  

Cardstock: Basic White, Early Espresso, Mossy Meadow and Pumpkin Pie

DSP: Rustic Harvest

Stamp Set: Hello Harvest 

Dies: Rustic Pumpkin and Stitched Rectangle

Ink: Crushed Curry, Early Espresso and Old Olive

Linen Thread

Thank you all for stopping by today. Be sure to check out the other entries in this challenge.

Happy Stamping!

  3. Suzanne your plan worked perfectly for a speed challenge; your mix of pattern and texture makes for a great card! Thanks for sharing with us over at As You See It!

  4. SO pretty, Suzanne! Love these leaves so much! I like to use dies in our speed challenges, too - every little bit helps, lol. Thanks so much for playing at As You See It!

  5. Hi Suzanne! This card is "gourdous"! I love that you were so creative with the dies and punches! Those sweet leaves with the twine were the perfect finishing touch!
