Stamp Simply #41 – 10 Minute Tuesday

Keyword ssnotime41 -There is no time limit. You can play this challenge and upload yourproject at Splitcoastand/or your Blog, anytime at all! You (and that means anyone and everyone, blogger or not!)can play as many times as you like!!! The point is to keep it simple, quick and have fun!!! Please link back here.

The challenge this week is to make a 10 Minute Tuesday card. Forthose who may not know what 10 Minute Tuesday is,each Tuesday I do aBlog post showcasing a card that canbe reproduced in about 10 minutes. I realize the designing and making of most cards doestake more than 10 minutes, but try to come up withsomething, that if you were going to reproduce it, you coulddo soin about 10 minutes — OK? So, in other words, keep it really simple! Most importantly have fun!!!

Here are some samples:

Check out Julie Koerberssample here.

Check out Dee Jacksons sample here.

Check out Tammy Hershbergers samplehere.

Check out Jennifer Bucks sample here.

Check out Janine Orchards sample here.

What a fabulous Stamp Simply Team!!! Thank you girls!!! Much appreciated!!!

And heres my sample:


This time I made my Coffee, from Coffee with Friends,of the iced variety!!! A great summer drink!!! My cup was paper pieced, my straw was just cut by hand, and my foam or whipped cream is Liquid Applique by Marvy. All the pink and patterned paper is from the Sultry pad, while my brown matting is from Sugared. My Basic Grey pads are pretty well used up and I’ve been combining a lot of the pads to get the colors I need, and it works!!! I LOVE the combination of these 2 prints from the Sultry pad!!! The bottom pink is stamped with one of the steam stamps from Coffee with Friends and it makes a quick and fun background. And here’s a closeup of the tag detailing:


The tag is die cut on my Cuttlebug using the Tag Trio by Spellbinders. I just ran a length of the sheer dotted ribbon through the hole and then inserted my pink brad. The tag is mounted on dimenstional tape and the little dotted tails are neatly held in place with a Zot.

And you know what made this a 10 minute card?

  • Remember how quick and easy it is to paper piece this large mug? Click here.

So, with a few things done ahead of time — this card truly did come together in short order!!!

Editing to add another card — did this for the LSC at SCS today — the challenge was to limit your embellishments to brads ONLY, and they had to be a part of your main image, not just tacked in a corner. I thought this LSC would go perfetly with this 10 Minute Tuesday type ofchallenge here today, so I did another this morning:


Clean, sleek, modern, simplistic! Love it!! This is 9.25″ x 4 1/8″ and fits a business sized envelope. Fits the LSC to use brads as your only embellishment, and it was a 10 minute card for me because this main image panel with 3 paper peiced mugs was in my rejecto pile from another project gone awry!!! But it works here!!! And that’s a good thing!!!!

Remember when you upload to use the keyword above, followed by a comma.Please come back here to post (as a comment) that youve played, and provide a linksowe can check out your card right away. You can find all cards uploaded for this challenge by clicking Gallery Submissions Here.

Some wanting to play said they have never uploaded before. If thats you and you need help uploading, just go to my Challenge No. 1 here.

Thanks so much for stopping in everyone I truly appreciate it!! Hope you can find some time to play!!! Thanks much!!!

And I have a fun human interest story to post on the weekend. I’ll try to get it up on Friday night, so please check back!!!! It’ll make you smile!

    All of your samples were really pretty — loved your paper piecing and foam. And I was drooling over Tammy’s sundae — even at this hour of the morning! My card is much simpler than any of them. http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/960839?cat=500&ppuser=72594

    It’s super simple and could definitely be reproduced in 10 minute!
    Thanks and have a great weekend!

  8. Wow! I love both cards!! I laughed when I saw you say – You know what makes this a ten minute card?? I said lightning fast hands with all that cutting??? Then I read on — great idea!!! I should start making card bases like you — fabulous idea!! BTW – love the foam and straw you added on your coffee card – brilliant!! πŸ™‚

  11. Helen says:

    Here is my card for today’s challenge:

    I did take a bit more time this first card but also do think I could remake a similar card in 10 minutes now. Fun challenge, for me it was hard not to fuss a bit more or add a bit more. I guess that makes for a challenge!

  12. Carol says:

    A girl can get seriously hooked on these challenges, ya know? *wink*
    Thanks for providing these Sharon – it’s really fun to do. I love your card today and how you pieced the paper on the mug. It’s awesome but I can’t imagine myself doing one like that in 10 minutes. I need some streamlining shortcuts! LOL
    Anyway, here’s mine – a basic card with little fuss:

  13. Liz Williams says:

  28. Joanne says:

    The embossing was quick to do all at once, then just added a string of pearls and ribbon. Very easy:

    Thanks for a fun challenge, Sharon!

  29. leslierich says:

    Mmmmmmmm, yummy! I’d love to have a coffee cup like the one on your first card. The steam swirls in this set make fabulous backgrounds. Both cards are just super! The three colorful cups on a black and white long format background–awesome!

  30. Rose Ann says:

    I love your first card….it’s just so yummy with those papers and Liquid AppliquΓ©!! Your second is very pretty with the different cups!! This has to be the most lovliest coffee set ever, and on my list to order next time. *wink*

  31. Toni says:

    I finally got to this! I really like my finished product and love that it was so quick. It would be super easy to replicate. Hopefully, I didn’t cheat! I used rub-ons, not stamps.


  32. suen says:

    I love the paper pieced mug of iced coffee and the long card with the three cups! Congratulations on your set! I think this card qualifies for the 10 min. challenge, even though I made the Papertrey Guide Lines piece ahead of time. I’ve been playing with different designs and color combinations and decided a piece for the SC. I’ve gotten behind on your site, as I’m away from home for 2 months, but love your ideas!
