Haste Makes Taste!! - Challenge #160

We haven't had a Speed Stamping Challenge in a long while, but we are asking you to challenge yourself, in the next two weeks, to create a card in under 10 minutes! "WHAT?!" you exclaim,"That's impossible!" Well, it isn't, as our design team will show you, but you can design it in your head or sketch it out first. You can gather all your supplies ahead of time. But once you start the stamping/die cutting/embossing/etc. process, you must start the timer! You have 10 minutes! Let us know, with your entry, how long it took you to complete your card or project! The key is to KISS!! Keep It Simple, Stamper!

Also, you can use any shades of Orange, plus neutrals, but no other colours!

Let's see how the Design Team managed the time limit:

Amy Jasper 8m1s

Jan Clothier 9m34s

Taking break this week

Tara Angus 9m0s

Here are some guidelines for the challenge:

  • Create any card, scrapbooking page, 3D project or packaging   project that fits the challenge.
  • You can come up with your design and gather materials before you start the clock, but once you start work, you have to complete your design in 10 min.
  • Use only shades of orange and neutrals in your project.
  • Please include the challenge graphic and link back to the   challenge in your blog post. Turn off word verification so we   can send you lots of feedback. Make sure you link the post not the whole blog to the Linky. Use #AYSI160 when uploading to a public gallery.
  • If you’re unsure about ‘the rules’, check the details under the Challenge Guidelines.


  1. Hello: I want to apologize for not following the requirement of making the card in less of ten minutes. I just saw the beautiful color inspiration picture and I went with it.
    I already removed my card from the challenge but I will make another one following the less than 10 min. requirement.
    I apologize for this oversight.
    Maria Rodriguez.

    1. I'm so sorry for missing this comment, Maria. No worries. This is not a common type of challenge so it is easy to miss that requirement. We are looking forward to seeing your new entry.
