On to today's Timeless Tuesday Challenge at Flourishes, today's challenge is to use gold or silver on your project. I thought Christmas for this challenge as nothing goes better with gold or silver than Christmas! I used the Stampin Up ornament punch and a circle punch to create the ornament. I punched a small snowflake on the silver circle. The flourishes was from the Stampin Up Baroque Motif stamp set, the sentiment was from Flourishes Trimmed With Love stamp set. I used red glitter cardstock to create the border at the top and finished it off with some white and silver ribbon. This is such a easy and simple card yet just beautiful! I saw a sample of this card on Pinterest, sorry I cannot find the posted so unable to give credit for the inspiration for my card.

Hope everyone is getting excited for Thanksgiving, I know that I am my son and grandson will be arriving on Thursday and we plan to have a wonderful holiday!! Today's Timeless Tuesday Challenge over at Flourishes is all about being HAPPY! This is a fun challenge and I decided to use the Dear Santa stamp set from Flourishes, it is such a happy feeling stamp set. I just love the Christmas Holidays and this just reminds me of being a kid and what a happy time of the year. I used copic markers to color both stamps and stickles to add a little of bling! I cut the squares using Spellbinder dies. Hope everyone has a lovely holiday. Happy Thanksgiving!!

It time for another Release Week Challenge at Flourishes it is to create using nature as your inspiration. I just received my Autumn Blossom stamp set and it so reminder me of all the beautiful fall colors. I stamp with black ink, color the stamp with Prisma Pencil using mineral spirits to blend the colors. I just love this technique. Used a little baker's twine and stamped the sentiment with black ink and create a small tag. This is such a beautiful stamp set!!! Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend, mine is filled with my beautiful grandbaby twins Andy and Alyssa's 2nd Birthday Party!!! Will be a weekend full of family and fun, I am truly blessed!!!

Good Tuesday everyone!!! I look forward to Tuesday to see what Flourishes's design team have up their sleeve! This week is Sneek Peek Week as well as Timeless Tuesday Challenge. The new stamps set are so cute. This week's challenge is to create using a yummy treat as the focal point. I search through my stamp sets and found I do not have anything that has a yummy treat imagine that!! My daughter however had a set from Flourishes that has been retired Birthday Celebrations. It is a cute little set perfect for a child birthday. I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black, and colored with Prisma watercolor pencils. Used Spellbinder's Lacey Square die cut and cut out the stamped image. I stamped again the balloons only and cut out added glitter to them and popped them up with pop dots. The sentiment is also from the same stamp set. This will be a perfect card for my little grandson that turns 10 in November!! Looking forward to the rest of the week's Sneek Peek and all the fun stamps coming out. Have a great rest of the week and remember Keep Stamping :)

I have been playing around with the side step cards and they have quickly become one of my favorite type of cards! I recently saw a card on SCS Gallery using Stampin Up's Christmas Lodge Stamps. I happen to have them on my MDS2 so I wanted to give it a try. I not sure of the person's name who made the card on SCS, as when I went back I could not find the post so unable to give you credit for the idea. I gave it a try and here is what I came up with, it is really pretty and sparkly! All of the stamps were done digital with MDS2 I just love digital scrapbooking and cards. This software is just so much fun!!

Hope you have all seen the new Christmas releases at Flourishes, they are just beautiful!!! The Flourishes Dear Santa Noon Time Challenge was to create a card that was fun for kids and kids at heart. This was such a fun challenge as I have 4 grandchildren and just love making cards for them. I chose to use a retired stamp from Stampin Up for the Santa and decided to create a snow globe. I used the Christmas Classic stamp set from Flourishes for the sentiment. Using prima pencil to color the Santa, and the cuttlebug snowflake folder to emboss. Hope you all are having a good week. The weather here in Southeast Texas has been really nice for this time of year, so I am enjoying being outside after such a long hot summer :). Enjoy the rest of the week and Keep Stamping!!
