Timeless Tuesday #192

Good morning everyone, I'm a little late getting my challenge card done!  The Timeless Tuesday challenge at Flourishes is to create a birthday card.  This works out great for me as I need a birthday card for a very dear friend in a couple of weeks.  I choose to use the Summer Blossoms stamp set from Flourishes along with the sentiment from the Botanical Bookplate stamp set.  I decided to use the reverse spotlight technique on my stamp.  I stamped the Summer Blossoms twice and colored the one with Prisma Watercolors and blended with mineral spirits.  The second stamp I punched a 1" circle  from the stamped image and punched a 1 1/4" circle for the backing.  This makes such a pretty effect.  I used Stampin Up Diamond Dazzle Glitter on the punched stamp.  A little ribbon, pearls  and rhinestones to finish off the look!  Enjoy the rest of the week and Keep Stamping!!

Hi everyone, hope everyone is having a great week so far!!  This week's Timeless Tuesday Challenge at Flourishes is hosted by Cindy and it's all about Winter.  I love this challenge as I love winter and all things it brings.  I choose to use the Flourishes's Vintage Postcard stamp set, it reminds me of cold winter day's with the ice skaters and the sleigh.  I use watercolors to color my stamp, alittle of Stampin Up's dazzling diamond glitter.  This is such a pretty stamp set, it is one of my favorite!!  Enjoy the rest of your week, and remember to keep Stamping!

Go Natural Challenge

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!!!

Inside and Outside Challenge

It's is the first of the noon time challenge at Flourishes.  Today's challenge is to create the inside and outside of your card.  I choose to use the Cowboy Christmas stamp set I just received.  I really love this set, as I live in Texas and it is a perfect fit for a lot of my friends and family!!  I used copic markers

I stamped the hat twice and cut it out and used pop dots.  Stamped the sentiment with red ink, the background paper and the ribbon is from the new Christmas 1 2 3 Kit at Flourishes. The inside of the card was done using the same stamp set, it was colored with prisma pencils and left over paper from the front.  Hope everyone is having a great week.  Look for the noon time challenge tomorrow at Flourishes

Timeless Tuesday Challenge #190

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 :)

Think Pink Challenge

Well October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and over at Flourishes they are hosting a Think Pink Challenge.  Breast Cancer Awareness is very dear to my heart, as I lost my dear aunt to breast cancer :(.  I choose to use a rubber stamp from The Rubber Stamp Cafe, I just love this stamp.  I used copic markers RV02, RV04, RV06 to color the stamp.  Used silver glitter to accent the stamp, a little pink ribbon and all done!  Don't forget self examines and mammograms this month!!!

Link Up For Pink

Here is my LUFP challenge card!!!  It only needed to have a splash of pink on it. 

5 Senses World Card Making Day Challenge

I took a fun class on Saturday, great way to spend World Card Making Day!!!  We made this cute Halloween card and I thought it fit perfect for the challenge that Flourishes was holding.  It is all made using the Sizzix Pop N Cut system.  The smell and taste of yummy pumpkin, the sound of the gate opening and the feel of embossing on the Happy Halloween.  Hope everyone enjoyed the day, I really did the class by Karen Burniston was great!!!
