Timeless Tuesday Challenge #197

Hi everyone hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!  Our family had a wonderful day with the entire family.  We celebrated our oldest grandchild's 10th birthday on Sat. with ice cream and go cart rides just a fun day! 
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.

Timeless Tuesday Challenge #196

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!!

Timeless Tuesday Challenge #194

Will it Tuesday and time for another Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge!!  Today challenge is to use colors or object in the picture to inspire you.  I used Flourishes Classics Christmas stamp set for the sentiment and Stampin Up's Medallion and Dasher stamp sets for the remaining card .  Some dazzling diamond glitter and all finished!  This really turned out pretty!  Hope everyone has a great week! 

The Be Progessive Challenge

I'm alittle behind on my challenge cards, have been a little under the weather :(.  The new release week at Flourishes has brought a very fun challenge.  It is in 4 step to create your card.  I found this to be so much fun.  I choose to use the Autumn Blossom stamp set from Flourishes along with the Medallion stamp from Stampin Up.  This was a really fun way to start off the new releases, can't wait to see what is in store for us.

Pop N Cut Cards

After taking one of Karen Burniston's Pop N Cut Classes, I have been looking for the base die set and finally found it at Hobby Lobby :).  I have been having so much fun making Christmas Cards with it and just this past weekend found the Lantern and Pennant Sizzlits Decorative Strip at Hobby Lobby.  These cards are so much fun to create so glad I took her class, thanks Karen for inspiring me with your Pop N Cut!!!  You can check out the Pop N Cut designs at Sizzix's Blog.

Timeless Tuesday #193

This week's Timeless Tuesday challenge at Flourishes is to have your focal point fall off the page.  I choose to use the new Christmas stamp set Poinsettia & Pine.  I used copic markers to color my stamp.  Using Spellbinder square and lacey square set I cut out the stamped image with a little falling off the page.  The background paper is from the 1 2 3 Kit of September.  Enjoy the rest of the week.  Remember to Keep Stamping!
