Timeless Tuesday Challenge #216 ~ Frame It!

Hi all, it's time for another Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge.  Today it is all about frames.  You will create a project or card using any type of frame.  I choose to use Spellbinder's square frames in two different sizes.  I used Flourishes Butterflies and Blossoms stamp set, pearls from one of the 1 2 3 Kits and the Cuttlebug Honeycomb embossing folder.  I used  Sakura Glaze Pens to color my image.  I have never used them to color an image before, but love how pretty it turned out.  We are enjoying some really nice spring weather here in Texas and I thought this was a perfect spring image.  Enjoy the rest of the week and remember Keep Stamping!!

Timeless Tuesday Challenge ~ #215 Around The House

Happy Tuesday all!  It time for another challenge at Flourishes and today it is all about finding something around the house to use on your project.  I found a small piece of floral wire and decided it would be perfect to suspend my butterfly from.  I used the Sizzix Pop N Cuts flower diecut to create my card.  The butterflies are from Flourishes Butterflies and Blossoms stamp set.  On the front of the card I used Stampin Up's Manhattan Embossing folder and some watercolors to color the flowers.  The sentiment is from Flourishes Botanical Bookplates.  I made this card for my sister's birthday, hope it brightens her day.  Enjoy the rest of the week!

Just Had To Share!!

I just had to share this cute birthday card I made with Karen Burniston's Pop N Cuts!  They are just so darn cute and so much fun to make.  I made this card for my grandson to take to a birthday party on Sat.  I saw a cute card on the Sizzix Blog and thought that would be a perfect card for him to take!  I cut the balloons from my Basic George Circut cartridge, for the banner I used the Sizzlits Flagpole set.  I cut the card using the circle base die from Sizzix and the Happy Birthday was cut using Spellbinders Label die set.  For the front of the card I used the Cuttlebug Happy Birthday embossing folder and cute little birthday cake stamp(not sure where I got it).  I just think it is adorable.  Hope you are all having a wonderful week!!

Summer Lovin' Challenge

It's April and time for Release Week at Flourishes!  They are kicking it off with a challenge using the above picture. Using the colors in the picture or keeping summer in mind to create your project.  I order the Summer Blossoms stamp set in December and thought what a perfect set for this challenge.  I stamped the image with Versamark and used chalk to color in the image. The sentiment is from Botanical Bookplate set.  I just loved how this turned out so pretty and the little butterflies just finished it off.  I think this really captured the look of summer.  I just can't wait to see all the new releases at Flourishes, so make sure to hop over to their site and check them all out!!!
