Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge is to "Frame It".  The images I used are Flourishes " Cherries and Peaches", now this is one gorgeous stamp set. I colored the image of the peaches with Copic's and then using Prisma pencils to give it more texture. I then cut it out and used pop-dots to attach to the frame. My frame is by Spellbinders Marvelous squares. I sponged it with Memento and the card stock is by GKD. I'm so ready for warm days and peaches!!

Flourishes Timeless Tuesday # 166

Hi there! Are you ready to play a fun challenge? Heather is this week hostess and want us to play Bingo!
Here is how to play,  just choose three items in a row to use on your card. Either straight across (horizontally), up and down ((vertically) or diagonally.

For my cards I went with vertically, using bling, die cut and emboss.
The images in all are "Beach Life" by Flourishes. I loved creating this scene with this set.
My base frame  die cut is Spellbinders. Which I also embossed.  Added pearls as my bling.
I masked off the horizon and sponged in my background with Memento's. Stamped the trees in and colored them with Copic's. I extended the shore by stamping the shoreline and stamping half of the image again to the shoreline.
I stamped the shoreline in London Fog and went over all the lines with white pen. Here is a book mark I made out of the first one that I messed up on!! Hey it work's!
My last card is all the same just in different colors.
I hope you can play along with us and you can see all the details here.

Sadly this is my last week as Guest Designer, I really enjoyed working along with these incredibly talented ladies, it was quite a honor!!  I love playing with these stamps!!

Be sure to check the rest of the teams beautiful cards.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.

Hi there! Just wanted to share with you, something I made for my mom. I made this out of clear craft plastic, the finished size is about 3 1/2 x 4 1/2.
I love this set and I know my mom will love this bookmark! The stamp set is by Flourishes " He is Risen", the image was colored with Copic's . Isn't this a beautiful image? I'm going to give it to her tomorrow, that way she will have it for Easter services.

A close up of the back, which can be used also for marking a page. Sorry I didn't take a photo of it in a book.

Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #163

Hi there! I was so excited about being asked to be April's guest designer for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge!!! I have fallen in love with these beautiful designed stamps and it is such a honor to be among such talented designers.

Today's challenge is hosted by Beate and the challenge to to make a birthday card. How easy is that? Always need birthday cards, right?

For my first card I used" Flourishes "He is Risen" and the sentiment is from 'Kid's Play". I cut out a oval from Spellbinders and sponged it with SU .
I used a Memento black marker and applying it only to the part of the image I wanted to stamp, using the huffing technique I stamped right on the oval. The card base is Spellbinders lattice frame.

Using the same stamp set I used the single Lily image, colored with Copic's and cut them out. The card base is Grand Nestabilities and scored in half. Using a smaller die I cut out a piece of DP. The background foliage is from Flourishes stamp set "Spring Ephemerals" and the sentiment is again from "Kids Play".

For more inspiration check out the rest of the teams gorgeous creations.

Hope you get a chance to join in and you can find all the info here.

Spring is Here

Hi! Is spring really here? I'm ready!! I finally got to play with my stamps today and made some corner bookmarks for some challenges.
I used this really adorable stamp set from Flourishes that I just got and couldn't wait to try. I colored the bunny with Prisma Pencils and cut the image out. To keep with Joan's challenge I used a envelope and Spellbinders border for the edge right through both sides. The DP is "My Mind Eye" The Stamp is by Flourishes " Spring Has Sprung".

Here is a view of the the back. (Can you tell this is a old book?)

I had so much fun and wanted to try a different border, so here is another bookmark using the same stamp set. I used the largest die of Spellbinders Lattice rectangles.

This is for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge to make a Easter card or project. I think this would be a nice Easter gift with a book. Also I'm entering this in Joan's Gardens challenge.
  • Create a corner bookmark using the corner cut off an envelope. You can use an envelope from "junk" mail.
  • You need to cover the front and back
  • Be creative and let us see what you can come up with.
  • Tutorial will be Selma's blog for cutting measurements
Well this was really easy to make but now I need to clean up the mess I made. (looks like I made 10 cards)
Hope your day is going well and thanks for stopping by.
