Tuesday morning means another Timeless Tuesday Challenge. Amanda is the hostess this week. She challenged us to use our favorite stamps. I don’t know about you, but usually my favorite stamps are the NEW ones. Am I bad? I just love to use new images I haven’t used before.

So for the card I stamped one of the images of the new Botanical Bookplates Vo. 2 in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on white cardstock. It was cut and embossed with a Standard Circle Nestabilities die and the Out of the Box Technique and colored it with Copic Markers (Y00, Y11, Y13, Y17, YR15, YR24, YG11, YG13, YG17, B0000, B000). It was layered first on a piece of Kraft cardstock cut and embossed with a Tear Drop Circle die, then on a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with the Fair Isle Pendant die.

Patterned papers were cut and embossed with a Grand Rectangle Nestabilities die. The edges were sanded and stitched and Lace was adhered over the strip. May Arts Ribbon was tied above the lace and the bow was topped with a button.

The layers were adhered to the card base, Kraft cardstock, cut and embossed with a Grand Scallop Rectangle Nestabilities die.  A sentiment from that set was stamped on a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with a Fancy Tag 1 die. The embossed part was colored with Copic Marker B0000 before it was adhered under the image. Part of Rhinestones borders finish off the card.

Mona is our challenge hostess today. She asked us to use a fruit image on our project. I had to use the strawberry image. Ever since I can remember, on my birthday my Mom would make the first strawberry cake of the season. I continued this tradition (except for this year….I need to loose some pounds and that cake does not help with that.).

I stamped the big image of the Strawberries stamp set twice in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on white cardstock, colored it with Copic Markers (Strawberries YG03, R08, R24, R29, R39    Flowers: Y21, Y35, Y38, T0, T3   Leaves: YG01, YG03, YG17   Background: B0000, B000) and cut and embossed with a Standard Circle Nestabilities die. Part of one image was adhered on top of the other. The circle was adhered to a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with the largest Splendid Circles Nestabilities die.

Two pieces of Bo Bunny Country Garden Patterned Paper were cut and embossed with a Grand Rectangle Nestabilities die. The edges were sanded and stitched and May Arts Ribbon was tied around around the vertical strip. The layers were adhered to the card base, white cardstock cut and embossed with a Grand Label 23 die.

A sentiment from the Strawberries set was stamped in Tuxedo Black Ink on a piece of white cardstock cut and embossed with a die from the Home Sweet Home die pack. The embossed part was colored with Copic Markers B0000 and B000 before the tag was tied to the bow with embroidery thread and a button. Want2scrap bling finish off the card.

It’s my turn to host Timeless Tuesday again. I thought I give you an easy challenge. April is my birthday month so your challenge is to make a birthday card.

I love the new Botanical Bookplates Vo. 1 and thought they would make for a great spring birthday card. One of the images was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copic markers. The image was cut out with the Tailor-Made Classic Bookplate die and layered on a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with one of the the Antique Frame & Accent dies.

The border strip  and the small corner die of the same die package were used to cut another piece of white cardstock.  The card was designed with the designer papers. The sentiment was stamped with the same black ink on a piece of cardstock, cut and embossed with a Tailor-Made Classic Tag die. Ribbon and rhinestones finish off the card.

Maki is today’s Timeless Tuesday challenge hostess and asked us to create an Easter project or card. As soon as I read the challenge, I knew I wanted to use those adorable bunnies from Spring is Sprung.

I started by cutting the edges of a 6 1/4″ wide piece of white cardstock with a Classic Edge 2 die as well as a die from Classic Decorative Inserts die.  I scored the strip at 3″ and 6″ before stamping the bunny image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on one of the 3″ panels, above the embossed edge. The image was colored with Copic Markers (Bunnies: E40, E41, E42, E43, R00, R20   Flowers: Y13, Y15, Y17, RV10, B63, B66, G43, G46   Grass: YG01, YG03, YG17   Sky: B0000, B000).

A 6 1/2″ x 7″ piece of Kraft cardstock was scored at 3″ and 6″ on the 6 1/2″ side and adhered into a tube.The bunny strip was adhered around that tube. A 1 1/2″ x 6″ piece of MME Lost & Found 2 Rosy Patterned paper was stitched to a white cardstock strip. It was adhered above the bunny image strip. A rhinestone border bling was adhered to the bottom edge of the patterned paper layer and ribbon was tied around it. It was topped with a button, tied on with embroidery thread.

A hole was punched on top and ribbon threaded through it. Next a Hershey bar was pushed down into the tube and the ribbon on top was tied with a piece of embroidery thread. A sentiment from the same set was stamped on the lower right corner of the tube. Three small rhinestones on the embossed strip finish off the pull treat holder.

This week’s hostess is Silke and she created another sketch for us. Of course I had to use one of the new sets again. First I was thinking to use one of the new bookplates instead of the star, but I couldn’t find my new die. Turned my craft room upside down…not sure where it went. So I changed my plan and used the smaller of the Magnolias images.

The image was stamped twice in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on white cardstock. On one image I colored the leaves and colored the rose gray, on the other I colored just the rose and colored it pink and cut the rose out  (Copic Markers: RV81, RV85, G40, G82, G85, T3). The rose was adhered to the colored leaves with dimensional adhesive and Goldrush Smooch Glitz was added in to the flower center.

(FYI: I colored the bottom rose gray, so in case it shows a little, it will look like a shadow. If you look at the close up image, you can see the gray peeking through just a bit.)

A card front and the card base were cut and embossed with the largest of the Curved Rectangles dies. The card front was adhered to the card base so the curved rectangle shape looks complete.

Matching layers were cut out of Kraft cardstock as well as a piece of My Mind’s Eye Dolled Up paper. The top and bottom of each layer was cut with the edge of the Curved Rectangle die to match the shape of the card. These layers were stitched together.

White cardstock was cut and embossed with a Fancy Tag 2 die. The center was sponged with Vintage Photo distress ink and the edges of that center were stamped with the leave border of Magnolias, also in Vintage Photo ink. Another piece of white cardstock was cut and embossed with the smallest of the Petite Oval Nestabilities, sponged first with Antique Linen, then very lightly at the edges with Vintage Photo ink. A sentiment from the same set was stamped in the center of that oval with Tuxedo Black Memento ink. The oval was adhered to the Fancy Tag die cut with dimensionals.

A strip of white cardstock was cut with Classic Scallop Edgeabilities and a 1″ wide strip of Dolled Up paper was adhered above the scalloped strip.  The strips were adhered to the stitched layers.  Seam binding was threaded through one of the openings on the left hand side of the Fancy Tag die cut. The sentiment layers were adhered to the right hand side of the card base, slightly above the horizontal strips and the seam binding was tied into a bow.  Parts of a Finesse swirl and part of a Fancy Waves! Border bling finish off the card.

Today’s hostess is Cindy. Her challenge is to use Scallops and Lace. How fun and easy is that? I used a set called Botanical Bookplates Vo. 1 to give you a little sneak peek (plus it’s so gorgeous, I had to use it right away). More sneak peeks of the new release sets are coming up the next three days. So make sure to check the Flourishes Blog for links of all design team members.

I stamped the image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on White cardstock and cut and embossed it with the largest Classic Oval Nestabilities die. The image was colored with Copic Markers (B0000, B91, B05, Y32, Y38, G20, G21, G24, G28, YR30) and  sponged with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress ink. The edges of the oval were paper pierced and the oval was cut and embossed with the largest Beaded Oval Nestabilities die.

Two pieces of My Mind’s Eye  patterned paper were cut and embossed with the largest Label 21 Nestabilities die and the edges were sanded . The paper was then cut on the embossed line and adhered to a piece of  White cardstock that had been cut with the same die. Lace was adhered to the lower edge of the blue paper and the edges of the paper layers were stitched. Ivory Organdy Ribbon was threaded through one of the holes of the Beaded Oval die cut. The image layers were adhered to the card front with dimensionals and the ribbon was tied into a bow.

The card base was cut and embossed with the same Label 21 die and the card front was adhered on top. A sentiment from Botanical Bookplates Vo. 1 was stamped on a piece of Vellum cardstock, that had been cut and embossed with a Tailor-Made Classic Keyhole die. The sentiment was adhered over the lower edge of the image layer with small pieces of dimensionals. Those were covered up with Rhinestones. Part of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl on the upper right hand corner finish off the card.

It’s time for another Timeless Tuesday Challenge. Heather is our hostess this week and she gave us a gorgeous inspiration photo to pick three colors from.

I picked the light yellow, green and orange as my colors.  I stamped the big image from Butterflies & Blossoms in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on  Neenah Solar White cardstock. It was colored with  Copic Markers (Flowers: Y00, Y11, Y13, YR23, YR27, E37   Leaves: G40, G43, G46) and cut out. The small butterfly was stamped and colored (Y17, YR15, YR18) as well.

A frame was cut and embossed with a Picot Edge Circle and Standard Circle Nestabilities die. A piece of My Mind’s Eye Be Amazing patterned paper was cut with a slightly larger circle die and adhered behind the white frame. The cut out images were adhered over the frame with dimensionals. A 2″ x 3 7/8″ strip of Be Amazing Paper was adhered to a 3 7/8″ square of the same paper pack. The layers were stitched to a 1/4″ bigger Kraft cardstock square. May Arts Ribbon was tied around the square horizontally before the frame was adhered over the squares.

The layers were adhered to the card base, white cardstock cut and embossed with a Grand Scallop Square Nestabilities die. Part of the new Fancy That Want2Scrap Border bling and parts of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl finish off the card.

It’s time for another Timeless Tuesday challenge. Our hostess is Tammy and she asked us to be inspired by country living. I read country, pulled out the darling flower print from October Afternoon Sidewalks Paper and worked from there.

A 3 1/4″ x 3 1/2″ piece of gingham paper from the Sidewalks paper was adhered over a 3 1/2″ x 6″ piece from the same paper pack. The bottom corners were rounded and all the edges were sanded. A paper doily was adhered to the left hand side and the edges of the paper were stitched.

A sentiment from Life Lines was stamped in  Rich Cocoa Memento Ink on a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with an Ornate Artisan Tags & Accent die.  The center of the panel was sponged with Shabby Shutters Distress ink. Seam binding was tied around the paper before the sentiment panel was adhered over the ribbon and paper doily with dimensionals.

A solid butterfly was cut and embossed with a Wonderful Wings die and topped with an outline butterfly cut and embossed out of Solar White cardstock. The butterfly was topped with rhinestones from a Brown Finesse Rhinestone swirl and adhered slightly to the right of the sentiment panel. Part of that brown Finesse swirl was adhered to the upper left side of the sentiment. The layers were adhered to the card base, a 3 1/2″ x 12″ piece of white cardstock, folded in half.

Today’s hostess is Mona. She challenged us to create a corner bookmark. I hadn’t made one of those since I wrote the tutorial. With me buying all my books on Kindle now, I don’t usually have books laying around. But…. I do have magazines I can use them for. And since it’s for a magazine, I don’t have to worry about making it not bulky so it doesn’t hurt the book pages. 🙂

I couldn’t help myself. I had to use the Rose from A Year in Flowers 2 again. I LOVE that image. I stamped it several timed in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. They were colored with Copic Markers (Roses: R00, R01, R02, R05   Leaves: G40, G43, G46), cut out and layered.  A piece of white cardstock was cut with a Standard Circle Nestabilities die and embossed with the new Elegance M-Bossibilities folder. The circle was stitched to a piece of Kraft cardstock, cut and embossed with a Beaded Circle Nestabilities die. The rose layers were adhered slightly to the lower right of the circles.

My bookmark base was created out of a 4″ square of Neenah Solar White cardstock. It was scored and the bottom edge was cut and embossed with the Eyelet Borderabilities die. The edges of a 1 1/4″ x 4″ piece of My Mind’s Eye Follow Your Heart Be Happy paper patterned paper were sanded, stitched and adhered over the lower part. Seam binding was tied around it. The bow was topped with an  October Afternoon button tied on with Linen Thread.

With the same Linen thread I tied on a small tag, cut and embossed with one of the new Tailor-Made Classic Tag Template die.  The center was lightly sponged with Antique Linen Distress ink before a sentiment from Tiny Flowers and Tags. I didn’t want the seam binding in the back of the bookmark to get in the way of the magazine pages, so I taped another 1 1/4″ x 4″ strip of the same patterned paper over it on the back.

The image layers were adhered to the right of the bookmark. Baby Bling Rhinestones on the embossed part and parts of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl finish off the bookmark.

I have the pleasure to be this weeks hostess of the Timeless Tuesday challenge. Since today is Valentine’s Day I thought I challenge you to make a card for someone you love (Husband, Girlfriend, Mother, Child, Grandparent….) and add at least a splash of red to it.

For my sample I started by stamping the image from Sweet Nature in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. It was cut and embossed with a Classic Rectangle Nestabilities die. The image was masked  and the background stamp was stamped over the image in second generation Vintage Photo Distress ink. It was colored with Copic Markers ( R00, R20, R22, R24, G40, G43, G46) and the edges were sponged first with Antique Linen, then with Vintage Photo Distress ink.

The edges of the layer were stitched before Seam Binding was tied around the lower edge. It was adhered to a piece of Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with a Label 23 Nestabilities die.

A piece of Solar White cardstock was cut and embossed with one of the new Classic Tag Template dies. The center was sponged with Antique Linen, then a flower image from Tiny Flowers and Tags was stamped over it with the same ink. A sentiment from the same set was stamped in the center with Tuxedo Black Ink. The tag was tied to a piece of Linen Thread that was used to top the bow with a button.

The edge of three pieces of the new My Mind’s Eye Follow Your Heart Be Happy paper were sanded, then stitched together to form a 4 1/16″ x 5 5/16″ layer. White Crochet Lace was taped around the horizontal strip before everything was adhered to the card base, a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Solar White cardstock, folded in half. Rhinestones from the 72 Count Rhinestone pack and part of a Finesse Swirl finish off the card.
