Timeless Tuesday Challenge # 136

Flourishes hostess for this week is Betty, and she is challenging us to make a card that is All Dolled Up. A real girly card. For my card this week I used for the base Gina K pure luxury white. I used PTI lavendar moon for the bottom layer and DCWV design paper from the Mariposa stack. The image is from Flourishes Zinnia stamp set and I colored it with Copic markers. I cut it out with my Grand Caliber using a Spellbinders classic squares and Fleur De Lis squares. I added a ribbon, some pearls and rhinestones, and a sentiment from Flourishes Life Lines. I forgot to mention I used some Stickles and Diamond Glaze also on the image. Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day.

Timeless Tuesday Challenge # 135

For this weeks challenge, Flourishes hostess, Beate, asked that we make a shaped card. I chose to use Spellbinders Grand Labels One for my card. I used die number two ( one being the smallest) on Gina K Chocolate Brown cs for the base. The design paper is from the Pinkpaislee stack, 365 degrees, and was cut from die number two of the Grand label one set. I bunched lace from my stash across the dsp, and added a piece of brown ribbon also from my stash on top of the lace. For my focal point I chose an image from the Flourishes stamp set Zinnias, that was colored with Copic markers, cut out with Spellbinders Beaded Ovals, and sponged with Rangers Tea Dye Distress ink. I added flowers from Prima that I sprayed with Copic marker # E31, and added sprigs from a Martha Stewart punch. A birthday sentiment from the PTI stamp set, Watercolor Trio, was punched out with Spellbinders petite ovals, also sponged, and rhinestones and pearls from Queen & Co were added to the card. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!
