Timeless Tuesday ~ Gettin' Sentimental

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Welcome to the Timeless Tuesday challenge at Flourishes!

Today, we are ushering in this challenge because not only is Flourishes releasing a new single stamp set with a beautiful sentiment, we are helping Jan Marie, the owner of Flourishes launch her new blog! Want a peek at the new sentiment?

The stamp is called Sweetness of Friendship and it takes on the mantra of Jan Marie's new blog - a place where friends can gather to enjoy the laughter and sharing of pleasures (in creating!) The stamp set is available right now and you can check it out in the Flourishes Store right HERE!!! It's a beauty for sure!

What's even more fun? Jan Marie is giving away this stamp to the first 25 people who leave comments on today' post  over on her new blog - Jan Marie's Flourishes!!!

This week's fabulous challenge is from the very talented, Denise.  Denise has challenged us this week to create a project with the sentiment as the focus.  Here is my sentiment focused creation for this week's challenge...

Take Time

For my sentiment, I chose this beautiful verse from the Orchids stamp collection and stamped it on Flourishes Classic White cardstock using Memento "Black Tuxedo" ink.  I mounted my sentiment on one of the lovely label shaped stamps from the Country Charms stamp set stamped using Ranger's "Worn Lipstick" Distress ink..

I even used the gorgeous medallion from the Medallion Motif stamp collection to stamp on my die cut background.

Come and join us for this week's fabulous challenge.  I can't wait to see what you create!

As you make the rounds in today's Timeless Tuesday hop, you'll notice that some of the designers are using a fresh picked 123 Create Kit!

These kits have everything you need to create color coordinated cards with paper, ribbons and embellishments - all in one kit! Travel HERE to see for yourself!
