Timeless Tuesday ~ All That Glitters!

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I hope your week has had a happy beginning and just keeps getting better and better!  Now let's see what the newest Flourishes' "Timeless Tuesday Challenge" has in store for us this week...

This week our lovely hostess Broni has an awesome challenge for us.  She is challenging you to create a card or project (FTTC209) using something that sparkles or shines!!  Easy peasy right!!!

I began creating this week by grabbing some cool cardstock that I've had in my stash that I just never knew what I was going to do with.  It's a cardstock with a LOT of sparkle!  You can see it below.  I was prepping it for stamping using my Perfect Printing Pouch.

Here is my first card...

Teal Damask
For this card, I grabbed my "Fanciful Flourishes" stamp set, my Versamark ink pad and my black embossing powder and stamped my damask pattern all over my sparkly cardstock.  I created a double mat for my damask paper using the Flourishes "Color Made Easy" cardstock from the Emerald Coast collection using the medium and dark tones of the teals.  All of my card bases were created using Flourishes Classic Black Cardstock.

I wrapped some gorgeous Flourishes "Sheer Line Edge Teal and White Ribbon" around my card front and tied a pretty bow with some of our silver metallic string.  I added a super sparkly "well-deservedly" named "Sparklet" in crystal with a fun pin from my stash.

I wanted to make a card set, so I created another similar card in tones of red.

Crimson Damask

I created the damask focal paper using the same technique as my teal version except I flipped my damask stamp from the "Fanciful Flourishes" stamp set in reverse for the outer stamped images.

I finished off my card by wrapping my card front with the Flourishes "Color Made Easy" ribbon collection, "Poppy - Basque Red" and the same silver metallic string. I again added a fabulous crystal coloured "Sparklet" to my bow and two simple heart pins.

Instead of some die cut layers at the bottom of my card this time, I stamped the "hello friend" sentiment from the "Inside & Out: Hello" stamp set using Versamark ink and silver embossing powder.


Come along and play with us this week!  Let's see a little SPARKLE on your cards and projects.  Grab some pretty mists, try a sparkly brad or two or even try some cool glitter!  Link up your creations to the Flourishes blog for a chance at winning a little guilt free shopping!
