Timeless Tuesday - Make 'em Mini!

Howdy all!  It's Tuesday... my favourite day of the week!  Welcome to the newest Timeless Tuesday Challenge for Flourshes!

This week our hostess is the lovely Jenny Gropp!  This week Jenny is challenging us to create...

a minimum of three mini cards 
(approximately 3x3 - but as long as they are smaller than an A2 card, that's fine too!)  
(FTTC229)

I literally came back from vacation late Sunday night and didn't find my mojo until late Monday night so I had to find a quick and easy design for my three 3.5x3.5 cards.

I started off by creating square card bases from Flourishes Classic Black Cardstock.
Then I began to build my mini cards.  For the first one, I cut a square of Desert Marigold cardstock from the "Sunflower" Color Made Easy paper collection.  I then die cut a smaller more detailed square of African Daisy and backed it with a piece of purple patterned paper.

I stamped one of our glorious dahlia blooms from the new "Dahlias" stamp set onto Flourishes Classic White Cardstock and coloured it in using the following Copic Collection

For the second one, I cut a square of Tangy Taffy cardstock from the "Candy Pink" Color Made Easy paper collection.  I then die cut a smaller more detailed square of Sweet Tart cardstock and backed it with a piece of bright yellow patterned paper.



I stamped the dahlia bloom again from the new "Dahlias" stamp set and coloured it in using the following Copic Collection:

For my final card, I cut a square of Bouquet cardstock from the "Crocus" Color Made Easy paper collection.  I then die cut a smaller more detailed square of Snap Dragon cardstock and backed it with a piece of fun pink patterned paper.
I stamped the dahlia bloom once again from the "Dahlias" stamp set and coloured it in using the following Copic Collection:

I hope this inspires you to create some mini cards along with us this week!  But before you do, please take a moment and leave a comment and then check out my fellow designer creations...
Thanks for stopping by!  Can't wait to see what you create for this week's challenge!

  3. Stunning set of cards! It's hard to come back from vacation and switch gears, isn't it? We had 2 trips this summer and it took me about a week before my mojo started flowing after each trip. You are pretty amazing, it only took you 24 hours! The designs and colors are gorgeous!
