Timeless Tuesday #102


Our Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge #102 this week is being hosted by the fabulous Cindy Haffner, and this week Cindy is challenging us to use hardware on our cards! Other than brads and the occasional eyelet, hardware is something I rarely use. So this was a fun way to step outside of my box and do something a little different. Thank goodness for that long-neglected box of Stampin' Up! Hodgepodge Hardware I had sitting around... it got used today! Plus, I have had these cute library clips from SU! for a long time and never remember to use them. So today was the day!
My card uses the Cherry Blossoms stamp set. I stamped the blossoms on Kraft cardstock with Rich Cocoa Memento ink, and then colored with Copics (another outside-the-box thing for me!) After cutting out my image with a Nestabilities die, I sponged some Tattered Rose ink around the edges. The centers of my flowers are dotted with a glitter pen, too. I especially loved pairing the slight drabness of Kraft and Soft Suede cardstocks with the bright pink Melon Mambo and the yummy gingham ribbon! Love that pop of color!

Stop over at the Flourishes blog for all the challenge details and to find out how you can win $10 to spend in the Flourishes online store! Then see what the other girls have created with their hardware to inspire you!


Thank you SO much for stopping by today! Your comments are most welcome and appreciated!

I hardly ever use kraft paper but I have to admit it looks fabulous with the splash of colour. I think I might have to try this.
