Flourishes New Release - FTTC143


It's that wonderful time of the month again... Flourishes New Releases! Today the Timeless Tuesday team is bringing you the first day of sneak peeks with the new Sentimental Christmas stamp set! And our Timeless Tuesday challenge today, being hosted by Mona Pendleton is to try the Double-Embossing Technique. This is a really fabulous technique that creates a real WOW factor on your card, so check out the SCS tutorial and give it a try!

I used the "Let it Snow" sentiment from the new set, along with this pair of mittens from the Warm Winter Wishes stamp set. My background was embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder (hey, that reminds me... have you seen the new Sizzix embossing folders in the Flourishes store?) on Flourishes Classic White cardstock, and I used the Labels 14 Nestabilities for my sentiment. I added some bling in the form of a rhinestone flourish, a very glittery die-cut snowflake, and the Metallic White Curling ribbon on the mittens. I also spritzed the background with some Perfect Pearls mixed with water for more shimmer and sparkle. (see the close-up below)
I used the Azure Copic collection from Flourishes to color my mittens, and my sentiment was stamped with Broken China Distress ink.


Stop around and see what the Timeless Tuesday team and a few members of the Sr. Design team have to inspire you today for this challenge, and play along! One lucky winner will get the ENTIRE NEW NOVEMBER RELEASE! And you get an extra entry if you use Flourishes stamps on your creation! Check out the Flourishes blog for all the details.
