Open Seasame - Flourishes Timeless Tuesday June Sneaky Peek



Hi all and welcome to day 1 of Flourishes fabulous sneak peeks and PLUS you'll get an opportunity to WIN our entire new June release just by playing along!  For the remainder of this week we will be sharing our newest stamp sets with you!  Aren't you excited?!  I sure am!


Since Sneak Peek Day 1 overlaps with the Timeless Tuesday Challenge, we have some amazing projects showcasing our newest beautiful floral stamp set by Marcella Hawley today...





This stunning new stamp set features a glorious spray of wildflowers along with some wonderfully heartfelt sentiments.  It will be a 'must-have' on your shopping list this week!

For this challenge, create a card or project that moves or opens in a non-traditional manner (FTTC224)!  In other words, create a card that doesn't just open normally.  Maybe it has a third panel like a tri-fold card or it has a greeting tag that pops up when you pull a ribbon!

For my card, I used the technique Center Step card which you can find the instruction link below. 

Here is a closer look of the side:



The base is Flourishes Color Made Easy paper collection- Emerald Coast. I stamped the image with Memento Black and colored it in with Copics before fussy cutting around it. (I forgot to pre-cut on my Silhouette...) I did use the Silhouette file for the smaller butterfly on the side which is also colored in with Copics.  I popped up the image in the center over some dp from MME collection Indie Chic.  I finished off the card with some ribbon and the sentiment stamped and punched out using my SU! small oval punch. Two self adhesive pearls from Kaisercraft was used on the corner. Here are the Copic collections used among a few single stragglers :




There are lots of fun tutorials you can try out.  Here are just a few examples of some great card tutorials that will fit perfectly for this week's challenge:
