Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge!!!

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC23)!!!! Thanks so much to all of you who participated in last week's chalk challenge. Another big thank you, too, to Linda Lucas for hosting the challenge with us last week. Keep reading to find out who won! Also, the June monthly winner is posted, too!!!

The Friends of Flourishes blog design team are bringing you exciting and different challenges each week. Everyone can PLAY and anyone can WIN! Make sure you continue reading to find out how.

This week Dee Jackson is our challenge host!!! Dee is challenging us to cut it out and pop it up!!! We are cutting out items and popping them up to add dimension and interest to our cards!!! The sky is the limit with this one. Just remember to cut it out and pop it up!!! We would love to see what you create!!!

Let's go see what the blog design team has created with the cut it out and pop it up challenge this week.


Up first this week is our challenge host, Dee Jackson. Dee is using the Waterlilies and Thank You sets. Dee is using the Flourishes Classic cardstock in white. She colored the waterlilies using the Flourishes Copic Color Collections. She used the Delphinium and Fields color groupings. I love how she used the sentiment phrase from the Thank You set and added a crisp white sheer ribbon with bow to complete her card. Great cut work detailing and dimension!!! Beautiful colors and design, Dee!!!






Up next is Kimberly Crawford. Kimberly is using Sweet Peas and Sweet Violets stamp sets. Beautiful coloring and cut work detailing, Kim. Kim stamped the image, then stamped it again, colored it with the Flourishes Copic Color Collections in Violet, Crocus, and Fields groupings. She cut out the flowers and popped them up to add dimension and detailing to the card. A few pieces of lace and gingham ribbon and the card is finished. Just gorgeous, Kim!!!






Next this week is, Silke Ledlow . Silke is using Love Nest and Home Tweet Home stamp sets. Beautiful colors and design, Silke. Silke cut out the birdcage and bird and popped them up to add dimension. I love how she scored the background panel to mimic the grid pattern in the dp she used. Silke, also used the Flourishes Copic Color Collections in Delphinium, Fields, and Poppy. Love the sweet sentiment she used from the Home Tweet Home set. This is an adorable card, Silke!!!







Next, is Betty Wright. I am using the Waterlilies and Damask stamp sets. I am using the Flourishes classic white cardstock. I colored my waterlilis using the Flourishes Copic Color Collections in Buttercup, Daffodil, and Spring Greens. I cut out the flowers and popped them up to add dimension. I just love the damask background with this beautiful waterlily. I thought it gave the look of some very elegant water swirls. I finished my card using a Spellbinders tag with grosgrain ribbon detailing.






Up last this week is Cindy Haffner. Cindy is using the City of David stamp set. Cindy used one of the solid distressed pieces of paper from the basicgray collection. She stamped the City of David image, then stamped it again. The entire city is cut out and popped up to create a wonderful dimensional scene. I love the colors as it makes it look like an evening sky. Cindy also stamped and popped up one of the sentiments in the set. Beautifully done, Cindy!!! Cindy is also reminding us that it is never to early to start working on some Christmas cards!!!

Beautiful inspiration, now don't let the title of my card scare you off this week. It's just that it is in quite a few challenges. Couldn't miss yours though.

Thank you for having me,

I LOVE this challenge. I can't live without pop dots or foam tape. Here is a card where I cut elements from the DP I was using and popped the heck out of it. 3 layers of foam tape in one spot LOL.

Some popped-up CAS chairs. I nearly opted out for leaving the centre chair NOT popped up, between the detailed cutting and getting foam tape thin enough to support the legs - but I persevered.
