Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC24)!

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC24)!!!! Thanks so much to all of you who participated in last week's cut it out and pop it up challenge! Keep reading to find out who won!

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 Kimberly Crawford is our host. Kimberly is challenging us to make tags! Tags are hot and they are everywhere. Tags come in all shapes and sizes and the skies the limit when it comes to decorating and accessorizing. Whether you are making a stand alone tag or one to add to a gift or package, we can not wait to see what you create. So, TAG along with us this week, it will be fun!!!

Let's go see what the blog design team has tagged for you this week!!!

Up first this week is our challenge host, Kimberly Crawford. Kimberly is using the newly released Strawberries stamp set. I am not sure which is more wonderful, the basket of fresh juicy strawberries or the beautifully colored strawberry tag! Kim used Flourishes Copic Color Collections in Spring Greens and Poppy. Love how Kim create a double tag to include a sentiment. Wonderful tag and strawberry gift-giving idea!!! Fabulously done, Kim!!!

Next is, Silke Ledlow . Silke is using the newly released Strawberries stamp set as well. Silke is also using the Flourishes Copic Color Collections in Fields, and Poppy. Silke is showing other images in this wonderful set. The coloring and cut work detailing are just beautifully done. This set comes with some wonderful sentiments. This sentiment is just perfection for such a sweet card, too. Love the trio of color coordinated buttons. Lovely tag, Silke!!!

Next, is Betty Wright. I am using the Sweet Violets andthe newly released Strawberries stamp sets. I am using the Flourishes classic white cardstock. This cardstock is sensational for using with copics. I colored my sweet violets using the Flourishes Copic Color Collections in Crocus, Violet, and Evergreen. I am using the Strawberries set just for the sentiment on my tag. Another reason this set is just perfect whether you use the strawberries in it or not.

Next up is Cindy Haffner. Cindy is using Patriotism on Parade stamp set. I love the double tag vintage effect Cindy created with this set. Everything from the twine, star brads, texture feel, and punch detailing all just lend itself to a beautifully rendered vintage tag. Wonderfully done, Cindy!!! Please check out the Designing for a Cause Challenge to see how you can help with the Wounded Warrior Project and Cards for Heroes.

Last this week is Dee Jackson. Dee is using the newly released Strawberries set, too. Dee is using the Flourishes Classic cardstock in white. She colored the strawberries using the Flourishes Copic Color Collections. She used the Poppy, Evergreen and Daffodil color collections. Beautifully colored and designed, Dee!!!! Fantastic looking tag to go along with a wonderful treat box, Dee!!!

I am a tag lover and the DT samples are fabulous this week!! I am definately ordering the strawberry set!!

One question though - I can't find most of the Copic color sets on the Flourishes site. Only one page of combo sets show up and most of the ones mentioned in the DT samples aren't there. Are they out of stock - is that why I can't see them?

Liz Williams said...

The samples are so varied and so fun. Here is my tag:

I used this week's challenge to start thinking about Christmas tags. I need to start but as it was 90 degrees here it was hard to get in the spirit. My daughter even said you are making Christmas Tags already? But I love Flourishes beautiful Pointsettia and Boxwood set and the Evergreen in Forest of Trees.

Fonda @Southern Scraps said...

Great tags. Love the challenge. Here is mine:

Dawn Frost said...
