Hello Stamping friends, This is the last call for you to send me a link to your blog parade. I am putting the parade together and I want you to be a part of this Mardi Gras type parade. All you have to do is send (firstname.lastname@example.org) me your name with a hyperlink to strut your stuff for this fun day. The card(s) may be one you have made or a new one with some of your goodies from our Gamblers sale. The more the better and merrier. Like the folks along the Mardi Gras parades shout, “Throw me something!”…well, we will be all along the”streets” in blog land and you can toss your creation to the other stampers . It will be fun to see what you have made. Please only use Flourishes stamps for your cards. Send me your link today and join the fun! I wish we were in my home town (Houma, LA) or the Cresent city New Orleans and enjoying a great buffet of red or white beans with rice or a great seafood gumbo.

Cheryl here! I’m your hostess for this week’s Timeless Tuesday Challenge, and I wanted to give everyone a super easy challenge to work with…
So, here it is…< = >! Or, in non-math terms, Less = More! What does that mean, you ask? Well, simply create a card with a stamped image, but NO coloring! It doesn’t have to be a CAS card, but if you really want to embrace the < = > theory, go for it!
For my project, I decided to make a boxed set of cards using some of my favorite Flourishes floral images. And, nothing shows off an image like white on kraft!
I used Flourishes Classic Kraft cardstock, stamped the images with white pigment ink, then heat embossed large floral images from the Gerber Daisy, Sweet Peas, and Picking Wildflowers stamp sets. In the lower right corner, I stamped sentiments with Versamark ink, then heat embossed them in blue, pink, and yellow embossing powders. The sentiments came from the Sweet Peas, Picking Wildflowers and Butterflies & Blossoms stamp sets. After cutting the upper right corner at an angle, I sponged Walnut Stain Distress Ink over the sentiments, up the right side of the card, and in the upper left corner.
On the inside, I used coordinating, but smaller, floral images, stamped in Versamark ink, but I didn’t emboss them. The Picking Wildflowers set doesn’t have a smaller image, but the Garden Picks set has a wildflower image that worked great with it.
To finish off my set, I made a box using my envelope punch board. Jennifer McGuire has a great tutorial on how to do this. Before assembling it, I heat embossed the Sweet Pea image on the flap and on the back side. Then, tied it up with a polka dot ribbon. Less=More=Easy Peasy! And, I like that equation!
How about you? Come play along!
