Timeless Tuesday #249 – Stitching (Real of Faux)


I'm super excited to be hosting this week's Timeless Tuesday Challenge! I have been playing along with the Flourishes challenges for some time now, and I was beyond thrilled when they chose me to be one of their hostesses this month!

My challenge to you is something that I wanted to challenge myself with as well:


For my card I used the Warm Winter Wishes set stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, because we could use some warm wishes right about now in the Northeast!

My stamped image and designer paper are both mounted on card stock from the Color Made Easy – Emerald Coast Collection. I used the following Copics to color my snowman:

Hat & Scarf: BG10, BG11, BG13, BG18

Bird & Buttons: R22, R24, R27, R29

Carrot Nose: YR14, YR15, YR16

Twig arms: E33, E35, E37

Shading on snowman body and ground: C00, C3

I stitched around my middle layer with a zigzag stitch an white thread. I finished off my card by adding some Teal Blue Seam Binding Ribbon and a snowflake gem, along with some stamped snowflakes with rhinestone centers.

I hope you'll join us for this week's challenge and your chance to win! For plenty of inspiration, check out the other creations by the Timeless Tuesday Team:

I think we may be neighbors, I live on Cape Cod…..I know you’re around here somewhere. 🙂 Beautiful card, love the colors, design and layout your stitching of course and the cute snowman with his Red cardinal companion! Well done! Have a wonderful day! (Oh and have Flourishes check out your Blog name link, it wasn’t working for me. I had to ‘google’ you to get here)
