Are you ready for another fun-filled Flourishes' Noon Time challenge for their June release? Well get ready to get your fingers inky because if you play along, you could win all three of our new stamp sets this month! All you need to do is take the…..

HOW TO PLAY: To play in the “Arts and Letters” challenge, all you need to do is just do what the title suggests — create Art... with Letters! Use a letter as a focal point in your card or creation and you will be in the running! If you upload to a Splitcoaststampers gallery, please use the keyword FLLCJUNRW2. Entries must be in before Friday, June 15th at 5PM EST. To enter, make sure you link up your creation below using the Inlinkz widget!

On to my creation!

For my card, I wanted to try to use the Letters in Blossom set with its sister set called Summer Blossoms. I stamped the brackets from the set to kind of "frame" my letter with Tuxedo Black ink on Flourishes Classic White and colored with a mix of Copic markers.  I also cut out both the letter and the image with a Spellbinders Classic Circle die and before I took the die off - I sponged on some Spun Sugar Distress ink. Add some stitching, some crochet lace, a fun dash of seam binding ribbon (Flourishes will soon be carrying this!) and a pearl and .... ta da! I made this one for my darling mom a.k.a. the Rubber Maid and will be sharing with her soon!

Here's a close up to peek at!

What a lovely card. I really like the way you combined the two sets!

Amanda said...

I love how you used your combined stamp sets!! I mean, why didn't I think of trying that? Your flowers just pop off the paper and I love, love how you placed your monogram letter in the middle of them! Again, Genius :)
