Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #138

 Be inspired by the photo below for your creation… maybe it’s the clean lines of the porch steps, the variety of colors, the beautiful flowers… whatever you take from the photo, be inspired! Here is my take on the photo. I made this little treat holder that I found the instructions here; http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/treatboxcard/
I used Early Espresso for the base and used BoBunny 's Forever Fall Collection for the rest of the papers. I cut out the tag using a Sizzix die called Scalloped Tag using More Mustard paper by Stampin'Up then I cut paper called 'Forever Foliage' a little smaller than the tag so it fit inside the cut lines so when I ran it thru it would be a bit smaller than the More Mustard tag. I cut out a label using Spellbinders Label Nine using Tempting Turquoise paper by Stampin'Up. I ran part of tag thru a Sizzix embossing folder called 'Birds & Wreath' set. I applied a glue pen to the raised edges and then applied Lucky Penny Designer Foils by Clearsnap. I stamped saying  from the set called 'Falling Leaves' by Flourishes using black crafter's ink by Clearsnap and emboss using detail black by Ranger. Sponged the following colors: Deep Lagoon, Chestnut Brown and Burnt Sienna Fluid Chalk by Clearsnap. Applied Pumpkin Smooch ink along the edge. Used quilted satin Early Espresso ribbon by Stampin'Up plus orange/red ribbon by May Arts for the tag. I cut paper 'Forever Fall Stripe' for the inside of the holder where the tag fits. I also cut 'Forever Fall' and used the backside of the paper for the front of the tag holder. I cut out the sunflower from Spellbinders Sunflower set Two using brown glitter paper and paper from BoBunny 'Forever Fall'. Used a Summer Sun corduroy button that Stampin'Up used to sell. I stamped two open leaves from the set called 'Falling Leaves' by Flourishes using Archival ink by Ranger and colored them by using US ArtQuest mica paints. Cut them out and layered them in behind the sunflower. Stamped saying 'Happy Holidays' from the set called 'Dove & Holly' by Flourishes using black crafter's ink by Clearsnap and emboss using detail black by Ranger. Cut this out twice by using Spellbinders 'Grommet Tags' and Early Espresso paper for one and shimmery white for the other. Sponged the following colors: Deep Lagoon, Chestnut Brown and Burnt Sienna Fluid Chalk by Clearsnap. Added 2 turquoise basic pearls as shown.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone, It's Thanksgiving here in Canada!!!
