Top Tip Tuesday Challenge-Three of...

Hi everyone!  Hope your week is going well.  

We want to introduce you to a new challenge at Top Tip Tuesday!    This week Samantha is hostessing and we would like you to use 3 of something on your creation.  This leaves things wide open, right?  Can't wait to see what you come up with for this challenge.

With an awesome prize:

 I made a card with 3 vintage roses.  Love this set from Altenew (one of my new favorite stamp companies!).  This is a multistep stamp set called Vintage Roses.  I actually used the "stamping off " method and only used 2 colors of ink for the flowers.  I think that would be my tip for this week.  I was surprised at all the variations of color this provided without a lot of $$$.

I haven't done a grungy card for awhile so I got out my beloved kraft cardstock, distress inks and vintage sheet music and put this together.  I added a few SU! pearls and a SU! sentiment to finish this card off.  Unfortunately, I will be using it as a sympathy card for a dear friend.

If you didn't come here from the blog, you're going to want to head here to check out what my teamies have created, such a bunch of talented women!  You can also find further details about the challenges and how to become a guest designer.

Thanks for stopping in.  I love that you take the time to look.  



  1. Love your card the musical background is really crisp and swoon over those roses <3

  2. Absolutely delightful - I love the prettiness of the rose against the more grungy Kraft and music paper and the scattered pearls are just perfect :-)

    Big hugs, Kat xx
