Timeless Treasures Simple Cards--Really they Are!

Today is my first Monday since the Timeless Treasures Blog Hop to showcase a couple of cards showing off Theresa Momber's awesome new set called Timeless Treasures. Timeless Treasures is available at GinaK Designs.
My tag card isn't quite as grungy as I sometimes get but I think it turned out pretty cool:

A little lace, a little silver cord, 3 brads and you have a quick and easy card that even for me only took about 20 minutes to make ( I am slowwwww) This could be used as a card or to add to a scrapbook page with some special "Treasured" pictures. The pocket watch is stamped all over the bottom purple layer and the hour glass is stamped all over the brownish green layer.

My second card is a little more elegant but still simple and quick to make:

Lots of die cuts used to make this card and that is what makes it so quick. The front image is a beautiful sentiment included in Theresa's set that was stamped on a white label cut from a Quikutz die. That is layered over a Top Note die . All layers were sponged with Corcord Grape Tim Holtz Distress Ink and then I used my favorite faux cracked paint stamp that is from the Floral Frenzy Bold Flowers set from the first StampTV kit. The cracked paint stamp was inked with Momento London Fog ink.

I added a ribbon and 6 half pearls as the only embellishments because the card was really busy enough already!!!

If you arrived here from Theresa's blog you saw the scrapbook page that I did of my grandparents wedding photo. I thought that Tiimeless Treasures stamps added so much to the total image that I wanted to reflect in the beauty of their time.

See you next Monday witih another project using Timeless Treasures. Thanks for stopping by and Thank you Theresa for creating this wonderful stamp set for me to play with!!!

Have a great day. I am off to Jury Selection... the only time I hope someone doesn't like me :)
