This pretty card is from Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set.I was going through my stamp sets yesterday, and thought OH MY GOODNESS! I have a lot of stamp sets that I need to use before they retire. Some of them I have used once or twice.Some of them more often for workshops, and then ssshhhh……… some of them not at all. I have made a decision to use them all in upcoming posts.
I love stamp sets that lend themselves to different occasions. Flourishing Phrases is a perfect example of flexible. Not only that, but it also has a co-ordinating thinlit die. The Flourish thinlit increases the variety of cards you can do. Tomorrow I will upload a couple more samples so you can get an idea of what I mean.
To give this card a bit more dimension, I used the Woodgrain Embossing Folder. By using the embossing folder, I felt it softened the whole feel of the card, and in my mind earthy woodgrain matched better with floral, rather than stark white background. That is just my opinion of course, but feel free to tell me what you think. If you have this stamp set, do a card and email it to me. I would love to feature it!
The colours used for this project were Watermelon wonder, Elegant Eggplant, Daffodil Delight and Mint Macaron. I used dimensionals to pop up one of the flowers, as well as the greeting. Both the Flourishing Phrases stamp set, and the Flourish thinlit die are available in the 2016 – 2017 Stampin Up Idea Book & Catalog. If you purchase the two of them together, you can save 10%.
