Signs of Spring

Hello Blog Friends,

Today I am joining with the Flourishes Design Team in a focus of our set Signs of Spring.  I have chosen to keep it simple with lots of white space.  Here’s my card.  It measures 4 1/2″ by 7″.

By keeping this simple, the card went together in the wink of an eye.  I cut my Classic white cardstock to size, then embossed with Couture Creations folder Tied Together.  I just love these folders, they emboss so deeply.  I then did the bottom with EK Success punch, Flower and Flourish.  The image was stamped again onto Classic white cardstock and colored with these Flourishes Copic color collections.




The sentiment was stamped in black Memento Ink.  Tiny rhinestones add just a touch of bling.


Thanks for stopping in today.  Leave me a note as I love reading your comments.

Free For All Friday

Hello Blog Friends,

Today is a “Free For All” for the Flourishes design team.  I’m playing along and had a fun card to make for a young lady’s birthday.  Since she is in her early twenties (remember those days??),  so  I wanted to keep it young and fresh looking.  What could be fresher that snow drops pushing through the cold earth to nod their heads to a new spring full of life.  So naturally I chose Snow Drops elements from Flourishes newest release Botanical Bookplates Vol 1.  That Vol.1 is a good indication that more will follow (wink, wink).

Here is my card  for Katlyn.

The supplies I used are:

Flourishes Classic white card stock, a celery green card stock, a sheet of designer paper by Basic Grey, Lemonade Paper Pad.  A Martha Stewart punch was used  along each sides using the tips Cindy Lawrence showed us on Create With Me Monday.  I added a simple bow of Faux Suede Green Ribbon and a few tiny rhinestone.  The sentiment is from the same set and stamped with Memento Lilac Posies ink. The image was stamped in Memento Black and colored with the soon to be released new Flourishes Copic Collection Pistachio Greens , ummmmm yummm!

A few notes to remember, you still can join in the fun by taking part in the challenges,  finding the Mystery blogger or leaving a note to get a chance of winning some or all of this month’s release.  So leave me a comment and I’ll pass it on to the winners pot.
