Friday Focus

Hello Blog and Stamper Friends,

Today all of the Flourishes Senior Design Team will be sharing luscious card focused on a delightful sweet  Strawberries that are in high season everywhere around here.  I love this stamps set and every time I make a card with the set it pleased me.  Today I went for a dramatic look.  What do you think of it?

I kept it simple and dramatic, though I think inviting.  The image was stamped on Flourishes Classic White and colored with these FLLC Copic Collections

I cut away most of the white around the image, then colored the background with my Copic Mulitliner and Black Copic 100.  I then glued it down to black cardstock with Zip Dry Paper Glue.  I cut into the shape using  Spellbinder die Labels Twenty.  An embossed layer of White Classic cardstock using Houndstooth folder from Couture creations.  A tiny border of red cardstock and I was a happy lady.  I used a wired ribbon from my stash and love the look.  I know that seam binding is all the craze and ties nicely, but I love great ribbons!

I will be busy packing today.  I am flying to Brisbane, Australia,  to be a part of the Scrapbook and Papercraft show ! I am a guest of X-Press Graph-X Supplies.  This will be the formal opening of Flourishes to Australia.  This will make our images  widely available in Australia.  The Scrapbook and Papercraft show will be held in Brisbane June 9-11. Stop by…I’d love to meet you!   What fun!

Thanks for stopping in to visit today.  Leave a comment…I read each and every one.
