Yesterday I showed you a card on which I had used the Flourish Thinlits Dies. Did you know that there is a stamp set that compliments the dies. It is called Flourishing Phrases and that is what I used today on my card.
This is a bright and bold card that speaks summer to me. If we can't actually have summer now in Australia, then why not have a beautiful summery card to look at.
I spritzed the background in Melon Mambo and Old Olive, then sponged over it a little in the same colours because I didn't like the mottly spritzing that I got. I do that a lot, evolve the card as I make it. I don't always stick to the plan in my head. Then I stamped the large flowers and then leaves. On a seperate piece of Whisper White card stock, I stamped the Daffodil Delight flowers, cut them down and then sponged them to cover the white edges of the petals. These yellow flowers are made using the same stamp as the pink flowers, I just cut off the outer most petals. I then adhered them to the card and added White Perfect Accents to the centre of each.
The Flourishing Phrases is such a great stamp set. Not only does it have these great stamps in it, but it also has so much more. A whopping 18 stamps to be exact.
If you haven't considered these stamps, then you really need to. The sentiments cover so many occasions. Plus it comes in a bundle with the framelits for a 10% discount. Now that's a great deal.
Now I have put the details above for the clear mount stamps, as that is what I mostly what I buy. But they do come in wood mount for those who prefer that option.
And don't forget that during July you can earn vouchers to spend in August.
Here is how it works - You’ll get a $9 coupon (via email) by spending $90 in July. You can use the coupons in August on any item you want! The best part is that you can earn another coupon for every $90 you spend.
Thanks for dropping by.
Have a great day.
