Stampin’ Up! Flourishing Phrases Just a Note

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a sketch challenge.  Happy hopping!

My card starts off with Gorgeous Grape cardstock.  I then matted a panel of Whisper White cardstock on Soft Sea Foam cardstock.

I used the Flourish Thinlits to cut out various flowers and leaves from Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather, Petal Pink, and Soft Sea Foam cardstock.

I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut out a stitched circle from Highland Heather cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with white embossing powder, and heat set it.

Behind the sentiment I adhered a pattern from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper and wound around some Silver Thread and then adhered it all down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I also added a few pearls around the card to finish it off.

Enjoy!

Flourishing Phrases – Just a Note

My card developed first because I knew I wanted to participate in the challenge over at Global Design Project this week.  It’s a RAK challenge – Random Acts of Kindness.  These are my FAVORITE cards!  I love to send a card just because, when the person doesn’t expect it, when it’s purpose is to uplift and encourage and send some love.

Then I needed some layout inspiration, so I went for The Paper Players challenge.

My card starts with a pattern from the Blooms & Bliss DSP layered on Sweet Sugarplum.  Then I took another pattern from the same DSP and layered it on Blushing Bride.

I then used the Flourishing Phrases bundle to cut out a Blushing Bride large flower and three leaves to layer over the DSP.

I stamped probably one of my favorite sentiments of all time, “Just a Note,” in Rich Razzleberry on Blushing Bride and adhered it below the flower.  I added a few rhinestones throughout the card to add a little bling.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Flourishing Phrases

For today’s card I’m combing the color challenge over at TGIF Challenges with the sketch challenge over at CAS(E) this Sketch!

CTS_188 TGIF September 2016 Challenges-003

My card starts off with Sweet Sugarplum as its base.  I then used a pattern from the Blooms & Bliss DSP and layered it over some Rich Razzleberry.

Flourishing Phrases - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

Before adhering the patterned paper, I cut out three leaves in Rich Razzleberry, Sweet Sugarplum, and Sahara Sand.  When I adhered them, I only glued down the bottom of the stem.  I really wanted the leaves to look loose and not tied down.

Flourishing Phrases - Stamp It Up With Jaimie - Stampin Up

Next I created the sentiment by stamping it in Rich Razzleberry on Crumb Cake and adding a few smaller flowers and leaves around it.

Enjoy!

Flourishing Phrases – Spotlight

I had so much fun the other day with the Spotlight Technique with this  card, I decided to try it again.

Flourishing Phrases - Stamp It Up With JaimieI started with Dapper Denim as my base card and layered it with Whisper White to stamp on.

Flourishing Phrases - Stamp It Up With Jaimie - Stampin Up

To create the Spotlight Technique, I first stamped the flower in Smoky Slate.  I then separately stamped it in Dapper Denim.  I selected two different sized circles from the Layering Circles and cut them out and layered them over the coordinating sized scallop in Dapper Denim.  I tried as best I could to place the Dapper Denim circles over the Smoky Slate flower where it belonged.

I then added a Dapper Denim Rouched bow and a simple sentiment of Hello from the Flourishing Phrases Bundle to finish it off.

Enjoy!
