Stampin' Up! Flowering Flourishes: Retiring Stamp Blog Hop

Good morning!  Happy to part of Amy's Inkin' Krew Retiring Stamp Set Blog Hop today.  I am featuring the Flowering Flourishes stamp set.

But, guess what?  I am also featuring some other retiring product, such as the Mosaic Textured Impressions Folder and the Florals Framelits Collection.

About This Card

To create the flourish, I used 2 markers: Crumb Cake and Soft Suede.  I colored the stamp with Crumb Cake marker and then used the Soft Suede on the flowers.

The paper used is Sahara Sand, Very Vanilla, and Soft Suede. The card base is embossed with the Mosaic Textured Impressions Folder.

The flower was created with the Florals Framelits. However I did stamp the Flourish on Very Vanilla before die-cutting.

The focal panel is matted with a 1/8 inch using Soft Suede paper. Adhered with SNAIL adhesive.  Then wrapped a small piece of Tip Top Taupe ribbon on the left side.

Then adhered to the card base with SNAIL as well.  The flower is adhered using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Did you notice...there are more flowers than what is typically with that flourish... I stamped on scrap paper (using the same Marker technique), cut them out, and adhered (with Stampin' Dimensionals).

Love the flourish on this card, subtle, subdued but elegant!
