Happy Birthday Flourishes!



Flourishes is lighting the candles and getting ready to sing to honor their fourth birthday! And, as a way to celebrate, I’m happy to say I was hand-picked to help them have a bit of a party as a designer for their customer appreciation hop! The only challenge here was to create a card or project using my favorite Flourishes stamp set. Read on – I’ll tell you how you can win some Flourishes goodies too!

When I heard I would have to pick my favorite Flourishes stamp, I kind of groaned.  I have many Flourishes favorites, so I worked in a couple here.  For my main image, I inked up the lavender from Fine Herbs in a couple of ink colors and stamped it on my tag.  The herbs in this set are wonderful.  In the summertime, my main job is the garden.  The only part of the garden that my husband doesn't touch is my herb garden.  I haven't been able to talk him into lavender yet...but I will.  My next favorite set is Tag Lines.  I couldn't bear to cover up that beautiful lavender image, so I stamped my sentiment from on a piece of vellum.  Did you know that this set has 19 little pieces to make the most useful sentiments?  I use this set all the time!  And...it's totally affordable!

Flourishes is always so generous and today's hop is no exception!  I'll bet you want to know what you win? Well, take a peek at this fun and festive blog candy!

I LOVE your card! My herb garden was my first garden, and I learned so much way back then. Thanks for the tip about the sentiment set; being on a budget, I need to get the most for my dollars spent, and I love the mixed fonts on that one. Thanks for the inspiration!

What a beautiful clean card! I love the pop of color from the lavender and the sentiment on vellum! That reminds me, I better get up to the lavender farms before the season is over!

Your card is gorgeous I'm glad you used vellum for the sentiment..yor're right it would be a shame to cover up the marvelous coloring that you did.
