Flourishing Phrases for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop



Flourishing Phrases is my pick for today’s Happy Stampers Blog Hop color challenge.  Wow, there are 18 Flourishing Phrases stamps and 10 Flourish Thinlets Dies in this new bundle package! 

Here are our colors:

Happy Stampers Color Challenge

And, here is what I created:


Flourishing Phrases


I started by stamping the floral images from Flourishing Phrases in Cucumber Crush onto a panel of Whisper White then, colored in the flowers with my Flirty Flamingo marker.  I inked up the sentiment in Basic Black and used my Stamp-a-ma-jig for the placement in the bottom corner.

Next, I stamped the large flower image from Flourishing Phrases in Flirty Flamingo onto a panel of Whisper White and fussy cut it. Then, I moved on to the Flourish Thinlets and die cut the larger flower in Flirty Flamingo, glued it to the fussy cut flower and added a Daffodil Delight Enamel.  Next, I die cut the leaves in Cucumber crush and glued them to the back of the flower.

I pulled out some Cucumber Crush 5/8 ” Mini Striped Ribbon and some Flirty Flamingo 3/8″ Ruched Ribbon and layered them on the card using Tear and Tape Adhesive.  The flower and leaves were added using dimensionals.  The whole art panel was then popped onto a panel of Cucumber Crush with dimensionals. My Cucumber Crush panel was attached to the Flirty Flamingo base with liquid glue.  To add a little more Daffodil Delight for our challenge, I created a butterfly using one of the small butterfly images from Papillon Potpourri.

I kept the inside simple and added a strip of Flirty Flamingo that was die cut from one more of the Flourish Thinlets.

Card stock cuts in inches will be at the end of the post.
