Pretty Flourishes

I have been on a roll lately, wanting to be creative and to share it with others.  So many of my favorite stamp sets recently retired and I was sad to see them go.  However, this little gem remained to be with us for another year.  Birthday Blossoms is a super watercolor friendly set that you can make up pretty quickly by wiping some ink randomly over the detailed line art design.  I used the Flourish Thinlits to add some pretty background texture, and cut out a scalloped circle to frame the sentiment from the Rose Wonder Stamp set.  (Also carrying over this year).  The Designer Series Papers this year are so, so beautiful.  This one is from Petal Garden, and the papers in the 2nd example are from the Whole Lot of Lovely designer papers.




So, what do you think?  I really love how these cards came out and can't wait to find a special purpose to give them to someone.  That's a goal I have this year...to share cards with friends and family to let them know that I care about them.  Why should I keep hoarding all these lovelies to myself?


A little tip when trying to adhere those detailed flourish die cuts to the card.  You can use the new Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets.  They are awesome!  You simply lay your paper on one sticky side, cut out the image and pull the other adhesive backing off and you can get a full coverage adhesive without the frustration of glues and tapes.  I am stocking up on more of that stuff!
