New Flourishes Stamp Set For Me

I purchased two new Flourishes stamp sets, Country Charm Labels and Country Charm Borders (and a few others too), a few months ago and finally made time to use them..  :-)  These are fun stamps!! Above is my result!

I stamped the label and 3 borders with Momento Bamboo Green ink on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, painted the little flowers with Twinkling H2O's Cherry Sorbet, using a Niji waterbrush, and cut them out.  One border is for the inside of my card.  I also stamped the envelope bottom with a border too.

I stamped the sentiment, from Impression Obsession's All Occasion I, on the label with Momento Tuxedo Black. flipped it over and embossed the edges on a Pergamano cushion with a stylus.  The white doily die cut is from Martha Stewart Doily Lace Shimmer Die Cuts.  The scalloped edge is from Spellbinder's Scalloped Circles Large cut from Stardream Chiara Rose Quartz text weight paper (a left over and my "GOING GREEN contribution).  The doily was mounted on the scalloped circle.  The label was mounted using 1/16" pop dots on the doily.

A piece of the Neenah Classic Crest Solar White was put through the Cuttlebug using their Victoria embossing folder, and mounted on the Stardream Chiara Rose Quartz.   Two of the border were mounted on top of that as shown.

The main image with label was mounted on top of the background using 1/8" pop dots.   Mark Richards Black Onyx stickers (3mm, 4mm, and 5mm) were mounted as shown.  The Black May Arts Ribbon was placed as shown and the Bow-Easy was used for the bow.  The stick pin is a pearl boutonniere pin with Czech White heart and black onyx faceted beads.

I didn't take pictures of the inside and the envelope with the borders, but the borders were long enough for both.

Last but not least, I am so proud of me.  I finally pulled off making just one card.  You have no idea what a habit it can be to do a certain number each time.  It is so much faster this way and easier to work around doing the IO blog hop and challenge.  Happy camper here!!

You get high marks for the layout (love how you layered the doily over the scalloped circle) and the colors. VERY pretty card. No time to go back in time tonight and look at your place (it was only 85 and the weeds were annoying the heck out of me in the flower bed), but I'll be back. Oh and I DON'T have a blog. I will try and send you an email with a couple of pictures of recent cards so you can see I really am a stamper and not just a deranged hopper.

This is my favorite Flourishes set.. It was inspired by a saying I have on my blog..:) I really like your soft color with the black ribbon. Great card.

susanne said...

I love this Shirley! I love the soft feminine details!

Colleen Dietrich said...

Ahh, there's nothing like a new stamp set (or two). :) And I love my Flourishes stamps, too, even though I've had not enough time to play with them. You've done a gorgeous job with your new stamps! Love that doily die cut.

Mel M. M. McCarthy said...

Gorgeous! Love what you did with your new stamps & that pop of black ribbon is so pretty!

Elizabeth said...

Thanks for all of the posts on my blog! I do have a "follow me" on the right side of my blog but it disappears sometimes. I just reset it so you should be able to find it.

Melisa Waldorf said...

Another pretty card and the doily is just perfect for the country style of the stamps!

Girl I can't find the time to make more than one! So you were crackin' me up when I read you had finally accomplished creating just one card, teehee. My co-workers are always asking me why I don't sell them. I have to tell them I"m too slow, and by the time I create cards for magazine submissions and DT work, there is no time for extra's. Have a blessed weekend Shirley!
