Featured Stamper Blue Butterfly

Hello Everyone!!!  This week I was able to play in the Featured Stamper challenge at SCS!  The FS this week is Tenia Sanders-Nelson who has a lovely CAS style.  Now CAS as you know, is not really my thing, but I was inspired by THIS CARD and was also able to play with a new background stamp by JustRite!  :)  My Aussie friends will know that usually background stamps are too short for our standard C6 (6 x 4in) cards and we have to be a bit creative at times, well guess what??!!!  The new JustRite background stamps are 5 3/4in x 4 1/2in!!!  YAY, now a perfect length for our standard card size!!!  For my international friends, what does this mean for more having to perfectly line up your stamp to fit - you have room to play with if you are a little bit off!!!!  Happiness all round!!!  :)

Anyway, back to the card - I've used a base of blue bazzill and layered with yellow bazzill.  Next I've stamped the Scrolled Vine Background stamp by JustRite in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured the vines with Copics (B32 and Y21 & Y35 for the oval accents) and adhered this to the yellow panel.  Next I've cut some yellow with Fancy Tags 2, run some blue ribbon through it and attached it to the card.  The sentiment is from Shabby Chic Labels Four stamp set and has also been cut out with Fancy Tags 2 and I've snipped off the decorative pieces.  I've accented it with a 0.3 Multiliner using SU's Mat Pack.  Next I've stamped the butterfly from Botanical Butterflies (also on blending card) and coloured with Copics (B01, B32, B34, YR24), cut it out and glued it to the Fancy Tags panel.  Finally I added a blue bow and a couple of yellow butterflies accented with pearls.

Happy Birthday Julie!!

Today the Flourishes girls are surprising the wonderful Flourishes Co-ordinator, Julie Koerber for her birthday with a Birthday Hop!!!  Julie is such a beautiful person inside and out, and works so hard to make sure that everything behind the scenes at Flourishes works smoothly.  We are lucky to have such a wonderful lady looking after us!!!!  Happy Birthday Julie, we hope you have a super special day!!!  {{{HUGS}}}

I've used the Orchids set to celebrate Julie's day - something pretty and special - and coloured with Copics (RV91, Rv93, RV95, G40, G82, G85, G99, Y11, BG0000). The base is made up of Rich Razzleberry, white, Old Olive and MME Blush DP.  I've framed the Orchids with some pale pink bazzill and Old Olive cut with Labels 17 and finished with some White Crochet Lace, satin ribbon, a bow (of course!) and a little bit of bling!

Introducing Winter Words!

Hello Everyone!! Today the JustRite girls are introducing a new Clear set called Winter Words, choc full of sentiments, elegant as well as fun, just perfect for the festive season through to Valentine's Day!  Reminder that all our Christmas Stamps are currently on sale for 25% off (sale doesn't include Winter Words) and our Custom Dies are on sale for $19.96!
I can never have too many Christmas cards in my stash, so I teamed up the "Believe" sentiment from Winter Words with the cute stockings from Christmas Trimmings!  I began with a base of Riding Hood Red and topped with Very Vanilla (punched with MS Loop Punch) and some Cosmo Cricket DP.  Across this is a piece of ivory satin ribbon and then I've added the next panel of vanilla and more Cosmo Cricket DP.  I've stamped the stockings in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (R32, R35, R37, G21, G24, G28, YR20, YR21, YR23).  I've cut each of them out with scissors, popped them up on foam tape and framed with circle of Very Vanilla and Riding Hood Red cut with Labels 16 Nestabilities.  Next I stamped the sentiment from Winter Words onto Vanilla and cut it out with JustRite Nested Sentiment Dies and also popped it up on foam tape.  I've finished by adding a bit of bling to each of the corners!!  :)

Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Riding Hood Red, Very Vanilla, Cosmo Cricket 25 Days of Christmas DP

Beauty of a Fold

Hello Everyone!!!  With so many different folds out there try to use something other than an original card fold. You may find some examples online at the Splitcoaststampers Library.  Link up your Bringing Back Beautiful Challenge creations HERE to enter. If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword BBB16. You have until November 30th to enter! As we unveil our challenge for next month, we’ll share our True Beauties – those card makers who wowed us with this challenge! Winners will be featured on the Flourishes Blog and will receive a True Beauty blog button to display proudly on their blog!

I followed the Center Step Card tutorial on SCS for my card although I made it a little skinnier (5" x 11") so that I could use the MS punch around the page set for my feature panel!  The base is pink bazzill, then punched a piece of Very Vanilla with the Deco Fan punch around the page set.  For the other three panels I've used Vanilla and topped with pieces of MME Lost and Found DP.  I've stamped the roses from Flourishes' A Year in Flowers 2 set in Memento Tuxedo Black on X-press IT Blending Card and coloured with Copics (RV000, RV32, RV34, G20, G21, G24, G28) and then cut out with scissors.  I've popped this up on foam tape over a panel of more DP cut with Large Oval Nestabilities and matted with pink bazzill cut with Labels 18 Nestabilities.  The sentiment is from Flourishes' Zinnias set and has been stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa and cut out with Fancy Tags Shapeabilities and trimmed with scissors and matted with pink also cut with the same die.  Finally I finished with pink butterflies punched with MS butterfly punch and added several pearls.
Stamps - A Year In Flowers 2, Zinnias (Flourishes)
