Flourishes Free for All Friday Blog Hop – Red as Poppies

Hi everyone,

Welcome to the Flourishes Friday Blog Hop. If you have arrived from Linda’s blog, then you are in the right place. If not, please head on over to the Flourishes Blog to start from the beginning.

I hope all of you in the United States had a wonderful Thanksgiving, yesterday, with your loved ones.

This week, I have challenged the team to make their projects Red as Poppies in honour of Veteran’s Day or Remembrance Day, here, in Canada, which we observed two weeks ago.

Let’s take a look at what I came up with:

I used the poppy image from Year in Flowers 2. This image was coloured using Copic Markers and then cut-out using Flourishes Tailor-Made Classic Hourglass Die Set (a personal favourite). The sentiment is from Bushel of Thanks. This was then mounted over some adorable polkadot patterned paper by October Afternoon. Next, I matted this in black and attached it to my card base. Finally, I embellished my card very simply using some black enamel dots and some metallic tinsel cord (another favourite).

Flourishes Friday Blog Hop – Patterned Paper

Hello everyone,

Welcome to the Flourishes Friday Blog Hop. If you have arrived from Linda’s blog, then you are in the right place. If not, please head on over to the Flourishes Blog to start from the beginning.

First, I’d like to welcome Barb Thompson to the Flourishes Family! Barb has joined us on the Senior Design Team and I can’t wait to see what she creates using Flourishes stamps!

This week, Tricia has challenged the team to use patterned paper.

Well, to be honest…I very rarely make a card without using patterned paper so, this was a breeze for me! I used Bushel of Thanks, again…it’s a new favourite and up here in Canada, our Thanksgiving is this coming Monday so, it seemed appropriate.
Let’s take a look at what I made:

I think it’s safe to say that I have found a new favourite in Bushel of Thanks! I love fall and this set that Bev has designed for Flourishes is simply gorgeous! I stamped the image in memento ink and coloured it in using Copic Markers. Since this card is quite simple, I think the rest is pretty self-explanatory so, I will not get into all of the details on how it was made.

Flourishes Friday Blog Hop – Fall Colours

Hello everyone,

Welcome to the Flourishes Friday Blog Hop. This week, Bev has challenged the team to use Fall Colours.

If you have arrived from Linda’s blog, then you are in the right place. If not, please head on over to the Flourishes Blog to start from the beginning.

Well, I don’t know about you but, I LOVE fall colours and I had the perfect stamp set to use for this challenge, Bushel of Thanks!
Let’s take a look at what I made:

I stamped the image onto Flourishes Classic White Card Stock using black ink then coloured the image using Copic markers and fussy-cut the image out. I then die-cut a brown plaid mat using Flourishes Tailor-made Perfectly Pierced Victorian Oval die and wrapped some cream and gold twine around the mat a few times before tying it in a bow. I then popped the main image up onto the mat using foam tape. Next, I stamped the sentiment and cut out the words in strips which were attached so that they were peeking out from behind the maid image. Last, I popped this up onto a plaid background which had been matted using the brown plaid patterned paper (leaving a 1/16th” border) and mounted it onto a white card base.
