Flourishes LC and Imagine Crafts Joint Blog Hop

flourishes_logosmaller2016-logo-1

Hello and thank you for joining Flourishes LC and Imagine Crafts for our first blog hop together!

I had the pleasure of getting to play with some awesome inks from Imagine Crafts and stamps by Flourishes LC and I have to say, it was a lot of fun!

Without further ado, here is what I came up with…

The main image, from Flourishes LC’s Harp Stamp Set was stamped onto patterned paper using Delicata Metallic Ink in Copper. I just love the effect that this lustrous metallic ink creates! The ‘joy’ sentiment (from an older Flourishes Christmas Stamp Set) was stamped onto the patterned paper using Memento Ink in Rhubarb Stalk. Next, I inked the edges of the patterned paper background using VersaMagic ink in Aegean Blue to add a little interest and make this layer stand out from the background. This was then layered over a doily and some more patterned papers. To finish it all off, I added some cream and gold bakers twine and a few gold glitter enamel dots.

Flourishes Free For All Friday – Rustic Christmas

Hello, everyone!

Today I’m here with a Free For All Friday post for Flourishes. I decided to go for a rustic Christmas look using the Harp stamp set.

Here is what I came up with:

RusticChristmas-3-edited

I heat-embossed the harp image using Stampendous Aged Embossing Powder in Ivory onto a woodgrain patterned paper. This embossing powder gives a very cool aged or vintage effect as it has a varied texture (fine to chunky) and also has some chunky gold embossing powder and glitter in it. After embossing the image, I sprinkled some of the embossing powder onto the surrounding patterned paper to add some white flecks. It helps to apply the heat from the underside of the card stock instead of from above as this can blow the embossing powder right off of the paper! This is especially helpful with chunky embossing powders. Next, I embellished with some gold and ivory baker’s twine, a small die-cut tag, and some enamel dots. The tag was attached with gold twine. The sentiment is from the Poinsettia stamp set which is currently on SALE in the store for only $10!
Well, that’s all I have to share with you, today, folks.

Thank you so much for stopping by – I hope you enjoyed your stay!

Flourishes August Release Day 3 – Harp

Hello and welcome to Day 3 of the Flourishes LC Release for August!

If you have arrived from Nancy’s Blog, then you are in the right place. If not, please see the Blog Hop List below to start from the beginning.

Today, we are showcasing a new stamp set called Harp, another beautiful Christmas stamp set designed by Lauren Pope.

Here is what I came up with:

Are you starting to see a theme, here? I approached this release with a certain theme in mind. I’ve stuck to heat-embossing the images in gold and using a cream, kraft, and red colour them. It just seemed to work for me with the images. Once the image was heat-embossed onto the cream coloured card stock, I cut the image out using a square Spellbinders die and matted that overtop of another Spellbinders die-cut. The image was then mounted on some patterned papers from Teresa Collins and embellished with sequins, some cream and gold baker’s twine, and a cute little sentiment tag (the sentiment is from the Flourishes Poinsettia stamp set which is on SALE and the die is from Spellbinders).
