Flourishing Phrases for Artisan Design Team Blog Hop!

Hi! Welcome to the Artisan Design Team blog hop – an open hop where we create whatever we like from the box of goodies Stampin’ Up! sent us. The Artisan Design Team are a group of 20 demonstrators from around the globe chosen to share their creativity with you.

I’ve been creating like a mad woman recently. I’ve lots of deadlines looming – including the one where my children break up from school for 6 weeks! Every year, I promise myself that I will be prepared, plan ahead, get organised…… and then I laugh, and laugh….. because it’s never gonna happen! However I continue to try and that’s what counts, right?

For this hop, I decided to play with the Flourish Thinlits – these are such intricate dies, so detailed and, well, just gorgeous really!

Those large leaf dies are my favourite! Leaves are great, neutral – so you can put them with all sorts of other things – such as the flowers in the set as I have – but then also use them alone for something a bit more manly too.

The Big Shot Precision Plate and Die Brush make using these intricate thinlits a breeze, so don’t forget to grab those on your next order.

I’ve paired the Flourishing Phrases stamp set with the sentiment from Birthday Blooms for a gorgeous birthday card – I’m loving it! The neutral card base really makes the green leaves POP!

Go Shopping!

I hope you’ve enjoyed my card. Please keep hopping around the rest of the team, these ladies are amazing and you’ll be blown away by their ideas.
