Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop – Flourishing Phrases

SRC Flourishing Phrases(1)

Hi There! I’m back today with another blog post focused on the Flourishing Phrases stamp set, this time for the Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop. I do hope you’ll take a while to hop around the team – we are from all over the globe and it’s full of amazingly talented designers.

colour combo for SRC

So onto my cards for you, and I started with this colour scheme from Stampin’ Up! as my basis actually. I loved this colour combination they’d put together, featuring the Flourish Thinlit dies by coincidence, and I decided to use it as my jumping off point for my projects today:

Stampin' Up! - Flourishing Phrases - Stamp Review Crew - Valerie Moody; Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. X

I’ll be honest and say that the sentiments in the stamp set are not my usual ‘go-to’ style, but I do adore the coordinating Flourish Thinlits. I’ve stuck pretty much to the colour scheme – added my sentiments in Circle Framelits and then just played around until I found layouts I liked!

The vellum adds a soft touch to the sympathy card. I rarely make these, but feel when I do that they should be simple.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my cards today. Please carry on around the hop and check out all the other ideas – they are sure to WOW you.
