Flourishing Phrases 3

Hello friends and welcome to another Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team blog hop!

For our “open” week I have a simple but elegant little Thank You gift bag and matching card to share with you. Sometimes, if you need to give several gifts all at once or if you need to put one together at the last minute, it’s nice to have simple projects that go together quickly and easily but show how much you care, and this one does just that!

The beautiful floral sprig from the Flourishing  Phrases Bundle had been sitting on my work space for awhile and I was dying to create a project that made it the focal point. Then, one day as I was working on another project, the Emerald Envy pattern from the Moracan Designer Series Paper caught my eye and this project popped into my head.

For the gift sack, I used the Gift Bag Punch Board and a piece of 6″ x 12″ DSP. The handles are Thick White Baker’s Twine and the tag was made with a 1-3/4″ circle punch.

The flourishing Phrases Stamp Set comes with sentiments for five different occasions and coordinating phrases to add to the inside of your card. As I said before, it’s always nice to have projects ideas that go together quickly, and this project does just that.

Whatever the occasion, the Flourishing phrases Bundle will help you create the perfect project to show how much you care.

A Few New Favorites~ Artisan Blog Hop

Touches of Texture 3

Hello, friends, and welcome to another Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team blog hop!

This week is our “open” project and it was so much fun to dig in to some of my favorite new Stampin’ Up! products. My starting point was the flower center from the versatile and pretty Touches of Texture Stamp Set.

I stamped it in the new Flirty Flamingo on Shimmery White cardstock. Then, with my aqua painter, I pulled the color out to make petals. I also added Peekaboo Peach with my aqua painter.

After the flower dried, I turned to the gorgeous new Moroccan Designer Series paper and picked the Delightful Dijon pattern to go with it. With it’s beautiful colors and geometric patterns, this dsp is some of my favorite ever.

Another new favorite is the Flourishing Phrases Bundle. It comes with 18 stamps and 10 dies, the font is lovely and the sentiments cover a variety of needs. It is truly a must have!
