Gifts For You


Well you should have known that it wouldn't be long before I inked up some of these gorgeous new Flourishes stamps! I had a hard time choosing which one to use since I absolutely love them all!!!

The stamp set I used for this card is from the February release called All Wrapped Up . I intended to make a masculine birthday card, but the new Basic Grey Porcelain paper was calling me, so I went with a feminine card instead.

I stamped the image on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder.

The stamped image was cut out with my Spellbinders Curved Rectangles Nestabilities, then colored using Tombow (water based) markers. I stamped just the bottom package again on the corner of one of the Porcelain sheets, cut it out and adhered. The ribbon and bow were also paper pieced.

The For You tag was stamped on Spring Willow light, then cut out. The ribbon is May Arts Pink Crochet . The cardstock is Prismatics Crabapple medium and dark, and Prismatics Spring Willow light.



For the inside of the card I used Crabapple light cardstock, so it's light enough that you can write a message. The border along the bottom is a scrap of Porcelain paper from the front of the card. I then stamped another of the images from the All Wrapped Up set to finish it off.

I'm off work today for President's Day, and loving every moment of it! I hope to stamp away the day! Of course, there ARE other things I should be doing...like laundry?

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you're having a great Monday!
