I Love A Challenge

A friend of mine gave me these flourishes that she had cut using her Circut and asked if I could think of ways to use them on a card. That set my mind thinking. What could I do with them?

After looking around and then through my scrap box, I started getting some ideas. After I got one card made, ideas kept popping into my head. The bird was on my work space just waiting to be used. Since I needed some thank you cards, that is what this one turned out to be.

Next I found this background that I had made when I was trying out the new background stamp I had gotten from JustRite Stamps. Looked in my flower jar and there were the flowers. Perfect! Now I have two cards.
 In August, I attended the Heirloom Rubber Stamp Show in Novi, Michigan. I was able to get some new background stamps from Impression Obsession. So I had to try some of them out. Grabbed a piece of card stock and tried out the flourish stamp using Memento Ink's Grape Jelly. Then laid it aside. When I came across this background, I knew that I had to use it--went perfect with the smaller flourish. Found the embossed piece of card stock near my paper cutter--leftover from another project. Now I had my third card.

WOW--three cards and all so different.


  1. Love the unique ways you used those flourishes.

  2. I love the different cards you made with these great flourishes. I think flourishes really add a lot of elegance to cards.

  3. Just wondering about you. Haven't heard from you in a while.
