I'm back today with two more cards using the Flourishing Dies. The whole team will be focused on these dies this week, and these are the projects that will be featured on the Stampin' Up Facebook page on Friday! These are beautiful dies, and the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set, which is part of a bundle with them, has so many beautiful sayings. For these projects, I thought it would be fun to die cut them from Watercolor Paper, and then use multiple colors to paint them with.

Texture Stamps and Watercolor Stamping

Recently I created a post for the Stampin' Up! Corporate Blog, that I wanted to share with everyone here as well. And look, I used a watercolor technique again! I just can't help myself.

Have you seen the new Touches of Texture Stamp Set (Clear-Mount, item 143251; Wood-Mount, item 141934)? It’s filled with several beautiful line art stamps as well as different filler and texture stamps. I thought it would be fun to use a watercolor stamping technique and some simple layering to make a set of note cards and a coordinating gift bag to share with you today.

I got the idea to use some of the shapes from the Flourish Thinlits Dies to create some Christmas cards. I think the flowers look like snowflakes in silver, and the branches look wintery in gold too. So, that was my inspiration for these cards.

This week we are sharing Christmas in July projects featuring the This Christmas Suite of products. These projects will also be shown on the Stampin' Up Facebook page this Friday. I decided to make another tag set, and a matching gift bag to hold them. This would make a great class, or you could make a few sets ahead of time to give as gifts during the holiday season.
