Good Morning! Do you remember the Stampin’ Up! Flourishing Phrases cling stamp set and Flourish Dies? It’s been a couple of years since these came out, but they were one of my favorites when they made their debut. It has so many intricate dies and gorgeous sentiments for all occasions. Since I haven’t used it for a while, I thought I’d pull it out and make a simple card and combine it with some of the newer products. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I embossed a panel of Whisper White card stock with the Coastal Weave embossing folder. I trimmed the embossed panel to 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ afterward. The Coastal Weave embossing folder is one that sometimes shrinks the paper, so I cut it larger than needed to allow for shrinkage.
I cut out the largest flower from the Flourish Dies from Grapefruit Grove card stock. I cut out the medium flower from Whisper White card stock and the smallest flower from Grapefruit Grove. I used mini glue dots to adhere the flowers together, aligning the petal tips. I adhered a large Basic Pearl to the center. I cut the large leaf sprig from the Flourish Dies from Mint Macaron card stock and the berries from Crumb Cake. I trimmed the ends of the last two die cuts so they wouldn’t extend too far.
I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Flourishing Phrases stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a strip of Mint Macaron card stock. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set until shiny. I cut the sentiment with the second smallest of the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered it to the card front with multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered the leaf and berries with small dots of multipurpose liquid glue so it wouldn’t smear, and I held it down for a few seconds to make sure it was stuck. I adhered the flower with a dimensional and I made a bow from Whisper White crinkle ribbon and tucked it under the edge of the flower with a glue dot.
I cut another medium flower from the Flourish Dies from Grapefruit Grove and adhered it to a Whisper White panel, again using small dots of multipurpose liquid glue. I cut two small leaves from Mint Macaron and adhered them next to the flower. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
The vivid graphics in the Stampin’ Up! Flourishing Phrases stamp set and Flourish Dies go well with many of the newer products. It’s fun to bring out the old with all their memories and give them a new twist by combining them with newer products. And it’s good to pull out the Grapefruit Grove card stock. As one of the 2018-2020 In Colors, it will be retired when the new Annual Catalog is released. Now is a good time to stock up on 2018-2020 In Color card stock, ink pads and refills before the supplies become limited!
