Today's featured set is Flourishes and Frame and I've been using this set a lot. I love a good flourish and this one is as fancy as the heart could wish.
I needed a wedding card and decided to offset the frame a bit stamping and embossing white on white. I've lost my fine white embossing powder and had to use clear instead, which made the image a bit lighter than I would like, but I hope you can see it. Then you can overstamp another image because the embossing resists it. To finish off the card there is just a slight border of pink at the top and a bit of embossing in the lower corners.
For this next one, I am a big fan of pink with cream and this stamp again seemed a natural for a bit of a graceful look. My good friend Joanne gave me a package of pretty pink flowers over a year ago, would you believe this is the first time they've matched up enough to use one? Notice the frame is centered but the sentiment is not, this gives you room to add an embellishment.
This is my oldest daughter's favorite card, she likes the brighter colors. Again, I bought these primas ages ago and they've never suited a card before, but seemed to match the bounce and spirit of the DP. Thanks for looking.
Here is the complete hop order, if you follow along to the very end, the last link will take you to Mark's Finest Papers store front. Happy hopping!
