Handmade cards with a flourish designed by Shelly Godby of www.stampingsmiles.comHow much of a charge to you get when an idea of yours actually works? That’s the feeling I got when the notion to try the Sheet Music background stamp with the very popular Stampin’ Up! Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set turned these handmade cards with a flourish. Both are on sale today. More information is below.

 

It got even better than imagined when I ditched the plan to stamp the large flourish die with a dark red or blue and opted to stamp it with the Tuxedo Black Memento Ink so I could color with Stampin’ Blends Markers.

The deep black on the Crumb Cake was only possible, I believe, because I used my self-made Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad. Click HERE to learn how if you missed the tutorial.

Check this out. I wanted to see how the same card looked with Very Vanilla Cardstock instead of Crumb Cake. Now I can’t decide which I like better. Can you? I’d love to know. Leave a comment below to let me know which one you like best.

The Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set is equally as popular for the greetings and sentiments as it is for the images. The “God wanted to brighten up the world . . .” is one reason that’s true. Here’s the rest of the sentence, “. . .  so he made you.” was stamped inside. My first thought was birthday, but why not for a thank you or thinking of you too?
