Stampin' Up! Flourishes in the Love Chapter #84 CTC

Hello and Welcome back to our Sunday Night blog hop!!  What a wonderful way to spend a Sunday night - especially when we've hit a very cold spell for winter here in Sunny Queensland!!  It might even get down to about 5 degrees Celsius tonight which is mighty cold for us!!

This week we are CASEing the Love and Sympathy Chapter - and this chapter has some of my FAVOURITE new products in it!!

I have absolutely LOVED playing with the Flourishing Phrases stamp set and the coordinating Flourish Thinlits .... so I've CASED these 2 lovely projects in the catalogue.

My first is a CASE of the card at the bottom of page 51 - I really love the little embellishment cluster at the top of the greeting circles, and so - here is my little creation of this card.

I've used the lovely Rose Wonder stamp set for my greeting, and in the background I stamped Crumb Cake ink with Work of Art and then used my aqua painter to swish and blend the colour around.

My embellishment colours are:  Peekaboo Peach and Emerald Envy along with some of our new Very Vanilla lace trim - and it's so pretty isn't it?

My second card is CASED from the top of page 49 - it's super simple and lovely to make.

I'd had so much fun using my Big Shot with all the lovely framelits, that when I made this card, I really enjoyed using that elaborate flourish stamp - doesn't it look amazing!!

Ok, if you've been inspired by the great projects and ideas in this chapter of the Catalogue, make sure you join in with the fun - there is so much to inspire you!!  When you've made your creation, make sure you add it to our challenge link, and we'll be inspired by your work too!!

Now, it's time for you to keep hopping along with all the great projects from the whole design team!!  

And if you wish to see the blog post for CASEing the Catty, simply use this link and you'll see the complete list of all the design team and links to their blogs - enjoy!!

And we'll see you next week again!!


  1. I'm loving the cluster of embellishments you've used too, I have to get past the basic black phase. You're interpretations are beautiful!

  2. Oh Julia, I do love a cluster! You've done a lovely job CASEing this. Love your card better than the Catty.

  3. Julia, the little cluster on card 1 is just devine, love, love, love it and those sentiments what a beautiful stamp.I love the way you have stamped the background, it truly is a 'work of art'.

  4. Both cards are just gorgeous, Julia. I especially love the watercolour wash on the first.


  5. Love all the details on your cards, Julia. Both are really lovely.

  6. Both gorgeous cards but my favourite is the first one. Love the cluster of flowers and the background looks amazing.
