Friends of Flourishes Vellum Challenge

Hello, Friends!  It’s kReN@afourthlife here again today.   I have challenged the Friends of Flourishes team to use vellum on their projects this week.  My project uses an image from the Year of Flowers 3 stamp set, the aster.  I love “all things daisy-like” so this is a favorite image of mine.

Friends of Flourishes Challenge

Hi everyone!  Vickie Y here!  It’s my week to host the Friends of Flourishes Challenge.  I challenged the design team to create a “thinking of you” card.  There are so many ways to let someone know you are thinking of them when creating a special card for a special person in your life.  I know you’ll love the inspiration the design team has to share!

For my card I used an image from the Winter Birds digi stamp set.  I printed the image on Flourishes white cardstock, cut the image to size 2 ¾ inch square then added a piece of foil transfer paper to it and ran it through my heat laminator to give it some gold highlights!  The sentiment is from the Flourishes Small Sentiments stamp set that is part of the January release.  I stamped the image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I colored the gold foiled image using pastel chalks and Chameleon Pens.  The finished card size is 4 inches square.


Let’s take a look at what the Friends of Flourishes Design Team members created by visiting their blogs and be sure to leave a comment while you are there!

Shimmer and Shine With Winter Bouquet


Hello, Friends!  It’s Kren here with a card to share using a set called Winter Bouquet.  I challenged the Friends Design Team members to use “shimmer and shine.”   The metallic embossed paper is satin finish and add a soft glow to the card.  Because I love the look of vellum colored with alcohol markers, I applied the color on the back of the vellum and the colors soften a bit more for a special look and the satin finish is created.  Adding a slightly larger flower frame shape adds more to the bouquet theme.  The sentiment on vellum creates yet another soft layer and a few sequins continues the shimmer and shine theme.

Supplies:  Flourishes lc Winter Bouquet

Other supplies:  DCWV Metallic Stack, sequins, Promarkers,

Copic markers.

Now it’s time to visit the Friends DT blogs and see what they have created with the “shimmer and shine” theme:
