If you love ornate flourishes & words to celebrate your family history then you will love this month’s stamp of the month Family Legacy – March Stamp of the Month. I love the play on the fonts family & sizes in this stamp set & can see many uses for it.
But as I do love to make cards I yet again made some using this stamp set.
My first card well I really wanted to play with the new Around the Clock stamp & die set, but I need to make something for this hop so I decided that the two could be used together.
I stamped a couple of the flourish corner into the corners & used the floral stamp on the main clock body & even the pendulums have been stamped with one of the flourishes.
My next card I decided to go a bit more arty style, it has been a while since I done something like this.
I stamped a mixture of the flourishes in black on the background & then sponged a variety of inks over it, I decided not to do any browns as I wanted this to be bit more fun & bright. I edged the card with a stamp from Strokes of an Artist to give it a finished border & added a sticked frame & a stamped flower & leaves from the Yesterday & Today – Cardmaking Stamp set. It is different but I really like how it turned out.
And my final card I decided to do some white embossing on Kraft cardstock with one of the flourishes. I really liked how it turned out so I needed to design something that showed it off a bit
So I added a flower stamped onto pink mixed in paper (I love how the white splotches added to the flower, so I am glad I few extra to use at a later date) some leaves & a thinking of you on black that been matted with some lined mix in paper. Everything sits on a Grid design from the Yesterday & Today Paper Pack.
