Flourishes new “Stamp Simply” line is here! This first set released today is called “Coffee With Friends”. Below are a couple of cards made with it. Both are paper pieced. And let me tell you if you love paper piecing, then this is a MUST HAVE set!! It is perfect for it!


This first card truly lives up to the “Stamp Simply” goal. The stack of cups image was stamped on four different Basic Grey designer papers from their “Two Scoops” 6X6 pad and then pieced. And see that embossing on the back panel? That was achieved by running the card stock through the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots embossing folder. To get both a negative and positive embossing I ran the card stock through once, flipped it and ran it through the Cuttlebug a second time. I thought it was kinda fun. I used my scoring tool to score the lines around the main image and along the scalloped edge. I added some ribbon and bling and it was done!


On this second card I pieced again. (Did I mention how perfect this set is for it?) This time I used Basic Grey’s “Scarlet’s Letter” designer paper. With all this scrumptious paper it doesn’t take much more to complete the card. With just a few brads, velvet ribbon and a felt flower, it’s done.
