Less is More Flourishes

I know...two posts in one day!  I couldn't help it!  I was having too much fun in my craft room not to share this one ASAP.  I kept looking at the new stamps from Club Scrap's Celebration kit and was thinking they look like half of hearts. 



Some of that thinking could be that I've been thinking about Valentines cards.  I have a mirror image stamp pad that I haven't had much success with so I thought I'd break it out and OWN IT! After a few practice runs, I think I got it down.  I'll leave the process for another blog soon...I promise.
 
So...back to Less is More's Flourish challenge.  What I really like about this challenge is the "one layer" concept.  Too many challenges have elaborate cards that I think...how in the heck do you mail that?!  One layer...that is it.  You have to be able to ROCK that stamp image because you can't add a flower or embellishment over your stamping mistakes.  I admit it was hard not to add a ribbon or jewels or brads, however I LOVE the end result!

Woven Strands Blog Hop

Welcome to the Club Scrap Woven Strands blog hop! If you've arrived here from Lilian's Leaf Studio you are in the right place.   If you've happened upon the hop, please don't miss anything and start with Karen at Club Scrap. When I first received the Woven Strands kit from Club Scrap I immediately thought of our family reunion after seeing the stamps.  The tree and quotes were just screaming "family".  I gathered up my photos, chose the papers that complimented my photos and then found a layout in the Idea Deck that worked with my photos.  Here I chose the 5 of Clubs from Volume V. I left a few elements out and added a few of my own. I really liked the woven circles but they were 12x12, so I just cut them down to meet the 8.5x11 requirement for the directions.  I added one of my favorite quote stamps from Tahiti on the paper strips. Supplies: Woven Strands papers, quilted embellishments, jewels and stamps. Thicker alphabet, Martha Stewart punch, Queen &a…
