Flourishing Phrases


This is another Stamp Club card - one you hope you do not need but you know you will.  I love the combination of Daffodil and Basic Black.  I used the Flourishing Phrases thinlits and stamp set to make this card.  If you haven't looked at this bundle in the Annual Catalog, you need to check it out on page 49.  The stamp set is a really good one when you are looking for sentiments.  Not only does it have some really good sympathy ones, but also many others from "Just a Note" to "I love you."   And the thinlits are so pretty - you get leaves, flowers and borders.

I found that the Die Brush (page 190) really came in handy with getting all the little bits out of the dies.  I have not been a fan of the Die Brush and did not encourage my customers to purchase it but I am changing my tune now!  You can do a Google search and see some tutorials for using the Die Brush.  But basically, you just run your card stock with the die through your Big Shot and when you take it out, put it on a foam mat without removing the piece from the die.  Next  just run the Die Brush back and forth over the top of the die and most of the bits will come out and the die piece will come out of the die easier.  Try it - you'll like it!!
