Flourishes Featured Stamper #3

I do a lot of different things in the course of a week but, I must admit, the very hardest thing I do is choose our weekly winner – truly, a difficult task with all the gorgeous uploads coming in!!! It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it – LOL!!! This week I chose 2 winners as I truly could not decide. Each of these entries had qualities I love, and that is where the similarity ends – they both represent two distinctly different styles – and I LOVE them both:

Flourishes Featured Stampers for Week 3


Joan Ervin and 1busymomof2

Congrats to Joan and Latisha!!!

I’ll start with Joan’s card. Joan uses our Lilac set drawn by Marcella Hawley. These are such gorgeous lilacs and Joan certainly used them to their fullest. She stamped 3 lilac stems, colored them and cut them out – and check out her cutting job – it is meticulously done around each and every little blossom – just amazing work, Joan!!! And Joan’s layout is so rich and elegant looking with the dry embossed background and perimeter flourish images and her pretty ribbons. What a wonderful lilac creation, Joan!!! Thank you so much for playing, and good luck in the July 1 prize drawing.

Next is Latisha’s card that I just love. Latisha’s entry is much more modern and contemporary. Latisha has tied together many fun elements. First of all she used Spring Ephemerals, another set drawn by Marcella Hawley, and Flourishes first solid image stamp set. Latisha went with dark silhouette type images stamped on 3 panels and matted in blue—so striking. Her *Dream* sentiment is from Fantasy Floral Garden, and these were mounted onto clear cardstock with a bright inside back. She added on two types of fun sheer ribbons and that finished off her card just perfectly!!! Thank you so much, Latisha!!! Your name will also be added to the winners list with a chance for the July 1 drawing.

Thanks so much for stopping in. Hope you all keep playing. We all LOVE seeing all of your uploads every day – keep them coming!!! You can check out the challenge in the Flourishes Forum at SCS. Wishing you all a wonderful week!!!
