INKspired Blog Hop #37 - Flourishing Phrases

Welcome to the INKspired Blog Hop #38, I'm so glad to see you here! There's always some great ideas and wonderful cards to be inspired by, such as Teneale's.  If you've hopped here from her blog - you're in the right spot.

Here is this week's sketch ... 

I really wanted to use the Flourishing Phrases stamp set and matching Flourish Thinlits Dies in my project this week. They've been on the top of my wish-list since the release of the new cattie and I've only recently gotten my hands on them.  I just adore all the intricate detail in this bundle and I'm a sucker for floral motifs.

So here's the first card I made ... the colour scheme is Mint Macaron, Sweet Sugarplum and Pink Pirourette.

I asked my hubby what he thought of my card (always a mistake!) and his opinion was that I had strayed too far from the brief. So, despite not sharing his opinion, I decided to make a second offering that features different elements from the same bundle. 

The colour combo in this card is Wild Wasabi, Flirty Flamingo and Smoky Slate.

I was really happy with the first card, but I think the second is now my fave. 
Which is your favourite? Love you to let me know.

Next in the hop is the totally talented Renee with a really fun card.

Thanks for hopping by,  I hope to see you again soon.

  1. LOve both your cards Lissa. I like the stripes in the second card.xx

  2. Whilst I like your first card, I love your second one, its beautiful and much closer to the sketch. I did the same as your thought to much
