If the Shoe Fits...

Hello and welcome to Free for all Friday at Flourishes!

Today the Flourishes Senior Design Team is pulling out some of our sets that are on the overstock or retiring list and giving them a new spin! We always love when we can do that, because it makes you fall in love with those sets all over again! We know you’ll think so too, so we invite you to take a trip on over to the rest of the Design Team to see what they have up their creative sleeves today:

I was on the hunt to create a simple girlie card for this week's project. I needed something simple and I knew I wanted to use the "Make a Wish" stamp set.  Needless to say, two trashed cards later, this is what I created...
I began by die cutting a piece of Classic White Cardstock and stamped the cute little shoes on to the die cut using Memento "Rich Cocoa" ink.  I inked up the edges with Ranger "Tattered Roses" & "Walnut Stain" Distress ink.  Then I coloured my image using the following Copic Collections:

I made each layer of the patterned papers using stamps included in the stamp set; the pretty twinkly star and the word "Dream".  I used Memento "Rich Cocoa" ink and Ranger "Tattered Roses" Distress ink for the stamping and then I distressed the edges with Ranger "Walnut Stain" Distress ink.  I also added some Stickles to make the stars shine...

 Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you enjoyed my little girly card.

 Check out what my fellow designers have done with some of our gorgeous retiring and overstock stamps...

Please be sure to give some extra love for our lovely Designer Maki Jones…Maki is taking a break from the design team and we’ll miss her very much while she’s gone! She’s such a talented lady who has treated us to some amazing and creative designs these last few years on the Timeless Tuesday Team and the Senior Design Team. We send big hugs out to Maki!
