Guest Designer: Virginia Lu

Hello, there! This is Virginia Lu from Yes Virginia… Blog. I am delighted to share my projects with you her today. The stamp set “Holiday Flourish” truly is versatile. Once I start stamping, I could not stop.
When I first try out a new stamp set, I like to stamp out the possibilities. What better ways to create a one layer card? I first embossed the sentiment in gold and then stamped the designs around it.

My 2nd card was created with the matching dies.

Let me tell ya, the added dimensions and clean cut edges are what makes the dies amazing. I applied alcohol inks to vellum (without any stamping) and arranged the stamped images and die cut in a pleasing way. I then topped it off with silver strings, ink splatter and sequins.  Done!

 I also wanted to create a Christmas card with non-traditional colors. What can be more festive than neon colors?
Merry Christmas #3
I took out my neon inks and Delicata (silver) and stamped all around the border. Super simple and fun to do. I hope that my cards with “Holiday Flourish” gives you some inspiration. It’s not too late to stamp the cards for holiday yet!
