Frames with a Flourish Kit

Today's kit is the Frames with a Flourish kit. It's the third of 6 set-specific by mail card kits that I'm offering this month. Each kit will feature two card designs using only the coordinating stamp set plus some accessories.

I have to say that I am particularly happy with how these cards came out, mostly because when you look at this set in the catalog it's difficult to see the images as anything other than label holders. Thankfully, an article in the May Stampin' Success magazine (available to all Stampin' Up! demonstrators) featured different ways to use this set and served as an inspiration for these cards. What I really like about both of these is that both cards feature only the Frames with a Flourish stamp set (no sentiments or other images) and only 1 color of ink, yet they are anything but plain and boring. It just goes to show that with the right combination of designer paper and accessories you can make fabulous cards using just about any stamp set.

The Frames with a Flourish card kit will include all pre-cut card stock, designer paper, ribbon, chipboard, glue dots and dimensionals, envelopes and step-by step instructions to make 4 cards (2 each of both designs). The kit will not include chocolate chip classic ink, adhesive (except for the glue dots and dimensionals) or the Frames with a Flourish stamp set. To make these cards you will also need paper snips or other scissors and a stamping sponge or any other type of sponge applicator.

This kit will be available through the end of June at the special price of only $5.00 with the purchase of the Frames with a Flourish stamp set (regular shipping and tax will apply to the purchase of the stamp set). There is a limit of 1 specially priced kit per Frames with a flourish stamp set purchased. The cost without the purchase of the coordinating stamp set will be $10.00 per kit, plus shipping.

As I mentioned in yesterday's post, 1 design from each kit will be featured at my eScape stamp camp on June 25. The Frames with a Flourish card featured at the stamp camp will be the second card (with the groovy guava base).

I loved the set to begin with, but designing these cards made me fall in love with it even more, so I do hope these cards will convince you to add this awesome stamp set to your collection. I know you won't regret it!

I haven't posted on one of your cards in awhile, but had to let you know that I love your blue card. I have this set and haven't used it yet - now I'm going to go play with it. Thanks for all you do Diane - you continue to be an inspiration!
