Swirls and Flourishes

The flourish is a polishing step in design. It’s a detail, neat and pretty that shows you’ve taken that extra time to make your project special.

Did you know we have swirls and flourish stamps throughout our January 2015 Catalog? You can find them in the Cling Rubber Sets like Spring Bouquet, Moray Dahlia and the pot of gold in Cling Filigree?

Debi Hammons used this set to create a stunning birthday card as the main attraction!

Krissy Fossmeyer took the time to add the flourish border in Moray Dahlia for a ribbon accent here on her Thank You card.

Swirls and flourishes work great for finishing up those scrapbook pages, too! Here’s a scrapbook page from alumni Cindy Bundy’s project bin that uses the swirl border from Spring Bouquet.

Charm and Versatility! And a TON of Project Ideas!!

Our various Charm Collection Perfectly Clear Stamp Sets are so unbelievably versatile! They can work so beautifully to accent a card, provide a border or background, or delve into the mixed media realm and become jewelry, ornaments, and so much more. Here’s are a couple of examples of projects from our July 2013 Catalog using our Steampunk Charms Perfectly Clear Stamps™ Set.
