Flowering Flourishes Stamp Set & Tool Tip

Welcome to Guneaux Designs! Today I am sharing with you a card that features a new stamp set from the 2012 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog, the Flowering Flourishes Stamp Set.  I was so disappointed when Stampin’ Up! retired the Baroque Motifs Stamp Set; however, I am quite pleased with the Flowering Flourishes Stamp Set which is similar. The stamp set includes three “flourishes“, and the one on this card is the largest. I think it is so cute!  I will also share with you a tool tip regarding “photo corners”.

Remember when we had the Stampin’ Up! Photo Corner Punch to create corner decorations for our handmade cards?  I loved that punch and I miss it.  Well, I decided to look for another way to make attractive photo corner pieces. Therefore, I did, and this is how I did it.

1. Cut a piece of cardstock using the Curly Label Punch.

2. Place the corner of the long side of the curly label into the corner of the 1-1/4″ Square Punch, lining it up evenly and cutting it. Stampin' Up! Curly Label

 3. This is the result. Cut more and add them to the corners of your card.
