Celebrate, Play and Win!

Celebrate Who: Jan Marie — the original Flourish!

Celebrate What: Her birthday!

Celebrate When: All day Monday, February 25, 2008

Celebrate Where: In the Flourishes Forum at SCS

How to Play: On Monday, February 25, upload any card or item made with ANY stamp by Flourishes. Use the keyword: fllcjanmariesbirthday Then post a link to your project in the Flourishes Forum at SCS. This is especially important if you are posting to your Blog only and not SCS. Without linking in the Flourishes Forum at SCS, no one will find you.

What You Can Win: Throughout the day on Monday, Jan Marie will be doing random drawings for small prizes, and there will be a lot!!! Then on Tuesday, she will make selections for the big prizes. The big prizes are:

1 Xyron 900
1 Nestabilities-Standard Classic Circles
1 Nestabilities-Classic Scallop Circles-LG
A pair of Fiskar scissors engraved with Flourishes,LLC
Various Flourishes,llc stamp sets

Now are these great prizes, or what!!! Gosh, wish I was eligible to enter!!! But I made a cake anyway to wish Jan Marie a Happy Birthday.



This card was made with Cake Decorating 101. I paper pieced the cake on Two Scoops paper and the plate and stand on Prism paper. The white base card is Cuttlebug embossed with the new Swiss Dots folder, as is the upper portion of the main image base, which was cut and embossd on a Rectangle Nesabilities Die by Spellbinders. The main image panel is then framed with a Scallop Nestabilites Die. I just added a sentiment panel, some pretty organdy ribbon and I was done!!!! A simple, but pretty, birthday cake!! Oops! Almost forgot — all the swirlies on the cake itself were gone over with a variety of Spica Glitter Pens — it is sooooo pretty IRL!

This card was also made for the Featured Stamper Challenge posted for Sunday, and this week the Feaured Stamper is Mary Jo Albright — love her work. Here is here little ATC. I used her basic layout with a few minor changes. It was the perfect layout for my cake!!! Thanks so much, Mary Jo!!!

    First off…I love the Swiss dots cb folder {its on my buy now list}. I love love love the basicgrey two scoops line of dp, I only have one pack of it, and its so hard to find, I find myself hoarding it. I know I must change that because this paper needs to be loved and cut into {did I just say cut into paper lol} You made a beatiful card, its very pretty. I have seen the neatest, most creative cards using this set.

  10. very cool card! I posted mine at SCS…funny thing is that I forgot that there were prizes LOL I just made them to join in on the fun and to have an excuse to play with my stamp set from the past CPS sketch. Now I am thinking I need to play more often!!
