Welcome to the April Edition of the Creative Inking Blog Hop.  The theme this month is Spring is in the air.  Since Stampin’ Up! announced it’s retiring list, I decided to create several projects for you using retiring items.

Flourishing Phrases

One of my favorite stamp sets that is retiring is the Flourishing Phrases stamp set.   I created a Flourishing Phrases class and it was super popular a few years ago when the stamp set debuted.  If you remember, it was in Night of Navy.  As many cards as I have made with this stamp set, I never colored the flowers and leaves in different colors.   Now that we have a stamparatus, I find it so easy to color stamps and add more life to them with multiple colors.
