Pretty in Purple

Flourishes is introducing its new stamps for this month, and one of the noontime challenges is entitled Pretty in Purple:

One of my favorite stamps from them is this Lilac one, and I've used it often, but I don't think I've ever paper-pieced it:

Flourishes Pretty in Purple challenge

supplies: white, purple, green, and kraft cardstock, Flourishes Lilac set, VersaFine onyx black ink, Nesties scalloped rectangles die, Martha Stewart eyelet edge punch, lavender gingham ribbon, lavendar button, white twine

The card is more of a notecard, sized  4" wide by 4 1/4" tall.


  1. I think it is beautiful The paper piecing makes all the difference.

  2. Love how you stamped the lilacs. Such a pretty way to use your purples. Thanks for joining us at Flourishes.

  3. Well done Lin, your paper piecing is lovely and your note card really beautiful

  4. Beautiful - love the deep colors against the white. It pops off the page! The edge is great with this image.

  5. Love how striking that black ink is on the purple! Beautiful card Lin!

  6. Beautiful card with a beautiful stamp. I love that gingham ribbon too.


Thank you so much for your kind comments - they make my day!
