Flourishes Beautiful World Tour - Off The Page

Hello everyone! It seems so long since I last blogged and I have missed you all. A great big 'Thank You' for all of your lovely PM's, messages and beautiful cards.
Today is the first Monday in November and time for another Flourishes Beautiful World Tour. If you're on track you should have arrived here from Anne-Elise's blog in Finland, but if you get lost along the way then start your hop back at the Flourishes blog in Florida.
By joining in with our tour you get the chance to see some beautiful Flourishes stamps used by the designers, and by leaving a comment on each designers blog by 30th November, you will be in with a chance of winning a FREE FLOURISHES STAMP SET!!!
This month Bridget is our lovely hostess and she has asked us to create something off the page. I have created a money wallet.....
For the flap of my money wallet I used Spellbinders Borderbilities, I then stamped three times with one of the stamps from Flourishes 'Picking Wild Flowers' set.
I then stamped the leafy frond using a stamp from 'Summer Blossoms' set.  I slightly curved the stamp to follow the line of the borderbility.
I coloured with markers and then added my decorative bow.
On the inside I attached a ribbon and label to hold money.  I then stamped my sentiment with two of the stamps from 'Inside & Out Just Because' set of stamps.
Here is what it looks like with a note inside.

Thank you for stopping by.....I am the last stop along the tour, but don't forget.....if you get lost along your way you can hop back to the Flourishes blog in Florida.

I promise to visit you all soon!  Love, Sasha xx

I love how you took an element from so many sets to achieve the delicate look that you wanted. The way that you curved the frond stamp made it appear as though the sets were designed to be used with the die. Wonderful idea, beautiful wallet. Thanks for your inspiration.

Naomi said...

Wow, this is AMAZING, Sasha! Love the die-cut edge on the front of the wallet and the band on the inside to hold the money...and also that beautiful white on white colour theme with the sweet little flowers.

Hugs,
Naomi

Beautifully elegant as always Sasha.

You asked about my freebee paper, it was from a Russian site called DHScraps but it doesn't seem to work anymore. Don't know if you've come across http://lilac-n-lavender.blogspot.co.uk/ another source of freebee florals.

Janis said...

Love how this has so much English charm. Love how you matched the contours of the border die and the stamp. Just gorgeous!
