Celebating New Arrivals



New Arrivals Worth Celebrating !!!!


We at Flourishes have been celebrating many new arrivals each and every one worthy to stand on their own, however, I put them together to celebrate one more new arrival….well that’s true.  I have used all of these new arrivals…

…..Rock a Bye Baby, a new simply precious stamp set to celebrate each and every little one’s arrival and scrapbook their new lives. Yes, this set is a star in Flourishes line of stamps.  There’s a story behind this great set but that will have to wait for another time.



——JustRite Stampers…Monogramers-Personalizers…How very special to make that new little arrival’s date first and foremost and personalized. Well oh my this is grand.



…..Twinkling H2Os…oh my, this is just the cat’s meow…shimmery, soft, bright, soft with you in control.  These new watercolors come In the most wonderful array of colors…it is so hard to choose just the color I wanted to use…I wanted to play with them all…OH MY This is FUN !!













What does it look like all together and to celebrate one more new arrival? My niece Libby gave birth to Grayson on May 19th 2008 so that called for a very special card! Well you guessed it…all of these brand NEW products in the Flourishes webstore came together to make an extra special card.  So here it is!


From The Atelier





So How did you do that you ask…


***  Card base is white with a small piece of lemony yellow that I made by painting these wonderful Twinkling (Twinks) H2Os across the white cardstock.


*** Cuttlebugged the Bliss Blue cardstock


***Stamp the image from Rock A Bye Baby in Palette Hybrid Ink  Charcoal…OHHH, I love this new color!


***Spritz the “Twinks” with water and allow to soften. I then used my Waterbrush to place some of the Twinks on a CD..and from here I worked the colors to spread, shad,e and soften.  These are so very easy to use.


***The images were allowed to dry, then cut with my Nesties and then a shadow scalloped image was cut from Ballet Blue. I then added dots by using my Ranger Essentials White Opaque pen.


*** the JustRite Stamper was used for the very special personalized welcome of Grayon, using white craft ink by CTMH.  A second scallop layer was cut using the Nesties and then dotted with Ballet Blue.


***The card was assembled and pop glue dots large and mini for that estra special dimension.
