Sneak Peeks-Day Two

DAY TWO
Today marks day two with a brand new set from our talented, resident and lead artist, Marcella Hawley. It’s a whimsical set that can be used for so many occassions that matter to you! A new home? A celebration? A fun card to send to a friend. You name it!

Introducing….


In a time when the stamp world is full of birds, can there be room enough for one more?  At Flourishes, we think yes.  Home Tweet Home is a wonderful blend of whimsy and realism…that will set your mojo in flight!

I got really excited about this set and have doodled around with this card for a few weeks…tweaking til it made my heart sing.  It feels like spring and time to decorate the perch.  That is just what I did on this card.  I had fun.home-tweet-home-release-card-3-a

As I played, this card just came alive.  Here is an upclose look at the dimension on the card…it is anything but flat!

Chair for You–Day Three of Release

DAY THREE

This is very exciting…Our last day of Sneak Peeks is here and we have a really BIG Party planned for our release tonight on our SCS Forum .  I sure hope you will join us.  There will be games, prizes, and surprises!  Y’all Come.

Today we are introducing another wonderful new set from our newest artist, Lauren Pope.  This set is called CHAIRS FOR YOU.  I think you will love the way Lauren plays within the Flourishes guidelines to remain true to our goal of a timeless look, and juxtaposes it with a full dose of whimsy!  I just love it!  So here is the first piece of the Sneak Peek.

Is that a sigh I hear all the way to my computer.  I told you she was good.  Well just hold on and wait until you take the blog tour.  I am sure that it will make you and your computer smile.

So what did I do for the Sneak Peek, you ask.  Well, scroll down just a little further.  I am just pulling you along to see my card.

So here it is:

I love MacKenzie-Childs anything!  So this is a little spin on their style.  What fun I had making  this card.  The Basic Grey papers made it so easy to put this card together.  All the papers are from the Urban Prairie  6 x 6 pad and are the perfect scale for this kind of  project.  The big puffy pillow sitting on this wonderful chair is actually an oversized brad!  I embossed the chair image with gold embossing powder on white cardstock.  The shading under the chair is a touch that Lauren puts on her images that I simply love. 

Viola!  Did you like my card????  Leave me a note please!

Here’s the list to go blog hopping…enjoy
