It’s a Big Day for Flourishes!!!

Hi Stampers,

  Today I can hardly contain myself.  We are on day two of release with a very special stamp set by Marcella Hawley.  Petals & Peace is a unique look at the winter season.  This beautiful set has two gorgeous images, one with Roses and Greenery and one with Amaryllis and music score.  But to make this even better, we are releasing our very own custom die line, Tailor Made, and made just for us by Spellbinders.  So without further adieu here is the set Petals and Peace

 

And here is the companion die for the set:

 

Now here is the card I made using these beauties:

Here is an upclose look at the image

The card is 2 dimensional.  I used an Anna Griffin embossed and glittered paper for the face of the card, layered on Classic Ivory paper.  I cut the keyhole die out thru both pieces of cardstock and stitched the edges.  The look through the key hole has the roses images which I cut with the same die, and colored with these Copic collections:

The beautiful silk ribbon is May Arts Silk Champagne.  Lots of foam tape keep this layer floating above the keyhole.  I really like how this card turned out.  All the pieces came together just as I imagined.

There is a lot going on today, so visit the Flourishes blog for all the details.  Here is a link list to all the designers joining the hop today, they have a lot to share

Thanks for stopping in today.

Timeless Tuesday Sneak

Hi Stampers,

  It is Release Week for Flourishes.  Today we are highlighting a totally sentimental set, Sentinmental Christmas.

I have joined in the hop today with an ultra easy card for the Christmas season and we have lots of cards to make.  I never have enough time to get all the things done that I need to do and today was no exception.  I was not having a good mojo day so I made a much simpler and realistic card.

I used Spellbinder Die, Ironwork Motifs on Flourishes Classic White paper, stamped the sentiment in Silver pigment ink and embossed with Dazzling Diamonds Embossing Powder.  The blue cardstock was embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dot and lightly skimmed with silver ink.  The diecut was detailed with tiny pearls I colored with my Copic Marker to let them stand out.  A few swirls of pearls from Zeva, a dash of ribbon and I was almost done.  I mounted the blue card stock on Silver Metallic card stock and then onto the white card base.

I hope you will take the hop around all of the designers that are taking part in the sneak hop.

Thanks for stopping in today.
