FLLC Release Day 1- From the Heart

Hello and welcome today one of Flourishes’ fabulous sneak peeks for January!  We have three new sets coming your way designed to deliver a little love to someone else’s life! The calendar might say winter but we’re sure these Valentine sets will WARM your heart! 



This classic set —  From the Heart — penned by Becky Fleck, offers an antique flavor for Valentine’s Day!  An ornate heart stands as a focal point and is a perfect companion to Spellbinders Classic Heart Nestabilities die (S4-136)  and Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Heart Nestabilities Die (S4-137).  A curled banner is the perfect accent — allowing a few of the sentiments to be stamped inside!

I just love Acanthus style art.  It is so classic, found in so much  architecture.  It is actually a plant that has thorny leaves and is native to tropical and warm temperate regions, with the highest species diversity in the Mediterranean Basin and Asia.    Acanthus is a genus  of about 30 species of flowering plants in the family Acanthaceae.   Several cities are names for this plant such as Acanthus (Greece), an ancient Greek city,  Acanthus (Egypt), an ancient Egyptian city,  Acanthus, Ontario, a modern Canadian town.  Now that I have shared a little bit of knowledge I found on the internet and the suspense  heightens, I want to share with you my card for today.  So close your eyes tight and then open them now. 

Viola !

I used the newest 1,2,3 Create Kit from Flourishes – Sweet Nothings.  I love the paper and wonderful accessories in this set.  I added two different ribbons from my stash and a jewelry piece I found at Michael’s.  I stamped my image in Memento Rich Cocca ink and colored with the Copic Collection Black Cherry.
