Flourishes October Release Day 1 – Year of Flowers

Hello and welcome to Day 1 of the Flourishes LC Release for October!

If you have arrived from Linda’s blog, you are in the right place. If not, please see the Blog Hop List below to start from the beginning.

Today, we are showcasing three new stamp sets, Year of Flowers 1, Year of Flowers 2, and Year of Flowers 3. These beautiful floral stamp sets were all designed by the lovely Beverly Cole.

Here is what I created:

I decided to feature Year of Flowers 3, using the mum image. I coloured the image using Copic Markers and fussy-cut the image out. I then cut a piece of patterned paper using Flourishes Tailor-made Perfectly Pierced Classic Frames Die Set. I then stamped the sentiment from Fall Tree using a navy blue ink. Next, I traced the outline of the Classic Frames die so that I could mat the sentiment frame. This was then layered over some other patterned papers and attached to the card base. Finally, I embellished with some gold twine and some gold glitter enamel dots.

Here is a peek of what the stamp set looks like:

I love all three stamp sets and know that these are sets that I’ll be coming back to frequently.

Flourishes September Release Day 6 – Fall Tree

Hello and welcome to Day 6 of the Flourishes LC Release for September! This is the final day and what a stunning release it has been, this month!

If you have arrived from Linda’s blog, then you are in the right place. If not, head on over to the Flourishes Blog to start from the beginning.

Today, we are showcasing a new stamp set designed by Lauren Pope called Fall Tree.

***Please keep reading to see how you can have a chance at winning this gorgeous stamp set!***

Without further ado, let’s take a look at what I created:

The Fall Tree image is so detailed that I didn’t feel the need to colour it (although it would also be beautiful coloured in). I simply stamped it onto Flourishes Classic White Card Stock using black ink and cut it out using the largest Spellbinders Classic Square die. Since I wanted to create a navy blue mat for the main image, I used the same die and traced around the outer edge and cut the mat out by hand. This is a technique I often use when I want to create a mat for the largest die in a set. I wrapped some gold twine around the navy blue mat and tied a nice bow before mounting the main image using foam tape. After affixing the main image to the patterned paper background, I attached it to a white card base which I cut-out from Flourishes Classic White Card Stock. To finish it all off, I added a sentiment from the Flourishes Apple of my Eye stamp set (a gorgeous set which is on sale for only $10), a puffy sentiment sticker, and a couple of large gold enamel dots.
Here is a peek of what the stamp set looks like:
