New Flourishes Stamps -- ripe for the pickin'!

With July, we usher in a brand new set of stamps over at Flourishes that are ripe for the picking! And today's stamps -- boy are they ripe!


This set hand drawn by the ever-so-talented Marcella Hawley is another sure fire winner in our book! It's got a sweet and innocent flair to it that is sure to be used for all kinds of projects!

I chose to branch out a bit beyond just a card and whip something up for my 5-year-old daughter. She loves to ham it up and a fun floppy hat decked out in strawberries is just her style!
Here's a look at the set I created! I stamped all of my single strawberries using Brilliance Graphite Black. I let it dry a bit and then, using a protective piece of fabric layered over top, I ironed it to heat set my stamped image. This will help it to hold up if I ever do need to wash it. Then, I grabbed some fabric markers that I picked up on clearance at Mikes and went to town coloring all the berries! Add some gingham ribbon and a button and you are good to go!

Here's a close up of the hat.....

And the bag! She is at that age where a trip to the library is like a trip to the candy store. I thought this little bag would be just her size. It is about half the size of a normal tote but perfect for books! She thought it would be a great beach bag! Well, we don't really have beaches in Montana -- but it would work for a trip to the pool! :-)

Here's a close up of the detail on theberries! Isn't that stamp just the sweetest thing???

We just know you'll love this sweet batch of summer as much as our Design Team did! Hop around to see all the fun things they created with this sugary sweet set!
