1,2,3, Create!

Hi all and happy Monday! I have a fun thing to share today! Flourishes is just unveiling something new designed to help make your creativity flow! Do you ever struggle to find just the right ingredients for card making? You love that ribbon but don’t know what paper will match? Or, you have the paper but don’t have embellishments? Well, Flourishes is taking out the guesswork with its brand new 1,2,3 Create Kits!

And, here's a peek at what's inside! This kit features 30 sheets of Brioche Memory Box paper (3 each of 10 designs), 12 Prima paper butterflies in 3 different sizes, 60 self stick rhinestones in shades of blue, 60 buttons in coordinating colors, 2 yards of cotton linen ribbon in turquoise, 1 yard of cotton crochet lace, and 1 yard of red sheer ruffle ribbon. All for just $18! These kits are in limited supply, so get them before they are gone!

For my creation, I started with a plan to paper piece and use up some of the different and fun patterns in this kit. I knew I didn't want to or need to mask my poppies from the Poppy Patch stamp set. So, get ready for something that looks kind of ugly to start! :-) I stamped all the poppy elements just overtop eachother right on one of the decorative papers! See?

I colored the stems with some Copic Markers (YG63 and G40) and paper pieced the leaves with the blue paper that had green accents.
The next step was paper piecing my red flowers. I took two of the patterns to give my flowers some variety..

And... here's a peek at the finished product! All items are in the kit (except for ink and stamps). I added a distressed embossed edge to my card base, did some sewing, added some buttons, a tag (Spellbinders Ribbon Trio Tag Die) and a sentiment from the Life Lines set.

You can check out the new kit HERE. And, don't forget to check out two of my fellow gals on the Flourishes DT -- Dawn and Leslie! They have kit creations today as well, so click on over and see what they've whipped up! See you back here soon! Flourishes' Sneak Peeks start Wednesday, so look for more fun!
