Just in time!!!

Flourishes' sneek peek week always seems to fly by but today, you're just in "time" to see their FULL JULY LINE UP! That's right, all of Flourishes' stamp sets for July are now LIVE in the Flourishes store! You can CLICK HERE to see, but you'll want to hop on over to see what the rest of the Flourishes Design Team whipped up today -- these creations are truly "timeless!" Check out this new set......



This masculine, all occassion set is perfect for wishing the guys in your life a little cheer. This set penned by Lauren Pope features two beautiful main images plus a handful of accents and four elegantly scripted sentiments. It's great for birthdays, anniversaries, retirements, you name it!

On to my creation!



I have to tell you, I had fun with this one. Why? I just love the little extra elements in this set that add class. I love the damask, the Roman numerals, and the huge clock face. And so, that's what I wanted as the centerpiece. All of the elements I used to create my card are a part of a brand new 123 Create Kit called Timepiece. It features some great elements including Bo Bunny Timepiece paper, some fun sprockets, burplap string and the brown twill I used too! Here's a peek!





For my card details, I just stamped the clock face a few times (once on a dark brown and once on a medium brown paper) using Versamark ink and then embossing with detail copper embossing powder. I stamped the clock face on a lighter tan decorative paper and then paper pieced the clock together, layering as I went. I stamped the damask from the set as well as the Roman numerals for a little background drama, add some stitching and then comes the layering! The mat was created using Spellbinders Labels Thirteen (cut thanks to my Grand Calibur machine). After I was done embossing, I did sand the edges but didn't like the bright white, so I colored the white areas with Copic Marker E33 to tone it down. It almost looks like worn leather, which I thought was a fun look! Add a sentiment, and some brown twill tied with burlap string and adorned with a sprocket and... done!



Here's a close up of the clock face....
And, here's that fun sprocket!
Again, you can find all the elements HERE in the brand new 123 Create Kit called Timepiece!
