Sneak Day 3: Love, Sweet Love Hop!

Hi all and welcome to the final day of Flourishes' Release Week! And, guess what? If you like what you've seen so far.... I'm happy to report that all three of Flourishes' new sets for January are in the Flourishes store!! Just click HERE to see for yourself! On to today's special treat! This next set is just that --- a sweet treat for those you love! Want to see what I mean??

 

Love, Sweet Love  offers a sweet way to honor your Valentine! From a cookie bouquet to a beautiful box of chocolates, to a basket of flowers complete with a darling, heart-adorned love note, this set illustrated by Marcella Hawley is sure to warm your heart. This 4 by 6" set even comes with 3 beautifully scripted sentiments to tell your love how you feel!

On to my creation! I just LOVEEEEE the images in this set and when I saw this darling box of candies, I couldn't resist!


I stamped my image using Memento Rich Cocoa and then colored using Copic Markers -- using these collections grouped by Flourishes! 






To put this creation together, I used some crushed red ribbon, crochet lace, a prima rosette, and some paper from My Mind's Eye (it was a scrap but I *think* it is from the Vanity Fair collection. The damask pattern is an old Jenny Bowlin design) I used Spellbinder's Classic Circle and Blossom Nestabilities (cut thanks to my Grand Calibur) for my shapes and...  ta da!! Add a punched border and that, my friends, is it!
