Sneak Peek Day 2: Tiny Tags & More!

Hi all and welcome to day 2 of the Sneak Peek fun that Flourishes is ushering in for February! Wasn't yesterday's Calla Lilies set a stunner? I think so! Today's set is one that you can use for so many things. So many, that Flourishes knows there will surely be creative surprises down the road!


Tiny Flowers and Tags is a fun set with endless opportunities! Create Borders, frames, corners and more! This set offers -- get ready for this --  28 little images and 15 sentiments perfect to send along mini messages to anyone and everyone! And, what's better? Flourishes has a fun addition that makes this set even more well rounded. They've added another die set to their Tailor-Made Die Collection. Want to see?

These Flourishes Tailor-made Dies-- called Classic Tags -- are custom creations that measure 1-1/2" square or less and are manufactured by Spellbinders Paper Arts. What does that mean? A quality die set that not only cuts but embosses as well! Each and every image in Tiny Flowers and Tags fits inside these little tags allowing you to create floral adornments or pint-sized greetings in a jiffy!

On to my creation! When I saw these tiny flowers and sentiments, I knew that I wanted to create a smaller card to truly focus on these little beauties! So, I picked a 4" by 4" square card and some old Jenni Bowlin paper that was still in my stash....

To create my floral frame, I stamped a rose and a leaf  from the set on a post-it note and then used that multiple times as a mask. To make sure my image was indeed a circle, I did trace (with pencil) the internal frame from a Spellbinders Classic Circle die. After I was done, I colored up my image with Copic Markers and used these collections...

I also highlighted around my flowers with the marker BG0000. I cut out my image using a Spellbinders Classic Circle Die (cut thanks to my Grand Calibur). While the die was still on, I sponged on some Antique Linen Distress Ink and then paper pierced around the frame. I matted my image on a doily, added some pretty May Arts ribbon and a little bling and... almost done! I used the new Classic Tags die to create my little floral tag! I think these little tag dies are toooooo cute! I know I will get a ton of use out of them because I absolutely love mini messages!

Here's a close up!
