The Flourishes October Release is HERE!

Hi all! We hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s peeks and we are excited to say that all of the stamp sets that we’ve been showing off this week are in the Flourishes Store HERE!  And, instead of calling this last set a "peek" let's just show it to you in its full glory!



For a little while now, Flourishes has gotten requests to bring back an all occasion stamp set that can fit the bill for a variety of different kinds of cards. And that's what Sentimental Favorites is all about! From Happy Birthday and Thank You creations to sympathy cards and notes of Congrats, this set has all the sentiments you need packed in a 4" by 6" set. It will, no doubt, be a "go to" with all those beautifully scripted words!

On to my creation!
Since this is a sentiment set, I reached for an oldie but goodie for my card. I have to say, I kind of cheated with this card! :-) Since I stamp with my mom a lot - instead of dragging my stamp room with me to her house, I often stamp off a handful of images, she brews the coffee and we color! So, this is an image I literally colored up probably 6 months ago and then grabbed when I saw this sentiment set. I mean... what's more "happy" than a window box full of tulips in bloom? I thought it was perfect. 

I stamped my image on Flourishes Classic White  card stock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. And then, I grabbed my Copic markers to color it all up (see my Supplies Used list to see the color combos I used). I thought the My Mind's Eye Fiddlesticks Wood Grain paper was just perfect for this image. Mat it all up thanks to the Spellbinders Beaded Squares die, a pennant sentiment using the new Sentimental Favorites set and you're almost done! I added a cotton linen ribbon bow and colored up a little bling with a pink Copic marker to match and... done! Oh yes... I did sand the embossed die shape and then added some stitching to the outside of my card front. 

Here's a close up! You can see I did add some glitter glue to the flowers to bring a little sparkle! 

And that, my friends, is it! Would you like to win the new Sentimental Favorites stamp set? All you need to do is guess….
