Flourishes Sneaks Day 1: Spring Blossoms!

Hi all and welcome to day 1 of Flourishes April Sneaks! Oh my goodness, where does the time go? I have to tell you that the Flourishes Design Team is excited though because our April release brings a bevy of beauty that is ripe for spring. Starting with this little number......
Did you recognize the flow of these flowers? Well, you should! This gorgeous stamp set is the final set in our Blossoms Collection, this beautiful array of spring blossoms illustrated by Marcella Hawley features a bouquet, corner stamps, and pieces to create your own borders or frames. Add in four of all occasion sentiments and you have the perfect set to create cards for every day correspondence. Set measures 4 by 6" and is the perfect companion to sister sets Happily Ever After SS199 and Letters in Blossom SS198. If you like this set, you might also like our Summer Blossoms set featuring summer florals, our Autumn Blossoms set featuring Autumn florals, our our set Winter Blossoms with gorgeous late winter/early spring blooms.

 On to my creation! For starters, this card was made a whole lot easier because I used the brand new 123 Create Kit called Stationery Noted. I love how those kits take the complete guesswork out of trying to match up papers, ribbons and all those little extras!

All that... for just $15! And.... below is what I made with my kit!

I started by using the Perfectly Pierced Classic Windows Die from Flourishes. I cut and embossed my shape from Flourishes Classic White and while the die was still on, I sponged on some Memento Summer Sky Ink. From there, I stamped one of the bracket style images (with those beautiful magnolias and berries) at the top and bottom of my die cut shape. I grabbed my Copic markers and... went to town coloring! (See the supplies used below for the colors I used!)

And, here's a close up! you can see I did add a little sparkle thanks to some glitter glue!
Afterward, it is just matting up my image! The doily is actually from one of my friends, Becky Fleck's Montana Misfits Grandma's Attic Collection. I also added one of these cute heart Sparklets. Other details? I did use Spellbinders Grand Labels One die for the shape at the bottom of my card and a corner rounder for the top. Ta da! Done!

Well, just as Flourishes has done in past release weeks, the design team is offering up our little guessing game of….
