Flourishes Release...That's a Wrap!!!


We've arrived at the last day and "that's a wrap" on our September New Releases!  We know you've enjoyed this fun and festive week peeking at five fantastic new sets. Our last set is ready for all your pretty packaging.  This 4 x 6 set illustrated by Marcella Hawley is the perfect companion for any gift or Christmas greeting, wrapping it up in style with a fancy bow, jingle bells, elegant flowers, Christmas boughs, a terrific tag, as well as two seasonal sentiments.

On to my creation!

I just love all of the elements in this set and the fact that you can mix and match to literally dress your cards and creations up.... with a bow! I loved the jingle bells and so, that's where I started! While you can stamp these pieces individually and cut them out, I chose to stamp the jingle bells and then mask them. I then stamped the large bow, masked it, and then stamped the side ribbons. You might ask, "You can't even see the lines left by masking?" Well, when you mask, this guy below is your best friend!

It's the Copic .1 mm pen that Flourishes sells, a super fine nib that you can use to fill in those gaps. It truly is a life saver and so easy to use! Ok, after I stamped my image, I colored it up with Copic Markers (see supply list below for colors used) and then, matted the entire thing up with just three colors of decorative paper -- some of which was edged with a gold leaf pen. Add a little razzle dazzle with some glitter glue and.. ta da! Done!

I should point out, if you don't want to mask, like I said, you can stamp and cut your image out, or... better yet, if you have an electronic cutter, like the Silhouette Cameo, you can cut using the That's a Wrap cut file, stamp, color and... bam... done! Easy peasy!
