The Sneaks are OVER!

Well dear stamping friends, the sneaks are over and we're taking the lid off Flourishes' October Release! Are you ready to see all three of these sets in their full glory? Well, they are all live, right now, in the Flourishes store HERE!

Now on to our final offering, one that is a gorgeous display of botanical beauty!

Named after the stars that lit the way for the birth of Jesus, this beautiful star-shaped flower embraces a meaning of purity, hope and happiness. Illustrated by Marcella Hawley, this set offers a beautiful and sweet scented way to ring in the Christmas season. This 4 by 6" set also offers four scripted sentiments perfect for your seasonal creations!

Flourishes is also unveiling something else...... just in time for Christmas!

Just click HERE to see our new catalog in the Flourishes store!

Ok.. on to my creation!

I started by stamping my image using Tuxedo Black Memento. The circle was done thanks to the Star of Bethlehem cut file -- a perfect circle for this stamp! I colored my image up with Copic Markers (see below for the colors that I used) and then, using a Spellbinders Standard Circles LG die, I cut a circle from decorative paper, embossed and sanded the edges and that became my mat. Add a half portion of a doily, some more decorative paper, some seam binding ribbon and iridescent cording and.. ta da! Done!

Here's a close up for you!


And that, my friend is it! Pretty easy peasy! While you're hopping about and seeing all the beautiful things our design team created using the Star of Bethlehem set, don't forget to try to figure out.....
