Sneaks Are Over!

All good things must come to an end and such is the case for the Hot Summer Sneak Peeks from Flourishes. But... the good news is... now the stamp sets are in the store and you can see them in their full glory!!



Patriotism on Parade

If you missed the announcement about the Patriotism on Parade and Flourishes effort to make a difference in the lives of wounded soldiers, you'll want to read HERE! It's pretty special!

Before I go, I wanted to show you one more sample with one of the new sets! This one is an easy peasy lemon squeezy kind of card!

All it takes is some decorative paper (Bo Bunny), some paper piercing, a large oval punch (SU), some fun yellow gingham ribbon, a button and some watercolor paper and you're pretty much there! I stamped my lemon image with Hybrid Pallete Noir ink and then colored with Cantaloupe and Dandelion Memento ink pads and Bamboo Sprout (Memento) and Vintage Green (Vivid) ink pads with a water brush. Make a watercolor wash out of Stonewashed Adirondack and that's pretty much it! The dots were added with a fine tip permanent black marker and my paper piercing template (from SU). Add the button and.... voila!
Hope you enjoyed the peeks this week and that you love the sets as much as we do!
Thanks for stopping by! See you back here soon!
