Seeds of Friendship Sneak Peek!

Remember the days when you just couldn't wait to help your grandmother or mom plant summer seeds? When the best part was just getting your hands in the dirt to help a beautiful flower or veggie get its start? Well then, we have just the stamp set for you!


The Seeds of Friendship set features not only a customizable seed packet design but 10 sentiments and 9 accent pieces. Can you imagine all the wonderful things you can do with this set and all the fun stamps -- the fun florals or fruits that you could stick inside the frame? When I heard the concept for this one I immediately thought -- how original!

Now, to my creation!

For my card, I immediately picked up the Gerber Daisy set -- this is one of my faves and I thought it's a perfect pick to be used with this new set! I stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento onto Flourishes Classic White and then picked up the Dahlia, Sunflower, Fields and Cool Neutrals Copic Collections grouped by Flourishes. I also paper pieced a bit to get the darker color on the top of my packet and then edged pieces of it with gold leaf pen for a real vintage flair! Add a little stitching, a little wood button with some twine and a flag style sentiment and... voila!

Would you like to win this set? Simply leave a comment over on today's blog post at Flourishes! The winner will be announced in the winner's circle on Saturday at noon central time!

You're going to have to hop on over and see what the rest of the Flourishes’ Design Team whipped up! I got a preview of some of the cards and.. gasped!

    Honestly, Julie, I can hardly believe how much this looks like a real seed pack! And featuring one of my all-time favorite Flourishes sets. Love those Gerbera Daisies! You know, I actually had to make myself put them away because I thought I might be over-using them. You make me want to pull them out again. Your coloring here is awe inspiring!
