The Sneaks are OVER!

Hi all and welcome to the final day of the Flourishes peeks for October! Actually, all of the new sets made it into the Flourishes store last night after the fun-filled and fast-paced release party! So, you can check it all out HERE!

Now, a question for you! Do you ever buy a stamp set and realize (disappointedly) that you only have one solid image in the set? Well, Flourishes thought about that long and hard when it came out with one of its newest Christmas releases!

Introducing....
This set -- Christmas Classics -- is PERFECT for those stampers that want it all in a Christmas stamp set! Drawn by Marcella Hawley, this set has three solid images and three perfect coordinating sentiments so that, with just one stamp set, you get three very pretty and very different Christmas cards! Who doesn't love that??

On to my creation!

When I saw these darling stockings, I knew right away that I wanted to reach for my new BasicGrey Jovial paper pack and paper piece these fun little socks! After that, I took my Copic markers to color the packages and gifts inside! (Holly, Spring Greens, Flesh Tones 2, Poppy and B0000 - collections grouped by Flourishes HERE). After that, I added some beautiful crushed velvet ribbon, a fun silver ribbon slide and my sentiment on a small punched oval. The bottom is a Bazzil punched edge that I accented with tons of BLING!
And, here's a close up! I did add some white gel pen (Inkssentials) to the tassels on the far right stocking since paper piecing those dots would be impossible! ;-)

And, there you have it! A fun card that is pretty easy peasy to create! You'll have to stop by and see what the rest of the DT whipped up with this versatile set!!
