Wrapping up Flourishes' Release!

When Flourishes first laid eyes on two of the brand new die sets fresh off the line at Spellbinders Paper Arts, they knew that stampers needed a stamp set to coordinate with it! Are you ready to take a peek?

Introducing.....
This fun set just screams celebration and offers 6 different pennants and flags all designed to coordinate perfectly with Spellbinders Nested Pennants (S5-028) and Spellbinders Lacey Nested Pennants (S5-029). There are also 9 sentiments and 8 accents in the set you can use to deck out your pennant shapes in fun and different ways! Want a little more to coordinate with your cards? How about our new Strips and Stripes background set? This set offers three strips to use together as one background or separate as three different strips that coordinate with our Birthday Pennants set! Since the set was just released last night, we can show you it in it's entirety now!

Birthday Pennants
Strips & Stripes

On to my creation!

I can't tell you how "happy" this set feels to me! For starters -- I love the fact that all the little pennants in this set can coordinate with the Spellbinder's Pennants dies - makes it so easy and fun! This card couldn't be any easier. I stamped my little pennant a handful of times using different Memento Inks - RosebudBahama Blue, Tangelo, and Pear Tart. I cut them out using the coordinating die, punched a hole and added some string, some bling and the rest is matting it up! I did use one of my embossing folders for the top portion of my card to add some pizazz. For the bottom of my card, I stamped one of the strips in the Strips and Stripes set to add some fun, added a sentiment, and some accent stars from the set and MORE bling! Add a scalloped edge and some fun Lime Rickey BasicGrey paper and... voila! Easy Peasy card in no time at all!

Here's a close up view....


Because we just knew this set was a match made in heaven with the Spellbinder's Pennant Dies, Flourishes asked some of their ever-so-talented designers to join the Flourishes team for a little show and tell! Make sure to hop on over and see....
