Time for another fun-filled way to 1,2,3 Create!

As Flourishes gets ready to kick off its April release, its ushering in another 1,2,3 Create Kit for your creative pleasure! This kit offers everything you need to create all in one -- embellishments, beautiful paper and fabulous ribbon! This kit features 48 sheets of 6 by 6" Prima Botanical decorative paper Paper (2 each of 24 color coordinating designs), 2 decorative swirl pearl embellishments, a variety of 9 vintage button sparklers, 3 yards of 1/2" red two toned May Arts ribbon, 1 yard of 1" silk pleated ivory, and 1 yard of 1/2" tea stained crochet lace. This kit is just too elegant for words! You can check it out HERE!

On to my creation!

It's funny, the blue decorative paper I chose has white roses on it so -- having a lightbulb moment, I decided to give my I Love Roses set a little love by pulling it out of my stamp storage. I thought it was brilliant. But, after I colored up my white rose and matted it up, you can't even see the white rose paper!! Bot so brilliant afterall - huh? :-) Regardless, I wanted to show you how pretty the items in the new 1,2,3 Create Kit are and how well they really coordinate!

For the mechanics of my card -- I stamped the rose using Memento Rich Cocoa ink on Flourishes Classic Ivory Card Stock and colored it up with Copic markers using the Spring Greens collection, the lighter shades of the Sunflower collection and then B0000 to highlight around my flower. I also used the Fanciful Flourishes set and used the Damask on a die cut shape just to add a little pizazz. After that I added a punched border, one of the beautiful sparkling buttons from this kit and a pennant style sentiment from the Hello Hyacinth set. Add a little stitching and... fini!

Cindy Lawrence and Christine Okken have also been working on samples to show you just how many ways you can use these items together! So, be sure to pay these gals a visit!

Wednesday, Flourishes kicks off the sneak peeks to its April release! Sounds like a super fun week, huh? I sure think so! See you back here soon!
