Dishing up some Country Charm!



You don't need me to tell you that tags and labels are two of the trendiest items to hit the card making market in a long time! And, to help you add style and pizzazz to your creations, Flourishes has teamed up with Spellbinders Paper Arts to make sure you have the perfect set of stamps to match a darling set of tag style dies. Wonderfully whimsical and reminiscent of Grandma’s calico prints, Flourishes “charming” set offers three labels that coordinate perfectly with Spellbinders Grommet Tags (S4-322). What fun! The coordinating borders offer five coordinating designs to add pizazz and they match the labels' designs to a tee!

Want to see my creation? I honestly wanted to show just how easy it would be to make a note card with an uplifting phrase in a jiffy! How many times have you needed a card in a crunch but yet, didn't have the time for anything super fancy? Well, my friends, when it comes to "thinking of you" style notes, this stamp set and border set delivers!



For my creation, I used some 7Gypsies paper as my decorative edge and stamped both my labels and border on it using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. After I was done, I cut out and matted the border, adding a sewn edge and then, using one of the Spellbinders Grommet Tag dies, I cut out my sentiment (thanks to my Grand Calibur machine!). What's perfect about this set is -- you can line up the window of your sentiment perfectly through the center of the die for easy alignment! The center sentiment was created by stamping the tag stamp again on white, embossing cutting out the center and then adding the sentiment. Add some beautiful silk black ribbon and bling and... voila!


Want to see a close up??



Flourishes knew when it designed this set that it was a match made in heaven with Spellbinder's Grommet Tags. And, because of that fact, both Flourishes and Spellbinder's design teams are joining forces for a fun-filled show and tell blog hop! Make sure to hop on over and see....

Cut it out!! I am in a budget crunch and I cannot "need" new stuff. You keep showing me fun stuff that you've done BEAUTIFUL things with and then I have to go off and pout. And today is not a pouty kind of day. It's a party kind of day and I hope she's getting spoiled proper. Happy Weekend! Oh and I LOVE this saying!
