Sneak Peeks Day 3: Flowers & Frames

Hi all and welcome to day 3 of Flourishes and today's release is all about beautiful floral frames in all shapes and sizes! Want a peek?


This beautiful set pairs anemone florals designed in a swag-like design with sweet hand drawn frames that coordinate perfectly to provide a handful of different layering options. Use the large swag on a card base and build up using Spellbinders Classic Ovals LG. as your guide. Also features four all occasion sentiments designed to nest inside. The best news? If you like what you see on the designer's blogs today, you can pre-order this set -- right HERE! You can also take advantage of Flourishes' New Release Bundle -- 10% off all four sets when you order them in a bundle. Check it out HERE!

On to my creation!

I wanted to try using a lot of white space on my creaiton. So, I started with some good old fashioned Flourishes Classic White Card Stock! I stamped the frames using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto different size ovals from the Classic Ovals LG Spellbinders die set and then colored with Copic Markers. You can see that I used my Scor-Buddy to create the diagonal lines on my card front. The lines on my middle layer were made thanks to a diamond shaped embossing folder!

I used these Copic Collections to color up these florals!


Here's a close up! I just love the way these florals frame the different ovals! Don't you?
