Sneak Peeks Day 2: Garden Picks!

Are you ready for more Flourishes fun? If you missed yesterday's Timeless Tuesday post, you missed the kick start of Flourishes August release! (And a chance to win it!) So, click HERE to check that out! Today, our fabulous designers are showing off a set that is fresh picked. It's a bouquet of goodness fresh from the flower garden!

Introducing...


Freshly snipped from the garden, these herbs and florals are ready to be enjoyed. This set illustrated by Marcella Hawley features three different bouquets all designed to be set in an old fashioned mason jar for a down home feel. This 4" by 6" set also features two perfect all occasion sentiments as well. Wait until you see just how gorgesous this set is! If you like what you see on today’s designers’ posts, this set is available for pre-order now HERE!

On to my creation!

I stamped the cabbage rose in the set into the mason jar (a separate stamp!) using Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto Flourishes Classic White and then... let the fun begin with my Copic markers! I used these collections!

When it came to putting all the pieces together, I picked up My Mind's Eye Howdy Doody paper (it was once a part of a Flourishes 123 Create Kit!), a silver architectural brad  that I accented with a Prima Pastel Crysal, some crochet lace, and some ribbon from our Color Made Easy Collection called Baby Pink! Add some stitching and.. ta da! Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

Here's a closeup!

Sure is pretty! Love roses and that wood look paper goes wonderfully with the mason jar concept. Thanks for sharing and inspiring this country girl to go back to her roots ( and not the thistle ones I've been digging up for the last 2 nights).
