Sneak Peek Day 2: Poinsettia and Pine!

Hi all! And.... welcome to day two of Flourishes' sneak peek week! It's also full of fun because the Timeless Tuesday gals are ushering in a challenge and if you play, you could win Flourishes entire September Release (a $90 value!)! So get ready... today all the gals will be showing off a brand new set called.... 

Pair a beautiful poinsettia branch with some pine and holly and you have one beautiful image perfect to ring in the holiday season! This set, Poinsettia and Pine, penned by Marcella Hawley offers one large focal image, a small sprig of pine and holly along with four beautifully scripted sentiments -- all packed into a 4" by 6" set. By the looks of it, we know this one will be a hit! :-)

On to the challenge and my creation! The Timeless Tuesday gals are challenging you to A Pinterest Christmas!! All you have to do is find your Christmas inspiration photo on Pinterest, link it up to your blog and show off your Pinterest inspired creation! (By the way, did you know Flourishes has its own Pinterest Page with boards upon boards of inspiration? Check it out HERE!) 

I chose this photo on Pinterest, because I love the look of pink poinsettias and thought this variety was just too pretty for words! So... here's my inspiration... 


And, here's my creation....

I started by stamping the poinsettia on Classic White Card Stock with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. And then... I colored it up with Copic markers (see links below for the color collections that I used). Cut using a Spellbinders Classic Circles die and.. you're almost done! I grabbed some decorative paper from my scrap bin and then... added some lace and some red seam binding ribbon and... ta da! 

Here's a close up for you!


And that, my friends, is it! I hope you play along and in the mean time, be sure to visit the rest of the designers for some more Pinter-inspiration! 
And be sure to hop on over and see what the Design Team has whipped up as well using our new Poinsettia and Pine!
As you make the rounds, you'll notice that some of the gals are using Flourishes new 123 Create Kit called Rejoice -- perfect for Christmas card making! It's full of lush ribbon, color coordinated trims, bling and a handful of coordinating snowflake charms -- all for $20!  Check it out!


Thanks for stopping by everyone! The Flourishes fun continues all week, so be sure to check back! ;-)
