Sneak Peeks Day 1: Numbers in Blossom!

Hello Flourishes friends! Welcome to our December Sneak Peeks! Once again we’re proud to begin our New Release Sneak Peeks to you, they have a wonderful theme of “blossoming". Today’s set joins a gorgeous family of sets and many of you have been looking for it to complete the collection!

Introducing…. 

  NumbersInBlossomGraphic   

Part of the special Flourishes Blossoms Collection, numbers never looked so pretty! This 4 by 6" set features hand-drawn numerals by Marcella Hawley that have been embellished with beautiful florals. This set offers a one-of-a-kind way to create gorgeous correspondence, birthday or anniversary items, or even home decor. Set is the perfect companion to sister sets Happily Ever After, Letters in Blossom and Summer Blossoms.


Well, this card above is one that was made WELL in advance! My mother-in-law's birthday isn't until May but I thought she might appreciate a stamped creation since she is a card maker as well! She doesn't stamp really, she quills, which is a skill that I haven't learned the patience for! She is a national award winner for her work and she "tried" to teach me... to no avail! So, this one above is for her! 

I cut my numbers out using the new Silhouette cut file that goes with the new Numbers in Blossom stamp set. I  stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and then colored it all up with Copic Markers (see my list below for a look at the colors that I used.) The rest is die cutting some circles from the Echo Park Everyday Eclectic Paper, adding a doily, some pearls and... of course... glitter glue! The Happy Birthday sentiment is also in the set and was stamped on a strip of paper that I notched out the ends of to look like a pennant style flag. 


And that, my friends, is it!  Blossoming inspiration is yours along the way today with our talented design team and this set. And, while you’re hopping and looking at their creations, don’t forget to try to figure out….
