Flourishes New Release - It's All in the Details



Hello friends!

 Is it Christmas yet??

Today's set is called "It's All in the Details", and it is perfect for tags, envelopes, corners of cards... anywhere you'd like a little extra detail!   I used the pretty Flourishes Keyhole Die to cut out my image that I had watercolored with Distress Markers.  My attempt at handlettering the 'You' and 'Me' reminds me that I haven't been practicing lately - lol!!   

Here's a look at the set and the die...




Be sure to hop around and leave some love along the way! And be sure to comment on the Flourishes blog, too.  See you tomorrow with one more new set!

Flourishes New Release - Coastal Christmas


Hello friends!

 I'm back today with another Flourishes LC card!

The set I am working with today is called "Coastal Christmas".  It has lots of lovely non-snow Christmas images, but I wanted a card that could be used any time of the year so I chose this seashell wreath and colored it in neutrals and beach tones.  I also used one of the sentiments that was more "every day"-ish.  I watercolored the image with Distress Markers and added a little embossing and twine for texture.

Here's a look at the set...



Be sure to hop around and see all the pretties - and leave some love along the way! And be sure to comment on the Flourishes blog, too.  We'll be giving away a Coastal Christmas set to one lucky commenter there!

Flourishes New Release - Winter Blooms


Welcome to my stop on the Flourishes New Release blog hop!  I'm happy to be joining the team and I am looking forward to expanding my artistry to include the timeless and elegant style of Flourishes LC stamps.  These stamps lend themselves to watercoloring or copic markers, so I enjoyed using my Distress Markers while I was working on the cards for this week of new releases.

The name of today's set is Winter Blooms and the image I chose was the Paperwhite.  It is such a delicate flower!  Here's the set in full...

You Are Wonderful!


First, a lesson.

If you are going to do a color challenge, it is a wise idea to have the colors in front of you when you pick out your paper, or you might end up with a totally different shade of red than is shown.  Oh dear.  I had the idea right!  Red, Yellow and two shades of green + neutrals.


Oh well, I'll link this card and then I'll just have to play along again!! :)

So, I watercolored the Mice in the Cupboard from Your Next Stamp with my Distress Markers and matted it with cardstock and patterned paper.  I embossed the sentiment with clear embossing powder after stamping it with VersaFine black ink.

Thanks for dropping by! 
You are wonderful!! : )
