Flourishes November Release DAY 3!!!!

Hi all and welcome to DAY 3 of Flourishes’ fabulous November Release Sneak Peeks!!!

Today, we take you to a far away place with picturesque scenery, a glass of wine and some fresh picked figs for the tasting. Are you ready for a picnic in Florence? Well we are! Take a sneak peek at this lush new set!


From the rich Italian landscape host to Cypress trees and sunflowers to a table set with wine and figs, this set called Dreaming of Florence is sure to add a dreamy feel to your cards or creations. This 4 by 6" set illustrated by Marcella Hawley even offers a handful of beautiful, all occasion sentiments.



I created the card base with the awesome Flourishes Classic White CS. The second layer was scored on the top and next I added some Design Paper and Ribbon from this months new 123 Create Kit - For the Record. On the bottom of the DP I added some White Lace Trim and the Black Kaiser Rhinestones. My main focal point was created with a fabulous new Flourishes Spellbinder Die........that's COMING SOON!!! I simple stamped the image onto the die and started coloring it with these Copic Markers ~ B000, E40, E42, E47, YG11, G82, Y21, YR07 and R14..voila..all done!
