Flourishes September New Release Sneak Peek - Day 2

Holiday Topiaries

Welcome to Day 2 of our fabulous September release week! Today both of our Friends of Flourishes Team and our Design Team will be showcasing a wonderful new stamp set created by our beloved artist Marcella Hawley. Marcella has packed this beautiful 4x6 stamp set called "Holiday Topiaries" with an array of beautiful holiday decorated greenery and 3 seasonal sentiments to match their holiday vibe. This sweet holiday stamp set will surely make an appearance on your homemade cards, handmade gifts, tags and more this season!

We are also combining the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday for today's sneak peek!

The Timeless Tuesday Challenge this week is...

"Make a Good Impression" - Incorporate dry embossing somewhere on your card or project. It could be an embossing folder, stencils, or even a household item for your embossing....just make sure you "Make a Good Impression"! (FTTC237)

Here is my card using Holiday Topiaries :

No coloring, no problem! :) Marcella's illustrations are already beautiful enough with just outlines. I used the embossing folder to give some texture on the main image panel. I also embossed the elegant frame design on the magenta card base. I designed the card with this magenta and white only to keep it clean. It is not usual Christmas color combo but everybody likes to receive something different from now and then, don't we? :)



Supplies:
Holiday Topiaries
Classic White cardstock, Color Made Easy cardstock - Candy Pink
Memento - Lilac Posies
CME ribbon - Candy Pink/Festive Fuchsia, white pearls
Spellbinders dies, embossing folders

Well, this might not be a usual Christmas color, but it certainly should be...it's gorgeous! Love the embossing over the stamped image, and the embossing folder on the bg layer is the perfect frame. Beautiful!
