Flourishes October New Release Sneak Peek! - Day 1

Pin It
Hello all and welcome to day one of Flourishes sneak peeks for October! The clock is ticking to get those cards and creations done before the holidays hit. We're happy to report Flourishes has a handful of new sets guaranteed to help you shine this Christmas! Our first set is one that delivers an elegant flair!


Flourishes has taken the beautiful Cotoneaster plant and gave it a holiday flair with this new 4" by 6" set illustrated by Sam Pickard. The long and lean berry spray will add a dash of elegance and pop to all of your holiday cards and creations. We've paired this lovely image with six scripted sentiments crafted by the talented Dina Kowal.



Here is my card using Winter Berries:

I stamped the berries image randomly to create the background mat. After coloring the mat, I designed the sentiment piece. It was layered with decorative border, lace trim, red striped ribbon, Spellbinders die cut label and red pearls.



Supplies:
Winter Berries
Classic White Cardstock, Color Made Easy Cardstock - Evergreen, Rich Browns
Memento - Espresso Truffle, Lady bug, Distress Ink - Antique Linen
Copic markers - Poppy, Evergreen
lace trim, red striped ribbon, red pearls
Classic Hourglass die set, Spellbinders die, decorative edger







The Design Team created some wonderful creations showing off these beautiful winter berries. While you're hopping and looking at their cards, don't forget to try to figure out....
