Flourishes October New Release Sneak Peek! - Day 3


Happy Friday!!

Well dear stamping friends, the sneaks are over and we're taking the lid off Flourishes' October Release! Are you ready to see all three of these sets in their full glory? Well, they are all live, right now, in the Flourishes store HERE!

Now on to our final offering, one that is a gorgeous display of botanical beauty!

Named after the stars that lit the way for the birth of Jesus, this beautiful star-shaped flower embraces a meaning of purity, hope and happiness. Illustrated by Marcella Hawley, this set offers a beautiful and sweet scented way to ring in the Christmas season. This 4 by 6" set also offers four scripted sentiments perfect for your seasonal creations!

Flourishes is also unveiling something else...... just in time for Christmas!


You'll want to grab a copy for sure! This full-color 20 page catalog features dozens of sample ideas, photos of all of Flourishes Christmas stamp sets plus three fun-filled, step-by-step tutorials designed to help with your holiday gift giving! Just click HERE to see our new catalog in the Flourishes store!


Here is my card using Star of Bethlehem:

To tell the truth, I never knew what the Star of Bethlehem flowers were until I got this set...I had to google them and I just had to color with exactly what they looked like, lol. Maybe I will color with different shades next time. They were very pretty on the pictures I searched. I hope my coloring was close enough... I needed a color to pop and I think using red was just right for the image and Christmas/Holiday.



Supplies: 
Classic White cardstock, Color Made Easy cardstock - Sunflower, Evergreen, MME designer paper pad
Memento - Tuxedo Black, Pistachio
Copic markers - Olive Green, Sunflower, E40, 41 and Y000

I looked at your finished card for quite a long time. It made me feel wonderful looking at the special color combination. The soft yellow, the white flowers an every-so light touch of pop with the red. Thank you for your creativity.
