Welcome to day 2 of Flourishes Sneak Peeks for our March Release! Today we are actually unveiling not only a brand new stamp set but a coordinating die to make sure that your image is cut and embossed perfectly, each and every time. Are you ready for a peek?
And, it’s matching die….
Our new Botanical Bookplates Vol. 1 set might scream spring, but pair it with this matching die and you’re sure to create beautiful cards all year long with Violas and Snowdrops that are as beautiful as those in real life! This new set illustrated by Marcella Hawley features two large focal images plus two smaller bookplate versions that are perfect for tags, or adornments on cards or creations. Add in 5 beautifully scripted sentiments, and you have the makings of beautiful creativity. Botanical Bookplates Vol. 1 was designed to match our Tailor-made Classic Bookplate Die for a perfectly cut and embossed image each time!
I absolutely LOVE that Marcella designed stamps in the Botanical Bookplates Vo. 1 stamp set showcasing Schneegloeckchen. I used to love watching them popping up back home in Germany as a first sign of Spring. They were such a pretty sight after long winters, a promise that spring was just around the corner.
I cut three pieces of white cardstock with Flourishes new Tailor-Made Classic Bookplates dies. The bookplate snow bell image was stamped three times in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored with Copic Markers ( Leaves: YG01, YG03, YG17 Flower heads: Y00, Y04, W1 Background: BG0000, BG000). Smooch Glitz Frost was added over the petals.
A thin strip of white cardstock was taped above a 2 3/4″ x 5 5/16″ piece of My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline patterned paper. The edges of the paper were sanded and another piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with a Lace Doily Accent die was adhered underneath the paper. The edges were stitched before a piece of May Arts ribbon was tied around the layers.
The strip was adhered to the card base, a 5 5/16″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Kraft cardstock, folded in half. A sentiment from the same set was stamped on a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with a Fancy Tag die. The inner part was colored with Copic Marker BG0000 before the tag was adhered above the lower edge of the two bookplates on the right. Baby Bling Rhinestones on the Lattice edge finish off the card.
