Hi all and welcome to the final day of Flourishes’ Release Week! And, guess what? If you like what you’ve seen on our designers’ blogs, I’m happy to report that all three of Flourishes’ new sets for March are in the Flourishes store!! Just click HERE to see for yourself!
Are you ready to see our last set being revealed today? It’s a beauty with blossoms that are just about as lovely as you can get without being the real thing!
Marcella Hawley’s newest set called Magnolias features lush and sweeping flowers so sweet, you can almost smell their pure fragrance! This 4″ by 6″ set features a beautiful focal image, a corner floral piece and a border of leaves, allowing you to stamp and create accents in a whole host of ways. This set also features six touching sentiments perfect for all occasions.
For my card I stamped the big image of Magnolias in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on white cardstock. It was cut with the largest Classic Rectangle Nestabilities die and the Out of the Box Technique and colored with Copic Markers (Petals: YR30, YR31, T1 Petal Center: YG13 Background: BG0000, BG000). The edges of the rectangle not covered with the flower were stitched.
To create a lattice background for my recangle, I cut one full Lattice Doily Square and another partial square. From the full square, I cut off one side. Next I added Scor-Tape to the edge on the bottom edge of the former full square and the cut edge of the partial square and adhered them together to create my lattice rectangle.
A 2 3/4″ x 5″ strip of My Mind’s Eye Patterned Paper was adhered to a 3 7/8″ x 5″ piece of the same paper pack. The edges were sanded and stitched. May Arts Ribbon was threaded to one of the Lattice openings before the image was adhered to the paper. The ribbon was tied into a bow and the layers were adhered to a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with the second smallest Grand Scallop Rectangle Nestabilities die.
A sentiment from the set was stamped in Tuxedo black Memento Ink over a piece of MME paper, that had been cut and embossed with the smallest Petite Oval Nestabilities die. It was adhered over a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with a Fancy Tag die. It was adhered to the upper right of the image. A few Baby Bling Rhinestones finish off the card.
