Flourishes Love

Hello and welcome to day one of Flourishes' fabulous sneak peeks for January! We have three new sets coming your way designed to deliver a little love to someone else's life! The calendar might say winter but we're sure these Valentine sets will WARM your heart!

Introducing...

This classic set -- called From the Heart -- penned by Becky Fleck offers an antique flavor for Valentine's Day! An ornate heart stands as a focal point and is a perfect companion to Spellbinders Classic Heart Nestabilities die (S4-136) and Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Heart Nestabilities Dies (S4-137). A curled banner is the perfect accent -- allowing a few of the sentiments to be stamped inside! Would you like to win this set? All you need to do is leave some love in the form of a comment on the blogs below! Why? You need to try to figure out…



My card today not only showcases the new stamp set, but also uses this weeks Color Throwdown colors. Broni is hosting this weeks great color challenge. Love her inspiration picture!

I used paper from the MME Stella and Rose paper pad called Hattie, stamping the heart image on patterned paper and embossing in white. I stamped the banner on white cardstock and added the sentiment, then cutting it out and sponging around the edges and popping it up on the heart. I loved using these non traditional colors for a Valentine’s Day card. Could also be just a card to say I love you, anytime too!

I used a pearl scallop trim from Recollections across the bottom and tied a heart shaped lock charm to the twill. The other pearls we cut from a larger cluster.
