Let The Peeks Begin!

Hi all and welcome to day 1 of Flourishes April Sneaks! Oh my goodness, where does the time go? We are excited though because our April release brings a bevy of beauty that is ripe for spring. Starting with this little number......
SpringBlossomsGraphic

Did you recognize the flow of these flowers? Well, you should! This gorgeous stamp set is the final set in our Blossoms Collection, this beautiful array of spring blossoms illustrated by Marcella Hawley features a bouquet, corner stamps, and pieces to create your own borders or frames. Add in four of all occasion sentiments and you have the perfect set to create cards for every day correspondence. Set measures 4 by 6" and is the perfect companion to sister sets Happily Ever After SS199 and Letters in Blossom SS198. If you like this set, you might also like our Summer Blossoms set featuring summer florals, our Autumn Blossoms set featuring Autumn florals, our our set Winter Blossoms with gorgeous late winter/early spring blooms.
I stamped one of the smaller blossom images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Flourishes Classic White card stock.

   I colored the image with Copic markers, using BG0000 and BG10 to add shadows around the blooms.  The blue shading makes the white snowdrops stand out better.

I used Spellbinders Classic Ovals to cut out the image, which I stamped the sentiment above, and sponged on some Antique Linen Distress ink with the die still in place.  I then used a Perfectly Pierced Victorian Ovals die for the mat.  All of the patterned paper is from My Minds Eye Stella and Rose/Gertie. It’s tied simply with some kraft jute and a button.   I love gingham and I didn’t want to cover it up ;)
Well, just as we have done in past release weeks, we offer our little guessing game of….
