Let's Get Together...Valentine


Three new stamp sets for Flourishes are fresh off the polymer presses and we're happy to say,this release is one that truly celebrates the different occassions that matter to you - a new home, a birthday, big events. Each stamp set definitely has a "Celebrating Home" flavor. How
would you like to win all three of the brand new stamp sets? Visit the Flourishes blog to find out about our "Celebrating Home" challenge! The winner will be revealed on Friday January 16 at our release party chat over at the Splitcoaststampers Flourishes forum!



This card was inspired by our silverware at home. This is the special occasion silverware for guest and special occasions, but wouldn't this be a very *inviting* Invitation to your Sweetheart for a lovely dinner for two?


The card is made from beautiful clear cardstock from Flourishes, and stamped with the flourish from the Siberian Iris set with White Stazon. Because of the way I trimmed it with the Top Note die, it left spaces in the fold where I could fit ribbon through, so I tied these elegant ribbons through it.


I've stamped the place setting from the You Are Invited set, 2 x, coloring the first set with Copics, A silver Zig Painty (for the silverware), and Lumiere (to give the plate and cup the look of fine china). Then I trimmed out the place setting raising up the plate and cup with dimensionals and just gluing down the silverware. Very elegant I think!






So pop on by to the Flourishes blog...you don't want to miss out on winning these new release sets...it's going to be a great week ahead showing them to you! And if you're ever inspired by something I make and want to make a purchase at Flourishes - would you be so kind to put my name christineo (as in lower case o not zero) in the promotion code box when you order? Flourishes gives me a little bonus when you do! Have a great Saturday!
