Irish Blessings


I've bundled up some love for you in this last day of Sneak Peeks from Flourishes.  Tonight these sets will be released!  I hope you can join us for the release party!  Today it's a great set called Irish Blessings filled with spring time and friendship, it's so pretty!  Wouldn't this be a pretty March Bouquet to receive? 

I found this great new Martha Stewart punch that is a border of Hydrangeas and I thought it would be a perfect pairing to this bundle of shamrocks and flowers.  I colored the bundle with the Meadow Copic Collection with some deep RV69 and RV99 on the flowers and bundle.  I added some texture with the petals embossed and had some pretty delicate accents with the pearls too. 


Now I really really hoped to play more with this set, but ran out of time....I HOPE to do something more on Friday and add it to this post!  There's just so much in this set I want to play with!

For now I want to invite you to the release party tonight at 8 pm MTN Time (9 pm CST) at the Flourishes SCS Forum.  There are so many fun games and chatter and a first hand look at the new sets.

Leslie Miller said...

Oooooooh, ahhhhhhh! Love this gorgeous card, Christine! I really thought that was a shamrock border at first. How perfect! Gosh, I've seen so much purple used with this set I'm wondering if there's a tradition I'm not familiar with. Just a coincidence? Love it, though!

Hi Christine-

I loved your section on your 3 favorite mediums to work with...well, 3 of them!:) You are wonderful with all of them!

I just bought the entire set and some other goodies from Flourishes! I can't wait to use that tea set...and I am planning (as of today) to paint my walls crisp white in my art room, and using their "tea rose" stamp on one of my walls. It is such a beautiful stamp!

I can't wait to see what other ways you will use those stamps!

He IS Able,
