Summer Blossoms


Welcome to the very first day of Flourishes Sneak Peeks for JUNE! It's exciting because the sets being revealed this week aren't just unique for June -- they are part of an entire collection of stamp sets that will be released over the next year! I'm so excited about them, and the whole concept.  It's called the Blossom Collection and each set released under this name will be designed to coordinate with the other pieces for all types of occassions! Use one set on it's own or slowly add to the collection -- that's the beauty of it! Today's set is the first part of this collection and features beautiful blooms perfect for summer!

I've created a simple card with some of the corner blossoms of the set then colored them vibrantly to match this pretty Picadilly paper from Basic Grey.  Here is a closeup of the coloring....I also added some pretty scrollwork dies with my Spellbinder's Dies.  



This set is part of The Blossoms Collection, and has a beautiful array of summer blossoms illustrated by Marcella Hawley features a bouquet, corner stamps, and pieces to create your own borders or frames. Add in a trio 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 you'll see this week  Happily Ever After SS199 and Letters in Blossom SS198. If you like what you see, this set is available for pre-order now, just click HERE! The design team has been busy creating beautiful things with this stunning set!
