Creamy Poinsettias


Welcome to Free for all Friday where we show you another look at the Newest Releases from Flourishes!  This release was fantastic wasn't it?  Some gorgeous sets to get you ready for Christmas creations.  


I decided to pull out all the stops on this one!  I wanted to showcase this gorgeous poinsettia from the very beautiful Poinsettia and Pine set.  And I love the elegance of creamy/green poinsettias at Christmas, so here you go....

I began by stamping on Flourishes Classic Ivory Cardstock with Memento Ink, and then coloring up two poinsettias with Copics (see Collections below) then cutting out a few of the petals and popping them up.  I added some warmth to the whole design by using some Antique Linen Distress Ink and my Ink Blending tool to the main image and the Spellbinder's shape behind the main image, as well as giving the designer paper (Kaiser - December 25) some warming up...it gives it a better tone to match the poinsettias.  And you just might be able to see a hint of glitter from the Gelly Roller Glitter pen in the center.  


There are lots of beautiful accents.  Some pretty Nestabling Rhinestones to accent the corner, some crushed velvet ribbon, plus a double bow of Satin Ribbon in Green and some pretty iridescent purple.  then I finished off the bottom of the card with some beautiful Spellbinders Edgeabilities dies.  Classic Petal and Classic Edges One.  






Join the rest of the Design Team to see their beautiful creations with the September New Releases.  And remember that today is your LAST day to order the New Release Bundle at a 10% discount.  Don't want you to miss out!

And finally our Christmas Catalogue in all its beauty...is now available to order in print version for $8.  I have to say, Julie really outdid herself on this publication.  You'll find the beautiful Flourishes Christmas sets in it (and sneak peeks at NEXT month's sets!) as well as Tutorials and inspiration with samples throughout!
