White Picket Fence

Hi all! Just like we do every Friday after our release, our designers pick up their favorite new sets and let their creativity go crazy with a "Free for All Friday!" The goal is to show off those new images and give you even more ideas on how to use them!


I decided to play again with the lovely Garden Gate set  (that I obviously love so much!) and our new 123 Create Kit called Stationary Noted...it's just so gorgeous.  I stamped the gate image onto Flourishes Classic White with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I die cut out the shape with this gorgeous Spellbinders die (Decorative Labels 22), and then mounted it on our Flourishes Perfectly Pierced Classic Window Die, on Color Made Easy True Blue cardstock.  I wanted to keep a cool and neutral palette to go with the papers, so the colouring with copics is all C00 - C7's and then the little pops of red roses, and blue delphinium.  


Don't you just love the gray ribbon sliding through the die?  I think this kit and this set are Flourishes at it's finest!  






Also, time is running out for our New Release Bundle Bargain! Today is the last day to get all of our new sets at 10% off when you purchase them in a bundle. If you want to know more, just click HERE to see the bundle in the Flourishes store!

Ok, now it's time to hop on over and see.....
Hope you have a fabulous weekend and we’ll see you all back here soon!

Simply Stunning! I really love those papers and colors in the 123 Kit and the way you colored your Garden Gate image in, it's all so Perfect :)

Awesome idea Christine to use the cool grey palette on the gate. While some stampers/card makers stay away from using grey it's one of my very favorite ways to bring interest and even emotion to a card. This is beautiful with the pop of a primary red and the blue on the delphinium. Lovely layout too. I also want to say that the blue stripped dp was a perfect soft choice for the background. A beautiful and very versatile stamp set, and a beautiful card.
