Light Up



Welcome to another Friday showing off Flourishes June Releases!  I LOVED playing with this month's sets :)  Today, I pulled out my favourite set (though that's really hard to say - because I really loved them all), S'more Fun.  I think the lantern is so sweet with the cluster of flowers around it, so I chose it today.  


I stamped the lantern twice onto Flourishes Classic white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colouring up the images with Copics, and then adding just the center of the lantern popped up on the design (below you can see that a little better).  I die cut that out with a Labels Twenty die, and then placed that onto one of our Flourishes Perfectly Pierced Classic Hourglass Die.  The designer papers here are Echo Park This and That.  




Isn't that little sentiment cute?  I just inked up part of the sentiment and placed it onto a Flourishes Classic Tags Die with Tiger Lily card stock, then doodled some little orange flowers just like the flowers around the lantern.  It reminds me of a song by Newsboys "When the Boys Light Up"...so I kept singing it when I was making it.  I added some matching seam binding and some black lace, button and twine.  


And here's the inside of the card stamped in Tangelo Memento Ink.  And now I bet you're singing another song in your head right??? :)  

Now please head on over and see the rest of the Design Team today and they're fun June Release creations and be sure to stop by the Flourishes Blog again today...we have another Designer Focus today on my friend Stacy Morgan!  It's your chance to CASE Stacy and win some Flourishes Goodies!
