Parties and Presents

Free for All Friday with Border 

Today we're excited to bring you one more look at this month's New Release Sets at Flourishes!  Its our chance to show off some more from our favorite sets, and with five gorgeous stamps this month, there's so much to choose from! Remember that today is the LAST day you can purchase the New Release Bundle at a discount, so we don't want you to miss out on the deal!


I decided to play with the very fun That's a Wrap set, and to show off that it's not only a Christmas set, but can be used for many other occasions as well!  

I began by inking up the larger bow image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and stamping it on designer paper, Carta Bella Hello Again.  Really pretty shades and prints in this pack!  I loved how the flowery page could pair well with the chevron design so I tried to create a wrapped package on the card.  The bow is stamped on the flowery design, then coloured with Copics to give it definition, but to also still show the design of the patterned paper.  Then I popped it up on this chevron sheet that I had sewn down on some Flourishes Color Made Easy-Tiger Lily Cardstock, and some Flourishes Classic White.  



To make it a Birthday card I used the sentiment from another of our recent sets Pinwheels and Popsicles.  Then to make it look even more like a party card I added some fun sequins from the Memorabilia Collection to finish it all off! 

Here's the Copics I used:


Come and see what other beauties the Design Team has to show off for you today!

I do love this stamp set! I can see how it would be so much fun, and certainly not just for Christmas. Love how you used designer paper for the bow and then shaded it for depth. A very cute and fun card, Christine!
