A Friend Is...


Welcome to another Flourishes Friday!  Today we’re focussing on our November Releases once again to show off all they have to offer!  This release was one of my FAVs we’ve had recently.  I love each and every set greatly!  Today I brought out another pretty one with this month’s set Friendship & Flowers.  I especially love the meaningful sentiments in this set and these pincushion flowers are a dream to colour!  They’re so showy looking too, really unique blooms.


This is a 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 sized card.  I began by stamping the pincushion flower onto Flourishes Classic Ivory card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then die cutting that with this gorgeous Spellbinder’s Die, Decorative Labels 22.  I stamped and cut out a second flower that I added by popping up on the design.  Colouring is with Copics.  


I stamped the sentiment in Memento Pistachio ink, added some brown lace, gold cording and some pretty sequins that match the Echo Park Reflections Fall designer paper.  


Inside the card I stamped the flowers in Memento Cantaloupe Ink (see they’re equally beautiful even if you don’t colour them!)





Join the rest of the girls as they show off some more from our November Release and remember TODAY is the last day you can purchase the sets as a discount!  We don’t want you to miss out!

Hurrah for sunflowers and the golden colors of sunset/fall!!! It's so nice to lengthen this time of year as much as we can because it's my favorite season of all ♥
