New Release - Lots of Thoughts

Well, we’ve arrived at our last day of December New Releases at Flourishes!  Haven’t they been true blossoming beauties?  Today, we’re pleased to bring you one more!  It’s an all occasion set that celebrates some of the most delightful events with wonderful playfullness!

LotsOfThoughtsGFX
 

This stamp set is called Lots of Thoughts for a reason! With six whimsical images illustrated by Marcella Hawley, you have just the right mix of sentiments for birthday, congratulations, thank you and cards of encouragement. It's the perfect set for any and all occasions! Set measures 4" by 6”. Ideas are blooming plentifully in our design team creations with this sweet set.


I thought I’d do something really sweet and cheerful with this adorable set.  It’s fantastic for so many events in life, and Marcy did such a great job with all the whimsical images.  I really love it!  

I began by stamping the bi-plane in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Flourishes Classic White card stock and then die cutting it out.  I love the idea of having a clear cardstock base for a plane up in the sky so that’s what I decided to use, adding some Color Made Easy True Blue cardstock in the background and some awesome patterned paper flags to accent the “congrats” sentiment printed on Color Made Easy - Poppy Cardstock.  


Sorry for the shine on the clear card stock! It’s so pretty, but not easy to photograph!  Simple accents of yellow enamel dots finish off the fishtale flags.

Remember,  while you’re hopping and looking at the Design Team creations, don’t forget to try to figure out….
