Flourishes Free for all Friday


Hello and welcome to Friday!  Today the Flourishes Senior Design Team is pulling out some of our sets that are on the overstock or retiring list and giving them a new spin! We always love when we can do that, because it makes you fall in love with those sets all over again
I'm excited to share the card I made using the All that Glitters set, along with a sentiment from this month's release Winter Berries.    Unfortunately, today is proof that the retired sets are going fast.  By the time I went to link the All that Glitters stamp set in my post, it was gone.  Flourishes does have a another ornament set though called Holiday Sparkle.  

I used the clip-on bird because I decorate my tree with ones that are almost exactly the same.  And mine are red, so naturally I colored my bird red and added some glitter to it, along with the pine boughs, with a Quickie Glue pen and some Ultra Fine Prisma glitter.  

The beautiful paper I used, is So This is Christmas by Carta Bella. and the mats are from the Color Made Easy Pistachio Paper Collection.  I also used a couple of Flourishes dies:  Perfectly Pierced Classic Frames Template, and Classic Window Template, along with a tree from Cottage Cutz's Rustic Sign and Trees die set.  I inked up the background using Tumbled Glass and Shabby Shutters Ranger Distress Inks, and punched a border using a EK Success punch.  Lastly I added a couple of Sequins (Teresa Collins) to the upper right corner for a little more bling.

Here are the links to the Copics I used:

Now we invite you to take a trip on over to the rest of the Design Team to see what they have up their creative sleeves today:

What a gorgeous card you’ve designed Tosha! From the tree to the glitter on the bird…amazing! I grew up with an ornament like this on our tree so I’ve always had such a soft spot for this set :) I wish I still had one of those pretty birds!

Girl... you have a way of turning a stamp set on its head and using it in a way that is so beautiful and unexpected -- this one just goes to show. You are so creative. LOVE your style!!!!

What a beauty, Tosh. I love the die frame you chose and the die cut tree is darling. I have a few different packs of bird ornaments just like these as well. :)

Lovely Christmas card, that tree is awesome. I like the design and your sparkle girlie.
And no it was DQ this week and we didn't think the funny appeal of a picture would work this time. bahahha...
