Flourishes December Release Preview ~ Day 1


 


NumbersInBlossomGraphicHello Flourishes friends! Welcome to our December Sneak Peeks! Once again we’re proud to begin our New Release Sneak Peeks to you, they have a wonderful theme of “blossoming". Today’s set joins a gorgeous family of sets and many of you have been looking for it to complete the collection. Introducing Numbers in Blossom.

Part of the special Flourishes Blossoms Collection, numbers never looked so pretty! This 4 by 6" set features hand-drawn numerals, by Marcella Hawley, that have been embellished with beautiful florals. This set offers a one-of-a-kind way to create gorgeous correspondence, birthday or anniversary items, or even home decor. This set is the perfect companion to sister sets Happily Ever After, Letters in Blossom and Summer Blossoms. Blossoming inspiration is yours along the way today with our talented design team and this set.

I decorated a Christmas tree with a vintage theme this year, and thought it would be fun to add a House Luminary with the number "25" on it for Christmas.  So, after putting together my little house ornament (which is from a kit designed by Cathe Holden from this years Spellbound Event that I attended in November), I added the "fussy cut" numbers.  I started by stamping them, with Gray Flannel Memento ink, onto Flourishes Classic Ivory Cardstock, and colored them with two Copic Collection sets:  Lenten Rose and Olive Green.  I then added some sparkle with Silver German Glass Glitter to the numbers and Prisma Glitter to the flowers.  I made the flower on the front by gathering some sparkly ribbon and adding a rhinestone to the center.  That about sums up my project for today.

eta:  I was asked to show a complete picture of my Victorian tree.  It's actually 3 different sized trees put together in an antique milk crate.  I didn't light it up so the ornaments, flowers, and lace would be more visible.  All in all, it's about 4ft tall.  Some of the ornaments are antique, some are handmade, and others are newer.  



Thank you so much for dropping by!
Happy Stamping!!
