Hello Flourishes Friends.
Today I want to share with you the card I created using the sets, Mother’s Words of Wisdom, Bontanical Book Plate Vol 1, and Magnolias as well as the new Classic Bookplate Template and the 1,2,3 Create kit that are part of the March Release for Flourishes.
My first card was made using Mother’s Words of Wisdom. Mother’s Words of Wisdom takes some of the best quotes from Mother Theresa and brings them to life. All five sentiments in the set were designed to fit perfectly in this gorgeous frame of peonies. Set measures 4″ by 6″. Click HERE to see! I used the papers and other elements from the 1,2,3 Create Kit, Pretty In Pink. It was a joy to work with.
I colored the images with a soon to be released Flourishes Copic Collection Candy. This new collection has four wonderful pink alcohol markers that you will want in your collection. With our 1,2,3, Create Kits, you have three essential elements in one kit — paper, ribbon, and embellishments all color coordinated to make card making easy!

My second card was made using the Violas from Botanical Bookplates Vol. 1. These beautiful Violas and Snowdrops are from Marcella Hawley’s newest set for Flourishes . It features 2 focal images plus 2 smaller bookplate versions that are perfect for tags, or adornments. Click HEREto see! For my card I used a newly released Spellbinder die, Antique Frame and Accents cut out of lavender metallic cardstock from my stash. I had a great time using little white roses from Color Me Crazy (Prima) and Mini Hyacinth Daisies with Leaves . This is a “out of my normal box” move for me, but these are darling. I made a bow using my Becca Peg Bow Maker and Satin cotton lavender ribbon. The colors tie together wonderfully. I also added a Petal Pins – BEADS. I colored the viola with another soon to be released Flourishes Copic Collection New Violets.
To sweeten the release Flourishes had custom Tailor-made Dies manufactured by Spellbinders Paper Arts that coordinate with Flourishes’ stamped images. Classic Bookplate Template Die is a perfect match for our new set Bookplate Botanical Vol. 1, creating a beautiful cut and embossed shape every time! Click HERE to see for yourself!
For my last card a southern favorit,e Magnolias. Lush and sweeping flowers so sweet you can almost smell their pure fragrance. This 4″ by 6″ set features a beautiful focal image, a corner floral piece and a border of leaves, allowing you to stamp and create accents in a whole host of ways. Click HERE to see this set in its full glory!
For my card I used a soft sky cardstock, Spellbinder new die Floral Ovals. I used a set of Marthat Stewart corner punch and punch I purchased at Michael’s. I have to admit that using the Martha Stewart Corner punch and straight punch proved to be labor intensive, and not at all user friendly. I think I may have to drop Martha a note and ask her to check out this problem. I do like the finished product dispite some flaws. I used Copic in very soft ranges to color this set.
I hope you have enjoyed this round-up of our release. Remember the New Release bundle is specially priced and that offer ends on Friday March 23rd.
