Good Morning Flourishes Friends! Today is not only another fun-filled Timeless Tuesday Challenge – it’s Day 2 of Flourishes Sneak Peeks for Christmas. Today all of the gals will be showing off a brand new set called…..
Pair a beautiful poinsettia branch with some pine and holly and you have one beautiful image perfect to ring in the holiday season! This set, penned by Marcella Hawley offers one large focal image, a small sprig of pine and holly along with four beautifully scripted sentiments — all packed into a 4″ by 6″ set. By the looks of it, we know this one will be a hit!
On to the challenge! This week I am challenging you to: A Pinterest Christmas!! All you have to do is find your Christmas inspiration photo on Pinterest, link it up to your blog and show off your Pinterest inspired creation! The good news? If you play along in our challenge this week, you have a chance at winning ALL FIVE of Flourishes new Christmas sets being released this week! That’s a $90 value! (By the way, did you know Flourishes has its own Pinterest Page with boards upon boards of inspiration? Check it out HERE!)
I chose this photo on Pintrest, because it really intrigued me to stamp on cookies!
For my cookies, I stamped Flourishes “Poinsettia and Pine” onto the frosting, then watercolored the images in with food coloring. Then I added them to a cookie gift box design that I cut out with my Silhouette Cameo.
For my gift tag, I stamped an image from Flourishes new Trimmed With Love set colored in with Copics, onto a diecut that I popped up. Then I matted it with some Bo Bunny paper used from Flourishes Rejoice 123 Kit that also comes with the silver cording you see on my tag.
Here are the Copic marker Collections I used on my card and tag:
