Sneak Peek... Home for the Holidays!


Welcome to our September New Release Week at Flourishes! We're so excited to have five gorgeous new sets to show off to you this month all with a Christmas and Holiday celebration theme! Can you believe there are only 106 days until Christmas? We know it's always great to get a jump start on those projects and cards early, so here we are with wonderful inspiration just for you. From our home to yours, this beautiful Home for the Holidays set offers welcoming words to share this Christmas season. Illustrated by Marcella Hawley, this stately door is sure to send heartfelt seasons greetings to homes both near and far. The set also offers an accent swag and three beautifully scripted sentiments as well. The set measures 4" by 6". It's such a beautiful set of images and our Design Team is going to show off how festive it is today!

Thanks for joining me today!  The minute I saw this fabulous holiday stamp set, I knew I wanted to make a shaped card to match the shape of the decorated arch.  So I cut my card base out "Red Devil" cardstock from the Color Made Easy ~ Poppy Collection and then I cut a smaller frame using "Patch" cardstock from the Color Made Easy ~ Pistachio Collection.
I first stamped my front door image onto Flourishes Classic White Cardstock.  I took my plaid paper and used it as my basis for all of the colours on my card front.  I used a lot of bright greens and even some soft turquoise blues!  I used some Crackle medium on all of my windows to make them look like stained glass.

Here are all the Copic Collections that I used to colour in my image today...

I decided my card just wouldn't do without a decorated inside too!  I highlighted my stamped sentiment from the "Home for the Holidays" stamp set using Copic Markers...
