Flourishes New Release #2 - Father's Day


It's the second day of new release sneak peeks at Flourishes and today we've got the new Father's Day set to share with you, another fabulous silhouette stamp set from the creative mind of Lauren Pope!

My card today features one of the three images from the set, stamped in Imperial Blue Versafine ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I cut out the image with a Labels Ones Nestabilities die, and added a sentiment flag cut with a Nested Pennant die and attached with a silver mini library clip.  The papers I used on my card are from the Authentique "Loyal" paper pad and my card layout is from the Card Positioning Systems sketch #264.

Hi Tammy,

Your cards made me cry today. Having lost my father more than 20 years ago, your cards made it possible to evoke the tender and wonderful moments my children and I spent with him. Your particular choice of image and sentiment made me remember all the times that bend on his knees and with his strong and tender arms stretch to us he would embrace and made you feel so safe in a world of so many uncertainties . My Father was a Unique man, I used to tell him that when he was born God broke the mold, he was perfect in every way, he was my Friend, my Confidant, my Teacher my HERO!!! Along the way I have encounter men with some of his attributes and qualities, but I have NEVER met one with ALL OF THEM!! That speaks volumes of my Father. Thanks for evoking this memories and teaching me to convert them from painful to joyous, that is the best compliment and tribute that I can give to a PERFECT MAN THAT I HAD THE HONOR AND PRIVILEGE TO CALL MY FATHER!!!

Cariños,
