Flourishes New Release Day 1

Hi all, and welcome to the very first day of Flourishes Sneak Peeks for JUNE! It's exciting because the sets being revealed this week aren't just unique for June -- they are part of an entire collection of stamp sets that will be released over the next year! It's called the Blossom Collection and each set released under this name will be designed to coordinate with the other pieces for all types of occassions! Use one set on it's own or slowly add to the collection  -- that's the beauty of it!

Today's set is the first part of this collection and features beautiful blooms perfect for summer!




Part of The Blossoms Collection, this beautiful array of Summer Blossoms illustrated by Marcella Hawley features a bouquet, corner stamps, and pieces to create your own borders or frames. Add in a trio of all occasion sentiments and you have the perfect set to create cards for every day correspondence. The set measures 4" x 6" and is the perfect companion to sister sets Happily Ever After and Letters in Blossom. If you like what you see, this set is available for pre-order now, just click HERE! 


Below is my card to share with you today using this beautiful new stamp set!  I really love that the flowers in this set are a little more whimsical and less-realistic than so many other Flourishes stamp sets and this gives me the freedom to color them almost any ol' way I want!  Totally fun, I think!  I used this week's CardPatterns Sketch #169 for my layout, and the colors come from this week's Color Throwdown #196 challenge!
