Flourishes New Release Day Three

Hi all, and welcome to the third day of Flourishes’ fabulous November Release Sneak Peeks! Today, we take you to a far away place with picturesque scenery, a glass of wine and some fresh picked figs for the tasting. Are you ready for a picnic in Florence? Well we are! Take a sneak peek at this lush new set!

From the rich Italian landscape host to Cypress trees and sunflowers to a table set with wine and figs, this set called Dreaming of Florence is sure to add a dreamy feel to your cards or creations. This 4 by 6″ set illustrated by Marcella Hawley even offers a handful of beautiful, all occasion sentiments.
My card today uses this beautiful new set, along with a sneak peek of a new die that you’ll hear more about tomorrow!

I colored this beautiful image with a huge variety of Copics from the Flourishes collections on Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock.  I used one of the new dies (that you’ll see in full glory tomorrow!) to cut a piece of eggplant cardstock for a mat.  Then I used the die as a stencil, placed it over my stamped image, traced inside the die and then cut it out to achieve this layering.  My cardstock and paper edges are all distressed and inked with Antique Linen ink, and I used a Labels 8 Nestabilities die to create the bracket at the bottom of my card.  The sentiment is also from the new stamp set, and I have it matted on a piece of eggplant cardstock cut out with the Tailor-Made Classic Tags die.
