Flourishes New Release Day Two

Hi all, and welcome to day 2 of Flourishes’ fabulous November Release Sneak Peeks! Today, we have a cozy offering that is sure to warm the hearts of those who receive creations made from this set!  It’s one full of images to help you tell that special someone that you’ve stitched up something for them with love! Want to take a peek?
StitchedForYouGraphic-444x550
Whether you knit, sew or quilt, this set called Stitched For You is perfect for those hand-stitched gifts or home-spun cards and creations! Illustrated by Marcella Hawley, this set features 3 main images plus a handful of mix and match sentiments perfect for all occasion cards and gifts!
For my sneak peeks today, I created a set of tags for a dear friend.  Fran is a lady I work with… I’ve known her since I started my job back in February and have come to absolutely adore her.  About 6-7 months ago, she took up knitting as a hobby and loves it very much… so much so that I’ve even worked some half days for her so she can go to a knitting group meeting at her church!  Fran recently announced her retirement, and I know that means she’s going to be knitting even more in her days of leisure coming up so I made this little set of tags for her to attach to her hand-knitted gifts.

Each tag was made using the Labels 11 Nestabilities die.  I used the new Stitched for You Silhouette cut file with Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock,
and stamped each image to match my cardstock with Ranger Distress Inks in Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey, Worn Lipstick, Tumbled Glass and Peeled Paint, plus Memento Rich Cocoa.  And I used the wonderful new Color Made Easy system buttons on the top of each tag for a little embellishment.

On the back of each tag I added some sentiments from the set with room for Fran to write a greeting.

Tammy,
What a wonderful gift. I'm sure she will use them and smile each time she sends one off. I bet she keeps one for herself hanging on her knitting basket.
