Flourishes January Release Day 1

FLLC010913 close-up
Hi all, and welcome to the first day of Flourishes’ January Sneak Peeks featuring three of the newest sets to hit the shelves. We know at this time of year you are looking for love when it comes to new stamps and we have a little bit of that! We also have some new sentiments and trendy words to jazz up the fronts of your cards! So, let’s get on with the show! First up, a set that packs a visual punch with inspiring and thoughtful words, perfect for cards of all kinds!
JustMyTypeGraphic
Just My Type by Marcella Hawley provides spunky sentiments that take the trend of fun typography and put it into words that you can use on your cards or creations.  And personally, I think this set screamschalkboard technique!” so that’s what I did!
FLLC010913
My sentiment from the set was stamped on black cardstock and I used an Inkssentials Ink Blending Tool to sponge some additional white ink around the cardstock edges, to give it that dusty, chalky look.  I embellished with a Classic and Classic Scallop Heart and tied on a Poppy button with some jute twine.  A few black Kaisercraft rhinestones on the upper left finished off my card.
Want to win this set?  All you need to do is figure out…
