Flourishes April Release Day 2 77

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, April 11, 2012 @ 10:29 PM | , , ,

Hello all and welcome to the Flourishes April Release week! One thing you'll notice, right off the bat, is that this release will have a very feminine feel! It's that time of year when we start to think about honoring the moms in our lives and watching parts of the world turn to spring! So, without further ado, let's sneak peek Flourishes second set! Today we are showing you the beautiful new Botanical Bookplates Vol. 2.  This set will coordinate with the same die released last month called Tailor Made Classic bookplate Die.
The Botanical Bookplates Vol. 2 set contains many beautiful images and sentiments. For my first card, I stamped the Pansies image on a piece of Flourishes Classic White Cardstock, colored using a variety of Copic Markers then cut using a Spellbinders Lattice Rectangle die template.
 I love to mix and match Flourishes stamp sets, so I stamped the From the (heart) sentiment which is from Tiny Flowers and Tags set and cut using a tag die from the Tailor-Made Classic Tags Die Set.
Next up is a card featuring a sweet Lily of The Valley image. To make this card, I stamped the image on a piece of Flourishes Classic White Cardstock, colored using various Copic Markers, cut using a Spellbinders Labels Twelve die template and layered on top of another label.
Again, I added a sentiment tag using a sentiment from Botanical Bookplates Vol. 2 and was cut using a tag die from Tailor-Made Classic Tags Die Set.
One of the ladies on our link list below will be picking a name from the comments on her blog post today. We don’t know which one it is… so the more blogs you leave comments on, the more chances you have to win!
