July Release-Day 3 Flowers & Frames

Hello Friends,

It's already day three of our release and we have another new set to share with you.  This is a new style for Flourishes and I hope you will like it.  The set is called Flowers & Frames and it was penned by Marcella Hawley.  It is new way to add frames to your art, in an artistic manner.  I used it on my card for Passion Vine yesterday.  The frames give you the oportunity to simply place words withing the frames or to use the frames to mask off areas you don't want covered.

Here's a sneak at the set.
Here is my card I made today using the set.





I used only the set images in my card, coloring the images with tons of Copic markers...maybe too many to list today. I stamped the image on Classic White cardstock then colored the image and cut it close.  I used my Copic air gun to add a creamy look to the paper, then layered it onto a die cut made from Classic Ivory Paper. I made a "Becca Bow" added a small butterfly that I colored with a Copic Marker.



Here is the card I showed yesterday, see the frame and how I laced it into the Passion Vine flower.  I think this is a basis for many creative concepts.  I can't wait to see what all of you create with this new style for Flourishes.


There is a Noon Challenge today and I will be back with another card.  Hope you will come back then.

Now, please visit the design team to see their beautiful creations:



Thanks for stopping in the Atelier today.

Ciao,

                                     


Supplies Used

  17. This set may be a new style for Flourishes, but I think it is a timeless, elegant look that appeals to me sooo much! I am a raw newbie to stamping, and so far have only two Flourishes sets. This one heads straight to the top of my wish list! Jan Marie, your happy for you card epitomizes timeless elegance so perfectly. That ribbon is to drool over! The stamped frames coloured so beautifully, and the Spellbinders frames are just perfect! Your Passion Vine card is equally beautiful. The twining leaves frame is stunning in its simplicity. Please forgive my going on and on, but I am just so impressed! Thank you so much for sharing.

  26. Hi Jan Marie,

    Well, You did it again!!! This are such breathtaking cards!!! But my favorite is the flowers and frames set. It is simply out of this world! Flourishes is one of my favorite companies, I always, always find inspiration and knowledge through the Designer's work and tutorials. They always inspire me to do things that I had not thought about or to give a twist to an already good project! I would like to have another word in your language, but there's only one, so I will write the only one that I know, THANKS!!!!
