Flourishes May Sneak Peeks Day 1

April showers are bringing more than May flowers! They are bringing a whole new crop of Flourishes stamps for you to enjoy! It's day one of our sneaks and today, it's all about the men in our lives.Introducing.....



Guiding Light Graphic copy

A guiding light, a steady ship, a bottle on the shore ~ all are focal points in this brand new set called A Guiding Light from Lauren Pope. This set offers four focal images along with seven sentiments perfect to honor the men in your life - husbands, dads, grandads and more!
Our second offering is called Antique Map and we couldn't love this beautiful background any more for those masculine cards. Use it on its own to create a background or have it as a perfect companion to our A Guiding Light set.

Would you like to win this set and background stamp? Simply leave us a comment on this post and you might walk away with these two new beauties! We'll announce all the daily winners in our Winner's Circle here on the Flourishes Blog this Saturday at 12 PM CST.

Now are you still with me? Good then I have a few sneaks to show you. Had to get all the important details out of the way first. :0) This first card I used the Antique Map all on its own. I think this is a fabulous map stamp and I am so excited with this card. I can't get a picture to show you really how it looks. Darn light... But the person who got this card thought that DH had bought it and was very impressed. I used several Copic Collections to color this from Sky, Water, Fleshtones 1 and 2 and a few from Buttercup. The sentiment is from Tag Lines.

This next card is using the Antique map and A Guiding Light. I sponged some clouds behind the lighthouse. I like the sentiment stamped and popped up. This is a father's day card for one of the girls at DH work.


Now check out the fabulous creations the girls have for you. You won't want to miss any of them:Sharon
