Introducing Summer Blossoms

Welcome to the very first day of Flourishes Sneak Peeks for JUNE! It's exciting because the sets being revealed this week aren't just unique for June -- they are part of an entire collection of stamp sets that will be released over the next year! It's called the Blossom Collection and each set released under this name will be designed to coordinate with the other pieces for all types of occassions! Use one set on it's own or slowly add to the collection -- that's the beauty of it!
Today's set is the first part of this collection and features beautiful blooms perfect for summer!

Part of The Blossoms Collection, this beautiful array of summer blossoms illustrated by Marcella Hawley features a bouquet, corner stamps, and pieces to create your own borders or frames. Add in a trio of all occasion sentiments and you have the perfect set to create cards for every day correspondence. Set measures 4 by 6" and is the perfect companion to sister sets Happily Ever After SS199 and Letters in Blossom SS198. If you like what you see, this set is available for pre-order now, just click HERE!

My creation using Summer Blossoms is warm and cozy today. The fancy trim along the bottom is using Spellbinders Decorative Inserts Three. This is one of my new favorite things to put on the bottom of my cards lately. What is really funny as it sat on my desk for several months as I wasn't sure how to use it properly. GASP! I know funny, however I do know how to use it very well now as its on most of my creations. hee hee Added a little bit of the lace and ribbon which I tied off with a ribbon bow. The designer paper in the back isn't showing as much as I wanted, this is from the paper pack Happy Travels from Glitz. Very romantic feeling paper pack I would have to say. I then finished off the sides with some flourished jewels. Be sure to check out the creations from the Design Team today:
