Cup of thanks

Welcome to Novembers Sneak Peeks at Flourishes! We’re really excited to show off this month’s sets to you, because we know they’ll be ones you’ll want to use over and over again. Each of them convey a real sense of warmth and will be perfect for any occasion you have with friends and family. Today’s set is one we’ve been anticipating with great excitement because we think it’s fabulous! Introducing….
GrabacupGraphic
Grab a cup and enjoy with this sweet-as-can-be coffee and tea inspired set. Use it to send warm thoughts across the miles or to invite a dear friend to share some time over hot drinks. This set, illustrated by Marcella Hawley measures 4" by 6" and offers three main images, four accent images and six mix and match sentiments! It celebrates everything coffee and tea should be!
 My creation today is rather straight forward and easy peasy. I stamped the cup and daisy image from Grab A Cup onto Classic White card stock using Memento Tuxedo black ink.
Colored with Copic Collections:





I have to say that the flowers are a lot more of a light pink in real life yet every photo they kept coming up brown like the cup?? So odd but its what it is. Added a bit of white lace trim under my Color Made Easy Sunflower panel and a few scatters jewels. Voila!

And look at what we’re also offering this month with this set...
