Sneak peeks Clear Dollar Stamps
The first one I am showing you today is the scripture 2 Corinthians 10:3-5. I pulled out some older basic grey paper from my stack for the background. I added some wonderful white silk ribbon for a beautiful bow to tie it off.
Next is a journal that I recovered using the scripture. I really liked how Yvonne used the lacey squares to extend it into a larger panel. She was my inspiration for the long panel and I love how it turned out. This is one of the journals I will be selling at the bazarre in a few weeks also.
This little tote I made is using the new set called Healing Scriptures. I used a clear box that is 5x7 and cut it in half the length way. Used the two halves to make two little totes. Glued the nessties to the frnt and back and added some cards. This is a 4x4 size card tote.
These are the little cards in the tote. Another item for the bizarre yes. I am still working on stuff to sell and hope that I do well. I love this new basic grey Tinsel paper. Very simple set of cards for the tote.

Flourishes Classic Christmas
I started making my own gift tags at Christmas a few years ago. I thought that the tag should be special and I had ideas that were better than store bought ones. I used the cardinal from the Christmas Classics set for this years tags. I love these Spellbinders Lacey circles, they are so cool. I added a little red ruffled ribbon and some silver smoke stack satin ribbon. There is a little bit of shimmer and sparkle on the branches, however they didn't come out in the photo.
Next are some quick little treats that I made. They each have a peppermint pattie in the middle. I just love the Spellbinders lacey squares also. :0) These are super simple and make quick little gifts or door prizes.
Check out the last of the sneaks from the girls today: Leslie, Dawn, Danielle, Laura, Christine, Julie
Hope you have a fabulous weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

Flourishes Newest Release!!!
Sweets of the Season
A Gift For You
Like we said before, this set is meant to coordinate with a handful of Spellbinders Nestabilities. See below? This shows just a few of the ways you can mix and match these stamps with Labels 14, Labels 15, Labels 16 as well as some of the square and circle compatible dies!
Keep in mind, if you buy all three in the New Release Bundle HERE, you get all three sets for 10% off! This offer is only good through October 22th!
A Gift for you
I made a cute new hot chocolate pkg. What I did was take a clear 2x3 box and cut it in half (so I could make 2 pkgs) then I cute out the pink cardstock using Nestabilities Labels die 14 and adhered it to the front and the back of the box only taping the box portion. I cut out the smaller die and created the tag with the A Gift For You set and stamped the sentiment. Before I put this on the box, I ran the white satin and pink ruffled ribbons around the box to sorta hide the tops of the clear box. Now I did trim off the top edge of the box a little bit, but the ribbon does cover it pretty good. Then I popped the panel up on dimensionals and voila. A different hot chocolate pkg than you see a lot of. :0) I made several of these in variety of colors the blue and cream ones look great also.

Sweets of the Season
My friends found these boxes in pkgs of 12 at the dollar store for me. They are plain white but with a little bit of paper, ribbons and goodies they can be totally cute. The bag has some peppermint drops in them. I love these candy canes don't you? This stripped candy cane ribbon goes great with the button from the Jovial Basic Grey button collection that I tied off with some twine.
I made this cute little box using the Nestabilities Lacey Squares shape. I cut them all out with the large die, then I scored about 1/8 of an inch in right on the border essentially. Folded it out and then threaded the twine through all the loops sides, top and bottom to secure it. Nothing too heavy can go in here I have some hot chocolate packages, a tissue covered box, some candies and a little note inside for the boys teacher. I have a boy and a girl gingerbread on each side along with the sentiment. Isn't that just so cute. I tied some suede ruffled chocolate ribbon along the top as well.
Some important details for you:

Time to Rejoice...
This was originally in the Rejoice set with the angel, however now we have this sentiment as a single for you. I really wanted the sentiment to stand out so I did a little white on white version for you. I have the splash of color with the ribbon and the poinsetta flower. There is some sparkle on the leaves in the Rejoice but hard to see in the photo.
Check out what the girls have to show you today:
See you back here tomorrow!

Details are Sketchy...
Now I have two creations for you with the sketch. This first one is a journal that I got for the bizarre and recovered the front. I used the Gerbera Daisies set. Coloring these daisies is always so much fun. I used the copic collections Peony and Meadow. I got some of the yummy fuchsia iridescent ribbon that just looked so good next the daisies. Added a little silver ribbon slider and a beautiful journal now.
For this card I pulled out my Apple of my eye, Life lines and Basket weave. I just love these apples with the basket weave set. This is colored using copic collections Poppy and Evergreen. This wonderful chocolate faux suede ruffle ribbon was a perfect match I thought. I did add a few jewels to the sentiment oval and called it good.
Now check out the wonderful Design Teams work using the sketch:

If you are wondering what the deal is with the new background I had to make a change. A good friend of mine was getting some error message and couldn't access my blog. So we did some changes and well hopefully this will work. Has anyone else had trouble? Let me know please, I am so techy challenged but DH is helping me with all this. :0) Okay enough babbling.... See you back here Monday for Sneak Peeks!!!! Have a great weekend!

Christmas Spirit Challenge #6
Now I have done some of my favorites already like Dove and Holly and Santa I believe. This month I pulled out the best wreath on the stamping market called Christmas wreath. This has the most detail I have seen in a wreath on paper since I don't know when. We have a warm and cozy version and a bold and bright version. Do you see how the color can really change how you see the card? Well I can atleast, lol Both wreaths are cut out and popped up on dimensionals. The yummy scallop ribbons are red and brown and are in stock over at Flourishes. I have a few more goodies lined up for this months challenge so be sure to check back. This challenge was a bit of a stretch for me but I had fun with it! Hope you do too. Check out what the other DT created for the challenge:
