Flourishes Friday - Country Charm

FYI: Because of issues with Blogger and the inability to leave comments, You NOW have until Sunday, May 15th  at 3PM CST to comment and participate in the week’s challenges. Remember, when you take part in our challenges, you could just win THE ENTIRE FLOURISHES RELEASE!




We don’t need to tell you that tags and labels are two of the trendiest items to hit the card making market in a long time! And, to help you add style and pizzazz to your creations, Flourishes has teamed up with Spellbinders Paper Arts to make sure you have the perfect set of stamps to match a darling set of tag style dies. Wonderfully whimsical and reminiscent of Grandma’s calico prints, Flourishes  “charming” set offers three labels that coordinate perfectly with Spellbinders Grommet Tags (S4-322). Designed by Becky Fleck, you'll also find 6 beautiful sentiments and 4 accent stamps to dress up your labels! Pair that with Flourishes Country Charm Borders and you have the perfect set to make darling note cards in minutes. Flourishes coordinating Country Charm Borders set features five border strips that match the labels set to a tee. What fun!
 
I decided to use Country Charm Borders to dress up some elements to go behind my Country Tag element, which was cut out with Labels Fourteen Nestabilities dies and my Grand Calibur machine. All of the patterned paper and embellishments are from the Gabrielle 1,2,3 Create Kit. My base card is Classic Ivory card stock.


The focal image was cut out with a Grommet Tag and stamped with several images from Country Charm Labels to coordinate with the Labels Seventeen layer.

Because of this special match with Spellbinders Grommet Tags, both design teams are joining forces for a fun-filled show and tell blog hop:
