Flourishes Friday–Focus On Angelic Love


Welcome to Flourishes Friday!

Here at Flourishes, the design team is picking up one of our older sets to give it a little attention! With the season of love upon us, we thought Angelic Love  should be in the spotlight! So, in addition to getting some fantastic ideas today from the design team on how to use this stamp set, we're having a one day only sale! Buy today and you get 15% off! Simply use the code ANGEL in the coupon code box at the time of checkout.

I decided to make a Valentine card for a friend. I stamped the image on
Classic White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with these Copic Collections:

poppyRobin's Egg CollectionWarm-Neutrals

Sunflower Collection

Then I cut it out with a Classic Heart Nestabilities die and my Grand Calibur machine and popped it up on foam dots. I’m using Crochet White lace and some sweet gingham ribbon, from which I hung the locket image. A button, some twine, and some stitching finish it off.

Be sure to check out what the rest of the team has to show you:
