Hi all and welcome to the final day of Flourishes’ Release Week!

On to today’s special treat! This next set is just that — a sweet treat for those you love! Want to see what I mean??


Love, Sweet Love offers a sweet way to honor your Valentine! From a cookie bouquet to a beautiful box of chocolates, to a basket of flowers complete with a darling, heart-adorned love note, this set illustrated by Marcella Hawley is sure to warm your heart. This 4 by 6″ set even comes with 3 beautifully scripted sentiments to tell your love how you feel! The Flourishes DT has been busy at work trying to sweeten up some Valentine creations with this set!

For my sample today I used the basket image from Love, Sweet Love. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock and cut and embossed with a Standard Circle Nestabilities die. The image was colored with Copic Markers (Letter: E40, E442, R08, R29, R39, Lipstick Spica pen   Tulips: Y13, Y15, Y18, YR15 , YG11, YG13, YG17   Lavendar: RV63, RV55, RV66   Basket: E42, E43, E44, E47   Ground: W3, W5, W7, W10    Sky: B0000, B000) and adhered to a Paper Doily.

A 1 3/4″ x 5″ strip of Echo Park Springtime Paper was adhered to a 5″ square of the same paper pack. The paper was cut and embossed with a Grand Circle Nestabilities die and stitched to a slightly bigger, hand-cut white cardstock circle. White Organdy Ribbon was colored with Copic Marker RV55 and tied around the vertical strip. The bow was topped with a white button, tied on with silver curling ribbon. The image layers were adhered over the layers with dimensionals.

A sentiment from the new set was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of white cardstock that had been cut and embossed with the smallest Petite Oval Nestabilities die. The embossed part was colored with Copic Marker B0000. The sentiment was adhered to the upper left of the image.

Rhinestones were added underneath the sentiment and part of a Finesse Rhinestone swirl above the bow. The layers were adhered to the card base, Kraft cardstock cut and embossed with a Grand Scalloped Circle Nestabilities die.
