Today is the third release day of Flourishes new stamps. The design team is featuring the He Is Risen set. It is a gorgeous new Easter set.

For my sample I used the main image. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on white cardstock, cut and embossed with a Petite Oval Nestabilities die and colored with Copic Markers (Lilies: Y13, Y15, Y17, YR15   Flower Stems: YR18, E37, E29   Leaves: G40, G43, G46  Small Flowers: B45, Y17   Cross: E70, E71, E74, E23). A few white lines were added to the cross with a white Faber-Castel white pastel pen.

The edges of the oval were first sponged with Antique Linen, then just a touch with Vintage Photo Distress ink. It was first layered on a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with a Scallop Oval Nestabilities die, then on piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with a Lace Doily Motifs die.

A 2″x 5″ piece of the new My Mindy’s Eye Be Happy Follow Your Heart paper was adhered to a 5″ square of the same paper pack. The edges of the papers were sanded before it was stitched to a 1/4″ bigger piece of Kraft cardstock. Seam Binding was tied around the vertical strip and topped with an October Afternoon Button before the image layers were adhered to the paper layers. Everything was adhered to a 5 1/2″ square white card base.

A sentiment from the same set was stamped to a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with a Parisian Accents and Motifs die. The embossed part was sponged and adhered to the lower right of the image.  Pearls and part of of a Pearl swirl finish off the card.
