Flourishes Sneak: Day one, Strawberries

Hey there!  Today I'm showing you a sneak peek of the newest Flourishes stamp set, Strawberries.  I absolutely love coloring with this set, it is just so fresh!  Make sure you head on over to the Flourishes Newsletter, for a one day only blog candy for your chance to win this set. I used Flourishes new Classic White card stock on both of my cards, its just perfect for coloring with Copic markers.
"hello"
For this circle card, I scored the card as usual, then got a scalloped circle Spellbinders nestabilitie which I then cut and embossed.  I had the image already colored (used Copic markers), so I grabbed another circle die that would nest in the scalloped card base. To finish off the card I tied a bow using some twill and attached a button to the center.

"you're so sweet"
For this card, I just wanted a clean and crisp summer card that would show off the basket.  Anytime you use black as a layer or as and embellishment it will make your project pop, so I layered the white circular panel onto black card stock..  To add some contrast I added some yellow gingham ribbon and tied a bow.  After I stamped the sentiment, it seemed a little lonely so, I took some Kaiser red pearls and created a heart to go around it.


Be sure to take a little blog hop to visit the rest of the designers showing off this set!

BrilLianT, big WOW! The coloring seems to make the flora and Berries just jump off the card, Like one could pick them Today. Thanks for explaining your thought process in choosing design elements. It really is brilLianT work!
