Here is a card using another one of the three sets released this week by Flourishes.  It is called “Summer Blossoms”.


I stamped the flowers with SU! Classic Rose Red Ink on Watercolor paper.  Then, with my aqua painter, I used my Yoyo Yellow reinker and touched it down on the flower.  The effect was a blend of colors that I thought was so pretty.  I cut out the flowers and adhered them to the card front.

Here is the complete “Summer Blossoms” set.  I love the graceful nature of the stems.



And yes… I stamped in the chandelier from “Summer on the Patio”.  I just couldn’t help myself!  The candles are colored in with a red glaze pen.  The bobbles and flames are glittered with a Sakura “Clear Star” pen.

If you want to see some more cards made with this week’s releases from Flourishes, be sure to visit Barb, Faith, Julie, Leslie and Linda’s blogs.

My son, daughter-in-law and (almost 4 year old) twin granddaughters are flying in tomorrow and staying for the week.  I’m so excited to see them and have some grandma time.  The girls have been taking swimming lessons and are all ready to play at our lakehouse, swim in the lake and go for some boat rides.  We may even get them to sit on the innertube with their dad and get pulled around!  lol  Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
