A Gift For You! Flourishes NEW Release Blog Hop



Greetings, friends! You're going to love today's brand new stamp release from Flourishes. It's the perfect set to use to add a touch of class and elegance to your Christmas gift packaging!

Today, Flourishes is sneak peaking a brand new set called A Gift for You, and the Spellbinders(TM) design team is joining in the fun!



This set was designed not only to coordinate with some of Flourishes best-selling Christmas stamp sets, but with several Spellbinders die templates!

A Gift For You - drawn by the ever-so-talented Marcella Hawley - offers eight different tag styles and eight different mini sentiments to fit inside! I used just a few of the stamps in the set for my tags. To make sure your tags come out with a regal style and design, this set coordinates with Spellbinders Labels Fourteen, Labels Fifteen, Labels Sixteen, as well as some of the new circular and square shaped designs like Lacey, Eyelet and Beaded Circles and Lacey or Eyelet Squares! The customizable options are endless.


I decided to use muted colors that can either coordinate with 'manly' packages, or complement foil papers such as gold, red or green. Here I used Spellbinders new Labels Fourteen and Labels Seventeen with a couple of the stamps from the set (you can click on the photo to enlarge it). See how just a little bit of bling brings the tag up to the next level? I added a little Liquid Pearls, Stickles and of course, Copic Markers. Imagine using these same stamps with silver ink on black, blue or red cardstock. How elegant that would be!

These stamps also coordinate with other Spellbinders die templates that you have on your list. Here they are cut and embossed with Labels Ten and Labels Seven. Think of the possibilities.....use the die templates to stencil the edges, or the entire interior with a coordinating color!

Supplies:
Stamps: Flourishes (A Gift For You)
Die Templates: Spellbinders (Labels Seven, Ten, Fourteen and Seventeen)
Paper: WorldWin Cardstock (Malt), Graphic 45 (A Proper Gentleman)
Ink: Memento (Rich Cocoa, Cottage Ivy), CTMH (Vineyard Berry)
