The Craft's Meow June Release Preview Day 4: Fancy Flourishes

The Craft's Meow

Welcome to another day of our June releases at The Craft's Meow!  Today we're featuring a Nina B set called Fancy Flourishes and I know you're going to love this one!  It includes the gorgeous flourish I'll show you in a second, plus some smaller motifs in the same style, and two sentiments.  This set will be our free set this month with a $50.00 purchase.  Here's my first card:

TCM Fancy Flourishes June release

Didn't I tell you you'd love this flourish?  Here I let it take center stage, stamping it on some ivory cardstock, along with one of the sentiments, and then just added a store-bought rose and colored in the letters.  I thought this My Mind's Eye paper was the perfect background, as it has swirls and flourishes in a much more subtle manner.

For my second card, I stamped the same flourish twice on white cardstock, to be more in the background for this vellum flower I made, using the last of some thick beautiful pink vellum and Spellbinder's Rose Creations dies.  I wanted an equally flourished sentiment, so I chose this one from our Lark Additions set, sprinkled some pearls, and added it to a pink card base.  Wouldn't this design work nicely for a wedding card, using the bride's wedding colors? (Edited to add:) I'd also like to enter this card into the Moxie Fab World's Birthday Card Challenge, since this was created within a month of the challenge.  

Please visit The Craft's Meow blog to see what my team-mates did with this lovely stamp set.  Leave a comment there by 8:00 PM PST tonight for a chance to win it!  Lisa will be giving away a set to one lucky commenter at The Craft's Meow Blog!  And please come back again tomorrow for our traditional blog hop featuring all of our 4 new sets this month (with a chance to win them ALL)!
