Just in case you missed it! ;-)

Hi all and Happy Wednesday. Julie here! Recently, Flourishes pulled the lid off it's February release and one of the stamps-- Tea Rose Background -- is a brand new background that is just too elegant and feminine.

Because of it's unusual shape, I recently did a tutorial on my blog on how to use it. I thought we'd showcase that "how to" here... just in case you missed it! First things first, here's a peek at what the stamp looks like on the block. See the criss cross pattern?

After inking it up with black ink, this is how it stamps....

The fun thing is, once you line the tea rose background up, you get a pattern that could repeat from here to eternity!
And, after lining it up and stamping, then the fun begins with coloring and creating! Here's a peek at my finished card.I also used elements from the new Let's have Tea set! If you'd like to know more about the card mechanics, you can click HERE to see.

Remember, Flourishes New Release Bundle featuring all four stamp sets is on special for one more day only! This bundle combines all four sets into one package price which is 10% less than if you were to buy each set individually! Great deal!
Thanks for stopping by! We'll see you back here soon!

Julie -

What a great stamp. I see a lot of possibilities for it. I see that by using a portion of the stamp we could create crosses for perhaps use on Easter cards?! And I love the way your card came out, it really does make a beautiful background.
