MSS Sneak Peek: Comforting Florals

Hi everyone!  I have been waiting for today's post for a couple of days now.  I am very excited as today is Sneak Peek day #1 of the newest releases for Market Street Stamps!  I have the pleasure of showing off this fabulous..........Wait, did I say FABULOUS new floral set?  Well, I did.  It's called Comforting Florals.  If you follow my blog at all, you might kinda know that I love floral stamps.  :)  So when I found out I'd be showcasing this set, I was soo very happy!  Are you ready to see it? 



Sorry friends, nothing "simple" about this one.  I had the new My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Two papers: Sunshine and just had to use these fabulous patterns with this set.  I also used the August Viva la Verve sketch Week 1 for my card.  My card does use the sketch upside down.



I had fun with some machine stitching and some diecut additions to this.  I thought paper piecing the flowers and glass of water would be a nice change.  My flowers were heat embossed with black embossing powder, colored with Distress Inks, and cut out.  Check out the embossing and stitching here.



What do you think so far?  I will be back more this week with other samples using the new releases!  So stay tuned!

  • The August release stamps will be "sneaked" Monday-Wednesday at 7PM CST.
  • The full sets will be revealed on Thursday night.
