A Guiding Light

April showers are bringing more than May flowers! They are bringing a whole new crop of Flourishes stamps for you to enjoy! It's day one of our sneaks and today, it's all about the men in our lives.

Introducing. ....

Flourishes A Guiding Light


A guiding light, a steady ship, a bottle on the shore ~ all are focal 
points in this brand new set called A Guiding Light from Lauren Pope. 

This set offers four focal images along with seven sentiments perfect to
honor the men in your life - husbands,dads, grandads and more! 
Our second offering is called Antique Map  
and we couldn't love this beautiful background any more for those 
masculine cards. Use it on its own to create a background or 
have it as a perfect companion to our 
A Guiding Light set.

I stamped my main image from A Guiding Light onto Flourishes Classic
White paper and colored with
copics. I used the Spellbinder's Small Labels that are on sale right now in
the Flourishes store. I stamped my map from the Antique Map set
onto my back panel.. these sets compliment each other so well.

Would you like to win this set and background stamp? Simply leave us a
comment over at the Flourishes Blog and you might walk away with
these two new beauties! We'll announce
