Flourishes New Release Blog Hop - Day 1

***For the Scrapper's Delights Steampunk New Release Blog Hop go HERE***

Hello, my friends!

Welcome to Day 1 of the Flourishes New Release Blog Hop!
One lucky winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to the Flourishes LC Store.
Keep reading to find out how! :o)
Today we are showcasing a stamp set called "Dad You Rock"
...which you will find in the Flourishes shop HERE.
It would be an ideal set for Father's Day!

This great rock stamp offers many creative options.
I chose to heat emboss it in black. 
Then I added the sentiment stamp in black ink.

Here you can see the shine of the embossing:

To finish the card off, I added some layers, some square rhinestones, 
and layered some jute twine over a piece of ribbon.

Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - Cardstock, K & Company - Eco Modern;
Stamps: Flourishes LC - Dad You Rock;
Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black, Versamark;
Embossing Powder: Stampendous - Black;
Ribbon: Celebrate It;
Unknown: Jute Twine, Bling.
