New Releases!!

It’s release day at Flourishes and that means fun, fun, fun!! This month’s releases celebrate summer in all its glory!! We have three new stamp sets to help keep those summertime blues away..

First is Summer on the Patio, designed for us by Marcy Hawley. This large set (about 8 x 6) is jam packed with stamps and has so much to offer! You can use it to create a patio scene with a variety of options for the table top. Choose lemonade or wine, or how about a pretty vase of flowers? How about a chandelier to add a touch of elegance? There’s also a large pitcher of flowers that is a perfect stand alone image. This card by Leslie Miller in classic pink and black just makes you want to sit back and enjoy that glass of lemonade!

Next is Summer Botanicals, also designed by Marcy. This 4 x 6 set contains images that can be used as silhouettes or by coloring directly on the image. Try using the new Flower Soft products, available at the store, to add a little dimension and texture to these images. This card by Julie Koerber uses the coneflower image from the set to make a bright and cheery card.

Finally, is Summer Blossoms. This 4 x 6 set contains not only pretty floral images and buds, but some wonderful stems that can be used with the florals, by themselves or combined to make patterned background. This card by Susan Roberts uses the main flower image and one of the swirl stamps from this set and combines it with the chandelier from the Summer on the Patio set for a real eye popping card!

We hope you like what you see here!! Be sure the visit our design teams blog (links on the right) to see more great cards.

The new sets are awesome! The cards done by the design team are wonderful. I would love to know where Susan Roberts got the scrollwork for the corners of her card. It's beautiful, and the whole thing looks so elegant. Great job, girls.
