Release Day!

It’s release day at Flourishes and we have special news for you – the New Release Bundle!!
During the first week of a release we will be offering a special to all our customers. If you purchase all three sets – “the new release bundle” – you will get them at a 10% discount! So many of our customers purchase all the new releases, so we thought we’d make it that much easier and provide them to you during the first week at this special price. Offer ends September 17. To buy the bundle click here!

Next, let us sing the praises of our design team. Every week they come up with beautiful ideas on how to use Flourishes stamps. Their blogs are so informative and helpful and provide such a great service to all stampers. We are asking for your help in supporting their blogs.

We know that many of you are inspired by their blogs and make a purchase based on what you see. We ask that when you make a purchase, please type in the first name and last initial of the design team member whose work prompted the purchase. We will provide a bonus to the designer based on this. Just type the name (as listed below) in the promotion code at checkout and we’ll take care of the rest!

    Now for the new releases!!

    First up is a large set called Birds and Vine, approximately 8 x 6. This set of nine stamps was created by Marcella Hawley exclusively for Flourishes and what a beauty it is. The large floral vine image is about 5.5 x 4.25 so it can be used either as a background or pair it up with the bird silhouettes for the focal point! We love how Marcella also incorporated a smaller version, complete with birds as well as sentiments that complement the images. Now, if you don’t have an acrylic block for this large image, Flourishes sells an individual 6 x 5 block or a set that contains the 6 x 5 block and other smaller blocks. This card by Susan Roberts shows the beauty and delicate nature of a few of the stamps in this set!

Next up is another set from Marcella, called Forest of Trees and if you are looking for a great tree set for all seasons, this is it! This set of seven stamps, approximately 4 x 6, will have you stamping all year long! All seasons are covered here! This card by Julie Koerber uses a fall color scheme - what a beauty! Using different colors and you can celebrate spring, summer and winter as well!

Rounding out this month’s release is Mixed Greetings. The concept and initial sketches were done by our own design team member Leslie Miller and then finalized by Diane Roche. Leslie had this great idea of mixing and matching bowls, contents and greetings to provide a stamper with greater versatility. This is the latest set in a series we call Simply/Sophisticated. Use this set to make quick and easy cards, or go all out with designer paper and embellishments when you need that sophisticated look! This card by Leslie Miller pairs up the fruit image and basket image with one of the three sentiments in the set. Incorporating designer paper, ribbons and pearls gives this card that added touch. Now take a look at this same fruit image, but with a different basket and a simpler design. Just two colors for the card and white embossing for the main image - no coloring! The only embellishment is a simple white satin ribbon. You can add a greeting or leave the front blank and use either card with a fruit gift basket, or with a basket of home grown treats from your garden. Go simple or sophisticated!

Thanks for stopping by and remember you can get all three sets for 10% off when you purchase the New Release Bundle.
