Let the sneaks begin!

Many of you have talked in one way or another about wanting to see the signs of spring sprout! We do too at Flourishes! So much so, we had one of our talented artists, Marcella Hawley draw up some flowers that are sure to deliver some spring beauty in your card making!

Introducing.....


These beautiful climbing flowers are known for their lengthy blooms, intense shades of red, pink, blue and lavender and come with a sweet and fragrant scent. With those kinds of qualities, who wouldn't love a hand picked bouquet? The next best thing is to create a bouquet yourself!

When Marcella draws her floral creations, we often see the final stamp sets, but rarely do we get a glimpse into what she was thinking when she sat down to create. Recently she emailed me a photo after an afternoon of "play time" and I have to say, I was blown away. Gorgeous doesn't even begin to cover it!

Isn't it amazing to see what an artist can do with a little ink and watercolor paint? Truly stunning in every sense of the word.

Our senior design team has been busy whipping up stunning creations of their own using this set!! You're going to want to visit each and every one of them! And, don't forget, this set along with two others will be released this Friday night -- March 13th-- at the tail end of our Release Party set for 8 to 10 central in the Flourishes Forum on Splitcoast. We hope to "see" you there!

Before you go blog hopping.... Do you want to win this set? Be sure to leave a comment on this post telling us what flower Flourishes does not have on polymer that you would love to see in a stamp set! We'd love to know!

See you back here tomorrow for DAY 2 of our sneak peeks! Want a hint? Tomorrow's set promises to be a "go to" when you need to add an elegant flair to your cards!

Until then!

Thanks
Elaine Allen

Cheri Howard said...

Oooooh! I love those sweet peas! As for flowers you don't have sets for - there are too many to name! But maybe start with tulips? or Forget-me-nots? or snapdragons? or....oh I better quit now! ;o)

Emilia said...

I am addicted to Marcella's designs, she makes me feel like if I am an artist!!!!! I love the new stamps... wow!!!

Cook22 said...

How beautiful is that! They are one of my favourite flowers, just planted some seeds last week. That, at least, doesn't stretch my colouring skills.
A lot of my favourite flowers are in your sets already, like magnolia, lavender, poppies. But I don't think you have the Escholzia (California Poppy), and I just love freesias, too. I know you already have some tulips, but more ornate ones. I like the simple plain shaped ones. Are the little ones Parrot heads?

Annelies said...

WOW, that picture is amazing! I love the new stamps!
And for the question of the missing flower, I haven't found a set yet on your website with sunflowers, my favorite flowers!

deanera said...

greetings and hugs brigitta

madeleine said...

Beautiful set, can't wait to place my order. It reminds me of when I used to grow sweet peas and their wonderful scent, In a condo you don't have those luxuries to plant

Lois said...

Let me say this out loud, Marcy is my very favorite stamp designer. The photo of her "sketch" is just gorgeous. Boy, would I LOVE to win this set. Thanks for the opportunity.

Diane said...

Beautiful~Gorgeous! You should NEVER ask a gardener what she wants...LOL...I would love to see pansies, hydrangea, flowering almond bush and lilacs! Guess I wishing for Spring! I want to oder the daffodil Spring set, but will wait for this new release, as I might have to add it tomy order!

Roxy said...

Georgous!!!!!!!!The mind is whirling already with possibilities on how to use this stamp. I'm a sucker for sunflowers.

Dru said...

This is gorgeous - a definite must-have. Sweet Peas are among my very favorites. My all time favorite however are pansies and violas - they have the sweetest faces and present so many many color variations.

Janet said...

The Rubber Maid said...

I love this image, it is absolutely beautiful. I love all the spring and summer flowers but I really love Dianthus and High bred Impatients for my borders. I am a flower freak though and I do just love them all. Pat

Barbara said...

Jen said...

The sweet peas are gorgeous! I'd love to see what Flourish would do with a sunflower...=)

naneruth said...

That is so pretty! I would love to own that set that is for sure. Plain shaped tulips are always nice to have on hand.

terri said...

They are beautiful as are most of your sets and I will be buying this one.

denise g. said...

Marcella's sweet peas look REAL and I love that! Seeing this on Julie K's blog made me think of my Grandma. I like anything old fashioned that says "country garden" like snap dragons and moss roses and delphinium. Something a chubby little hand is going to pick and race into the house clutching.

Gabriela (Gabi With An Eye) said...

The Seet Pea is my all time favorite flower and Marcella is one of my favorite designer and illustrators. It's only fitting that she would develop this marvelous stamp. If I inhale deeply, I'm sure I can savor this Sweet Pea's sweet aroma. Heck, I even named my dog "Sweet Pea". As far as responding to your contest question - I would love to see a Gerbera Daisy in polymer.

Kelly said...

Wow, LOVE these sweet peas! I'd love to see pansies done like this!

quiltcat said...

Wow, that's gorgeous! Marcella Hawley is my favorite designer, hands down. I'd really like to see violets and pansies in a future set.

Beth R. said...

boynecitygrl said...

Ohhhhhhh my gosh. This is a gorgeous stamp. wow wow wow

sandyh50 said...

Oh My these sweet peas cards are gorgeous! Pansies would be a neat flower to have!

Barb (GrandmaUpNorth) said...

Love ALL the examples I've seen with this set. Great coloring. I would love to see a columbine stamp.

Nancy said...

Oh my, can't wait to get hold of this one! Thanks for the chance to win.
You already have a lily (my favorite flower), but would love to see pansies or petunias. :)

Jenn Ashley said...

I love the new peeks. I'm a pansies girl myself. They come in sooo many colors now. Thanks for the hope of spring!! Here in New England it's still winter and gray. Lillies are a close second.

Kerry said...

The sweet peas are stunning! I definitely need to add these to my collection.

There are lots of flowers that I think would be awesome as stamps. Some of my favorites are bachelor buttons and portulacas (moss rose). I think the portulacas would be really fun to color since they come in all sorts of wonderful combinations.

Tracey said...

WOW!! Gorgeous! As for what to suggest...how about some sunflowers!

athleticsecretary said...

This card and all the DT's cards are wonderful. I know this is a MUST HAVE set! Thanks for this opportunity!!

Casie said...

I love the new set!! Gorgeous!

How about adding a pansy or violet set?

WOW, WOW, WOW!!! I love these sneak peeks! I can't wait to see the whole set!!!
I would love to see a Southern Magnolia, or a Dogwood...I just love the blossoms those produce! :D

Carolyn said...

Oh my gosh...sweet peas. When I was a youngster I picked sweet peas for a grower selling to the flower market.

I love this set!!

dpkennedy said...

All of the Flourishes flowers are gorgeous...but these, oh, these Sweet Peas have got to be my favorite! That is some amazing watercoloring! I LOVE it!

Sweet peas alway remind me of my mother. She didn't "do" flowers except Sweet Peas. I grow them for my mother.

Denim said...

Oh my... the new set is just stunning! And isn't 'sweat pea' just the greatest flower name?? Mark me down as wanting one. I would love to have some gladioli to work with. They come in so many wonderful colors, I can only imagine what your artists would do with them! {crossing fingers!}

denimo@sbcglobal.net

Mandy said...

So gorgeous....

I would love to see my favorite flower the Dahlia. They are so gorgeous and I think they would be fun to color.

Anna Banana said...

Theresa said...

Wow! This is gorgeous. Looks like a "must have" set.

Carolyn said...

I forgot to tell you that I would like to see a peony in a stamp set. It is a very popular flower used in oriental art.

Jessica said...

Well Marcella must have been reading my mind because I've been searching for sweet pea flower stamps lately! I will definitely be getting this set. I'd love to see hydrangeas and morning glories, and regular or Japanese Iris. Thanks for the chance to win! And I love the original watercolor, wow! What inspiration.

Nannieflash said...

Oh I love these new stamps one of my most favourite flowers, I would love to win them if I dont I will definately be back to buy them. I think it would be nice to see pansies or even carnations.

Anonymous said...

Marcy, pack your bags, include cases and cases of s.p. set, then, establish a booth at Sweet Pea Festival, Bozeman, Montana! Your work is so out there! Certainly you would go home lacking product but heavy with greenbacks! Smell the sweet peas' aroma while taking in all that lovely color.
Flower suggestions include the Bitterroot, Montana State Flower, which looks a bit daisy like and is a low groundcover in various colors of whites, and pinks in the wild. It is a freedom lover!!just like Montanans. Lily of the Valley is a great inchie and background flower for novice and experienced crafters. L.V., May's birth flower enhance cards or scrap pages for many occasions.

Kaye W. said...

These flowers are just beautiful! I also love peonies!

Kelly said...

What a gorgeous new set! I am going to go broke buying all of these botanicals! As for new flowers- sunflowers or apple blossoms (more of a tree...LOL)Thanks for showing this set!

JMK said...

I've always been more of a wild flower kind of person and sweet peas are something I remember from my younger years. It's amazing how different colors and styles can bring out different aspects of the stamps. Love it.

Paula said...

The pansies are just gor-jus. I remember growing up with pansies in my mothers garden. Hummmm.....maybe I should plant some for me. The always smelled so sweet.

Cindy said...

Oh I must have those sweet peas! Gorgeous! I would love to see some sunflowers and tulips.eclanca

Absolutely gorgeous!!!! My grandmother always had sweet peas and these remind me of her. I would love to see pansies in a stamp.

Karen said...

Oh my! So beautiful! I love sweetpeas. I used to pick them as a girl since they grew in a field near our home. Sweet memories!

Kris Turner said...

Hi! These sweet peas are absolutely gorgeous! I love the Victorian look of them. To add to them, snapdragons would be wonderful! Tiger or oriental lillies would be great, too, as would Tanzanias (more for Fall) and Delphiniums or foxglove. Can you tell I love Victorian gardens? Thanks! Kris, Wadsworth, OH

Damjana Ž. said...

This is just beautiful! I'd love to see hydrangeas!

Evelyn S. said...

I cannot believe the beauty of these sweet peas! And I've just realized that my MUST BUYS at Flourishes have reached three! Are there peonies in Flourishes' sets?

Linda said...

Even though I swore I would not buy any more flowers stamps because I already own 2000 flowers stamps...maybe I could have just one more...2001 is a nice number

gina f. said...

Pretty! I like it for my niece's bridal shower inv. cards. I'll like to see some bluebonnnets,thanks....Gina

Jill Haddad said...

Oh! These sweet peas are just gorgeous! I would definitely LOVE to win the set - but if not will be ordering it!

I would love to see your artists create a set with Hollyhocks. They are such an oldfashioned flower and bring back wonderful memories of my grandmother's garden.

KanataNewf said...

Oh my. Beautiful. I would love to see my home province of Newfoundland Canada's provincial flower on a stamp - the pitcher plant. It is such an unusual plant - carnivorous and all.

Denise B. said...

While those sweet peas are gorgeous, I'm missing my favorite plant, the hydrangea!!!!! Next in line would be an African violet, carnations, and gladiolas. Please, please give us the ever-lovely and regal hydrangea.

K said...

I've been trying like a madwoman to draw a decent calla for the past hour. Giving up, I am. So - callas would be great :)
Bye, Kitty

Anonymous said...

my fav in my garden is phlox comes in many colors and can be short or tall ....love your stamps...D

Janice said...

This is exactly the kind of images I want to find when I shop for stamp sets. This is beautifully done. Keep them coming and I'll keep buying.

All the sneek peeks were wonderful! This set is beautiful. I would love seeing pansies, geraniums or old fashioned hollyhocks. I'm off to check out under the sofa cushions for some extra cash- LOL!

Ravengirl said...

I love sweet peas! In fact, that is what we call my daughter. I discovered a flower called Frangipani when I was in the South Pacific over nine years ago. They are very pretty, delicate and sooo fragrant! I think this flower would fit nicely into a tropical flower set!!!

broni (waterchild12) said...

The sweet peas are amazing!! I would love to see some orchids. Think of the possibilities!

leenda said...

WOW! Marcella is one amazing artist! I hate it when ladies do this but please pick me!! LOL

Deborah March said...

Oh MY! I've only just discovered "Flourishes," and now I'm sorry I already submitted an order! Although I LOVE all I've ordered, I wish I'd waited till your new stamps were released. These sweet peas are a MUST HAVE for sure! I grow perennial sweet peas at my summer place, and LOVE their intoxicating scent. Would love to see a box of geraniums on your to-do-list. ;)

Cheryl said...

I love the new sweet pea stamps. Gorgeous colorings. Can't wait to see the other sets. Thanks for the opportunity to win this set.

One word....beautiful!

Janet Z said...

Those sweet peas are gorgeous! Would love to have that drawing! How about having some velvety pansies?

Secret said...

This is one stunning stamp. Beautiful. I will have to say pansy's would be a great flower to feature..they were my grandma's favourite.

Nancy C. said...

These are just beautiful - my favorite of course it pansies - any set with pansies would be great!

walshes5 said...

So pretty! Hmm, do you have lilacs already? Love those. And daffodils are my favorite "cheer-me-up" flower.

This is so beautiful....truly one of the best yet. This is a 'must have' set. One of my favorite flowers is the Southern Magnolia....such an elegant fragrant flowers.

Sweet peas have a warm and homely cottage feel that you have captuted so well...would love to have this set....thank you for the opportunity!!! Personally I would love to see hydrangea's, followed by geraniums and them daisy's... but I would love to see hydrangea's done as only Flourishes can!!

Lovely Linda

creativearts said...

Beautiful! Amazing talent. How about daisies for a future set of flowers? Pink, yellow, white, cream, lavender, etc.

Laurie said...

The Sweet Peas are so great! I fell in love with Cindy's card. I'd like to see a set with daisies & carnations would be fun.

PeggyF(lefsegirl) said...

OH YES, I would love to win this set! It is to DIE FOR!! For a flower that I would love to see in a stamp would be Gladiolus, Mums, or Columbines.

Amanda said...

So pretty! Love all of the sneak peeks. I'd love to see tulips, sunflowers, and orchids.

Chris said...

i would love a sunflower set for fall!

Anonymous said...

These sweet peas are amazing!!! Could you do something similar with hydrangeas, please? I would also like to see a set with mixed flowers-like tulips, roses & lilies; also a wild flower mix.

Thanks,
Nancy

Dee said...

Absolutely BEAUTIFUL! I love sweet peas! This will be in my collection soon! How about a stargazer lily as a new addition to your stamps? Thanks for the chance to win.

Rosie said...

I would love to see a sunflower stamp set...they are such happy flowers or perhaps pansies... they would be so much fun to color!
The sweet peas are absolutely gorgeous!So Yes... send them to me!

cathygalloway89 said...

Wow! That stamp is gorgeous! I would love to see a daisy or black eyed susan done up as a stamp.

Christine said...

The sweet pea stamp is fabulous but I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to do it justice like the designer did. I looked at your stamps (and I'm going to have to go back and order something soon - I just can't decide) but what I would like to see some spring bulb flowers; i.e., tulips daffodils, irises, crocus, hyacynth. I think they would be beautiful in watercolor like the poppies.

Happylittlestamper said...

Wow, Marcy Just stunning.
Flowers I would love to see, Lillies. I love all Lillies including Tiger Lily, water lillies,Stargazer Lillies. and Calla Lily. These flowers could be so versatile, anything from easter, birthday and sympathy cards.
Hugs to you all, Michelle N

Julie- justwritedesigns said...

Those sweet peas are gorgeous! As far as what flowers I would like to see, I have a few favorites: hibiscus, geranium and hydrangea. I would love to see these in a style like the sweet peas.

Anonymous said...

The sweet peas are just beautiful! Love the samples I've seen! I love all flowers and pansies are such a happy flower! Maybe you could try some of them! Also, I'm from Alaska and Forget-Me-Nots are our state flower, so they'd be great, too! Sue (suen)

Susan said...

WOW! That is just absolutely breath takingly beautiful!! I love all of the flowers sets you have so far. Two flower sets I'd love to see are Violets and Gerber Daisies.

TN Granny said...

I love love these Sweet Peas and the watercoloring is amazing.

I would love to see Sunflowers or Lilacs I do adore lilacs.

Etha said...

oh these are SO beautiful!!
I'm not sure what you don't have, :) I always love to see more animals like dogs, farm animals etc.
Was that the question?? Now I'm confused looking at the other comments LOL...

DebbyG said...

I really enjoy all your flower sets, but this one really stands out. It's beautiful.

Holly said...

I so need the sign of spring, it is so cold here I'm starting to think spring will never come. As mentioned by some others I love pansies, especially if they are yellow and purple. Beautiful card thanks for the inpiration for spring maybe it will be here soon.

Rosemary D said...

Oh Wow! those sweetpeas are beautiful! Flourishes seems to have the most beautiful flowers! I can only think of violets or panseys to add to the collection.

auntie lisa said...

I love the new sweet peas in this set. They remind of my grandma, she always grew them in her gardens each summer. Can't wait for these. Lisa

Lois said...

Well, when I posted this morning, I forgot to say what flower I would like to see. Duh! One of my favorite flowers is the pansy. It always reminds me of my grandmother, who grew lots and lots of pansies.

Robbin said...

The sweet peas are beautiful!!! I think I'm going to have to get this one!! A flower that I love but haven't seen a stamp for would be "Foxglove".

Book Bling said...

I love this stamp. It is so pretty and different. I really like Lily of the Valley. Thanks for sharing.

ny2tx_patti said...

The sweet peas are gorgeous! My favorite flowers are anemones. I would love to see a set with them.

Cindy said...

Well you just announced a set with my favorite flower. I grow sweet peas every year. I would love to see what your artists can do with hydrangeas. That's my other favorite flower. Your artists create floral images that are so realistic, unlike anyone else's floral images.

inkedx2 said...

I would love to see a Dahlia. Oh the possibilities for layering!!!!!!

Robbie

Donna said...

I love the new sweetpea stamp set. For a new flower set, what about one with violas, Johnny-jump-ups and pansies.

Chrissie said...

My very favorite flower they look so real you can almost smell them YUMMY

JenR said...

oh my... gorgeous!! I am so getting this set, one way or another. :o) I would love to see what magic you could do with a Calla lily, my favorite lily!

Teresa said...

Those sweet peas are so real I can almost smell them. I would love to see a set that would include little violets and pansies.

Marsha said...

I love these Sweet Peas. They are wonderful.
There are so many kinds of dahlias - maybe a variety of those might be nice.

larue said...

Oh how truly gorgeous. I would love to see a set with pansies, or roses.

GiGi said...

I'm new at blogging. You have the most beautiful floral stamps one the market. The sweetpeas were great. Maybe you could do a viburnum.

Renee V. said...

I'm just in awe...
What a gorgeous stamp and I love how it's been showcased. Simply gorgeous!

Anjou Krelovich said...

Oh my. I definitely need these sweetpeas. The set is just perfect. I'd love to see something with either Lilacs or cherry blossoms -- they just spell spring to me!

cindy said...

This is a set I cannot do without. Again a winner!

Sheri said...

Lilacs are my very favorite flower, but gerber daisys would be absolutely beautiful to color. I love the sweet peas you have done and the card is absolutely stunning

Marcy, this set is just beautiful! I love the "ruffley" look of all the small blooms...just beautiful. My favorite flower, and one I'd love to see in a stamp is the Angel Trumpet. I have a wonderful one in my back yard...just georgeous. Love this set!

janet levasseur said...

This card is Beautiful!!!!! I just love the sweet peas. My second favorite flower. The first is peonies!

This set is phenomenal and I hope I win it! I love the daffodil and poppy sets...

Since I love doing floral watercolors I'm always looking for more! How 'bout Gerber daisies or hydrangea? I'm not sure that I've seen those yet.

Nancy Park said...

These sweetpeas are just beautiful, I can not wait till they are available. I would love to see some forget-me-nots or some wild flowers that are large enough to be watercolored.

What a beautiful card! Sweet peas are one of my favorite flowers! My other favorite is hydrangeas....they come in such wonderful colors!

The new sweet peas are so pretty and feminine! My flower choice would be 'forget-me-nots." I was born and raised in Alaska and, if memory serves me, this is their state flower.Whether it is or not I love this delicate little bloom and have been looking for a large sized one for quite a while; I love the artistic style of the sweet pease and think forget-me-nots would be lovely! Thank you!

Wow! Is Marcella an artist or what? That is gorgeous! I would love to have 1/10 of that talent! Well, I would love to see gardenias and stephanotis in polymer. I carried these along with roses (which you already have) in my bridal bouquet and they were so pretty and smelled heavenly! My mom carried 2 dozen gardenias in her bouquet in 1949. I wanted the same bouquet, but it would have cost $250 (in 1992)! It wasn't in my budget! Love your stamps...keep them coming!

Wow - Sweet Peas - they were my mother's favorite flower. We tried to find them for her funeral but they couldn't find them. I want this set!!! I can add it to my book about my mom! Hope I win!

Sunflowers and Gerbera Daisies (but not together - two different sets). I would LOVE to see what Marcella would do with those two. After that, tulips - a whole set of them, not the one fancy one that is in the thank you set.

Snap dragon and hollycocks would be may faves to see as stamps.
You are making me anxious for spring.

thanks so much for the chance at a prize.

I would love to see some violets. They are just one of my favorites and hard to find.

These are exquisite (as are all your floral stamps!) My favorite fall flowers are mums, and I would love to see mum images of the same caliber as these! Now I'm off to order the peony set -- absolutely my favorite!!

Gorgeous! I love these flowers! What flower is missing - good heavens I am not sure. Hey, it is still winter here and I can't remember all our spring flowers my husband grows. Thanks so much for sharing.

The Sweetpeas are BEAUTIFUL. I would love to win these because my Granddaughter's nickname is Sweetpea - it has been since the day she was born. Hope I win!

Your designers are so talented. I am jealous of how well they color in the stamps. My favorite flowers are pansys and second favorite would be gerber daisys. I would love to see stamps sets that includes those flowers. Thanks and keep up the good work.

Beautiful stamp set and I can just smell the sweet peas now!!! How about giant hibiscus flowers from perennial hibiscus and some hosta leaves?
