A Season That Sparkles!

Can you believe we are less than a week away from all the sneak peeks for Flourishes' October release? I will tell you, this will be one of our BIGGEST releases ever. We have 6... yes 6 sets that we will start to sneak peek starting next Tuesday! So be sure to hop back!

Like we do before each release, we want to get you in on some fun! Play along with us for our A Season That Sparkles Challenge and you will have a chance to win each and every one of our sets for October! Wouldn't you love that prize?

Glitzy packages, the new fallen snow, a Christmas ornament shimmering from the lights on the tree - all of these things equal magic during the holiday season. Capture that sparkle on a card and share your creativity!Please leave your link below using Mr. Linky. If you upload to Splitcoast, please use the KEYWORD: FLLCOCT. This contest will close Friday, Oct. 16th at 4PM CST.

To get ready for the big reveal, our DT had a blast getting glittery to give you some inspiration!

Stacy Morgan used some Stickles to make her Sweet Peas twinkle - literally - in the sun!

Leslie Miller added some pizazz with the help of some gold tinsel embossing powder to her tree image from the Flourished Christmas set. She assures me that it sparkles even more in real life - so what do you say - maybe we should all just pay her a visit! :-)

Laura Fredrickson used some of our clear card stock, stamped her Seasonal Wreaths with Stazon and used Stickles on the back of her creation. This is truly festive... don't you think?
Lastisha Yoast must have been covered head to toe with glitter after creating this beauty. She took one of the new pendant dies from Spellbinders to cut out her shape before covering it with tacky glue and glitter! She used the All that Glitters set for her main image.
This gorgeous journal that Christine Okken created using the Cherries and Peaches set uses a mix of sparkly mediums! For her cherries, she covered them with Crystal Effects and then microbeads -- don't they just look "sugared?" The leaves were colored up and then accented with some Spica pens.
Cindy Lawrence wrapped up her creation made with the All Wrapped Up set with a gorgeous splash of color and a little razzle dazzle with the help of some glitter glue!
And, last but not least, I picked up the Spica pens to color up my entire wreath from the Seasonal Wreaths set. I love the vibrant color in real life and the micro sparkle!

Thanks for stopping by! We can't wait to see what you create! Remember, the ever-so-talented Asela Hopkins will be back Sunday as our Limelight Designer. This week, she raided her fabric drawer to add some pizazz to a card! You'll love it!

Love the cards! I made mine Monday (the same day I saw the challenge), but forgot to take the picture until today. Sparkle-y is hard to photograph...at least for me.
