Make A Wish--Support GinaK in this Great Cause

This week officially kicks off a program to support the very generous GinaK, in her stamp set to support the Make a Wish Foundation. There are plenty of reasons to get the set:
--one is so so darn cute,
--second is so darn flexible
--third it is a joy to work with in creating some very --useful cards and
fourth, $7.00 of the set proceeds go directly to the Make a Wish Foundation. I am sure you will come up with lots of other reasons to get this set...just as Nike says...just do it!

Flourishes and its very talented Design Team have all received a set courtesy of Flourishes. They all will be creating wonderful designs to showcase this great cause. On Wednesday we plan a joint banner with GinaK and Flourishes to really make a splash to get this program in the star realm. I hope you will make your way over to the GinaK site and get one of these great sets. They are red rubber, have everything to mount if you purchase the mounted set, but if you have opted to go unmounted there is that option as well.

Flourishes will receive no tangible part of the transaction, only the good feeling that we have truly helped a great cause. When purchasing this set, please mention to GinaK that Flourishes sent you.

Thanks In Advance
Jan Marie

Oh the card: Base is SU Whisper White, New Designer Paper in Sky Blue and Designer paper Charbon --although I used the chocolate version--for this I used daubers to color in the cream with certainly celery to get the nice green and brown effect. The top of the card is another swirly sheet from the new Sky Blue group and I overstamped with Lovely as a Tree. The focal point was stamped with Palette Hybrid Noir and colored in with my colored pencils. The tiny ribbon was a gift in a thank you card from Ellen Hutson in my last was just the right touch to finish off the drop your pennies and help make a wish come true, please, pretty please.

New Ribbons!!

Fresh, cute, and sophisticated!! The Flourishes boutique has just added some new May Arts ribbons. An adorable polka dot grosgrain has polka dots on one side and basic black on the reverse. Pretty and feminine are the ruffled edge ribbons in black, gold and olive green. Classic and sophisticated, we've added black velvet and silver/grey velvet. Rounding out the new additions include a fuchsia satin and reversible fuchsia/gold satin. Please check out these wonderful additions to the boutique.
Julia Station Pink Baby card that had been featured in the Flourishes Designer Gallery has been selected for publication in the spring. She will also be adding the same artwork in blue. Congratulations to Julia - once the card is published we will add it into our gallery.

Oh Canada!!!

Do we have news for our stamping friends to the north!! We are happy to announce that we have worked out the details and are able to ship to Canada. We have established shipping rates that we feel are fair and reasonable for us and our customers. We look forward to doing business "in" Canada and hope this will make purchasing from Flourishes, LLC more advantageous.

Flourishes is now taking PREORDERS for Spellbinder Nestabilities Dies. We have been playing with them in the studio and absolutely LOVE this product. We ran them through two different die cut machines and are very pleased with the way they cut and emboss.
Since these are PREORDERS, we don't expect to receive shipment until later this month, so please make note of the special PREORDER instructions on the store front.
The 5 complete sets (Petite Scallop Circles, Classic Scallop Circles, Classic Scallop Oval, Classic Scallop Square and Classic Scallop Rectangle) are $79.99 each. While this may seem significant, it represents a $20.00 savings if you were to purchase each shaped set individually. The compete sets contain many dies so this is a real value. The individual shape sets are $24.99 each.
Please visit the store for more information on these products.
