Flourishes Releases Three New Sets!

I love this time of month, when I get to announce the three releases for Flourishes.  This month is not different. 

We have a wonderful new release created by Marcella Hawley for Flourishes.  We worked with her and some very special fabric, the results are grand.  Figs & Pomegranates is the first time Flourishes has created a fruit set and I am sure that it won’t be the last.  I can hardly wait to see the wonderful creations that will result from this set.

The second set is Autumn Flourishes is elegant.  This will be a very versatile set, not one that will be kept for Autumn Sets.  I foresee this great set showing for all occasions and throughout the year. 

Our third set is You Are Invited and it is perfect for the upcoming holiday season.  The future will hold elegant invitations for engagements, weddings, and fun for inviting friends over for drinks.  The signature flourish that we have used so often hidden in our sets are very prominent in this fun set.

Here is a look at these sets:

I think these are enough to drool over down the page…………………….. and at the bottom of all this I have my cards created with these set.  Have any idea which of these wonderful sets I have used????????????










This is my first card a fun card created with a wonderful red card base, layers of Grey and white topped with Basic Grey Urban Prairie  and the brads that co ordinate.  The images were stamped in Basic Grey on white cardstock with a piece of black satin ribbon to tie it all together. 

As I worked I got excited and created a second card with a completely different looking card.  I created this fun Let’s Get Together card for drinks.  This card was created using glossy card stock which I used daubers with these bright colors, Cool Caribbean, Apricot Appeal and Rose Regal.  Then I stamped the martini glasses five time with Versamark then embossed in black detail embossing powder, then I trimmed it down and placed in on a DP from the same Urbane Prairie Basic Grey pad of paper.  Little extra touches of a black & white check ribbon and three brads were added and then based on the black card stock.


Now for another tidbit of news from Flourishes……All Basic Grey papers and brads are 10% off for an entire week.  There are more specials as well, LuminArte and Aqua painters are 10% off as well.  Some of the JustRite items are also on sale so visit the Flourishes site by clicking HERE.

That’s it today.  I am glad you came over to spend some time with me in the Atelier at Flourishes.  I will return with some more cards to feature these sets.  I hope you will come back.
