Flourishes Friday



     Flurry of Flourishes Virtual Express

This week our blog team has put together a delightful “Flurry of Flourishes” trip worth waiting the entire week for.  We are ready to depart, so climb on board  the Flurry of Flourishes, our virtual express vehicle of creativity.  You’ll be glad you did.  The stops at each of the Friends of Flourishes blogs will be ones you will be glad you made. As usual are they beautiful, each totally unique.  Each shows style that will get your creative juices flowing for sure. 

Becca Frecken

 The first stop is at Becca’s blog and her AH moment card is a beautiful example of creativity!  Don’t you agree.  AMAZING and FULL OF GRACE.




She is using Flourishes newly released Figs & Pomegranates.  She says that Marcella Hawley’s newest set for Flourishes  “it’s a sultry, sultry image and it colors up beautifully.” 

Are you ready to travel to our next stop.  OK let GO!

 Our virtual express of creativity takes us to Cindy Haffner’s blog. This stop brings us to a lady that has wonderful ideas to share.

 She also is using our Figs & Pomegranates set.  The set has images in two sizes allowing you greater flexibility in using them.  In this card she has used the smaller version of the image.

 Cindy’s use of rich bold colors and texture embodied in this WOW truly make this stop on our virtual trip a great destination for adaptable techniques that are easy to CASE and I am sure that Cindy would be honored.


Betty Wright decided to do a Winter Wonderland card using Flourishes  Sleigh Ride stamp set. She said she is in  love with this very regal and elegant deer. A great choice of papers and layout make this card a show stopper.  What a elegant winter wonderland!


Next stop is at Christine Okken’s blog.   Hold on tight as the virtual express vehicle pulls in for another look at creativity and usability at it best.  

Are you ready to make Christimas cards, because she will make you drool.  She’s been making Christmas cards like crazy and says it’s a great opportunity to look at your stamps in a new way, how can you use a non-Christmas stamp in a new way to give it a Christmas feel?

A lot of it comes down to paper and color choice, and rich embellishments for me, if it isn’t an obvious Christmas stamp.   Christine’s stamp set for this wonderful card came from the Siberian Iris set.  It sure looks right at home on this Christmas card.

Well our trip is over and I hope you have enjoyed this trip on the Flurry of Flourishes virtual creative express.  Come back next week for another worthwhile trip.

Here is a little bit of what our FABULOUS DESIGN TEAM has put together.  I am putting out a carrot for you to go to each of their sites.  This is surely one you will want to visit!

Cindy Lawerence is creative and generous.  She is sharing with us another OH MY statement at this Flurry of Flourishes stop.  At this site you will be pleased in many ways.  Just look at the richness she has achieved in this card.  She is using You Are Invited another of the Flourishes releases for this month.

Cindy  says “This set is gonna come in SO handy for all of those occasions when I need an invitation that isn’t ‘cutesy’, like so many of them are.  This one is elegant and truly beautiful!  And so is this beautiful card full of rich paper and emblishments. 

You’ll want to be sure you visit her blog and get the details because she is giving away BLOG CANDY today.
