Day 3 Flourishes August Release AUTUMN BLOSSOMS

Friday, 10 August 2012
Hello Blog Friends,

  It is Friday and the last day of Flourishes Release for August.  It has been a really busy month for all of us and we're not done with the Flourishes Birthday Bash. So far we announced our Color Made Easy Paper and Ribbons that match our Copic Marker Collections, that Flourishes now carries the Silhouette Cameo electronic cutter, and we released two of this months sets.    
We hope you've enjoyed this week's peeks and we are excited to say that all of the stamp sets that we've been showing off this week are in the Flourishes Store HERE!

OK, this is where I get really excited!  Flourishes is now carrying the Silhouette Cameo!   We also have some exciting news to share as well -- for three out of the four sets, there is a Silhouette Cut File available as well!  These files made exclusively for the Silhouette Cameo offer the ability to custom cut images from the Garden Picks, Autumn Blossoms, and With Gratitude stamp sets. Keep reading to learn more!  Or, click HERE to visit these files in the Flourishes store! On to today's last stamp set to be unveiled! It's one that pays homage to the beautiful blossoms of fall!


This is set two of  The Blossoms Collection.  This beautiful array of autumn blossoms illustrated by Marcella Hawley features a bouquet, corner stamps, and pieces to create your own borders or frames. Add in a trio of all occasion sentiments and you have the perfect set to create cards for every day correspondence. Set measures 4" by 6" and is the perfect companion to sister sets Happily Ever After, SS199, and Letters in Bloom, SS198.  If you like this set, you might also like our Summer Blossoms set as well featuring summer florals! The Flourishes design team has really gone all out showing off this beautiful set!

Here is the card I made using the Autumn Blossoms set.  I recently received a card from Leslie Miller and I love the layout so today I cased it.

 I used Authentique "Carefree" 6" by 6" pad along with Flourishes Classic Ivory paper.  The ribbon is from the new 1-2-3 Create Kit Delightful.  I cut my cuts using the new Cut Files for the Autumn Blossoms set on to the Ivory Classic, then copied the file onto a new file on my Cameo and enlarged it, then cut from another sheet of designer paper from the Carefree pad.  I stamped the image and sentiment with Memento Grey Flannel ink, then colored the image on the ivory with the following Copics:

I colored a few tiny Kaiser pearls with the same Copic to give them a silver look, to finish off the bow I added the top of a stick pin--I cut off the stick pin and glued it in place.  I like the look of the Silhouette cut file and will continue to work on mastering the re-sizing of the file image, this was my first attempt.  Brave of me to make it for the first time and use it besides.  You are going to love this new dimension that you can give your cards. Check out the store for the details on purchasing your own Silhouette Cameo from Flourishes.



As we mentioned earlier, this set does have a companion cut file that you can use with your Silhouette Electronic Cutter. This digital download is purchased from the store and upon completion of your order, you'll recieve a link to download your Silhouette Cameo file. This file will only work using the Silhouette Cameo and the Silhouette Studio Software. This file offers cut files for all stamp images excluding sentiments. We think these will add so much fun when creating. While we plan to release cut files with our new stamp set releases, we also plan in the coming months to add files for some of our tried and true favorite Flourishes stamp sets! This feels like a Birthday Bash Gift to me!!
