About Me


On July 27th, 2007 my long-awaited dream to own my own stamp boutique became a reality and Flourishes was born! Along with two great stamping friends, we opened the virtual doors here on the web. It was our hope to give stampers something beyond what was on the market – beautiful and timeless images for today’s papercrafter. Just by chance, we stumbled upon the talents of illustrator Marcella Hawley, who has been with the company since day one and has helped put Flourishes on the stamping map with her beautifully drawn botanicals. 
In 2010, my partners decided to pursue other interests. While I am indebted to their support, I am now at the helm of my dream company with a huge mission to grow Flourishes and make our stamps available to stamp rooms and stores far and wide! To date, we've produced more than 200 stamp sets created on the finest photo polymer available. The formula for our clear stamps has improved so much over the years, that those who haven’t been clear stamps fans in the past will admit that our stamps rival that of red rubber! Pensacola, Florida, may be Flourishes home base, but this company has proven that the stamping world is a small world after all! Our stamp shipments have covered the globe, which just goes to show, a card maker’s creativity literally knows no bounds.


If you ever have the pleasure of giving us a ring, don't be surprised if I personally answer your calls or emails. My husband, "Mike the Shipping Guy," and I both roll our sleeves up every day to get to know our customers better. It's our pleasure! While I can usually be seen in the studio side of the business with tea in hand, Mike is often in our warehouse packing orders with a smile on his face, a song in his heart and always a joke to tell.
