Flourishes New Release Day One

Hi everyone, and welcome to the start of the fabulous Flourishes sneak peeks for July! Today’s set is all about living with “passion!” Want to see how? Meet one of our newest florals...


Prized for its unique beauty, few plants have evoked the same wonder and curiosity as the Passion Flower. It’s that whimsy and wonder that Marcella Hawley has captured in this set. This vibrant and fruitful vine takes center stage in this 4″ by 6″ set. It not only features three scripted sentiments but three smaller sentiments designed to fit inside our Flourishes Tailor-made Classic Tags Die set. What fun, right? Good news, if you like what you see on today’s designers’ posts, this set is available for pre-order now HERE!


My card uses the large image from the set, which I colored on Flourishes Classic White cardstock with Copics from the Crocus and Evergreen collections shown below.  The papers I used are Teresa Collins, and I embellished with some seam binding, an old button, and some gold brads.  My sentiment is from the new set and stamped on a Flourishes Tailor-Made Classic Tags die cut.





Want to win this set? All you need to do is leave some love in the form of a comment on the blogs below! Why? You need to try to figure out…




One of the ladies on our link list below will be picking a name from the comments on her blog post today. We don’t know which one it is… so the more blogs you leave comments on, the more chances you have to win! So what are you waiting for? Head on over and see…..
