Flourishes New Release is Here

Hi all! We sincerely hope you’ve enjoyed all the sneak peeks this week! Today, we get to take the lid off the entire release AND share some fun things that are also in the Flourishes store as well! Are you ready? We are so excited we can hardly stand it! For starters — all the stamp sets that we have shown off this week are now in the Flourishes store HERE! Remember, you can take advantage too of the New Release Bundle and save 10% when you purchase all four sets in a bundle! And.. if you are looking for some great sale items… HAVE YOU SEEN OUR GAMBLER’S SALE? All items on our sale page dropped another 5% — they are now 25% off! Click HERE to see the savings!
Today, all the designers are showing off a set that was inspired by the Land Down Under! Yes, Flourishes Fans — we are talking about Australia! Our own Kathy Jones, who hails from Australia,  helped develop this set concept, which has two beautiful botanicals as the  centerpiece of the set! We also have heard from many folks (Australians and Canadians alike) that they wish we offered a set that spelled greetings an a way that they were accustomed to – words like “colour,” “favourite,” “neighbour,” and more! So, we put our thinking caps on and today, we introduce you to….

Take a trip to the land “Down Under” to see a pair of beautiful botanicals alive in this island continent. In this set called Bloomin’ Aussie Florals, Artist Marcella Hawley brings the Golden Wattle and Sturt’s Desert Rose to life with these illustrations and pairs them with true Aussie sentiments!
And…. to serve as the perfect partner to this set we offer….

A Silhouette Cameo Cut File to coordinate with this set! You’ll find the new file HERE. And, if you click HERE, you will see the file in an .SVG format, to make it compatible with other digital cutting machines! We also have a cut file for the set we peeked yesterday called Stitched for You. You’ll find the Silhouette file HERE and the SVG file HERE! Fun stuff!
You might think that this is the end of the excitement, but NO! We have more! Fresh off the manufacturing line comes a whole new line of custom dies! These aren’t just any shapes. They are special! Why? Because in addition to being nested template dies custom created by Spellbinders Paper Arts exclusively for Flourishes, these dies all offer pierced accents! Say goodbye to piercing templates – these dies do it for you in one step! They are all a part of the Perfectly Pierced Collection! And, here’s a peek!
Dies-4
Dies-3
  Dies-1-459x550 
You’ll see our designers using these dies in their posts today – what fun! I know we’ll get asked if stamp sets are on the way to coordinate with these beauties and the answer is undoubtedly – YES! We just knew that you didn’t need a coordinating stamp set to use these dies and so, we wanted YOU to enjoy them NOW!
And now, for my card today I have used the beautiful Sturt’s Desert Rose from the new stamp set, cutting out the image with the Silhouette cut file on Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock and stamping with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

My roses are colored with Copics from the Lenten Rose and Pistachio collections.  I matted my image with the new Perfectly Pierced Classic Hourglass die behind it, and used papers on my card from the Echo Park “Graceful” paper pad.  I accented with some seam binding, chocolate Kaisercraft pearls, and a Color Made Easy button on the tag (from the Poppy collection.)
So, do you want to win some goodies or what? We’ll have not one, not two, not three, not four but FIVE ways to win today. All you need to do is figure out…
