Flourishes Progressive Challenge – 4 Ways to Win!

Hi all and welcome to the kick off of our Flourishes November release! Are you ready for a new spin on the release week fun? Well, we are! We’ve gotten some requests and comments lately that more folks wished they could play in our noon time challenges. They were fun-filled ways to win our release, but were too quick for many of you to play. So, we listened to your comments and this release – we’re switching things up a bit!

Today, we’re hosting a 4-step challenge that will give you not one, not two, not three but FOUR ways to win our New Release Bundle! Here’s how it works! Throughout the day, we’ll be revealing elements to our progressive challenge. Want the first portion?

STEP 1: Simply use this sketch! Just that easy!

And now for…


STEP 2: Use a Monochromatic Color Scheme! Need some inspiration? Check out our COLOR MADE EASY System!

Once you are done with Step 1 and Step 2, be sure to link up your creation on the Flourishes blog using the Inklinkz widget. HERE’S THE CATCH!!! If you want to be eligible for ALL FOUR ways to win, you need to be progressive and add  your creation to each step of the challenge. You can make 4 cards or wait until all four steps are revealed and incorporate all four steps into one card. BUT, even if you only make one card using all the steps, you need to link it up on all four posts. will chose four winners so we want to make sure you are counted for each step you used on your creation! If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword FLLCNOV12 as your keyword for all four parts to this challenge.  You have until nextFriday, November 16th at 5PM EST to enter – so get those creative juices flowing! You have a shot at four sets valued at more than $60! Woohoo!

And stay tuned to the Flourishes blog…. more steps are to come throughout the day!

Now, I have a card to share with you using Steps 1 and 2…


I kinda' flipped the sketch upside down, and not only did I use the Poppy Patch stamp set from Flourishes, but I used the Poppy Color Made Easy collection which includes the card stock, seam binding and Copic markers used here (Poppy and Pistachio collections).  I also used the Blush Kaisercraft pearls for embellishment, and a sentiment from the Tag Lines stamp set.  And I fired up my Silhouette and used the Poppy Patch Silhouette cut file to cut out my poppy on Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock, and stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Be sure to stop and see my design team partner Christine Okken who also has a Step 1 & 2 card to share with you for today’s challenge!

Again, be sure to stop at the Flourishes blog for all the details on this new challenge, and check back later for more steps you can take for more chances to WIN!

Happy stamping!
