Celebrating Home!

We are 4 days away from the first Flourishes release of 2009 and these three stamp sets focus on all the things that matter most to us - celebrating a new home, another year, important annoucements and friends. And, when you see these three new sets, we are sure you'll fall in love with all the ways you can use them!

To get ready, we thought we'd usher in a challenge. An "inspired by" challenge. All you need to do is find something in our home as a point of inspiration for a card creation or altered project and let those creative juices flow! Post a comment with a link here on this post, or upload to Splitcoast using the key word - FLLCJAN. Use Flourishes stamps if you have them, or...if you don't...join us anyway! We'd love to see what you cook up! Afterall, if your name is drawn- you'll win all three of the stamp sets being released this month!

So... want to see how I was inspired?? I was getting ready for my day when I just started to stare at the comforter in my bedroom and a vase we have on our dresser. Here's the comforter...

Here's the vase....
And, here's my card! I wanted to use the twiggy elements to create a vase. So, I used my Summer Blossoms stamp set and punched out a vase. Then, I used the same gold and brown swirly pattern to bring in some pop!
I have to admit, not the best card I have ever done - but I used the inspiration!! :-) So, take a trip around your own home and find a little inspiration! You can click HERE for all the official details! The contest will close Friday, January 16th at 5 p.m. eastern and the winner will be revealed in our first ever RELEASE PARTY on Splitcoast on Friday evening! Stay tuned for all the details!

Have fun!
