The Flourishes Grand Finale!

Hi all! I 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!

Speaking of deals.. if you are looking for some great sale items... HAVE YOU CHECKED OUT FLOURISHES' GAMBLER'S SALE? All items on their 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!
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, Flourishes has 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! They 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!

On to my creation! 

I just think this floral is gorgeous! I used the Silhouette cut file and cut out the shape from Flourishes Classic White, I stamped my image using Rich Cocoa ink and then colored it up with Copic markers (see the supplies used below to see which collections I used!) Add some fun decorative paper - a mix of My Mind's Eye papers, add some Melon seam binding ribbon, some bling and paper piercing and... you're done! Just that easy peasy!

Here's a close up! You can see that I did add some glitter glue to the center of my flowers to add a little extra pizzazz! 


And here is the sentiment -- spelled the way the Aussies spell it! 


If you look closely, you'll notice a new die cut shape on my card -- yep -- I used one of Flourishes' new custom dies called Perfectly Pierced Classic Windows! These dies are so cool! 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!

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! :-) 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...


And guess what -- today there will be FIVE mystery bloggers! So, the more love you leave in the form of a comment on these blogs below, the better your chances of winning!! We'll be giving away today's set - Bloomin' Aussie Florals plus we'll be giving away one each of our four new die sets! So get hopping and amp up your chance to WIN!
If you want a chance to win the entire stamp set release for November, don't forget about the Be Progressive Challenge that closes today at 5PM EST!!  There is still time to enter! Thanks for stopping by this week and joining me for all the fun! Happy Stamping!
