One Layer Blossoms!

Free for All Friday with Border

Friday has come around again! We hope you have some fun plans for the weekend, and even better, some creativity planned in there. Our Design Team has pulled together some beauties again today with items in the store that are now discounted even more! Woo Hoo! It's week three of our six-week Gambler's Sale and we're stepping up the discount again -- this time to 30% off store wide! With that kind of discount, some of your favorite sets on your wish list won't last long!

Why is this sale a gamble? Well, ALL of the items now in the store will be going, going, gone -- never to return again. So, if you see something you really want -- buy it now or take a gamble to see how low the price will go! Like we said, this week everything is 30% off with the code GAMBLERS30. Just use that code in the coupon box at the time of check out to get 30% off your entire order, even on already reduced sale prices! Each Monday, between now and February 24th, we'll be adding another 10% off! So that means this coming Monday if you gamble longer...the discount is 40% off.

Okay... enough talking.. let's share a card!

I know this card isn't really my "style" -- but that was the point. :-) I am terrible at one layer cards and this is just that! I did add a little polka dot border on the bottom and then, I did cut some ivory linen paper to serve as an insert on the inside. Why? Well, for those of you that color with Copic markers, you know how they bleed through the paper. I needed to cover all that up. 

I started by stamping the set Summer Blossoms with Toffee Crunch Memento Ink onto Flourishes Classic Ivory Card Stock and then, grabbed my Copic markers. I actually used so many different Copic collections that I am not sure I can name them all! I'll try! I know I used the Lenten Rose, Candy Pink, New Leaves, Pistachio, Sunflower and Tiger Lily Collections for sure. And then, to add a little bit of shading, I picked up the Creamy Collection. What are those collections? Well, you can find them all HERE in the Flourishes Color Collections Swatch Book.

From there, I stamped the sentiment from the set in the bottom corner. I added some embossed lines using my Scor-Pal and then, added some pink square jewels and... ta da! Here's a close up! You can see that I also added a wee bit of glitter glue to the centers of the flowers and to the berries!

And that, my friends, is it!! While you're hopping, we do have a special deal for you to take advantage of!
Flourishes' MYSTERY BAGS were WILDLY popular in the past and so, why not bring them back? Each bag is valued at roughly $40 but... you pay only $25!!! Each bag has two stamp sets -- YES TWO! One is an unpackaged set that we cannot sell because it doesn't have an index sheet. But, it stamps perfectly and would love a new home! Each bag also has a fun tutorial sheet showcasing a card or technique. Add in a few yards of ribbon and an embellishment and that is what is in each Mystery Bag. It's one heck of a bargain! Click HERE to visit the store and pick one up today! Now here’s some of our Senior Design Team with fabulous things to show to you! If you love their creation and want to make one just like it -- don’t gamble too long!
Have fun shopping! Don't forget the code GAMBLERS30 -- and remember that once these items are gone they will be gone forever! Thanks for stopping by -- I'll see you back here Monday with a dose of creativity to kick off your week!
