With Gratitude



Today begins a big and wonderful week with Flourishes!  And... I get to unveil the new appreciation gift for FLIP members for the year ahead.  FLIP is the awesome Customer Loyalty Program at Flourishes

Starting August 1st, when you go on a shopping spree in the Flourishes store and spend $100 on an individual purchase not including shipping or taxes, you will receive this beautiful new stamp set penned by the ever-so-talented Marcella Hawley! This set called With Gratitude will soon be hot off the press and ready for your inky fingers! Check this beauty out! 


I had some fun combining both Copic Coloring (Lenten Rose Collection and Fields Collection) and Prismacolor Pencils to get the look I wanted - realistic looking petals with a smoky blue background to match the pretty papers (7 Gypsies Victoria DP).  I also used some new ribbon from the store (Cotton Twill in Ivory), and stamped one of the sentiments that runs in a border onto it.  I used my Grand Calibur to cut out both the main oval and the Borders - Fair Isle Borderabilities.  


Here are more details on the FLIP Program:  This set will not be available for the next year to anyone but FLIP MEMBERS! But, that's not all! When you recieve your brand new MEMBER'S ONLY stamp set, you will be a full-fledged member of FLIP for the 2011-2012 year! This is your pass to savings! Once a month, for one day only, we will have a sale you will FLIP over! And ONLY members will be able to cash in with 15% off ANYTHING in the store! August is the first qualifying month leading up to September 1st - our first big sale for the new FLIP year! This promotion will expire next August 1st, 2012. Remember current FLIP members will need to re-qualify.    Join early! Customers recieve benefits only from the time they qualify. So, unfortunately, you can't make up for lost time.


And here's who else is previewing this gorgeous set for you today.
