Autumn Blossoms

We hope you've enjoyed this week's peeks and we are excited to say that all of the stamp sets that we've been showing off this week are in the Flourishes Store HERE! We also have some exciting news to share as well -- for three out of the four sets, there is a Silhouette Cut File available as well! These files made exclusively for the Silhouette Cameo offer the ability to custom cut images from the Garden Picks, Autumn Blossoms and With Gratitude stamp sets. Keep reading to learn more! Or, click HERE to visit these files in the Flourishes store! On to today's last stamp set to be unveiled! It's one that pays hommage to the beautiful blossoms of fall!



I'm so excited about today's set!  It's part of Flourishes "The Blossoms Collection", and it is a beautiful array of autumn blossoms illustrated by Marcella Hawley featuring a bouquet, corner stamps, and pieces to create your own borders or frames. Add in a trio of all occasion sentiments and you have the perfect set to create cards for every day correspondence. Set measures 4 by 6" and is the perfect companion to sister sets Happily Ever After SS199 and Letters in Blossom SS198. If you like this set, you might also like our Summer Blossoms set as well featuring summer florals! The Flourishes design team has really gone all out showing off this beautiful set!


I had so much fun giving this bouquet some Autumn vibrance, pairing it with some MME paper (Indie Chic).  The card is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 square.  I've used some Circle Spellbinders as well as Parisian Motifs and Accents to play up the beauty of it.  And then colored it up with a huge selection of Copics to get the tones I wanted.  


So lovely isn't it?  I used one of the leafy-border elements on the sentiment, rounding it slightly to make it work in the circle then accenting it with some Kaiser Pearls.  Still my all time favourite ribbon too...May Arts Iridescent Ivory.  

As we mentioned earlier, this set does have a companion cut file that you can use with your Silhouette Electronic Cutter. This digital download is purchased from the store and upon completion of your order, you'll receive a link to download your Silhouette Cameo file. This file will only work using the Silhouette Cameo and the Silhouette Studio Software. This file offers cut file for all stamp images excluding sentiments. We think these will add so much fun when creating. While we plan to release cut files with our new stamp set releases, we also plan in the coming months to add files for some of our tried and true favorite Flourishes stamp sets!  My Silhouette will arrive shortly at my doorstep - so I'm really looking forward to a whole new design world with it!
