Citrus Friend

All of you folks looking for a bargain? We've got one at Flourishes! This week, prices are dropping again in our six-week Gambler's Sale. Starting now, all prices STOREWIDE are 40% off! With prices this low, your favorite sets won't be on our store shelves for long! In fact, many are already gone for good!

How about I start by showing off what I made today?  It’s very cheerful and bright! It will make you feel like eating an orange :)

I started with the very lovely ranunculus flower in the set Sweet Nature.  Honestly I think that ranunculus are some of the most unique blooms out there.  So compact, so full of colour, just amazing!  I’ve seen the fields upon fields of them blooming in Carlsbad, CA, it’s really quite a sight as you can see below.  

I stamped the tiny bouquet of blooms onto Flourishes Classic White cardstock (wow already paper out there I’m telling you!  But here’s a link to Classic Ivory still left), colouring with some fun orange Copics and then carefully trimming out.  I placed this onto a Flourishes Perfectly Pierced Classic Frame die, where I had stamped the inside of the die with the scripted sentiment from the set in Memento Pear Tart ink, sponging the inside of the die too to get that nice citrusy green.  The designer papers are Echo Park Everyday Ecclectic.  

I added a couple of cute pennants sewn in and accented with Enamel dots.  

Here’s the inside inked with Tangelo and Pear Tart ink with the single bloom stamps.  

Here’s the sale details this week.  Remember, items are going fast now.  Everytime I check something else is gone from the store!  

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 40% off with the code GAMBLERS40. Just use that code in the coupon box at the time of check out to get 40% off your entire order, even on already reduced sale prices! Each Monday, between now and February 24th, we'll be adding another 10% off!

And while you're shopping -- don't forget about our MYSTERY BAGS! Each bag is valued at roughly $40 but... you pay only $25 (before the discount)!!! 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, a few yards of ribbon and an embellishment. What a bargain! Click HERE to visit the store and pick one up today!

Before you go -- be sure to hop on over and see what Flourishes Design Team whipped up for weekend inspiration! Most if not all of the sets that they used are still there for the taking -- so hop on over and be creatively inspired!
