Release Day, Blog Candy and more...

  Flourishes-Favorites 
 We’re wrapping up our January New Releases at Flourishes and we’ve had a fantastic time showing off these beautiful sets to you this week. Today the Senior Design Team brings you one more round of inspiration using any set from this release that their little hearts desire. We love the variety this month’s sets have to offer and we’re looking forward to showing you more!

I was into a yellow theme this week apparently as I colored these beautiful Peony in yellow shades today. :-)  My Peony from Flowers for Jan is stamped on Classic white card stock using Memento tuxedo black ink.
Colored with Copic Collections:




I die cut the flower using Spellbinders Classic Circles that I then layered onto a Color Made Easy True Blue card stock using Perfectly Pierced Classic Frames Die. Took a piece of scrap paper from the Echo Park Keepin Cozy paper pad and layered more CME True Blue and some CME Sunflower. Tied off a Color Made Easy Sunflower Antique Gold ribbon bow. The top corner is yes more of the Candi in a shimmery dark blue. I am loving these babies!! Stamped the sentiment and die cut using Perfectly Pierced Victorian Oval die and Voila!

First off GORGEOUS card! My favorite color is yellow so I just love it, plus you can never go wrong with blue and yellow as far as I am concerned! ;) Secondly my most favorite stamp set is the Hydrangea one, I tried to order it just a week or so ago with the rest of my order, it was ON the order, but when I received the box, it was crossed off! :( Chatted with Theresa she said that it may be discontinued.....BOO! (so on a side note if you or anyone else on the team has a Hydrangea set to sell, I would GLADLY buy it!) ;) Thank so much! Have a wonderful weekend! c_glass(AT)Verizon(DOT)net

Love your card....beautiful coloring. Great candy, Stacy! I have been a follower for some time. My favorite stamp set and most used is A Year of Flowers(all 3 sets since it hard to pick one of the 3) and Zinnias ranks as a favorite too. I just love the release Flowers for Jan and will have to have that one. As you can see, I love all the floral sets by Marcella.

loulou said...

Beautiful card. Your colouring is fantastic. Yellow and black always look stunning

My favourite Flourishes stamp set is "Blooming Aussie Florals". I love the Flourishes Artists (Marcella in this case) have catered for us Aussies. I love being able to stamp GDay on my cards. Thank you for the chance to win your fantastic candy.

Gorgeous card Stacy! Love the combo of yellow and black. It's hard to choose a favourite Flourishes stamp set, there are so many to love. I would have to say that I love and have used my Hydrangea stamp set the most. Thanks for the chance to win some fab products.

Connie MacFarlane said...

Just tried to post, got an error message so don't think it went through. Beautiful card Stacy. Love the black and yellow colour combo. It is hard to choose just one Flourishes stamp set, there are so many to love. I would have to say the I love and have used my Hydrangea set the most. Thanks for the opportunity to win some fab products.

I really loved your card! I have just recently found Flourishes, so I am not familiar with them, so my favorite is the Flowers for Jan! I can't wait to use them! I'll be ordering soon!

Nana Griffin said...

Lovely card Stacy. I love so many of the flower sets but if I have to pick one it probably would be the zinnia. I love zinnias and have to plant them in my flower garden in the spring always.

Marsha J Reed said...

Beautiful card. My favorite stamp set is Swan Lake. I love swans and collect them so I just had to have that stamp set.

Melanie MacKenzie said...

Just became a follower on your blog. I will enjoy getting all the updates and seeing your beautiful work. Well, let me see, my favourite Flourishes stamps set ... that is a tough one but I guess I would have to say A Year in flowers (all three sets). I reach for that set over and over to make projects. Thanks so much for a chance to win. Cheers.

You always colour things so well, Stacy :) Lovely flower and thanks for the chance to win. I don't think I have a favorite Flourishes set, but if I had to chose it would most likely be a flower set of some sort :)

TLady said...

What is my FAVORITE Flourishes Stamp Set? GARDEN GATE!!!!!!:) OF COURSE, it HAD TO BE a set WITH FLOWERS!!!!!!!!:)

Cards By Betty said...

My very favorite stamp set is
Tulips for Friends because we have a dutch community in Iowa where we have relatives and friends. Tt would be good to use on cards for these people. Thanks for sharing.

stampqueen said...

Love the yellow peony - my Mom had mostly white, pink and red but one lovely yellow one too :)
And what's so easy peasy about choosing a favorite Flourishes set???? Goodness that is a tough one - can I saw 'all of the flower sets?' I guess I like the Old Tea Rose and the Anemones ones best right now if I HAD to narrow it down a bit.... :)

D- said...

First off more yellow? lol.
Love this one, too.
You've inspired me to give yellow a try.
Favorite flourishes set? Easy? Are you kidding. I LOVE all my Flourishes babies but if I have to choose I think...
*from ones I've had it would be the That's a Wrap set.
*from my newbies it would have to be the Lots of Thought set.
But I do have to add I really do love all my others sets as well.
Thanks for sharing.

Gorgeous, gorgeous card.....love the peony in yellow. I'm from Indiana and the peony is our state flower. I've been waiting for this flower to come out in a stamp. I have been a follower for a little while. I don't have a lot of Flourishes stamps yet, but I'm working on it. lol I guess my favorite so far si Chrysantemums. Thanks for the chance to win!

polycrafty said...

Those peonies are just gorgeous in yellow! You've put together an amazing blog candy package - thanks for the chance to win it!

So far, my favorite Flourishes set is the Friendship & Flowers set. But I have been using the So Distressed set more and more lately.

I love your card, and the black and yellow combo. I would have to say my favorite stamp set is "In the Garden" because it's versatile. I also love "Butterflies and Blossoms." Thanks for the chance to win, Stacy.

Judy Woodland said...

Gorgeous card! I love yellow and navy blue together, which, I think, is what you have used here. Beautifully done.
I love the beautiful florals that Flourishes is famous for. The detail of the stamps is awesome. I have to say that the new Flowers for Jan set may be one of my favorites. That Iris is beyond STUNNING!!!!

Julie Koerber said...

LOVE the colors and the layout! So very, very pretty Ms. Stac!!!

Janis said...

I am fairly new to Flourishes, so I am not well familiar with their products. In my short months around here,
though, I think my fave is the Flowers for January that we've seen so wonderfully showcased!!

This is so pretty! I love the yellow Peony, such beautiful coloring! I have so many Flourishes stamps, it's hard to choose a favorite but I have to say Sweet Violets is one I use often and really cherish! What fabulous blog candy, thanks for the opportunity to win it!

I don't usually reach for yellow but I'm loving these last 2 cards you made! Gorgeous work, Stacy!

Tracy said...

Hi Stacy,
Happy New Year, I have been a follower for ages and am currently using Feedly, but signed up on the side as well. My favorite Flourishes stamp set is an old one, I think one of the first Flourishes set I purchased- Sleigh Ride.
Thanks for chance to win, and looking forward to your inspiration in 2014.

Leslie Miller said...

Beautiful! I love the yellow. It's so cheerful and your card is a bright and happy beauty. I don't know that I could pick a Flourishes' favorite, there are so many. I do love the fruits, and in the past I have thought perhaps the clematis was a favorite -- Blossoms and Butterflies I think it's called. I follow you on Bloglovin so I don't miss your posts anymore. Thank you for offering the blog candy, Stacy.

Janet Mack said...

Flourishes flowers are so pretty and lifelike. My favorite set is an older one, I think it is called Summer on the Patio. I love the table and chair.

wei said...

It's hard to choose a favorite one, because Flourishes stamp sets are all pretty! I would have to say that I love is Hydrangea stamp set and Flowers for January set.Thanks~

Barbara said...

Another wonderful card. Your design sketch really shows that gorgeously colored peony beautifully. Love the pretty yellow ribbon and bow and the sweet sentiment. I have been a follower for quite some time and love your inspirational cards and creative designs. Well I think my favorite stamp set will be Flowers for Jan, but right now I really love using my Italian Garden set. Reminds me of spring. Thank you for your generous opportunity to win some really lovely blog candy. Thank you Stacy.

Lagene said...

WOWZERS! This is Gorgeous! I just started following your site, love your inspiration! My favorite stampset to date is Flowers for Jan...The Iris is my all time favorite flower and I also love wisteria and peonies!

Cindi said...

Love this yellow and blue color combination. Looks very classy. My favorite Flourishes Stamp...very hard to say as I love them all. But if I had to pick I would say "Dear Santa". It was my Christmas Card this year. Thanks for a chance to win.

Greta said...

Forgot to say my favorite Flourishes set. Hard to name a number 1, but way up there would be Fanciful Flourishes.

no blog post said...

My favorite Flourishes set would have to be "From the Garden," there is lots to mix and match with that set. A close second is "Butterflies and Blossoms." I love your use of pattern papers on cards, sometimes it's significant and other times very subtle. Thanks for the opportunity to win a great prize. I enjoy visiting your blog.

TLady said...

OK! So, I'm GUESSING you can put in on this MORE THAN ONCE! :) My OTHER FAVORITE stamp set from Flourishes would be.....SO DISTRESSED!!!!!!! I JUST used it this morning!!! :) It's SOOOO VERSITILE!!!!!!! AND FUN!!!!!!!:)

I would have to say the set for Jan's flowers. If these are her favorites, who can go wrong with irises and wild roses anytime.
