Nurture Yourself... with a SALE!

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!
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!

Today I thought I'd do a little stamping therapy and nurture my creativity... LOL!  So I pulled out my Berry Sweet Frames, Simply Charming and my From the Garden stamp sets and do a little layering and colouring.

I started off my cutting a Perfectly Pierced Classic Frame from Classic Ivory Cardstock.   Then I stamped the fun gingham stamp from the Berry Sweet Frames stamp set in a teal coloured ink.  I coloured in a few squares with Copics.

Then I stamped, masked and stamped my flower pot from the From the Garden stamp set, also onto Classic Ivory Cardstock.  I coloured it using the following Copic Markers and then fussy cut it out:
BG11, BG13, BV31, E31, E33, E34, E35, 
E37, G21, G24, Y000, Y00, Y02, Y15 and YG21.

Here's a close up of my focal image adhered to another die cut part of the  Perfectly Pierced Classic Frame die set...
I also added a stamped heart locket from the Simply Charmingstamp set and a pretty little double bow using "Chocolate Brown" Seam Binding Ribbon.

I also finished off the inside too; with a simple sentiment and some more gingham stamping.  I used Memento "Cantaloupe" and "Tuxedo Black" ink to stamp and Ranger "Scattered Straw" ink to ink up the edges.

Thanks for joining me today!  I hope I've inspired you to grab your stamps and create something to nurture your creative soul today.

Before you go -- be sure to hop on over and see what the Flourishes Design Team created to kick off your week! Most if not all of the sets that they used are still there for the taking -- so hop on over and be creatively inspired!
