Gear Flower

Hi crafters!  Welcome to the final day of the mini Festive launch.  There are only two posts today, but they are both really nice!  I am starting with the Gear Flower.  Although this has been designed to look like a flower, it is much more than that.  You can use this as a shape for a focal element or to seat a sentiment upon or just a design.  It isn't even specifically Christmas orientated, depending on how you use the set, it can be so versatile.  The set has five dies in it an they can be used individually or layered up.  Leave your comment before you go but join us back here for the final post at noontime today.  Hope to see you then!  All for now, Sue x

This is fabulous! Love this die, and you have used the Joy die with it. This flower would go so well on a steampunk card in darker colours.

Hi Sue. Another die set that's not all that grungy compared to some in this launch and I love your sample, it's one that I would use happily. Wonder if Crew Trish is on the same page lol our uncertainty regarding steampunk/grunge seem to be the same.
Enjoy your Sunday xxx

Beautiful card and die.

Donita Naylor said...

This flower is like the floral spray grew up and got all fancy for a night of dancing in a full gown. I don't need a die like this, but there's always room for d to win it would be so exciting. I can see building up the new flower with more gears for a more 3D look. My heart is all aflutter for the chance to win. Many thanks to you and Creative Expressions.

Izzy said...

Hi Sue,

What a pretty floral die, as Yvonne May has said it looks like applique lace - one you could happily use all year round, either as a focal point or supporting element on a card and with 5 dies in the set a lot of fun to be had making up the flowers...

Jackie Durrant said...

Good morning Sue, I'm sure the gears would not be noticed at first look as the design is so pretty and it is only a close look that shows up all the elements in it. Beautiful card. Love from Jackie xx

Hi Sue

Another year rounder in your mini collection, I am sure this will prove popular whether you are a steampunk fan or not.

Ann said...

Good Morning Sue. This die is a lovely example of your never ending talents. It can be used all year round for female cards. And if you are making men's cards and need extra cogs and things for a background you get loads to snip off in one pass. Well done again Sue. Sending best wishes to everyone who comments today. Someone is going to be very lucky. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.

Crafty vonnie said...

Good morning Sue,
Absolutely stunning card. I can see the centre circle being used as wheels for a bike or car & the outer pieces for frames. I also love all the dies together to make your beautiful flower. Sue thank you for giving us so much versatility from this die set as it will make so many beautiful projects. Yvonne xx

Deb E Isle of Wight said...

Beautiful post and the die almost has a doily effect and isn't immediately noticeable as cogs... Again love the versatility...

Hi Sue,
