Star Flower Flourish


Hello crafters!  We have a short day today so this is the penultimate post for the day.  I love this one though, introducing the Star Flower Flourish die set.  The die is a double ended flourish with a larger centre flower and smaller flowers on the ends of the flourish.  As shown here, you can see that it makes some lovely patterns to use that are perfect as focal elements for your cards and projects!  It was truly fun to play around with this one and see all of the interesting combinations you can create with it!  Not to mention, there are extra dies that allow you to back the flowers or make extra flowers to add to the flourish.  Leave a comment if this one is singing to you!  The final post for the launch will be here at 3pm today.  All for now. Sue x

Hi Sue

I think this Star Flower Flourish is one of my favourites. I love it. This will be a very versatile die to have and there will be lots of possibilities to create interesting combinations with it. The extra dies are great too, so that you can back your flowers or make extra ones. I love how you’ve used it to design your card. It is so pretty.

Love Helen xxx

Wow!! Hey Sue and everyone I love both the die and the card. I just love how you use the dies in alternative ways. I would not have said that die made that card, very pretty and intricate. I dont believe it's nearly finished I'm loving all the inspiration. I'm off to craft now, before I'm back to a long and stressful 12 hour shift tomorrow. Happy crafting everyone and stay safe hugs Donna x

samantha wade said...

This one has got me thinking, Would love to play with this one.swirls are my favourite. Also loving the flower dies to layer up with it. Genius.
This is the only positive about being off work, I can see all the blog posts, craft with products I’ve not used for years and get creative to take my mind off everything and until my husband comes home from work which is such a worry. Take care and be safe. X Samantha Wade.

Wow! I absolutely adore this die set. It has a lacy look and the way you used it on your beautiful card show there will be lots of options to use it. This is my favorite die set of the release so far! I can’t really imagine there could be another that would be more gorgeous but that would mean underestimating your incredible talents. There might be another this beautiful but I still LOVE this set and the possibilities! Thank you for sharing you amazing creative spirit!

Good afternoon Sue and I must say that I too was surprised to see what a fabulous lacy effect was achieved with that particular die. I don't need to search for my favourite from the launch as this one is IT! I hope you will at some point do a video of it as I am definitely going to buy the die.Is it allowed to actually COPY what you have done?
All for now.
Stay safe.
