Stampin' Up! Spiral Flower Die Sneak Peek - Bouquet with 13 different flowers from the one die!
Here's a bouquet of flowers I made last week, all with just one die!! Stampin' Up! demos are lucky enough to be able to pre purchase and play with new products coming out before they are available to the public and I think this one is brilliant!! This spiral flower die will be available in the new Stampin' Up! seasonal catalogue starting next week January 28 and not only that "Sale-a-Bration" starts at the same time so for every $90 of products purchased customers get to choose a "freebie" product from the Sale-a-Bration catty as well!
I actually created this bouquet to demostrate ways to use this great new die at a fun "team meeting" last Saturday organised by our team leader, Linda Higgins, SU meetings are always fun and inspirational, getting together with other crafty, like minded ladies!
Well a quick summary of the bouquet is except for the little white buds (I cut half the spiral in half to make these smaller ones) the rest are all created in SU Crisp Canteloupe variations: standard cardstock, designer series paper, Co-Ordinations cardstock, white cs coloured with Crisp Canteloupe ink, bleached cs, fringed (we've got new Fringe scissors too), sanded, distressed and split cs, embossed, sponged and my favourite was to actually do a "double" flower with two spirals together (just start rolling the first and add in the second one just a little further along) and all different types of looks can be created!
My best tip of advice is to "spritz" your spiral with water before you start rolling so it's nice and soft and pliable so you don't end up with a stiff, creased looking flower. Looking forward to sharing and creating with this great new die with my customers in the next few weeks! Thanks for looking............Sue :)
