When is a bow a flower?

As  some of you will know, I love to pattern build when crafting, especially when using my Clarity Stamps

These 2 samples use the Claritystamp Filigraphy Dolphins:

And this one uses the Filigraphy Hot Air Balloon

However, I have also found that you can do it with certain dies - Tattered Lace Peacock Die

At the beginning of May, at the Big Demo Day at Coleman's Craft Warehouse in Rushden, I got the chance to play with some of the new dies and stamps from Sue Wilson. However, some of you may have read on my Facebook page that on the morning of the demo, I just happened to knock a whole mug off coffee over all of them which resulted in them been thrown in the bin!!!!!

Anyway, every few months I get invited to the Big Demo Days at Coleman's Craft Warehouse and then a week or a few weeks after, I go back and do a workshop using the same products that I have demo'd. 

Here are the cards I made for the workshop today:

The flowers in the centre of the cards were made using the Sue Wilson Bow Stamps:

 You can also use the dies as well and here are 2 little display boards I made up to show the difference

Now I am not sure if Sue Wilson has already done this with the ribbon dies/stamps as I don't get the time to follow her blog or to watch all the TV shows - all of the above was created with me just "playing"

Here is a pic of the ladies from todays workshop (I remembered to take pics this time!)

Happy Crafting
