Hello friends

A little late in asking you all if you had a nice weekend,
I hope you all did!
I spent Sunday with my crafty friends up in Milton Keynes.
I chose to have a little break from papercrafting and 
I'm trying my hand at rug making, just a kit to
create a cushion but using a rug making tool and the strands of wool.
I'm really enjoying it but it is slow progress.

Today...back to die cutting.

I love Poppies and with this new die from Spellbinders
(aptly named 'Poppies'!) -
I feel thorough spoiled!
There's 6 dies in the set making it possible to cut and overlay
the poppy flowers and leaves.

I used black cardstock to die cut the main stems and flower heads
and then overlayed with bright red.

The background paper is from my scrap box,
I'm never likely to see the bottom of that box!

The embossed detail of the poppy flowers is beautiful.

Poppies is available to pre-order on the website here,
we are expecting them in later this month.

Take care friends and remember tomorrow is 
Hump Day Giveaway as well as announcing last week's winner.


  1. A lovely card Christine, I think we all love Poppies. Glad you enjoyed your weekend and looking forward to seeing your cushion when it's finished.

  4. Morning Christine,
    Lovely card and die set, saw this on C&C yesterday, wish you were doing the Spellbinders shows.
    Know what you mean about the scrap box, I gave a load to the brownies which I'm sure they put to good use.

  5. Hello Christine
    I too love Poppies been my favourite flower since I don't know when!
    Watched Dawn make this yesterday so pretty!
    Glad you enjoyed the weekend.
    Love Marg

  6. Morning Christine, I love poppies, and we are coming up to the time of year when they will be in the forefront of our thoughts !! A lovely card and beautiful dies, I would decoupage them up and bling them up, they are gorgeous.
