Poppies ...

Hi Everybody,

This beautiful  Spellbinders Poppy die was the first one to sell out on  Create and Craft  and it doesn't surprise me in the least.

It was really easy to make and creates a very vibrant and poignant flower.

It was the 100 years anniversary of World War 1 when this was shown and so of course everybody wanted it ... and there will be Novembers commemoration too.

I showed viewers how to make this for themselves and I have promised to do a tutorial in video on each of the flowers ... but it will take me a little while to do them all

This card was layered in red and white and is a 15cms square ... the paper was in a free paper stack with a magazine I subscribe to and it came in very handy for this particular card.

The verse is from Crafters Companion  and it is surrounded by the matching pearls from Want2Scrap

The ribbon is from my "Stash" but the bows centre is from Wild Orchid Crafts  and finishes everything off nicely

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  29. Hi Christina I was just wondering if you can tell all the rest of us poor suckers who couldn't buy the spellbinders you were selling when they will be available? I am saving my money so I can buy them all. I'm so excited to make my own flowers!
