Elegant Poinsettia...

Happy Tuesday,

Another day another sneak peak and I have to admit todays reveal is my favourite if the whole christmas collection ( the collection is split into three parts with something different each month)  Its the poinsettia!
When I first came up with the Flower Plate idea I wanted to do the matching stamp, with registration marks, and die set as an elegant poinsettia as I love the patterned poinsettias on cards but the thought of stamping 6 stamps then trying to match up 6 individual dies for each card really put me off!

For today's sneak peek i chose this card which ties together the poinsettia stamp and die with the Snowflake lattice it worked so well as a gerbera I thought why not?!?

There is also, hiding in the background, some new Swirl ivy.

Hopefully here you can see tall the detail of the Poinsettia I can't wait to demo how this is so easy on the show on Thursday and through friday.

Its hard to see on the picture but I finished this card with a new product form Izink the Finishing spray, I simply love this product and cant wait to share it with everyone.



  1. Morning John, oh I am so looking forward to the shows to see the new collection in all it's glory, yes I know it is over a 3 month period but that gives us something to look forward too. As to this creation, well what can I say but brilliant, I am loving these poinsettia's and the spray sounds interesting want to see that.

    I am sure you are busy, busy, busy with all your samples and having lot's of playing, oh I want to play, ha ha xxx

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx
