Sneak Peak Poppies!

Happy Saturday,

Here is the first sneak peak of my new collection which launches on Monday evening at 6pm oil Hochanda.  I really thought that january needed some brightening up so today I am sharing the first sample using my new collection.

This card features the new Oakham lattice die set and the stamp and matching poppy die set.

The poppy has a stamp and matching die plate the same as my poinsettia making the poppies really easy to use.  here I stamped them in black ink onto red crafts too linen card shaped them and made up the poppies, using the centres included with the die, un the centre.

I love the mix of the red, black and the pop of green ( these are new foliage dies as well!)

I'll share another sneak peak on Monday or tune into the show on Monday evening at 6pm to see the whole collection.
