Poinsettia

Hello bloggers!  We are to the end of our mini launch with this post.  This blog post is dedicated to showcasing the new Industrial Chic Poinsettia set.  You just need a poinsettia to play with when it comes to Christmas, even steampunk ones!  The petals are full of little cogs, but you can always use just the outer cutting edge if you want a regular non steampunk flower for your cards, so more versatility!  There are 12 dies in this set, with a selection of three sizes of flowers and matching leaves.  For the last time, I will ask you to leave your comments.  I will announce the winners on August 16th in the afternoon so don't forget to check back then.  I hope you have enjoyed my rather different Christmas offering!  All for now,
Sue x

Afternoon Sue and all Wilsonettes, gosh this is gorgeous, there are so many poinsettia dies on the market but I think that this is one of the top of that list, this is going to be a very, very popular die.

Hi Sue, a gorgeous card to end the mini festive release with. It could well be my favourite. This has been a fabulous launch, all the dies are super and so very different. Thank you for this release and for showing us how they can all be used, your inspiration is endless. Once again thanks very much Sue.

Hi Sue, one always needs Poinsettias at Christmas and these are great. Love the card. Have really enjoyed seeing all these new dies, so different to the usual Christmas Dies I have a long list of "must have"dies my problem is deciding which ones to order first. Thank you for giving us all the chance to win one.

Scottydog said...

Once again you have saved the best to last. A must have for me. Thank you so much Sue for something different. We weren’t expecting new Dies from you so you have given us all a bonus. Good luck everyone in the draw.

graham Brand said...

I agree, you must have poinsettias for Xmas and I "need" another one! This one!
It's just gorgeous! Have thoroughly enjoyed this mini launch. Thank you!

Wow, love the new pointsettia die

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, considering that I have all of your other poinsettia dies I think it would be rude of me if I didn't add these to my collection, cogs notwithstanding. These dies certainly make a beautiful card and a lovely one to finish with. Who would have thought that I could actually like some steampunk lol. From the comments I would say that this surprise mini launch has gone down very well and you really should be proud of yourself yet again.

cr@fty said...

Hi Sue
You've definately saved the best until last (although I love all the others lol!). You certainly have a unique talent who else would think of a steampunk Christmas? This launch has been so unusual and beautiful and even if you don't like steampunk there is something for everyone! I love the card in the red and white combination.

Well that was all quite spectacular. The last die on offer is gorgeous and so is the card that you have created using it. You must be feeling so happy with them all. I am sure anyone will be happy to have the chance to own one of these lovely dies. You can now relax a little hopefully.

Hi Sue

Oh yes I love these, poinsettias are my favourite and they always creep into my Christmas cards even when I say no poinsettias this year.
To be honest they are often used on non Christmas cards too!

Beautiful Sue, like most of the dies in this set they seem to cross the divide between delicate and steam punk. As Phil Martin would say they are most definitely "pretty steampunk" lol.

I wish you great success as always Sue
