Pixie Snippets Week 201

My card for this week's challenge on Pixie Snippets is this one with several die cuts - a great way of using up the snippets of card which accumulate.  Of course another great thing to do with the smaller snippets is to make flowers.  Details of items used are given below.  The stamp set for the flowers also has a matching die set from Sue Wilson but for the time being I've contented myself with cutting them out with scissors. The background was one of my larger snippets which was embossed and sponged with ink to accentuate the design.  Flowers were stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

Background - Climbing Vine embossing folder Creative Expressions
Dies - Caribbean Island Collection Sue Wilson
Flowers - Shaded Peony Creative Expressions

  5. Cor . . . I know a few Playground Playmates that'll LOVE this luscious purple creation! It's SOOO pretty and feminine.

    PSST: Can you smuggle in some chestnuts in your satchel on Thursday so we can roast them by the bonfire. We're having a bonfire party on the 5th, but don't tell Miss!

    Hugs, Sarn xxx

  6. Beautiful card, Val. Love the colour and all the detail. I have just discovered that combining several die-cuts is an effective way of creating a fabulous card too. Elizabeth xx
