Pixie Snippets Playground

I've just realised I've not posted anything since the card for the Playground last Sunday - this week has just disappeared without me noticing where it went.  For my card this week I used a fairly large snippet of Centura pearl card which has been embossed using a free folder which came with a magazine some time ago and which I understand was so popular that it actually went into general production and was bought by lots of people - not surprised really, I love it.  The embossed piece was sponged with blue ink and the flowers were stamped using the same colour.  I also sponged a smaller snippet of pearl card to cut out the sentiment.  I had these leaves lying around from another project so they came in handy to finish off the card.

Today started with blue skies and sunshine, albeit a frost as well but I'm so glad I went for a nice walk this morning because by lunchtime it had come over really dark with rain and I don't think the forecast is too promising for the next couple of days - good crafting weather though.

Embossing Folder - free with magazine
Flowers - Flower Shop by Stampin' Up with matching pansy punch
Sentiment - Crafter's Companion die

Leaves - from Jar of Love die set Stampin' Up


  1. I love this embossing folder and you've made a beuatiful card with it Val


  2. Fabulous use of that brilliant EF Val! The flowers are just perfect - sigh, I have three vellum flowers on my desk here - now begging to be used to CASE your card!

  3. I love this embossing folder Val and was lucky enough to win one from the playground a month or so ago. I love the card you've made using this folder.

  4. A beautiful card, I love the colours and the lovely embossing folder you've used. xx

  5. A really beautiful card Val and I love the soft colours you've used. I love that embossing folder. I have the SU flowers and punch and find I have to fiddle so long to get the flowers in place to punch. Great work. Barbxx
