Pixie Snippets weeks 267 and 268

Here is my card for the fortnightly challenge in the Pixie Playground and I have to confess that despite trying to stay away from the newsagent's shelves I did succumb to picking up the magazine which was giving away a set of pretty stamps along with a nice teacup die.  I've used the die and a floral stamp from the set to make this card using up various snippets of paper and white card from my stash.  The background paper is from a pad which I must have had for many years and everything else was using up bits and pieces.  The flowers were stamped, coloured using alcohol pens with a touch of pencil and then fussy cut with scissors.  After die cutting the teacup I used a snippet of darker blue card to pop behind the detail areas.

Flower Cluster - stamp from teacup set free with magazine
Doily - Docraft die


  1. What a lovely card Val! The little teacup die is adorable with the posy of Spring flowers in. Great design altogether and super use of snippets as well.
