Pixie Snippets #338

I'm just making a quick dash into the Playground - between the raindrops and falling leaves - such a rough night and today isn't much better here.  As always there is a lovely prize on offer and Di has made a great card for inspiration as well as giving us updates about the newest furry playmate.

My card uses a piece of rather garish background paper which I toned down with some gesso before over stamping with various swirls.  The rest of the card is made from snippets of card which have been die cut and the flowers utilised a two stage stamp set which I particularly like.  The fancy shape only comes in one size as a die so I cut the darker one in half vertically before popping the pieces  carefully behind the stamped layer.

Swirls - various stamps from Creative Expressions
Flowers - stamp set from Stampin' Up
Border - die from The Works
Flower panel and sentiment - dies from Stampin' Up


  1. Love the dramatic look of this card Val! Clever idea with the die as well. Missed you being in the Playground, hope all is well with you.

  2. I love this beautiful card Val and the way you've dulled down that background paper with the gesso before over stamping with the swirls.

  3. Hi Val

    What a great way to use up some of the more "in your face" papers that we all have but can't part with!

    Gorgeous stamp too!

    Hope all is well at your end.

    Love Jules xx
