Off to visit the Playground with my latest Snippets card - Sarn is in charge this time and she has shown us a great selection of cards using up some of her snippets - plenty of great ideas here for inspiration. There are also two super Crafty Individual stamps on offer as a prize for a lucky person whose name is drawn.
I've been improvising a bit for my card with an idea which I saw for using a Penny Black fancy frame die which I must say I was tempted to order but unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) it was out of stock. I pulled out some snippets of cream pearl card and die cut two square frames which I sort of interlaced and placed onto an inked and stencilled background before adding some leaves and a flower. Everything apart from the base card has come from my snippet mountain.
If you want to know who introduced me to the Penny Black fancy frame you can see a card HERE where it has been used in a conventional way - I do like the look of this frame and might keep an eye out for it to come back into stock!! This is a blog where I often become tempted - thanks Di, (I think 😉)
