Snippets Playground #425

 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 😉)

Stencil - by Sheena Douglass Creative Expressions
Frames - dies from Creative Expressions
Leaf and Sentiment - stamp and dies from Stampin' Up
Flower - very old Marianne die with small punched flower added


  1. What a lovely improvised frame you created, but the main focus of the card is just amazing! I absolutely love this one!

  2. Yes, Miss Di can be a good enabler can't she?!!!
    I absolutely LOVE this snippets card Val. I like how you did the frames and how you arranged the other die cuts on them plus the lovely inky background.

    Thanks for submitting your homework to the Snippets Playground! Meet me in the Treehouse later for lots of fun and perhaps a few cocktails? xxx
