Di tirelessly organises and runs Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge. The idea is to help us use up all those scraps of paper and card, ribbon and wool that we all hoard. You can enter using just one snippet and there are many, many great ideas for using up all those bits and pieces.
Di has just celebrated 7 years running the playground and we want to thank her.
The details and the link for the blog hop are here.
A few weeks ago I showed a card I'd made using die cut white flowers. I cut out 9 then realised when I looked at them properly that they were not all the same shade of white. As Di said, who knew there were so many shades of white before they started card making?
So I cut some more for that card and then had some left over.
Here is the card made using the leftover flowers.
I painted a little Perfect Pearls powder on to the flowers so they have a little shimmer. I love the look of the coloured centres though they do remind me of yummy chocolate sweets and I don't really need to be reminded how good they are.
I was still left with one flower so I used a scrap of inked paper and the window die which, very appropriately, I won in the playground, to make this card.
I had to use up another snipped to cut out the leaves so I still have enough to make 2698 cards before I run out of snippets.
Thank you Darnell for having the idea, organising this and contacting everyone to take part.
Thank you Di for the time you spend crafting, posting, commenting, choosing picks, choosing and posting prizes and creating a fun place for us all to meet in Blog Land. Also for all the encouragement you give to new crafters and anyone feeling a little down.
