- A6 white card stock
- a snippet of pale pink pearlised backing card, embossed using Crafts-Too's 'Scrollwork Frame' folder. I really wanted to use pale blue but it just wasn't the right shade of blue so I defaulted to my old favourite - pink
- Wedding cake made using a brilliant new die set sent to me, for my very own use, by the super-generous Mary Mac (currently on her trip to Oz). The cake was cut from a snippet of white card that's already 'flittered' (from Hobbycraft originally), and the stands were cut from a snippet of matt silver card. Just added small pearls from Mei Flowers (took flipping ages too) plus a flower and pearl on top
- small strip of matt silver peel off 'cos the cake looked like it was being levitated, and still does a bit, snort!
- sentiment stamped in silver is from SU's 'Congrats' set and it just fits into SU's 'Word Window' punch, which was then layered onto another snippet punched using SU's 'Modern Label' punch and another little snippet of matt silver card. A couple of pearls either end to finish it off
And the Playground has been really busy this past week, thank you all so much for coming to play! As always, I really could show every single one of your lovely makes, but am just picking a few:
That really was a very quick scamper through so do please remember to look at last week's Mr Linky thumbnails - there are lots of gorgeous makes and techniques to give you inspiration.
And we have a new little Playmate joining us this past week, do hop over and say 'Hi' to Lynn - she made this lovely card, and also has real life dachshunds too - I promise you that Rambo will steal your heart when you drop in:
Last week's prize of the 'Tube Wear' stamp and those lovely fresh-looking embellishments donated by Sue was won by:
This week's prize was donated by Mary Mac - and it's a set of the fabulous Memory Box 'cake' dies I used today - it's two sets in fact 'cos the cakes and stands are individual sets! Of course, you don't have to use them in tiers as I did - Mary made this card recently, with them in a 'window':
I'm scheduling this on Sunday early afternoon having just washed all the downstairs tiled floors.They've now dried and Len is due home soon from archery so before he left I did warn him about 'little piles' left on the field yesterday by ponies and horses. 'That's OK, they were on the cricket pitch' said he smugly. Err, I happen to know there's one HUGE pile donated by the Shire horse......... right in the middle of the archery area so, trust me, his feet will be inspected before he even puts one toe inside the front door!
Have a lovely week - and keep snippeting!
