Pixie's Snippets Playground - Weeks 260 & 261 - Prize G

Phew, still churning out cards here to showcase the five year celebratory giveaway! This card was great fun to play around with, especially as the Misti made placing all the different stamps so easy:
I used:

- 5" x 5" square white card blank

- snippet of white card, trimmed to just slighter smaller than the card front

- Penny Black 'Sweet Snowman' stamp and Memento 'Tuxedo Black ink pad to stamp the whole image onto the white card panel and also the scarf part onto a little snippet of Dovecraft 'Back to Basics Christmas - Modern' paper which I trimmed around once stamped

- coloured the snowman etc. using Pro markers to pick out the colours in the scarf then glued the scarf in place. The stars on the parcel were coloured using a Signo silver pen as I knew I'd be adding more touches of silver to the card

- then took the Uniko ''Stunning Snowflakes' stamp set and added the sentiment first, using Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink. I love this sentiment - always makes me smile

- then added some snowflakes using stamps from the same Uniko set and a Delicata 'Silvery Shimmer' ink pad

- ran a silver Calligrapher pen around the edges of the image panel before gluing it onto the card front

- final touch, some iridescent sequins

Of course, this is today's prize:

A Penny Black slapstick 'Sweet Snowman' stamp and a Uniko 'Stunning Snowflakes' stamp set. I won't be splitting these as they make a great pairing plus I just worked out how many parcels I'll need to package up and send out once all this is over!

At the end of all of the celebrations I'll do a massive draw session for all the prizes using the one Mr Linky - which is on the main snippets post HERE - so you do need to have entered one snippets make over on that post to be in with a chance :) Maximum of one entry please - to keep things fair for those who may not have time to craft.

Just leave a comment on this post if you would like the chance to win today's prize.

Eemeli said...

Not sure why the stamp seemed kinda big on the card. I had to check if you had used smaller cardbase than usual, but no, it is the stamp that is an absolutely eye-catcher on this. Don't get me wrong, I do love you creation and the big beautifully colored snowman. And 'cause I need to know the exact size of the stamp, it means _yes_please_ for the prize (keeping fingers crossed).

Hugs,
Eemeli

Jane Willis said...
