Pixie's Snippets Playground Weeks 313 and 314 - Prize G

Phew, still trying to make sample snippets cards for the Christmas/New Year giveaway! The finishing line is just in sight, huff, puff:

 I used:

- A6 white card, tent style

- a piece of patterned paper from the Wild Rose Studios 'Annabelle's Christmas' paper pack, trimmed to slightly smaller than the card front an glued in place

- snippet of white card for the image, which I cut using a die from the Creative Dies 'Wonky Stitches - Nesting Rectangles' set of dies

- then I stamped the sentiment and little 'penguin in a pickle' using stamps from the Sugar Pea Designs 'Tinsel in a Tangle' stamp set - aided by the Misti of course and using Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink

- coloured the image using Faber Casterll Polychromos pencils and Sansodor blending fluid, picking out colours from the backing paper

- mounted the image panel onto a slightly larger rectangle of red satin mirri card (which of course came from the snippets folder) - then glued the panel in place and called it done

I deliberately went for grey as baby penguins are grey in colour before they get their adult plumage :)

Here's today's prize:
Sugar Pea Designs 'Tinsel in a Tangle' stamp set and a Creative dies 'Wonky Stitches - Nesting Rectangles' set of dies. These are rectangles, as opposed to the squares I offered on Sunday BTW. 

I will split the prize if you don't want to play for both parts. Just state your preference in a comment and I'll take that into account when the time comes.

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 during this fortnight to be in with a chance :) Maximum of one entry please - to keep things fair for those who may not have time to craft - Mr Linky closes at 11am on Saturday 6th January.

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

We have just one more prize to go now - I propose to publish that 24 hours after this post goes live. That will give you about 36 hours to see if you want to play for it before the gates close on Saturday morning at 11am UK time. Do remember that I'll also be turning off commenting on all the prize posts at the same time.

A new Mr Linky will appear on Sunday. There will be something to be won as usual and I'll also include the names of those who won sand erasers in the same post.

Then we should get back into the usual routine - thank goodness. I'm ever so slightly worn out and in need of a very long lie-down in a darkened room!

What a darling card, Di!! I love penguins, and did not (consciously) realize that the babies are grey!! I was also not aware that I'd missed visiting on here on Tuesday....getting back to work after the holidays has really messed me up. I'd love to be put in the draw for this fab prize :) Thank you!

Oh my, I just ADORE this fun little and cute penguin!!! :) I didn't know that they are grey when they are babies, thanks for the notice! You colored him so well, and love the little touch of mirri cardstock on the back, it makes the dp layer more festive.
Surely I say YES for the prize, love the stamp set and the Wonky Stitches rectangle die set!! :)
So sorry to have entered a card early, I made other two cards with much more snippets, after my enter!

Sandy said...

Another cutie, Di. I had to smile on your comment about baby penguins being gray. I have a habit of googling images of any animal I'm coloring, but I don't think I've noticed that about the baby penguins.
Anyway, yes please on this prize.

Jeanne H said...

Janis said...

Super-sweet card with the little penguin all tangled up! That's me, for sure, trying to unravel Christmas lights, tinsel garland, ribbon, gift wrap tape.... you name it! lol.. Yes, please, to this lovely prize package!!

Hoping you will be able to get some rest soon!! Your sentiments express the same way I feel after my annual Cat Lovers Hop with the marathon of prepping, card making, and posting. Just lock me up in a dark, padded room for a few months afterwards and I will be right again (sort of).

Thank you for all your work and for these generous giveaways!!! Hugs!
