Sunday Snippet - Purple Medallion Card

Hello Everyone

I'm a bit late today and yesterday didn't happen at all ... in fact it's been a very non-productive weekend so far. However, I do have this little snippet card, made a couple of weeks ago, to share with you and our favourite wee pixie, Di, over at Pixie's Crafty Snippets Playground - Week 73.

It's a simple little card made to use up that snippet of purple Papercraft paper. The layout couldn't have been  easier or quicker to put together. The medallion was stamped in purple ink on to white card, cut out and blinged up before adhering it to the card front. The ribbon and gems were found in my stash mountain :)

  • white card base
  • snippet of Papermania Capsule Collection, Bilberry
  • Stamps - Amy tangerine Aspire stamps set for the medallion shape and Wild Rose Studio Everyday Greetings
  • Ink - Whispers Archival Rio Purple
  • Quickie glue pen and Berry Fizz glitter
  • purple grosgrain ribbon and lilac gems from stash
The book giveaway: I would have posted yesterday to announce a winner of  the book giveaway, except there wasn't one - no takers at all. And that was the last book I have to giveaway. Thank you to everyone who has participated - my bookshelf is looking a lot less crowded now :)

The Boss had her booster yesterday and has been sulking ever since. She's getting on, 72 in human years, has sore ears and is a bit stiffer than she used to be, but otherwise doing just fine. But,oh, you should see the carry-on to administer ear drops ... another reason in her book to sulk. It looks as though we have a hard 10 days ahead of us :(

Time for a restorative cuppa, I think :)

I hope you have all had an enjoyable weekend. 

Happy crafting,  


  1. Hello Elizabeth. Sorry to hear your weekend has not been so good. I like your snippets card. I must try & join in again. Your swap card is on it's way. I have been away in Holmfirth again since last Sun. I was also at SU Regional Event last Sat so did not see your book give away or would have entered. Hope your week goes well & you like your card.

  9. Hi Elizabeth. Great snippets card and I love the simple yet so effective design. Don't tell anyone but purple is fast moving up the charts towards pink with with me :)

    Have a good day, I'm late checking the Playground, sorry!!

    Hugs, Di xx

  10. Lovely use of stash Elizabeth, wish I could get round to doing some of this. I always seem to have a problem that I don't seem to have any embellishment in the right colour to go with 'that' bit of paper.
    Love all your cards.

  11. Beautiful CAS card Elizabeth, I love the purple combo :) Cathy x
