I hope you are all indoors, safe and cosy, while we sit out the storm. My mantra for now is 'no matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow' ... I just hope it can be sooner rather than later!
On to today's share, a card using snippets - well, any excuse to pop over to Pixie's Snippet's Playground again - and inspired by a lovely card spotted on LeAnne Pugliese's blog, Wee Inklings, way back in July 2013 - see the original here - and a scrap of card on which I'd tried out the Flower Background stamp from Stamp's Away.
So now, to make the topper I used a die from Docrafts X-Cut Nesting Dies Homespun Hearts. The black mat is a faux die, made by tracing round the same die on to a snippet of smooth black cardstock, and cutting out by hand.
The blue cardstock, American Crafts, was cut to fit the front of the A5 size white scalloped edge card base. It's barely visible on the photograph but there's a panel stamped across the card - stamp from Docrafts Boofle Urban Stamp Textured Backgrounds ... the one that looks like a piece of knitting.
The sentiment, stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, is from Sheena's A Little Bit Sketchy Only Words - From The Heart collection.
All the other materials are OGooS too. I'm still sticking to my resolve to use it all up before purchasing more ... just polishing up my halo :)
This is a busy cardmaking week for me ... two birthdays and Valentine's day, as well as a couple of challenges to make for, all keeping me busy.
The EM has finished painting the dining room walls now so we can call that room done. Next on the agenda is the kitchen.
Update on the barometer tapping - the glass is way down again :( No surprise really ... we've just watched the news and seen the reports of the terrible devastation the storm is wreaking throughout the UK so, if you are at all affected by any of these extreme weather conditions wherever you are, please do keep warm and dry, be careful and, above all, stay safe.
