Still having problems staying online and my provider doesn't seem to have come up with a definitive answer, and therefore a solution, to the problem either so just nipping in while I get the chance!
Pixies Snippets Playground - Week 110 because it used up the scrap of patterned paper leftover from the Peony Triple Layer Card created a week or so ago and posted here.
Using a Stamps Away Patchwork Template made this a super simple card to put together. The red cardstock base is 5½" square, made by tracing round the outside edge of the template.
Next, the template was placed on to the piece of patterned paper, the inside edges were traced round and the shapes cut out to create the patchwork.
The easiest way to put the pieces together is to lay the template down on the base and place the shapes in using the template as a guide. I did sponge the edge of each shape with Ranger's Black Soot distress ink before gluing them into place.
Just for a complete change I chose to use two stamps instead of the usual - that is, usual for me - one. The 'With Love' stamp is from Sheena's A Little Bit Sketchy Only Words, From the Heart collection and, an old favourite, the 'Flowers Are Poetry' is from Hero Arts. Both were stamped using a Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad.
The final touch is the decoration in two corners - those crystal gems have been in my stash since Adam was a boy!
Just because I have had limited opportunity to blog, comment or snoop, doesn't mean I haven't been busy. Definitely not! It's all go at Casa Worthington :) For example, I finished off a little pile of hexagons to send in support of the charity drive, Crochet for Kidneys, mentioned on Lunch Lady Jan Fabric Frenzy here.
Yesterday was spent arranging some of our vast book collection on newly built shelves ... yes, the EM has had his handyman overalls on again and put up shelves in the two recesses in the dining room :))
Those were the last boxes left to unpack after the move. Not bad, it's just taken us 12 weeks to get to this stage!!! Progress indeed :)
Right, hope to be able to post again soon ... access to Internet allowing. In the meantime, I hope you are all well and having a good week.
Take care and stay safe wherever you are.
